|Mac Truck NYC|
I visited the NYC Food Truck Festival 12 March 2017, for Blunt Squad TV Show Food Truck Segment.
The event, hosted by Grand Bazaar NYC, featured 12 gourmet food trucks.Thousands braved the freezing NYC weather to stand for hours to sample the food.
We got to interview representatives from 2 of the food trucks, the manager of the Mac Truck, NYC(Raphael) as well as the co-owner of The Empanada Sonata(Marlyse).
Raphael( Mac Truck NYC) showed us great hospitality, even though he was extremely busy serving the customers.They have delicious signature variations of mac & cheese, like buffalo chicken, BBQ pulled pork and bacon/cheeseburger, besides the classic version.YUMMY!!!They get my vote for the best food truck service at the festival!
Marlyse, who is also the lead singer of the band, Betty Rocker, spoke to us about how she and Keith Moran, a firefighter, started the Empanada Sonata which celebrates their mutual passion for food and music They offer a variety of empanadas, you can listen to music while waiting for the tasty treat.I sampled a Cuban Hibarito which is made with ham, Swiss cheese, mustard, pickles, topped with mojo sauce and instead of using bread they use tostones(fried plantains) which give it an interesting twist.The combination will give you a wonderfully exciting taste experience
