New Cart Alert: Happy Well Being House
To me there is nothing more exciting than the arrival of a brand new cart… especially when it’s as weird as this one! Meet the “Happy Well Being House” cart, which popped up on 50th street btw. 6+7th for the first time yesterday. Started by a Korean lady, and another girl (who I’m guessing is her daughter), the cart is serving up fried fish and grilled chicken, over rice or home fries for $6. They used to own an “American food” restaurant in Long Island. I don’t know what is “well being” about fried fish and hash browns but this cart is in the early lead for strangest cart of 2009.
I was already on my way to a different lunch destination, but thankfully they offered me a taste!
The chicken was pretty good for a cart (just plain white meat chicken with a really good char) but the fish was surprisingly even better. Crunchy on the outside, and not fishy tasting at all. I had it topped with teriyaki sauce (standard/sweet) and hot sauce (standard vinegary hot sauce, not that spicy) but you can also get it with white sauce or bbq sauce. I didn’t get to try the rice or the potatoes.
As fun as it is to see new carts, I can’t imagine this one will last too long… it’s probably a little too strange for the standard person in Midtown, and the menu is really limited (it’s literally just two things). But if you like fried fish (or home fries for lunch) and work in the area, I’d give it a try before it disappears! It does say breakfast on the cart also… I wonder if they serve eggs and homefries in the morning. That would be awesome! Early adopters, let us know what you think the comments…
