Video Break: Vendy Award Nominee The Shuka Truck

The Vendy Awards get closer every week. Do you have your tickets to the big event on September 12? It will definitely sell out (as it always does), but you can still purchase them by clicking here. It’s an amazing afternoon with food from over 25 different vendors.

We’ve been showcasing videos on all the Rookie of the Year nominees. Regardless of who wins, it will be a coup for Midtown since all five nominees find their way to this neighborhood. The other videos already posted include Taiwanese buns from Kaya NYC, overstuffed tacos from Coney Shack, and Greek street food from Lil Zeus Lunch Box.

The next nominee is The Shuka Truck, who serves large sandwiches and platters of shakshuka. This Israeli dish is basically eggs poached in tomato sauce and spices. Shuka Truck also offers varieties like a vegetable-forward green and an earthy creamy white shakshuka. They usually park in Midtown three times a week, but check their Twitter feed for exact locations.

Click the link below to check out the video and stay tuned for one more video next week on the final Rookie of the Year nominee as we count down to the 11th annual Vendy Awards.

Shuka Truck Debuts As NYC’s First Mobile Shakshuka Source

Have you thought there was a hole in the street food scene of New York, perhaps one best filled with a truck devoted to a vegetarian egg dish? If you answered “Yes!” then I have good news for you: The Shuka Truck is coming Monday, and it’s starting in Midtown. ┬áThe truck is devoted to shakshuka, aka, eggs poached in tomato, onion and spices, which along with other fixings are stuffed in a pita or at least sopped up with it. It’s falafel’s less famous sister in the vegetarian sandwich family.

Three friends from Israel decided to launch the truck, and we’re told that it will be parked at 32nd & Park. As always, you might want to check their location on Twitter before heading out.
