Celebrating our Awesome Food Trucks Right in LIC
Sure I love to indulge in some of New York's mobile treats, and we have a whole food truck lot right outside of my building at work, but why should it be only for Manhattanites? For those of you who love the food truck scene (and Astoria/LIC of course) will know that since last year, we've set up a food truck lot on Crescent Street, near 44th Road. Just like a lot of the lots in the city, the Long Island City Food Truck Lot operates in a similar fashion, where they get a steady rotation of the NYC's most famous gourmet food trucks. Taking place each Thursday and Friday from 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. you can catch anything there, from Asian Fusion, Mexican, good ol' American comfort food and of course desserts.
I wanted to shout-out one dessert truck in particular that's a favorite of mine that'll be at the lot tomorrow. The one, the only Treats Truck will be present in full-on sweet glory serving up their signature treats such their sandwich cookies, brownies and crispy squares. My personal favorites are their oatmeal jammy cookies, stuffed with raspberry jam, as well as their crunchy and slightly crumbly peanut butter sandwich cookies.
Don't forget to bring a bottle of water (or milk) with you to wash down all that goodness.
The Treats Truck will be at the lot tomorrow from 11:00 a.m. - 3 p.m.
