Tacos, quesadillas, and more food

Anyone wandering the streets of New York City is bound to run into at least a dozen food trucks and carts lining the streets along their way. The city has thousands of food-serving motorized vehicles that congregate at parks, major streets, and anywhere else they can find a spot to sell their goods. In honor of National Food Truck Day 2023 on June 30th, we have compiled a list of 10 unique NYC trucks from across the five boroughs that are not to be missed this foodie holiday!

With two different locations in the city (one at 161 East 68th Street in the Upper East Side and the other at 27-01 Queens Plaza North in Queens), Terry and Yaki Food Cart offers Asian-style cooking made with halal ingredients. This modern kitchen on wheels has something for everyone to try. In addition to their signature teriyaki bowls, they also serve fried chicken bao buns and vegan and vegetarian dishes like tofu bowls and spicy Chinese eggplant. While their Manhattan location is open from 11 AM to 7 PM Monday through Friday, their Queens location is open on weekends as well, and serves food until 9:30 PM, giving foodies even more time to enjoy their dishes this National Food Truck Day.
