Food Truck Food: Dec 27-30, 2011 – Korilla BBQ, The Frying Dutchmen, and Eddie’s Pizza Truck

Lunch - Dec 27-30, 2011

Lunch - Dec 27-30, 2011

For lunch this week, I returned to two trucks, tried a cart, and tried a new truck.

I actually worked six days this week, starting on Christmas day – Sunday, December 25, 2011.

I didn’t actually have lunch that day, having noshed and nibbled on the sweets to be found in the newsroom.

Then I had a Lean Cuisine on Monday to make up for it.

On Tuesday, December 27, I returned to the Korilla BBQ truck (Twitter: @KorillaBBQ). I had had their beef burrito and enjoyed it. But I wanted to try something else. I got a chicken rice bowl with all the kimchis and two sauces.

I think it was very well prepared, but it was a bit too much kimchi for me. Still, I maintain my recommendation that you check out this truck.

On Tuesday, I was outside when I purchased my lunch, but I did not get it from a truck parked on the street. Instead, for the first time, I got it from the Halal cart parked on the sidewalk. I had a lamb gyro. It hit the spot and at $4, the value is certainly there. Also, the guy (at the northwest corner of Hudson Street and King Street) was very friendly.

On Thursday, December 29, 2011, I tried something new – the Frying Dutchmen. They do burgers and chicken sandwiches, but their notoriety seems to come from their fries. Follow them at @Frying_Dutchmen.

I got the combo, which combines a sandwich with a medium fries, a drink, and a dipping sauce for $11.

My sandwich was the Classic Chicken Sandwich (fried), described on the menu as all white meat, boneless chicken breast, grilled or fried, served with lettuce, tomato, grilled onions, and pickles on a torpedo roll. It was delicious.

For my fries, I got the Traditional Belgian Style, described on the menu as “extra crispy, made from Idaho #2 potatoes topped with a little salt.” They were really great fries! I got the Baja Blast dipping sauce, described as a “mixture of sweet chili’s in an Aioli sauce.” It was a fun dipping sauce.

To be honest, I think the Frying Dutchmen will be an occasional indulgence, but you should absolutely give it a try!

I had been to Eddie’s Pizza Truck (Twitter: @EddiesPizzaNY) and enjoyed their pizza the other week.

Today, I returned to try something different.

I got the Salume sandwich, which was mixed cured hard salamis, arugula, parmigiano regiano, and olive oil.

It was quite nice. Not too heavy. Not too light. Delightful.
