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…

Sorry about that rant, I think it was just the 25 straight meals of food trucks talking. It actually was a pretty good day though. I hit a lot of different types of trucks and foods. I started off at a typical “phone booth” style cart where I had a coffee and what I thought was going to be a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese. The cream cheese was cut in to a square in the center of the bagel, not yet spread, like they tend to do. The bagel was not toasted, but still looked good and I was dagg-on hungry, so I wasn’t being picky. As I bit into it I found out that the square was actually butter. No human hates butter, but an unexpected tasting with a mountain of the stuff is not what you want first thing. I am man of ingenuity though, so I wiped the butter down to a manageable amount and scarfed it down.

Next I hit Tribeca. I came across my most expensive, yet one of the better meals I have had. Urban Lobster Shack servers a variety of lobster rolls from wasabi lobster to old bay. I am not usually one to risk eating delicate seafood from a moving truck, but today I felt brave (also the truck and the man inside it seemed clean). I enjoyed a regular lobster roll with a side of cucumber salad. The $17 was well spent as it felt great to have the lightly mayo-ed lobster on a toasted bun hit my over flavored – agitated stomach. Combining the role with the coldness of the vinegar and dill based cucumbers was great. I felt like a new man after eating it. Bring on the spicy again!

After that, I ventured up toward midtown where I was planning on getting some Greek eats, but got caught in Flatiron, when I saw the BLT truck. When I walked up, I saw a list of burgers to choose from. YESSSS! Some more solid American cuisine. I had the “Turk” – a cleaver name they came up with the Turkey burger. It was delicious though in the end, topped with an amazing aioli and pickled onions.

Later that night I was riding high from my big finds earlier, when hunger struck. It was about 8pm when the feeling really hit me. 8pm is 4 hrs after the 4pm fear had originally kicked in. Side Note: The 4pm fear is the unsettling feeling that comes over me as 4pm rolls around. Most trucks go home at that time, which stinks, cause they only open at about 11am, which means I probably ate my lunch at 1pm, which means I have to think ahead to getting my dinner by 4pm. So each day of this challenge, I have an innate trembling fear that sets in when 3:30 rolls around because it might be the last chance I have – to not eat Halal food for dinner.

Anyway, long digress. I ended up finding the perfect 4th meal spot, Waffles and Dinges. Even better, they were demo-ing a new kind of waffle. I am a complete sucker for new stuff (I get the seasonal milkshake at McDonalds every time), so I obviously dove right in. The new creation was a potato based waffle topped with a balsamic glaze, scallions and bacon. Yes bacon! Needless to say it was amazing. I would describe it as a dense potato latke covered in a sweet molasses taste with a beautiful hint of salt from the bacon. The taste was so strong I couldn’t have had much, but the serving size was small and cheap at $3, so it was perfect.

A great end meal to great day. Only 5 meals left, so I got to make them as good as these.
