The 2013 Choice Streets event represents the trifecta of many similar food tastings: so much food, so many lines, and only so much time to sample all of the delicacies. Fortunately, I found that the results were just as satisfying as the Village Voice’s other event from March,
As I strolled an outdoor section of the Intrepid Museum, hearing the notes and bass of soulful music in the background, I happily munched on a candied bacon waffle in one hand (from Wafels and Dinges), and drinking a citrus/tea/green apple puree slush in the other (from Kelvin Natural Slush). I felt a great sense of contentment while perusing these twenty-six food trucks and realized how lucky I am to be living in New York City. For the record, I strongly believe that food trucks are an essential part of the future of dining, especially because their products benefit from portability and convenience.
During my time at Choice Streets, I recorded some audio highlights with the hope of sharing the experience with you. Think of the following as “the best of Choice Streets!” Please stay tuned for my full review, along with a great video of the event. Enjoy!
