Delicious and CHEAP Eats on Wall Street
I just wish Omid works in Midtown. First of all, his food tastes great, and the price is right, especially if you're a student or broke, just waiting for your check. He makes halal (chicken and or lamb), and is located on Wall Street in front of the Deutsche Bank building (across from Cipriani).
Chicken/Lamb sandwich with soda $3.00
Chicken/Lamb over rice & salad with soda $4.00
There are several Halal trucks there, but look for Omid's friendly face.
On the opposite site of the Deutsche Bank building, has a cheap coffee cart. He makes really good flavored iced coffee. I would take his coffee over Dunkin' Donuts anytime (coffee is just the right consistency of lightness and not too sweet).
By the way, some interesting facts about street vending licensing. It costs $6k for 2 years, and those trucks range anywhere from $15k-$25k. There was a juice truck that I found costed $25k. That doesn't even include the cost of fuel, food or labor. Most vendors set up at 5am. WOW! They work hard.
