Best New Food Truck: Readers’ Poll 2012

It’s time for the 2012 Midtown Lunch Readers’ Poll. Your nominations are in, and between now and the end of the year we’ll be asking all of you to vote for the best Midtown Lunches in a whole range of categories. You can only vote once per category (so choose wisely), and official results will be posted after the new year.

This year it seemed like there was a new gourmet food truck appearing every week in the city. Back in the early days of NYC food trucks (read: 2007), you could almost guarantee whatever you ordered from a food truck would be mighty tasty. Today many food trucks are appearing serving gimmicky food (let’s do Ethiopian tacos!!!) and hoping to earn a quick buck. It’s the ones that focus on the food that make us excited about what’s still to come from four wheels. The Vendy folks thought that Phil’s Steaks was the best new truck this year, since they awarded the Rookie of the Year to the philly cheesesteak mobile. Morris Truck serves the only grilled cheese that is worth the price (they offer a duck fat add-on!!) with their seasonal and local ingredients. Nuchas has solid empanadas in the largest truck I’ve seen yet on the street, while Okadaman has really unique and delicious Japanese bar food. And Our Heros, while currently off the street fixing internal problems, had the biggest bang for your buck with classic Italian sandwiches. But only one can be the best.  Here are this year’s nominees for Best New Food Truck in Midtown…

Vote for your favorite, after the jump…
