Last week, I was making my way to Zeytinz for lunch when I spotted a new (at least to my knowledge) food truck parked along 40th, right across from Bryant Park. It was the Potato House truck, and this was the first time I had heard about Potato House at all, so I stopped and looked over the menu. They had the usual toppings, like chili, sour cream and broccoli, but they also had toppings like crab, seaweed and beets. Not sure what to think about this new cart, I continued on my way to Zeytinz and began searching the interwebs for any additional information I could find. There wasn’t much (aside from this early spotting back in Sept when they were just a cart), so with my Zeytinz sandwich in hand, I made my way to Potato House to see what it was all about.

Yesterday, we noticed a new cart, Potato House, parking on the NW corner of 50th Street and 6th Avenue. According to the menu, the cart serves stuffed baked potatoes with “salads.” I say this with some hesitancy because I actually think they mean toppings instead of salads, but regardless, for $7 you get to pick two “salads” with your baked potato from a list including tuna, crab, eggplant, seaweed, carrot, cabbage, mushroom, olives, sour cream, salmon, zucchini, beet, and pickles. They also offer a bunch of sauces to choose from.
Potato House’s website currently doesn’t link to anything, and likewise, Potato House is pretty elusive on FB or Twitter (thought the icons do appear on the cart itself). Best bet for now is to try your luck on 50th Street and 6th Avenue!
