i hope this isn't a dumb question ... hubby and i are really looking forward to our NY trip next weekend. we are planning to hit the legendary food carts. our food cart options in toronto are limited to hot dogs only! so, carts with falafel, dumplings, fruit salad, desserts, etc. are a real novelty! anyway, seeing as how it's winter, where exactly do you eat your food cart purchases? i can see eating hot dogs and things like dumplings on the run ... but a chicken/rice plate?? seems a bit messy.
do you take your food back to your offices/apartments and chowdown? and if that's the case, are there any good carts near 51st and lexington? we're staying at the doubletree metropolitan. so far, i've located two food carts nearby ... vietnamese food cart at 52nd/lex and the mexican cart at 52nd/3rd.
i'd really like to go to the chicken/rice cart at 53rd/6th or the kwik meal cart but realistically, i can' t see how my food won't get stone cold by the time i walk back to the hotel.
