Vendy Award Nominees in Our Neighborhood!

Written by NY Press on . Posted in Arts Our Town Downtown, Blog, Eat & Drink.

Two trucks in our area have been nominated for ! Here’s all you need to know about them:


Kostas, Pavlos, and Abby have been selling souvlaki from their truck, and now their own restaurant for only a year, but this is already their second Vendy Awards appearance! Their specialties include pork pita souvlaki with tyro kefteri (spicy feta and dill sauce) and Greek fries. They can be found Monday-Friday at Old Slip & Front Streets from 11:30 – 3:00. You can follow them on twitter @souvlakitruck, or check out their website





Owner Sam Ahmen has been selling falafel from his truck for 14 years! He experimented with his falafel recipe until he found one that he believes is unmatched. He makes everything from scratch from high quality ingredients. His falafel pitas are stuffed with everything you could ever want: hummus, caramelized onions, baba ghanoush, eggplant, and tomatoes. Sam is a bit old-school and has neither twitter nor a website, but you can count on finding him in Zucotti Park, on Cedar St and Broadway.
