February 11, 2013

1.  Wafels & Dinges

Located in Manhattan, NY, Wafels & Dignes is a Belgium dessert food truck that is the number one ZAGAT rated food truck. The truck’s motto is “All the world is a wafel and all of us are merely dinges.” It serves de Liege Wafels (dough-based waffles) with vanilla flavoring that the truck describes as “soft,” “chewy” and “irresistible.” The “dinges” are the toppings for the waffle; these toppings include “sky-high combinations of fruit and whipped cream, with whimsical chocolate-covered smiles.” Choices include strawberries, bananas, whipped cream, Belgium chocolate fudge, maple syrup, walnuts, dulce de leche and the truck’s signature spekuloos spread. If that’s not enough, this food truck also offers homemade ice cream to put on your waffle. Make sure to try its two signature flavors – Spekuloos and Belgium Madness (with Hoegaarden white beer and honey) – the next time you encounter this spectacular mobile food stand.

2.  Sweetery NYC

The Sweetery truck (a.k.a. CHOPPER) is described as a mobile bakery. It has large windows that allow customers to see right into the kitchen where the “goodies” are baked fresh daily. At this European-inspired mobile eatery, you can create your own croissants – filled with your choice of luscious pastry creams including mocha, praline, vanilla and chocolate, all natural preserves, honey, and nut butters. Other delectable treats that are served at this mobile food stand are muffins, scones, quiches, savory croissants, cookies and brownies. But don’t worry – you won’t be falling asleep after your indulgence if you pair it with one of the outstanding espressos or cappuccinos offered by this stand.

3.  Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream

Van Leeuwen’s ice cream flavors are created using only fresh, hormone and antibiotic free milk and cream from local farms, cane sugar and egg yolks. The flavors include vanilla, chocolate, pistachio, hazelnut, ginger, espresso, currants and cream, strawberry, mint chip, Ceylon cinnamon, Gianduja, Earl Grey Tea, and palm sugar. The ice cream food truck also rotates flavors such as Sticky Black Rice, Salted Caramel with Buffalo Trace Bourbon, and Ricotta with Candied Lemon. It’s impossible to feel anything besides jovial when eating this ice cream!
