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.

I’ve spent the last few weeks documenting the nominees for the Vendy Awards. It’s been exciting and rewarding meeting the hard working vendors and tasting their delicious food. But it was all leading up to this past Saturday when over 25 vendors congregated on Governor’s Island to feed hungry attendees and celebrate their hard work all year long.

This year, the big winner was Snowday who are dedicated to their social mission of employing previously incarcerated youth and serve maple syrup inspired dishes. Best Dessert went to Doughnuttery, Coney Shack was crowned Rookie of the Year, Home Frite swept the Market Vendor category, and Best Street Drinks was awarded to Renegade Lemonade.

All the proceeds go back to the Street Vendor Project to fund their advocacy work in fighting for better laws for the street vendors.

Below is a video that gives an overview of the exciting, lively afternoon. I’m going to start prepping for next year right now.

2015 NYC Vendy Awards

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: Lil Zeus Lunch Box

Greek street vendors used to be the norm in Midtown, but today there are only a handful left. Newcomers Lil Zeus Lunch Box are bringing the classic gyros and souvlakis back to the streets and the long lunch lines every day prove that people have been missing it.

Dessert of the Year: Booqoo Beignets

With Booqoo Beignets, Matt Pace is showcasing a special treat he grew up with in his hometown of New Orleans. Beignets, of course, are the greatest type of doughnuts – light, fluffy, and fresh. He pairs them with some creative sauces, like Chicory Coffee and Creole Vanilla that link back to his home cuisine.

Market Vendor of the Year: Home Frite

Another classic fried food to dip in sauces are french fried potatoes. Popular Smorgasburg vendorĀ Home Frite hand cuts their spuds and fries them to order. Tossed with an array of seasoning options (salt and vinegar, truffle oil, etc) and served with gourmet dipping sauces (lemon garlic aioli, chipotle ranch, etc), they are an addicting snack that disappears a little too quickly.
