New York a la Cart

Recipes and Stories from the Big Apple's Best Food Trucks

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Divided into neighborhood sections (Uptown, Midtown, Downtown, the Boroughs, etc.) New York a la Cart will spotlight the best of the Big Apple's cart cuisine, profiling 50 vendors and including their most popular recipes. There are terrific "only in New York" stories here: the IBM exec who quit his six-figure job to flip Belgian waffles, the banquet hall chef who followed his dreams from Bangladesh to 46th Street, the second generation souvlaki masters carrying on their family traditions, among many others. With full-color photos that capture the local color as well as the delicious food, New York a la Cart is a celebration of the food-cart scene — but most importantly, offers more than 60 recipes so that readers can make their favorite street food at home.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 08, 2013 – Co-bloggers Penfold and Wallace have developed a loyal following due to their passionate reporting on New York's food scene, and they've summed up some of the city's best mobile dining vendors in this dense valentine to street food. Organized by neighborhood, the pair nicely showcases the city's diversity, preferring to single out one or two vendors of, say, ice cream or tacos, rather than attempting to offer a definitive list. Locals may balk at such discrimination (though they'll likely get the most out of each vendor's information, which includes Twitter handles), but readers interested in expanding their culinary tour of NYC and its environs will appreciate the book's breadth, highlighting stars like the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck as well as many others, less well-known. Each profile is accompanied by recipes from the vendor in question (a total of 100 recipes are included), but readers will reap the greatest benefit from the book's text, which covers street vending from all angles, such as the black market for permits which can go for as high as $20,000 to how to buy the best lobster to the evolution of street food in NYC.
