45 Street is Not Truck Alley Every Day

Rickshaw Dumplings and Treats Truck...Sharing the Street

As you knew from our post on Tuesday, Wednesday was a big day on 45th btw. 6+7th. The newly launched Rickshaw Dumpling Truck and the Treats Truck were parked next to each other in what Eater dubbed “Food Truck Row.”  There was even a halal cart and ice cream truck thrown in for good measure.  But don’t get too excited for a repeat.  While The Treats Truck is planning on being back in the spot today from 12:30 to 2:30 (they alternate with the Waffles and Dinges Truck), the Rickshaw Dumpling Truck is parking Downtown (on Pearl St. right next to the plaza for all of our Downtown Lunch readers.)

No word on whether they will try parking together again next Wednesday, but it isn’t completely smooth sailing.  The same ice cream truck guy that hassled Kim in the Treats Truck when she first started parking on the block, is now hassling Kenny in the Dumpling Truck.  Hopefully with the weather getting cold, the ice cream trucks will be leaving soon anyway…


  • That ice cream truck needs to step up his game. I want to be there when the Van Leeuwen truck shows up; he’s going to lose it!

  • I think we need someone to go slash mr.ice cream man’s tires as a message to stop messing with our eats and sweets damnit.

  • Just thought Id add that I went to the location that Wafels and Dinges Truck said it’d be today… 51st between park and lex… and it wasnt there… :-(

  • Er…..hmmmm….uhhh…..nevermind.

  • hee hee

  • I think I need to go up there and have a few words with Mr. Softee…..he seems like he needs to be put in his place. Perhaps my Asp Baton on his head will convince him to keep quiet….
