· Van Leeuwan Artisan Ice Cream
This is the NYC food truck that gets around the most. One night we'll spy it in front of The Standard Hotel, and the next night it'll be in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This is because they've got multiple trucks running and they stay open pretty late for those after-dinner gourmet ice cream cravings. Discover their many locations on Twitter @VLAIC, or find them in the ice cream sections of selected Whole Foods, or even at their own Greenpoint, Brooklyn store: 632 Manhattan Avenue.
· The Cinnamon Snail
This one gets the award for weirded, most possibly unappetizing name. The Cinnamon Snail is a vegan food truck that isn't kidding around. A sample entree: "Jalapeño red quinoa fritters with tomatillo salsa, mashed avocado, cilantro roasted garlic cream, arugula and peppered red wine reduction." Typically this truck likes to park itself near the Hoboken waterfront, but just to be sure, track them on Twitter @VeganLunchTruck.
· Hallo Berlin
This was the truck we wanted most to try. The Hallo Berlin truck began as a street corner vendor, but when the original owner died, it took a break. Now, after it's been resurrected as a roving tent and table, called Hallo Berlin Express. Unfortunately there's no easy way to track down Hallo Berlin Express, but they do have a few permanent locations. Check those out here.
· Joyride Truck
Frozen yogurt and gourmet Stumptown coffee is the name of this food truck's game. Although they were unable to make it to the PARKED festival over the weekend, you can typically find them churning out the froyo at either East 52nd Street and Lexington Avenue or West 67th Street and Broadway. For updates on their location, follow them on Twitter @joyridetruck.
· Hermelinda Mexicana/ Calexico
Although it's rumored that this Mexican food truck serves goodies like Tostadas and Agua De Sandia (watermelon juice), we can't find any info on it anywhere. So instead, we focus on the awesome Calexico truck, which wants to participate in the next season of The Food Channel's The Great Food Truck Race. You can vote for them here and find out where and what they're serving up on Twitter @CalexicoCart.
Although they weren't at the PARKED food fest, you also shouldn't miss out on these NYC-area food trucks: Heartschallenger, Dessert Truck, The Krave (Korean BBQ in Jersey City & a personal favorite), and Big Gay Ice Cream Truck.
