I know not everyone works on 48th st. between 6th & 7th ave., so I’ve been trying to branch out whenever possible, and try places that while out of the way for me- might be your favorite lunch spot. Some of the places that might be close to you- but far from me that I’ll be hitting up in the next few weeks: ‘wichcraft, Burger Joint, Pampano Taqueria, Men Kui Tei, Zip Burger, Jiannetto’s Pizza Cart, & Arang- just to name a few.
The other day, I ventured out of my way (based on a suggestion from a reader) and tried the Indian food vendor cart on 53rd & Park. While I wouldn’t necessarily recommend walking too far out of your way to eat at this cart- it could possibly be one of the greatest deals in all of Midtown for anyone who works close to it.
Ordering is really simple. You have two choices, the vegetarian meal ($3.99) or the chicken meal ($4.99). Each day, both entrees will change- but the menu doesn’t. It’s either the vegetarian choice, or the chicken choice. Both entrees come with rice, dal (lentils), bread and salad (which is just some lettuce). On the day I was there, the vegetarian entree was mixed vegetables, and the chicken, was Chicken Tikka Masala.
