Do you know the feeling you get when you’re watching a movie alone and the main character makes a funny joke or a great The Wire reference, at which point you automatically survey the room for your friends’ shared approval of what was just said?

Tips on Taking This Challenge

Tips on Taking This Challenge

I know, I know, everyone who has read Malcolm and I’s posts on this challenge over the past couple of weeks are itching to start one of their own. Who wouldn’t want to get into the fun and bliss of struggling to eat food that you don’t really want each and every day from moving restaurants. Anyway, before you get started, I thought I would hand down my little black book of secret tips for eating New York City food trucks for 30 straight meals.

Comparing and Contrasting Challenges

Comparing and Contrasting Challenges

MealDriven was not our first rodeo. We have challenged ourselves with food before. A little over a year ago, Malcolm and I consumed only Chipotle Mexican Grill for 30 straight days, for our Guac is Extra challenge. The current Meal Driven challenge was much different, but in reflection there were many similarities in the experience.

The Last Supper

The Last Supper

…actually meal 30 was lunch. I headed to mid-town which believe it or not I had not been to yet. The urban oasis that I imagined was just that, a fertile breading ground for food trucks. However unlike the classic desert oasis, this one opens around 11am and closes at 4pm promptly.

Fourth Meal (Trademark Taco Bell)

Yesterday I hit the big time. I really stepped my game up. I had 4 distinct food truck meals. I had been averaging about 2.2 trucks a day, so this was a big accomplishment. I’ll wait a minute for you to contemplate the magnitude of my day…

Hey, have you ever eaten shawarma or tacos before? Cool, me too.

I’ve found myself in a similar predicament as Ben during this challenge.  I’m at the point where i’d rather starve myself than eat food from another halal/hot dog/taco vendor.  Lucky for me, 95% of the food trucks in this city fit directly into these categories. Yay! I have found some decent alternatives, though.  I’ve eaten a nice chicken pesto crepe from Craffles in Columbus Circle, had some tasty empanadas from Nuchas Empanadas on Broadway and Prince, and had some fairly decent general Tsaos Chicken from a truck on West 4th near Mercer named Authentic Chinese Food or something clever like that.

I am just going to come out and say it, Food Truck food just has too much taste! If you know me, that is the last thing you would think would come out my mouth – or go into it. Food with no taste has been my pet peeve for years, but after eating Mexican this, Korean BBQ that, Dumplings, Chinese Noodles, Halal, and other ethnic based foods, I am just yearning for a simple turkey sandwich on white bread with mayo (not wasabi or chipotle infused).
