That wasn’t necessarily true, but as that was the only dish I’d tried it was time for a return visit.

Have Any Of You Tried The Ambizza Cafe Truck?

I’ve walked by the Ambizza Cafe Truck that’s been parked at Old Slip & Water, but haven’t had the chance to try it.

Has anyone tried food from this truck? I might have to check it out, simply because I don’t want to miss out on the best kofta this city has to offer.
