In just under two weeks, on Wednesday, May 7, a fleet of the city’s best food trucks will take over the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Complex on Pier 86 (West 46th Street and Twelfth Avenue), where they’ll dole out stellar tastes of their wares to the crowds. Have you purchased your ticket to Choice Streets yet? General Admission gets a taste from each truck plus unlimited booze; an Early Entry fare gets you access half an hour before the event officially starts — which means less waiting in lines.
To further entice you — or, perhaps, to give you a taste of what you’ll be enjoying, if you’ve already sprung for a ticket — we present this year’s menu of tastes, which features everything from rendang chicken to shrimp rolls to ice cream sandwiches.
