Kwik Meal Names New Cart After (Irish?) President Obama
Kwik Meal, the famous two time Vendy Award nominee known for their lamb and white sauce, has opened a new cart on 37th Street &
7th Ave. 6th Ave., and appears to have named it after our current President. I suppose they could argue the apostrophe was in honor of St. Patrick’s Day… but the sign is permanent, so… uh… I don’t know. Anyway, the cart is Kwik Meal’s fourth and will serve their trademark lamb, plus chicken, falafel, and chicken shawarma. (I guess the third cart he opened at the beginning of the year is finally doing well.)
I asked the owner (and former cook at the Russian Tea Room) Muhammed Rahman why he named the new cart after President Obama, and his response is after the jump.
“I just wanted to come up with something new… a new name, and I feel like it would be an attraction. He is the President of America. Also, he is a good person and I really like him, but don’t know how to say it. I want to say nice things, but don’t know the words.”
Fox News is only 10 blocks away from the new cart… let’s see how long it takes them to cover the “Muslim Street Vendors Support Obama” story. Kwik Meal’s other three carts are on 45th & 6th, 47th & Park, and 45th & 3rd.
