Parked! food trucks event ’12

When has a year passed by already? Another year, another Parked! event.
A few new trucks on the road, adding to the number of participants. The lines weren’t so bad this time, some of the trucks had no customers actually. Are people getting tired of street food, or they’re just too familiar with their offerings already?
Also, some of the area restaurants had some presence with small tables and few offerings.

Anyway, snapped just a few pics this time, and mostly of the menus.
I had a delicious Connecticut style lobster roll from Red Hook lobster and a first time gelato from Amorino (verdict: good, but I wasn’t that impressed). The L’innimitabile (really?) hazelnut was almost too sweet but with good hazelnut flavor. Stracciatella was nothing special, as for the Caramello (salted caramel) not that caramel-ly. And it all melted in a mess before it was handed to me – it was warm outside but not that warm and we were in the shade anyway. I find that unacceptable.

The friend that accompanied me got a Phil’s cheesesteak which I never tried before but kept reading about it that’s the closest you’ll come to a Philly one in NYC. My friend said it’s good, but then again he never went to Philadelphia for a Pat’s or Geno’s. By the looks only, I find Phil’s unappealing – the meat is almost ground, the onions are few and wrong – nothing like Geno’s for example.

Same as last year, performances by young artists on the waterfront stage – a short movie after the pictures. Not sure of the band name, but I know the stilt-walker is Anya Sapozhnikova.


Parked! event – part III (and last)

Part I and Part II

Rickshaw Dumpling Truck started as a physical store (now they have two) and the truck was only natural to follow.

Wafels & Dinges is one of the oldest “new wave” trucks on the streets of NYC (if I’m not mistaken I think they started in 2005?) and they’ve been a success since the beginning.

Sigmund Pretzel started with a physical store at 29 Ave. B and soon their cart has become a traveling presence at diverse food events in the city.

Grillo’s Pickles sells at Whole Foods across 5 states in Northeast, from N.Y. to Maine. The cart is based in Boston, MA.

Mimi & Coco teriyaki balls are a spin on the classic Japanese takoyaki. Their version comes stuffed with shrimp, potato or sausage and get brushed with teriyaki sauce, hence the name or their product.

And although the lines were long, a good time was had by all.
