Vendy Awards Fraud!?! Did ‘Judge’ Daisy Martinez Even Try the Biryani Cart?
Chef Daisy… does any of this look familiar?
Chef Daisy Martinez gives New York Magazine’s Grub Street a list of all the food she’s eaten this week, and her list of Vendy Awards grub from last Saturday (where she was one of the judges who awarded the cup to the Calexico boys) has one glaring omission:
“I walked over to the Vendys and I had what everybody there had: those delicious little fresh tacos that those boys from Calexico were making, pupusas from Soler, and braised chicken, falafel, and I had a lamb wrap that was incredible. And I had some delicious organic vanilla ice cream and a chocolate bread pudding”
No mention of the biryani, chicken tikka masala, or the chicken kati rolls served by the Biryani Cart! I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt and say she must have just forgotten to include it in the list she submitted to Grub Street. But truthfully, it would make much more sense that she didn’t even try it… because if she had, the Biryani Cart (which won the Peoples Choice Vote) would have definitely won the cup!
