Uncle Gussy’s Greek Sausage (aka Loukaniko) is Another Solid Special
We here at Midtown Lunch are huge fans of Uncle Gussy’s (51st and Park Ave), so I’m a little ashamed to admit that I may just be the last Midtown Luncher to try their truck. My first experience of their food and their great attitude towards their food and customers was when I shot Brian’s Mother’s Day video. We were lucky enough to try their meatball special and after that I was hooked. Ever since then I’ve been stalking their Twitter to find out what specials they have (they usually have specials on Tuesdays and Thursdays). A while back it was their famous pork chop with oven roasted lemon potatoes. I had drooled over Brownie’s post about and I finally got the chance to try it. It was quite delicious and a lot of food while still keeping it within the ML price limit.
But the next week when I saw on ML Twitter Tracker that Uncle Gussy had Greek sausage (aka loukaniko), I knew exactly what was for lunch.
As with any of their lunch specials, the Greek sausages came with a Greek salad and a side of their delicious oven roasted lemon potatoes ($10). The sausage had really great pork flavor and a little bit of smokiness from being on the grill. Cut into bite sized pieces, they were perfect for dunking into their homemade tzatziki and hot sauce.
At this point, I’ve gone to their truck four times since that Mother’s Day video and have enjoyed every meal there. This is what makes NY street food so great and everybody knows it. Everytime I walk by the truck a long line of hungry lunchers would patiently wait for the lunches, rain or shine.
