New York à la Cart gets intimate with street food

A new book tells stories and offers recipes from NYC food trucks and carts including Hallo Berlin, N.Y. Dosa, Biàn Dang and many more.


In any metropolis full of striving immigrants, the word hunger refers to ambition as often as it does to food; but the connotations collide in every piece of meat served from a street cart. With their new title, New York à la Cart, bloggers and street-food aficionados Alexandra Penfold and Siobhan Wallace share the stories of many of the city’s popular food trucks and carts. Here’s a quick guide to just a few of the tales and recipes that Penfold and Wallace highlight from throughout the five boroughs.

New York à la Cart authors Alexandra Penfold and Siobhan Wallace read at the powerHouse Arena Tue 16, and appear with vendors in the Downtown Literary Festival Sun 14.
