What to find at the NYC Food Truck Rally

Come to the NYC Food Truck Rally hungry, but not clueless of what kind of grub you can get. Here’s a sampling of some of the food trucks setting up shop in Grand Army Plaza this Sunday.

Eddie’s Pizza Truck

The deal: Craving pizza and in a hurry? Eddie’s produces the perfect on-the-go “bar pizza” for guests to salivate over, including the Eddie’s Special, topped with sausage, meatballs, pepperoni, peppers, mushrooms and onions. Minus toppings, they’re only 270 calories each.

They say: “It seems that food trucks have gotten more popular with the advent of social media,” said owner Derek Kaye. “We specialize in personal, thin-crust pizzas, and customize them with 25 different toppings.”

The Treats Truck

The deal: After a trip to Carroll Gardens-based Treats Truck and its mounds of baked goods, grandma’s brownies and cookies may not taste quite as good on the next visit.

They say: “I just know that so many people are having a love affair with food trucks,” said owner Kim Ima. “We make all kinds of not fancy, but old-fashioned fun stuff like cookies, brownies, rice krispies, and just a lot of things with sprinkles.”

Joyride Truck

The deal: This “joyride,” found Sundays in Park Slope usually, features Stumptown coffee and frozen yogurt, which you can top with a variety of fresh fruit or dessert-inspired treats, like Cap’n Crunch and Oreos. 

They say: “Truck rallies have been going on in other cities, but we haven’t really done that or organized it ourselves,” said co-owner David Blanich. “I’m glad we are catching up with the other cities.”

Kelvin “Slush” Truck 

The deal: These slush beverages are not your normal 7-11 slushee. They’re offered in a variety of flavors including Tangy Citrus and Spicy Ginger combined with your choice of various all-natural mix-ins such as pomegranate seeds and fresh chopped mint and basil.

They say: “It’s really going to be a big event,” said owner Alex Rein. “It just shows unity among us vendors that we’re excited about.”


Red Hook Lobster Pound 

The deal: This Brooklyn Flea regular uses fresh-off-the-boat lobster that is then fixed up in lobster rolls, bisque, and salads. 

They say: “Food trucks don’t give Brooklyn enough love,” said owner Susan Povich. “We’re coming big time. We’re going to rumble.”
