GYRO, DUMPLING & JERK: The Best Food Trucks On Wall Street

food trucks

New York’s hottest dining trend — the food truck —  has popped up on many corners of the Financial District.

Last month we asked you where you got your favourite “street meat.” The consensus is in — Wall Street foodies seemed to prefer Veronica’s Kitchen and Rickshaw Dumpling Truck. However, they don’t seem to be fans of DessertTruck or Kiflu’s Lunch Truck.

#15 DessertTruck Works

Located at 6 Clinton St

Rated 1.78 out of 4

'AMAZING chocolate bread pudding w/ bacon custard sauce... Goat cheese cheesecake is excellent -- creamy, without an overpowering essence of goat... Also, very very notable, the honey and rosemary ice cream.'

#14 Kiflu's Lunch Truck

Located at Nassau and Ann streets

Rated 2.00 out of 4

'In the yellow curry stew corner, sat a mix of soft cubes of potato, large sliced and diced carrots, cabbage, corn, peas and onions. But the real treasure was the boneless fried tilapia cooked in a garlic rosemary sauce with sliced onions and sauteed sweet red peppers.'

#13 Dominic's Italian Sausage

Located at Whitehall and Bridge streets

Rating: 2.00 out of 4

'The Philly Cheesesteak is enormous, and absolutely delicious. The sausage I got here (sweet sausage, covered with hot peppers, onions, and cheddar cheese) was particularly awesome because he turns the sausage upside down - so everything melts into this gooey happiness.'

#12 Jiannetto's Pizza Truck

Located at 100 Wall Street

Rating: 2.00 out of 4

'Awesome pizza truck! I frequent this truck for their eggplant parm. It's actually eggplant wrapped in a pizza crust roll served with tomato sauce on the side. It's excellent! I also love their garlic knots! Their pizza slices are grandma, which means none to barely there cheese. Sometimes ppl are surprised by this but it's really good. They do have a cheese shaker on the side for those that feel the need for more.'

#11 Elliniko Greek

Located at 30 Wall Street

Rating: 2.08 out of 4

'The grilled chicken was definitely a crowd-pleaser, tender yet slightly dry in a good way. The chicken was grilled so you could taste the charcoal/carbon flavour. Add that it being tender and well-seasoned, and it was a home run.'

#10 Pakiza Halal Food Cart

Located at 60 Wall Street

Rating: 2.09 out of 4

'The chicken and rice is a great deal and everythign is perfectly cooked. The service is fast (especially for it usually being one guy). And I was there when they were inspected by the health department a few weeks ago and everything passed (which is always a nice sign!)'

#9 Yogo Yogurt Truck

Located at Wall and Water streets

Rating: 2.10 out of 4

'I must say the yogurt was very good and tasty. However, I did not like the yogurt with the cookies. I usually never get anything but fruits/granola but the truck did not seem to have much of a variety on fruits. Btw, extra toppings are $1 each and it seemed pricey...'

#8 Little Ochi Hot Spot

Located at 15 Park Row

Rating: 2.13 out of 4

'The chicken is by far the best I've had in FiDi. Be forewarned, it's not got a lot of Scoville's in it (IE not 'hot'). It's a sweet sauce with a good selection of spices making up the flavour. The chicken it's self has a bit of a rub on it, and has been smoked to blissful perfection.'

#7 Love Truck Coffee

Located at 60 Wall Street

Rating: 2.17 out of 4

'The iced chai zing is the perfect mid-afternoon pickup. The vanilla latte is sugary but that's usually what I want. Service is quick and friendly, plus there's music.'

#6 Adel's Halal Food

Located at Maiden Lane and Front Street

Rating: 2.27 out of 4

'They offer the usual assortment of items revolving around lamb, falafel, or yellow curry marinated chicken. The typical order is either a gyro or meat with rice/salad. They have mild rice and spicy rice. For sauces, they have BBQ, hot, and tahini. You also get a falafel ball if you order the lamb or chicken. The rice/salad with meat is $5 and the gyro is $4.'

#5 Banh Mi Cart

Located at Pearl Street and Hanover Square

Rating: 2.33 out of 4

'Get the #1 (the original pork and vegetables), and say 'medium' spicy. They probably won't do the 'medium' - instead doing 'full-on' spicy which is SPICY - but it's worth a shot. It's hard to 'like' the cart, a small nondescript steel box on wheels, but the food is quite good, as is the Iced Coffee (a must actually).'

#4 Alan's Falafel

Located at 140 Broadway

Rating: 2.38 out of 4

'I had the falafel platter and was amazed at the amount of food! The falafels were flavorful and crispy on the outside/soft on the inside. The tahini sauce, eggplant, hummus were also great. Not a big fan of stuffed grape leaves but they weren't bad. The pita wasn't warm but tasted good.'

#3 Gyro House

Located at Cedar Street and Broadway

Rating: 2.50 out of 4

'Lamb gyro had very tender and flavorful meat, but was a drippy, greasy mess. The white sauce has a strong dill flavour which I was not expecting but wound up enjoying, tempered by the decent heat in their hot sauce. Also enjoyed the sauteed onions they add instead of raw, but still the grease was off putting enough that I will most likely not be back.'

#2 Rickshaw Dumpling Truck

Located at 66 Wall Street

Rating: 2.50 out of 4

'I tried their chicken and thai basil. It came with a side, and I chosed the sesame noodles. The dumplings were decent with the sauce. I asked to try their soy sauce but it was a bit too sour for my taste. the noodles were a bit on the dry side but I added whatever sauce I had left.'

#1 Veronica's Kitchen

Located at 125 Front Street

Rating: 2.70 out of 4

'Fall-off-the-bone jerk kitchen. I ordered a 'small' for 7 bucks with two sides, yellow rice and candied yams. It filled me up for the day. The rice had scotch bonnet in it according to my friend, Rob. Very flavorful. And the yams were perfect. Rob's goat roti - excellent. And the sorrel was delicious. I'd go here again and again and again.'
