Eddie’s & Rafiqi’s Team Up to Create Street Meat Pizza
Midtown Lunch is no stranger to the mash up. There was the Famous Halal Guys/100% Vegetarian cart mash up, the chicken tikka sandwich, and the Treats Truck/Miss Softee ice cream sandwich. But this takes things to a completely new level. On Thursday Eddie’s Pizza Truck and Rafiqi’s will team up on 52nd and Park to create… a Street Meat Pizza! We’ll let that sink it for a moment before we let Eddie’s describe exactly what that means.
It will be a 10″ Bar Pie (personal pizza) with its normal sauce and mozzarella cheese then on top of it will be their choice of Rafiqi’s Chicken or Lamb w/Black Beans, Corn, Rice, Shredded Lettuce, and Tomatoes. When it comes out of the oven it willl get a little red and white sauce. When testing the pizza, we made sure to leave two inches on the edges of just pizza so you really get the halal taste in a slice and then eddie’s as well.
We will have a limited number for sale this thursday on 52nd and park. If all goes well, we will make this a weekly Thursday special and potentially add it to other locations. With all the perceived tension between vendors, especially old school and new school, this was a great way to work together with someone else to celebrate street food.
Indeed! And it’s especially nice to see Rafiqi’s working with new vendors, considering their history.
