The best street eats and food trucks at the 10th annual Vendy Awards

Written by

Food trucks have become part of New Yorkers' everyday lives much like bodega coffee and subway rides. The Vendy Awards kick things up a notch by celebrating the city's best kitchens-on-wheels with a day-long feast and awards ceremony. On Saturday, more than 2,500 foodies flocked to Governors Island to eat from and vote for the best mobile eats in Gotham. At the competition, 25 food trucks and street carts vied for the coveted Vendy Cup, People's Choice, Best Dessert and Rookie of the Year awards. This year, the brand-new Master's Cup category pinned past Vendy Cup winners against each other in a smackdown judged by Iron Chef's Alex Guarnaschelli (Butter), Food Network's Adam Richman and City Grit's Sarah Simmons (Birds & Bubbles). Check out our photos from the day, including this year's winners and their best street eats.
