Something I’ve so far only seen in New York is this vast amount of food carts, selling soft drinks and hotdogs. You can find them in front of every major sight and they are mostly run by veterans, proudly showing their rank and unit. But this is not only about a coke and junk food – some carts really have the product range of a normal eatery.
There are carts that sell different juices and you can find some with the quality of a normal restaurant; I had the best dumplings in my life so far from a food cart. For busy New Yorkers this is quite a normal way to get lunch. Try some pulled pork, pastrami sandwiches (with red smoked and spiced meat) and philly cheese steaks.
