New Mediterranean Grill Truck Pulls Up to 39th
We got a tip last week from Luncher Hengde about a brand new truck on 39th Street and Sixth Avenue and I just so happened to walk by it on Friday. I did a double take since the bright blue truck was a bit reminiscent of the Souvlaki GR truck (and I know they never come to Midtown). I already had my lunch in my hand so I was kicking myself I didn’t come this way earlier.
This new truck is generically named Mediterranean Grill and it looks as though the food is Turkish Halal. The guy running the truck was very friendly and told me they’ve been at this spot for the last two weeks. Once he saw me taking photos, he offered up that all the food is fresh, never frozen. They didn’t have any paper menus printed yet and I can’t seem to find a website or Twitter account, but I did get a shot of the display menu.
Food looks pretty standard with kebabs, gyros, and koftas. However, the addition of baklava and hummus look promising. And does anybody have any idea what a Shepherd Garden is? I’m hoping to try the food sometime this week. Anybody checked it out yet? Leave early reports in the comments.
