The Jerk Pan Truck Better Last Long Enough For Me To Eat Their Entire Menu
This has been a tough few months for anybody who likes eating from food trucks, but the most recent crackdown in Midtown East has hit me particularly hard because I just discovered the Jerk Pan Truck! And it pains me to think that they might be forced to leave their current spot (48th & Park).
At Jerk Pan you get your choice of a number of different size portions. The last time I had Caribbean food from a truck, at Sunrise Grill back in May, I got the small and it turned out to be pretty damn small. So at Jerk Pan I went with the large- which was listed as $10.50 on the menu, but they ended up only charging me $8. (Bonus!)
After reading what Zach wrote about Jerk Pan I decided to go with the stewed brown chicken, figuring it would be good to try the least bold flavored item first and work my way up. For $8, it turned out to be totally awesome. The sauce was crazy good and there was plenty of it to cover most of the rice. The pieces of chicken were not only flavorful but were stewed until all of the meat was just falling off the bone (which you do have to watch out for.)
With all the madness going on, I hope I’ll be able to try the rest of the menu. They better be there today!
