Wafels & Dinges Brings Cart, Jealousy to South Street Seaport
Those of us working south of Houston St. have often had to deal with our envy of our brethren in Midtown with their wealth of carts and trucks. Well, now if we want a Belgian waffle in the Financial District, we will always know where to find one as the Wafels & Dinges Truck has brought a permanent cart to the South Street Seaport (at Fulton & Front streets), right in front of the Gap store.
The two guys working at the cart told me it’s there permanently and that they will have everything the truck does except for the pulled pork. It’s open daily from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.
According to Thomas DeGeest from the truck, it’s the first of a few carts they’re launching this summer. He also said that the DOH “freaked out at inspection and gave us a hard time – but we passed,” and that he’s using the cart to show memories of his life in Belgium.
It’s definitely a welcome addition to the tourist-trappy Seaport, and it will be interesting to see where else the carts pop up. And if your dream is a khaki shopping spree followed by a Belgian waffle, well, now that can come true.
