Foodies, Truckies, and Avid Travelers; have you seen this list (click on the Title to be directed to the link)? I came across it on Eater.com and had to share it with you guys. It’s a list compiled by the Smithsonian Magazine of the 20 Best Food Trucks in America. I’m not too sure about Schnitzel and Things, but at least the Smithsonian hit it on the head by choosing the Dessert Truck. If you don’t know about the Dessert Truck, Get to know it! It will change your whole perspective on sh*t! Lol. No, but seriously it is one of the best Food trucks in NYC and I thank my dear friend every time we see each other for taking me there to experience their Goat Cheese Cheesecake! Sounds crazy right? But I think the real craziness is that we are still using cream cheese to make our cheese cake?! Lol. Let me know if you think this list is “spot on” or “way off.” Tweet us @ViseNyc and let us know which Food Truck should have made the list. Peace and Luv my people!

Buen Provecho. 

So if you haven’t heard by now, it’s going to snow this weekend. Some of you may be thrilled but if you’re anything like me, you are already putting the traction cleats on your boots and hoping that the Meteorologist, who is usually wrong, will live up to his terrible reputation again. Lol. If in the event he is right and we are hit with a snow storm, I found the perfect recipes to make up for the crappy weekend weather. These recipes are from Chef Ivy Stark, Executive Chef at the famous Dos Caminos, from her new cookbook entitled:  Dos Caminos’ Mexican Street Food.  These recipes look super easy to make and absolutely delicious. Who said nothing good came from cabin fever? Lol. Since I very much dislike snow, it looks like I’ll be cooking a Dos Caminos Brunch at the ViseNyc Office this weekend. Who is down to trek it to Harlem? Let me know if your down and bring some of the ingredients listed in the recipes; its rude to show up empty handed. Lol. Click here for the recipes.

Buen Provecho.      

IF THIS DOESNT GET YOU IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT, YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK YOUR PULSE.

So lately I haven’t been feeling the Holiday Spirit. Maybe it’s my work schedule, maybe it’s the erratic weather patterns, or maybe it’s the fact that I had to take out another credit card to pay for all these damn gifts; thank you extended family. Anyways, i’m cruising through Chelsea looking to score some wine for a Holiday Party and I came across this really beautiful bakery called Lulu’s on 15th and 8th. As any of my friends would tell you, i dont really have a sweet tooth. I have more of a MEAT TOOTH! I would rather indulge in a steak over a caramel flan or a medium rare burger over an artisan made doughnut any day! But there was something about this bakery that caught my attention. They were serving Homemade Eggnog Twinkies! As a kid, I used to love Twinkies! Who didn’t? But the fact that they were eggnog flavored kind of repulsed me. I hate eggnog and its thicker, more viscous, Latin cousin, Rompope! I’m sure there is an accent somewhere in there but im too caught up in the Holiday Spirit to figure out which alt key code would provide that accent for me. Anyways, I was so repulsed that I had to walk in and TRY IT!!!

Say what you want, @FoodDudeNyc is an adventurous eater! My Andrew Zimmern ways may have lead to many nights beside my toilet but this culinary risk would not be one of them. This Eggnog Twinkie was, for lack of better words and in the spirit of all things Chelsea, “FABULOUS!” It was soft, moist, and not incredibly sweet like most eggnogs and best of all, you could taste both the cinnamon and nutmeg! They weren’t overpowered like they usually are in its liquid form. Between you and I, I devoured the whole damn thing elementary school style; two bites (two and a half, maybe)! I liked it so much I bought a few to take back to the office but again, between us, only two survived the eight block journey to my cozy little office. Oh well, I only really like two people in that office anyways, Merry Christmas Mother F*ckers! I give to thee the gift of Deliciousness!  

This Eggnogg Twinkie has made me a believer! It definitely got me into the Christmas Spirit!  So much, in fact, that I may even consider breaking out my plastic Christmas Tree from storage! Watch out now! Trust me, run to Lulu’s on 15th and 8th before they’re gone! Stockpile them as if the apocalypse were tomorrow! Twinkies last forever anyways! You won’t be disappointed!

Buen Provecho!
