Supreme Burger/Rhong-Tiam

rtt_3

The wonderful world of Rhong-Tiam

Highlights: Toppings galore. A lot different from other trucks’ offerings.

Lowlights: Actual beef patty was a bit overcooked. Price.

Burgers are all the rage nowadays. It’s hard to walk down the street without seeing tons of different chic restaurants promising “premium, organic, grass-fed free-range” burgers. In the end, no matter how many brioche buns you try to throw at me, I’m still going to be pretty picky when it comes to this kind of cuisine. I’m glad to say, however, that Premium Burger caught me by surprise and delivered an outstanding product.

Wing’n It

Dazzling design was one of my favorites

Dazzling design was one of my favorites


Highlights: Wide array of sauces, delicious chicken, the tater tots were sublime.

Lowlights: Plain bun, needed a fork

Wing’n It is a new chicken truck that recently hit the road this summer. And New Yorkers will be happy they are here. With a wide selection wings, sauces, and chicken sandwiches, Wing’n It went from a mystery truck to a pleasant surprise in the span of one meal.

BobJo Korean Fusion

BobJo's white wonder-truck

BobJo’s white wonder-truck


Highlights: Ratios. Well balanced sandwich with a lot to offer.

Lowlights: Got real messy at the end.

Here at Rate That Truck, we’re no strangers to the delightful draw of Korean cuisine. What started with a few high school trips to K-town has slowly morphed into an obsessive urge to find the best bulgogi around. And although [presumably] nothing can fill the  Korilla-sized hole that’s left in our hearts after our favorite truck left for hiatus, we still have to try. Enter the BobJo truck. Their interesting take on my favorite food was a welcome surprise and a delicious experience I am not soon to forget.

Taco Bite

The bright blue of Taco Bite stands out from other trucks

Highlights: Al pastor taco, great options, lots of sauces

Lowlights: Waited forever to get food. They couldn’t handle demand.

Taco trucks are all the rage these days on the streets of New York. It seems like taco trucks are a dime a dozen, and if any taco truck wants to stand out they need to do something extremely better than the rest. There were two ways that taco bite did stand out – but not all for the better.

Diso’s Italian Sandwich Society

DiSO’s Deli On-Wheels


Highlights: Meats, Cheeses, Bread. Experience.

Lowlights: Truck Design.

I’m a sucker for a good sandwich. In my opinion, it’s one of the best things you can eat for lunch. There’s nothing like the crunch of a good piece of bread to accompany any assortment of meats, cheeses, vegetables, and sauces you can find in between. It covers all the important cornerstones of lunch in one delicious medium.

I’m also a sucker for a good Italian deli. Watching the workers prepare a home-cooked delicacy while you wait is an tradition that is somewhat lost on our generation. In a time where everything is go-go-go its nice to see people that take their time and effort preparing your food. I’m very pleased to say this was much the case with Diso’s.

Comme Ci Comme Ça

Fuzzy Hair, fuzzy food

Fuzzy Hair, fuzzy food

Highlights: Well-seasoned beef that was cooked to perfection.

Lowlights: Everything else.

Comme Ci Comme Ça has been making a name for itself since the early days of the NYC food truck scene. One of the more talented at social media and mastering the internet, the truck is always easy to locate on my assorted arsenal of food truck finders. The frizzy-haired chef can easily be spotted in a variety of different websites, and has even recently made his way onto the progressive insurance food truck poll. But all this is moot if Chef Samir can’t muster up the food to back up his online identity. Unfortunately, his meal[for the most part] did not leave a lasting impression.

Mac Truck

Racks on Macs

Racks on Macs

Highlights: Great selection of toppings. Lots of food, original dishes.

Lowlights: A bit messy. Little chicken.

For years I had balked at getting Mac & Cheese for lunch. It wouldn’t be enough food, I would think. I can’t be fighting an afternoon deadline on an empty stomach! But recently, I didn’t have that afternoon deadline and Mac Truck was right around the corner. The perfect opportunity to put my mac & cheese biases aside and dive in.

Milk Truck

The two-toned Milk Truck will catch your eye

Highlights: Awesome cheese. The ingredients played nicely off each other. My God, the pickle!

Lowlights: Lack of materials. High prices for sides.

It’s no secret that I don’t consider something a meal without meat. Even BLTs rank ‘meh’ on my satisfying repast Richter scale. I’ve been known to aggressively deride vegetarians within minutes of meeting them. If tofu is your main source of protein, I’m judging you. hard. All this considered, I was happily surprised when I made my first trip to the Milk Truck. Read more ›

Fishing Shrimp

Main View of the Fishing Shrimp Truck

Highlights: Fresh tasting fish and outstanding hot sauce. Solid portions.

Lowlights: A bit too soggy and grease galore.

Fishing Shrimp is one of those trucks that is always close but not close enough to me. I see it constantly on tweat.it, map out my route.. and in the dead of winter ultimately chicken out from an inconvenient walk. With the change of seasons making the appeal of outdoor lunches more and more enticing, I finally decided to pull the trigger.
