NYC food trucks | Mister Softee When my dad, a Brooklyn native, first took me to New York, he insisted that we get vanilla cones with sprinkles from Mister Softee before doing anything else. This ice cream truck was a staple of his childhood, and continues to be a classic purveyor of ice cream for the city.
NYC food trucks | Wafels and dinges The only thing that got me through astronomy lab on Monday nights was the beckoning aroma of the Wafels and Dinges cart parked on 116th and Broadway. At 9 o’clock sharp I’d be on my way to getting a liege wafel with nutella, speculoos, and strawberries. If you’d rather top your wafel with savory dinges (Flemish slang for “things”), try a chilli con corne, for a southwestern twist on your Belgian waffle.
