I’m obsessed with food trucks. New York has amazing sidewalk cuisine. You can get your Thai food, Korean BBQ, flaffel sandwiches and wafels & dinges right on the sidewalk. That’s right, I said you can have dinges on the sidewalk. It’s the most celebrated of the food trucks and it shows up on the Midtown streets rarely. I’m proud to have had THREE sightings. — though I had to go to Astoria for one. Quyn and I follow it on Twitter. She eagerly texted me Thursday morning: “Omg wafels and dinges truck is back on 52.” I immediately informed my 1290 office mates. We compared meeting schedules and Quyn, Maggie, Sergio, Lisa, Matt and I decided we would make a lunch run. We were silly with excitement all morning. So what the dinges is the fuss about dinges, you ask? Feast your eyes on this:
“Dinges” translates to “the crap on top,” according to the wafels & dinges man.
Our walk back from the dinges truck was filled with dinges. “Enjoy your dinges,” I called to Maggie and Sergio, who were going to eat theirs outside. “A couple should have their dinges in private,” Matt chimed in.
Our wafels & dinges were delicious. I even got some sticky dinges on my desk, but didn’t mind one bit. Our next planned food truck run is Korean BBQ. Can’t wait!
