The Morocho Burger from Morocho Peruvian Fusion

When in New York and I am in the mood for some Food Truck food, it seems that the best port of call these days, is to head over to Union Square. There are always a whole mass of Food Trucks lined up there and the only decision for me is to try a new…

Bubba Gump – One of my many Guilty Pleasures

I love Bubba Gump, I know that it’s cheesy and that as an adult I probably should eat in more grown up resturants, but forget that I am a big kid at heart and this is my kind of place. If I am visiting New York for more than a couple of days I just have…

Flushing – Very Authentic Chinese Food and Excellent Dumplings

Now is it a good idea to wander down random steps into a dimly lit basement beneath some shops? Well if you are looking for some really authentic chinese food in Flushing it is practically compulsory. These steps lead down into the bowels of the Golden Mall on Main Street in Flushing Queens, and into…

A trip up into Queens – Flushing Street Bao

In the beginning it seemed like a bad day for a food hunt up into Queens. Not because it was Queens but because we arrived in the middle of a massive thunderstorm. Luckily as we walked off the Main street subway at Flushing we were able to almost instantly huddle beneath the LIRR railway bridge…

Gorilla Cheese NYC Food Truck

Walking along West Montrose towards the Wilson Red Line from the Montrose Brown Line stop in the sunshine I saw a familiar face up on the wall and it created a brief flashback to the previous weekend. King Kong had clearly headed back over to New York from Chicago, perhaps he thought that everyone had forgotten about…

Beechers – Cheese Emporium NYC

  Just between Union Square and the Flatiron building is Beechers, it is actually right next to the new location of  ‘Craft’ Tom Coliccio’s resturant, so it is in good company. It describes itself as a store and cafe and it certainly was a striking and very pleasant space to eat lunch in.   I…

Seoul Food Wagon

I chanced upon the Seoul Food Wagon in Union Square on a small trip last weekend to New York City. It was such a good looking truck I felt I had to give them a chance and sample their fare. On occasion I really despair,  I stood in the queue, or line if you like,…

Phils Steaks – NYC – Cheesesteak wit wiz

Oh my Gawd, I was just hitting food truck after food truck. I had headed down on the red line just to hit up Union Square to see if the traders at the regular farmers food market were still there. On my way from the station walking along 14th St I bumped into Phils Steaks. With a…

Real Good Truck – NYC

I am a total sucker for a food truck and even if I have just eaten I can’t pass one by, even if I just have a taste. 20 minutes earlier I was walking out from the Chelsea Market with my meat pie from “Tuck Shop” and I was heading over to Myers of Keswick…
