The Best Street Food In New York City

Red Hook Lobster Pound Shrimp Roll

From Mexican to Middle Eastern and everything in between, food trucks have taken the food nation by storm. Since the second season of Eat Street premiered back in October, we’ve only gotten more stoked on all the new mobile eats that have been popping up.

This past week, the Village Voice hosted their first ever Choice Streets event in New York City. Featuring some of the city’s best food trucks — new and old — we couldn’t help but bring our empty stomachs over for a bite, or twenty. Check out some of our favorites, as well as easy recipes to make your own version or recreate the flavors at home.

1. Shrimp Rolls from Red Hook Lobster Pound (pictured above)

Tossed in mayo along with celery and chive, their shrimp salad was sandwiched between a buttered top split bun before it was sprinkled with a healthy dose of old bay seasoning .

Soft white bread came filled with salty beef, peppers, mushrooms and – of course – melted cheese.
