Soft-scrambled, perfectly poached, or fried, I can't resist a great egg dish.

When Ed reviewed the cheery Eggs Travaganza cart on 52nd Street and Park back in 2009, it was still only out for breakfast; now, they're on the street for lunch, too. We'd point you to the Grilled Cheese with Chorizo and Bacon ($5), on multi-grain bread that's crazy-buttery.
The first things I noticed were the whimsical graphics on the cart's signage, and the spelling mistakes on those graphics touting the homemade pancakes. Who makes made-from-scratch pancakes at a food cart? Eggs Travaganza on 52nd Street and Park Avenue does, and the chorizo, egg, and American cheese sandwich is even better.
