Favorite Street Food
 
I think I'm hungry or something, food topics keep coming to me.

One of the best things about living in New York city as a kid was the street food. Sabrett's frankfurters, Knish wagons, Lemon Ice carts and pretzel carts and roasted chestnut carts in winter. I miss 'em all.

Are there street foods in other parts of the Country and if so, what are they?

Taco and burrito wagons are all over here.

Tacos, especially carnitas tacos. The first I had were at a little gas station-turned-convenience store in Huntington Beach, CA when I lived there. Simple but sublime.

The best are the tacos al carbon and the bacon wrapped hot dogs.

The street cart pizza and hotdogs when I was in Chi-Town were AWESOME! I think I was eating every block... LOL

I have yet to make it to NYC though. The woman wants to attend a home Yankee game perhaps next season. I will be going for the street food. I have heard all the stories and much find out for myself. :p

Yeah, we have taco carts and that stuff, but you can't get a dirty water dog to save your life out here, let alone that killer red onion topping.

Working down next to NYU we got all sorts of food carts - Chinese food cart, Gyro food cart, Hot Dog cart, Breakfast sandwich cart and of course the pretzel cart.

I'd take any one of em' before a fast food joint in NYC. ;)

Dog, do they have a fed ex nearby?? My woman would kill for a NYC authentic cart dog.

And a pretzel cart??? This sounds AWESOME. :D

+1..when I worked in downtown Philly the food from the carts was better than any fast food joint. I am still amazed at some of the things that can be cooked in a cart small enough to tow home at the end of the day...but my weakness remains...

I spent a week in NYC when my daughter graduated from law school - while I'd never want to live there myself - the food is incredible. The carts are awesome and every corner grocery store has a specialty deli in it. I'm already to damn fat and thankfully I wasn't there long.

And yes, the real brick oven pizza is so damn good it probably illegal in many states...
