Big Gay Ice Cream Truck
Its hard to miss this rainbow-accented, cha-cha music-blaring ice cream truck parked in the West Villagetoppings include gourmet items like sea salt, bacon, cayenne pepper, and TRIX cereal, since, according to their website, its queer, colorful, and youngster-friendly, like us!. The BGICT plans to make appearances near clubs in the East Village and Chelsea at night. To find out the trucks location, visit biggayicecreamtruck.com
This mysterious unmarked van isnt being operated by someone scary from Americas Most Wanted. Its just a low-key food truck serving up some tasty Taiwanese eats, like a filling fried pork chop over rice with secret pork sauce ($6) , Taiwanese style fried tianbula (fish cake) ($6), and a variety of steamed dumplings ($3 for 4). The truck can be found on 45th St between Sixth and Seventh Aves most Mondays, but you can check the trucks other locations at https://sites.google.com/a/nyccravings.com/cravings/
Strawberry shortcake, old fashioned banana pudding, and psychedelic tie dye are among the colorful, creative cupcakes on offer at the Cupcake Stop, NYCs first mobile cupcake shop.

Do you want to find a filling lunch for under $5? Moshes Falafel Trucks got you covered with its 3-falafel pita stuffed with lettuce, tomato, tahini, hot sauce, and a spicy pickle on top for just $4.75. While its not quite new, it does have a new location and new menu items. This truck has been parked near Union Square for the past 6 months, but now resides at 57th and Broadway. Shoestring French fries ($3.50) are the latest addition.
