James Boo 2 comments

Parked on a nondescript street in the South Bronx, the trailer comes alive on Fridays, serving Puerto Rican dishes through the weekend and closing on Sunday evening. The owner and cook, known to the neighborhood as "Piraña," is immensely warm-hearted.

James Boo 10 comments

When we, as diners, talk about how delicious a plate of street food can be, it's easy to lose sight of just how tenuous the career of a street vendor—especially an immigrant street vendor—is.

Video: David's Brisket House, the Jewish Deli Run by Muslims in Brooklyn

James Boo 10 comments

Several sandwiches at David's Brisket House have made the pages of Serious Eats, but there's a lot more to this place than brisket three ways. The deli, originally owned by Jewish immigrants from Yemen and Russia, was passed down to a Muslim partner (also from Yemen) during the 1980s.
