This week, I tried a local deli and a relatively new truck, along with items I hadn’t tried from trucks I’d already been to.

Monday, January 16, 2012 was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and there were no food trucks to be found in SoHo. So, I tried Little Italy Pizza & Deli, located at 180 Varick Street. One of my bosses had recommended their brisket sandwich.

I got it with gravy. It was good, but for an even better brisket sandwich, go to the Kosher Nosh at 894 Prospect Street in Glen Rock, New Jersey.

On Tuesday, January 17, 2012, I got a gyro from the cart on the northwest corner of Hudson and Charlton. It was a busy day and I needed to just run out of the building and come back in and didn’t want to spend a fortune.

At just $4, it’s a great value!

On Wednesday, January 18, I returned to Rocco DiSpirito’s Now Eat This! truck. Follow it @NowEatThisTruck.

This time I got the turkey and black bean enchilada. It’s $6 and comes with a nice portion of salad, though the salad was a bit high on the onion count for my liking.

The enchilada is quite tasty and not heavy. It’s 310 calories, 9 grams of fat, low fat, and low carb.

On Thursday, January 19, I decided to return to Kimchi Taco. Follow them @KimchiTruck. I had already tried the tacos and this time I wanted to try a Kim-Cheesesteak.

You get your choice of meat (I chose Korean BBQ Beef “thinly sliced sirloin steak marinated with Korean spices”) sautéed with Kimchi and your choose of CheezWhiz or provolone (I went with CheezWhiz) served on a fresh baked Italian hoagie roll. It was $7.

Now as you scroll down, know that not all food looks as good as it tastes. For I fully admit, this isn’t the most visually appealing thing I’ve ever purchased.

But it was so hot and super delicious and really hit the spot! I loved it! Oh, I’m sure it was bad for me. But sometimes bad is so good.

On Friday, January 20, one of my co-workers alerted me to the presence of a truck neither of us had heard of. It was Domo Taco. They do Japanese stuff. Follow them @DomoTaco.

I got three tacos (one fish, one pork, one steak) and a side of yakisoba for $11 ($8+$3).

At $8, three tacos at Domo Taco are $1 more than three tacos at Kimchi Taco, however these were quite generously filled.

And they were all delicious! My favorite was the fish one, but each was an entirely different taste sensation! You can also get them in burrito or bowl form.

The side of yakisoba was also a generous portion at $3 and had shredded pickled ginger. It was the first time I actually liked pickled ginger, though I didn’t want anymore than was there. So, perfect portioning on the ginger.

They also have tater tots on the menu, but they’re not supposed to be your average tater tots. So, I’ll have to go back, get either a bowl or burrito and a side of the Japanese tater tots and let you know.
