“Meals on Wheels” Pops Up on 49th; Fried Chicken Cart Adds Spaghetti & Meatballs
I noticed a couple of new developments in the world of food carts during a little Midtown wandering yesterday. First off, a new halal cart has entered into the Midtown fray on the NW corner of 49th and Park Ave, directly across from our friends at El Rey del Sabor. The cart, Meals on Wheels, apparently set up shop there two weeks ago, and are pricing their chicken and rice platters at $3.99. Added bonus: the interior still has that “new cart” shine.
Further on in my walk, I came across the infamous Fried Chicken Cart (55th+Mad). Not only are they still selling fried chicken (I didn’t check to see if it’s still coming in styrofoam containers), but they’ve added a $6 Spaghetti & Meatballs platter to their menu. Is two a trend? Please let 2011 be the year of the spaghetti & meatballs!
