Forget the Emmys—the best awards of the week were given out for the top food trucks in NYC on Saturday on Governors Island. Winning the coveted cup at the 12th annual Vendy Awards was Tacos El Rancho in Sunset Park (at 44th Street and 5th Avenue). The family-run truck of Oaxacan grub impressively beat a collection of street food opponents including Traditional Chinese Cuisine and Gladis' Empanadas.
