Bagels, pretzels, hot dogs and pizza may have defined New York’s fast food scheme in the past, but nowadays there is so much more to choose from. If you get hungry while running from one meeting to another, there is no need of stepping into a crowded, air-con freezing Mc Donald’s (Or Wendy’s, or Dunkin’ Donuts, which seems to be all over the place) to get re-fueled.
Some of the street food stalls are not the healthiest of the bunch, but there are also some alternatives to the pieces of who knows what meat.
Not really that hungry? Have some munchkins, then.
Craving for something sweet instead?
If the mind and body can be satisfied with something else than solid food, solutions can be found on the streets.
If juice is not enough to relieve you from the heat, there is a better ailment. The following are not stalls, but trucks.
In addition to these more traditional choices, the New York streets are roamed by food trucks selling bit more upscale, or at least exotic, dishes.
By the way, all these pictures were taken during one walk in one afternoon! I can hardly imagine how many different options there are in total. I’ve heard rumors about food truck get-togethers, that sound interesting.
I did forget to take a picture of one of the many newspaper/magazine kiosks that sell snacks, and one of the fresh fruit stalls. This weekend I was also treated to an original “ices”, shaved ice with syrup on a cup. The thing melted within minutes, even though I am pretty fast when it comes down to that. Coming up: short introduction to all the ice cream stalls that are everywhere!
