WHAT’S FOR LUNCH?!?!?! The age old question that every NYC office worker seems to ask themselves right around that magical hour of noon. So in my never ending quest for a lunch that’s quick, reasonably priced and amazingly delicious, my coworker Dave and I decide to try MUNCHIE MOBILE (MM).Now a very special thanks to NY Street Food for running an awesome site that tells you daily, where the food trucks are located. On this particular day the truck is only 3 blocks from my office, so Dave decides to take the walk. The first thing you notice about MM is the truck is very purple, with a painting of a mouth on the sides of the truck. The menu is posted on the side and it looks a little something like this…
Since I’m starving I figure I better order something of substance that will hopefully fill me up, since how big can a burger from a street truck really be? I order a Fat Kitty which is a burger topped with bacon, mozzarella sticks, French fries, American cheese, lettuce, tomato and honey mustard. I figure for ten bucks this should be adequate enough to fill me up.
Dave returns to the office (sack of food in hand) and hands me a softball sized item wrapped up in tinfoil which interestingly enough seems to weigh about a pound. I open the foil and am greeted with a burger that looks like its bursting at the seams, the bun barely able to contain all that goodness. I cut the burger in half and proceed to take the inaugural bite; OMG…I’m in burger heaven!
The burger was incredibly juicy, beautifully seasoned and had a very nice “beefy” flavor. The multitude of toppings were actually the right amount since they didn’t take away from the beefiness, but rather complemented it very well; nice depth of flavors! The burger was definitely a good deal considering I actually couldn’t finish the whole thing, and definitely worth the ten bucks!
If the Munchie Mobile is ever in your area during lunch and you want a change of pace from the typical deli, pizzeria or fast food routine…give it a shot, you’ll be quite happy you did!!!
