Final Vendy Award Nominees Announced!
The Vendy Awards are almost upon us and yesterday the final nominees were announced. Competing for the Vendy Cup, are five very different vendors. An old time Vendy and ML favorite who has never won the big award is Cinnamon Snail, along with last year’s Rookie of the Year Nuchas; a previous regular in Midtown who now mostly vends in Soho and Brooklyn, Desi Food Truck; El Rey del Taco a family run business out in Astoria; and the legendary Lechonera La Pirana, a machete yielding meat man who specializes in Puerto Rican lechon. The competition just got real. Tickets are still available for the September 13 event and can be purchased here or you can enter to be a Citizen judge by sharing your food photos.
