Pimp Your Lunch Truck

Waiting for my turn to order at the Oriental Food Truck at the NE corner of 36th and Market, I started listening into the conversations around me. Most were one-sided, the second person unheard on the other end of a cell phone. There was one worth slyly dropping in on though, a cluster of three, obviously work friends, standing two people behind me, talking about the spiffy new truck that had replaced the old one that used to be there. The truck disappeared this summer for about two months (we all missed them terribly), and when it returned, it was clean and shiny and mostly-new.

Woman 1: “Is it the old truck remodeled, or is it a brand new truck?”

Woman 2: “It looks wider than the old one.”

Guy: “It looks like they went on Pimp Your Lunch Truck!”

It got me thinking about the variety of lunch trucks and carts around the city. Lots of them are rusted, defaced and disgusting. I’m inviting all of you to nominate the most in-need to our fictional reality show, “Pimp Your Lunch Truck.” We have no budget, and no ability to do any pimping, but if we were actually awarding prizes, what truck or cart would you nominate? Let us know in the comments!

    Avoid all chinese food from trucks. That’s what I say.
