Famous Street Meat Vendor Branching Out With Italian Food Cart
Muhammed Rahman just can’t make up his mind what do with his fourth Kwik Meal cart. Originally dubbed Meal Obama, the cart was forced to change its name to Kwik Meal IV and move from 37th and 7th to 38th and 6th. Business wasn’t great, so when Rahman’s brother parked a cart on 45th and 5th (the spot which used to be occupied by the now gone Kwik Meal 2), Muhammed decided to move Kwik Meal IV back to 45th and 5th (to reclaim his spot from his brother). Business wasn’t great there either, so a month ago Kwik Meal IV moved back to 37th and 6th.
Now comes the craziest news of all! According to a sign that Lunch’er Dennis spotted on the original Kwik Meal cart (on 45th and 6th), the new plan is to open a cart serving “Italian dishes”. I spoke with Rahman and confirmed that he is planning on parking Kwik Meal IV next to the original Kwik Meal cart, and will indeed be converting it into an Italian food cart. The plan is to serve pastas similar to the ones he serves at the pizza place he owns in Harlem, and if all goes well maybe some soups as well. Pasta from a cart? At the very least it should be interesting. The cart will open sometime in the next two weeks.
