Snap Food Truck Coming Soon… Hopefully
Anybody who wishes you could get a good Chicago-style hot dog in the city needs to pay attention to this one. A new food truck concept called Snap Food is hoping to bring specialty hot dogs, flame grilled burgers, Belgian style fries, and other ML-worthy dishes like panko crusted avocado fries to the streets of New York. Not only does this food sound mighty tasty, but it will also be good for the environment. The plan is to re-use the oil from the fryer to fuel the truck. Food Republic posted an interview with owners Zeph and Liz Courtney yesterday, and they might look familiar from their handful of pop appearances around town (at places like the Hester Street Fair and Artists & Fleas). The musician couple are raising money for the venture on Kickstarter. Liz told me they initially plan on sticking to the food truck lots in Battery Park and Long Island City, but definitely have Midtown on their radar. I think a little bribe couldn’t hurt – even from cheap bastards like us, so check out their Kickstarter page (every $1 helps) and keep your eyes peeled for them in the future.
