Crisp on Wheels Truck Exceeds My Expectations

When I first heard that the mini-chain restaurant Crisp was launching a falafel truck, I was dismayed and thoroughly unexcited. First off, I think of food trucks and carts as a great way to start a business when you don’t have the funds and capital to open a restaurant.

And secondly, why would I want to eat this generic falafel when I have options like Taim and Kwik Meal on the streets?

In all fairness, I’ve only walked by Crisp and have never actually been inside, partly because I assumed it wasn’t much more innovative or delicious as the likes of Europa Cafe or PAX. Then I discovered Zach’s review from a while back and I truly learned what happens when you assume. It’s not the first time I’ve made an ass of myself.

Crisp on Wheels is Launching Thursday

Last month we reported that Crisp, the unique falafel place with 3 locations in New York City, would be launching a food truck. It took a little longer than they expected (it always does) but we’re hearing that they are finally ready to go and the truck will soft launch on Thursday in the Flatiron District (on 26th and Park) serving up falafel and hummus bowls.
