Honk if You Want Dessert from a Truck

Photo by Richard J. Velasco

My coworker sent me a link to Ed Levine's post today about a dessert truck at the corner of 8th Street and University Place in NYC. A dessert truck. Did you hear that? A DESSERT TRUCK!

For $5, take your pick of:
  • Homemade s'mores with homemade vanilla marshmallow and Valrhona dark chocolate
  • Homemade deep-fried brioche, dusted with cinnamon and sugar, and filled with vanilla pastry cream
  • Chocolate Bread Pudding
  • Molten Chocolate Cake
  • Slow-Baked Apples and Cinnamon
  • Vanilla Creme Brulee
  • And more (download the pdf of their menu from the Dessert Truck website)
This is not your run of the mill food truck, like the taco cart outside the public hospital. Pastry Chef Jerome Chang, formerly of Le Cirque, is in the driver seat.

I am so jealous! Maybe if we demand it on Eventful, it will make a road trip to Los Angeles...

New Yorkers out there, have you been?

Joyce - Maybe you should start one? It would be in SF or LA, right? That's much closer to me than NY!

City Elf - If I start one of these, I will park it in MY neighborhood. You'll just have to come visit often. :-P

timorona - That might be my first choice too! Or not, hmmm. So many yummy options!
