At 2:00 p.m. on Friday, December 2, 2011, WCBS Newsradio 880 began broadcasting from its new home at 345 Hudson Street and with the move downtown came something we didn’t get at the CBS Broadcast Center on West 57th Street – the famous food trucks!

Being the foodie that I am, I used four of the five days of my first full week at the new location to check out some of the trucks – and my stomach was made quite happy.

On Tuesday, December 6, 2011, I went to the Korilla BBQ truck. It’s Korean food – burrito, taco, or bowl. Follow them at @KorillaBBQ.

I got a beef burrito with most of the fixings available.

It was delicious. The spice didn’t kick in until a bit after I started eating. I liked it a lot. Also, it didn’t stink up the newsroom – always a plus.

On Wednesday, December 7, 2011, I went to the Frites ‘N’ Meats truck – burgers and fries. Follow them at @fritesnmeats.

I got an Angus cheeseburger with fries and chipotle mayo dip.

It was a very good burger. The fries were quite nice, too. Plus, the whole thing comes with a free Dum Dum! Also, Frites gives you a card. Once you get ten, you get the next one free.

On Thursday, December 8, 2011, I checked out the Rickshaw Dumpling Truck. Yes, it’s dumplings from a truck. Follow them @rickshawtruck.

I got the pork dumplings with green salad.

The dumplings were good, but mildly ordinary. The salad was fresh with a nice dressing and crunchy stuff. I’ll try the chicken dumplings and noodle salad next time. Also, Rickshaw, like Frites, gives you a frequent dumpling card. For this one, get eight and the ninth is free.

On Friday, December 9, 2011, I went to The Eddie’s Pizza Truck. Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like – pizza from a truck. Follow them @eddiespizzany.

I got the Eddie’s Special pizza – sausage, meatballs, pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms, and onions.

The toppings were nice and fresh and the curst was wonderfully thin. It was certainly a tasty lunch and, at least temporarily, it satisfied my pizza craving.

Now, most of the food you see here isn’t what you’d call super duper cheap (at least not compared to a tuna sandwich at the CBS Broadcast Center’s “Station Break” cafeteria or bringing a Lean Cuisine to work every day), but you’d probably pay more in a restaurant, and the quality is there. So, it’s probably not going to be a daily thing for me (though I’d probably like it to be).

Either way, I look forward to trying more of the trucks.
