Is your normal lunch routine boring and uninspired? Let us help you spice it up! This week, we and our friends at Midtown Lunch will be celebrating foods that Bring the Heat as part of our month-long series of lunch rush food cart tours in Midtown and the Financial District. Break out of your lunch routine and join us for a one-hour three-course strolling lunch and we’ll have you back at your desk for your afternoon meetings!
Test your tastebuds while clearing your sinuses with an assortment of spicy dishes from all over the world. Spicy food is widely reported to be good for you, in fact, capsaicin–the ingredient in chili peppers that causes that burning sensation we all know — is also reported to kill certain kinds of cancer cells and decrease cholesterol levels. And spicy foods boost the production of feel-good hormones, so head you can head back to work in a better mood!
The tours will be led by Brian Hoffman, veteran food blogger and engaging tour guide, who truly knows and loves street food, the vendor community, and the industry as a whole.
Sneak Previews of featured vendors for this week!
On Tuesday, September 2nd, we will feature spicy vendors along Park Avenue, visiting Eggstravaganza, on the street since 2008 and the award-winning creator of the Mexican Wrap.
On Wednesday, September 3rd, we’ll be exploring the best hot dishes along Sixth Avenue, including Bapcha, who’s name is derived from the Korean word for rice cart, and their flavorful Korean dishes.
On Thursday, September 4th, we’ll try the hot and spicy stylings of the Financial District, including Veronica’s Kitchen, famous for their spicy Trinidadian Jerk Chicken.
So, what are you waiting for? If you work in Midtown or the Financial District, let’s do this!
