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.

The greatest day in mobile food vending is back. On September 12, the Vendy Awards will take place on Governor’s Island honoring the greatest in New York’s food vending community. Tickets are still available for purchase here. For the next few weeks, I’ll be documenting all of the nominees in three categories.

Rookie of the Year: Coney Shack

We have lots of Asian tacos in New York, but nobody is focusing on fusing the flavors of Southeast Asia with Mexican tortillas. Lawrence Mach has changed that with Coney Shack, his eye-catching truck that started in Coney Island and now travels all through Manhattan with his tacos, quesadillas, and hot dogs.

Dessert of the Year: Play J’scream What’s the biggest problem with soft serve? It inevitably drips down the cone and onto your hand, making clean-up a mess. The J-shaped cone was introduced in South Korea and is now making the rounds in New York via Play J’scream, where the corn-pop ice cream cones are both drip-free and gluten-free.

Market Vendor of the Year: Burmese Bites

I wish I had made it out to Queens International Night Market much earlier in the season. It’s a wonderful gathering of the international Queens community and features some of the most exciting and diverse food in the city. Burmese Bites sets up every weekend and offers up authentic dishes like palata (a hand-stretched flatbread with a curry dipping sauce) and shwe taung kaukswe (noodles tossed with chili and roasted bean powder).
