Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NYC Food Cart Tour is my exploration of the hard-working vendors feeding NYC’s population every day.

Forget hot dogs. Halal food is probably the most ubiquitous food from food carts today. And that is because of an influx of Muslim immigrants into the city over the last few decades. The first halal vendor in Midtown is still going strong and serving the best chicken over rice in the city. Trini Paki Boys is a fusion of cultures named for the owners’ seven sons and nationalities.
