Only You Can Save Kwik Meal’s New Cart
We’re hearing that Muhammad Rahman, the owner of the Kwik Meal carts, is very distraught over some of the complaints that were posted in the comments of this site regarding the chewiness of the lamb at his new Quick Delight cart on 45th and 3rd Ave. (It also seems to be why there was some Quick Delight shilling going on last week.) Despite the fact that it was just one or two non-believers, and everybody else seems to love Kiwk Meal’s lamb (the only lamb in Midtown that is actual lamb, and not gyro meat), he seems convinced this is the reason that business at the new cart has been slow. In fact he is so distraught over it, we hear he has fired his lamb supplier for what he claims was a bad batch of lamb.
Muhammed himself actually went so far as to post this in the comments:
“I am Muhammed Rahman, I own three carts. Quick Delight on 3rd avenue 45th street Kwik Gourmet on 47 and Park avenue and Kwik meal on 6th avenue and 45th street. If anyone was not satisfied with our service, please call me at (646) 729 8702 .”
It’s not all fun and games though. He told a customer that he may move the cart if business doesn’t pick up.
In the comments from a lunch’er:
“Had the lamb and rice today. I’m now a big fan of the green sauce. I also prefer the chunks of lamb over the gyro. Muhammad was there telling me about the “chewy lamb” problem and the supplier change and how [he thinks] business is down because of that. He said he might not be able to keep the cart in that location if business does not pick up. I’d like to see him survive because its pretty convenient for us East Siders. For what it’s worth, I thought the lamb was fine.”
I don’t know whether to urge east siders to patronize this cart, or just try to console Muhammed by explaining that business is down everywhere when it’s 5 degrees out, the economy is terrible, and it takes time for word to get out about a new cart. Maybe the nice weather we’ve been having will help…
