After reading sobore's thread "Top 10 cities for street food" I was thinking of all the fantastic carts I've been to and wanted to share and know everyone else's thoughts! Street carts of Austin, TX - http://austinfoodcarts.com/ I was only there once but it was a great treat. A treat for the eyes as well as for the pallet. I didnt end up sticking around for a full meal, but I got an order of fried pickles (my first time trying them) and I was pleasantly surprised. There were all kinds of carts from cupcake, to ice cream, to sandwiches and full on lunch platters; carnivore and vegetarian friendly. Halal Cart on 28th St & 5th Ave. New York City This guy shows up weeknights only as far as I know as I've never seen him there on Saturday or Sunday. I believe it to be superior to the carts on 53rd & 6th because there are three types of rice to choose from, veggie, white, or biryani; he throws in a falafel ball some fries and a fresh spear of jalapeno if you ask. Top it off with white sauce and hot sauce and you have yourself a supper fit for a king for the low price of $5. Grilled cheese on a stick and Shrimp on a stick vendors in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Dont let the idea of beach food scare you. Sure the cheese have been in a questionable cooler all day and the Shrimp has been under a film of saran wrap being beaten down on by the hot sun, but no no! Dont be deterred! The cheese is a common white cheese found all over south america and latin cuisine. Speared on a stick and upon your request dusted with oregano the cheese stick is grilled in a small hand held grill. After a few minutes and a few reais (R$3 a few years back) you're in business. The shrimp are fresh shrimp skewered given a healthy squirt of lime. Fresh and tasty for R$5. Anyone else?
