New “Mexican” Cart Serving Burritos on Park Ave.
After settling on my “chicken scampi” lunch the other day from the Magdy’s Cheesesteak cart (on Park and 46th), I stumbled across this random sign on what seemed like an otherwise standard street meat cart. I was super curious, but already full- and vowed to return in my obligatory roll as Midtown guinea pig. Luckily Lunch’er “Alan” beat me to the punch, and sent along this mini-review:
This Cart on 53rd & Park has been here for a month or two has recently added burritos to their menu. The cart appears to be run by a Mexican couple. For $3 the decent sized burrito included chicken or ground beef, rice, tomato, onions, cheese, hot sauce and sour cream. It was a pretty good burrito considering the options in the immidiate area. Really a great price for what it is, a nice change from your typical halal cart.
The photo of his burrito is after the jump…
Ok, so it’s not the greatest photo in the universe… but you get the idea. This probably is not going to replace the El Rey del Sabor cart (on 60th & 3rd Ave.) anytime soon, but if you work in the area and don’t have to time to trek up to 60th Street this could be a new, interesting option. I will definitely be hitting it up soon. If there are any other early adopters out there, feel free to comment below.
