2016 Best Food Truck


Call it meal-on-a-bun fatigue: Occasionally we grow weary of gyros, grilled cheeses, and Maggi-splattered bánh mì—no matter how good they are. Hence our obsession with this truck’s Iraqi and Middle Eastern street food, which features feta-stuffed phyllo, fattoush salads stippled with sumac and fresh herbs, and Persian specialties like khoresht-e bademjan brimming with hunks of beef and roasted eggplant.

Correction, July 1, 9 a.m.: A previous version of this post stated that Burke Weston is the chef of Sheherazad food truck and that the truck serves no sandwiches. In fact, Weston is no longer the chef, and the truck serves wraps. We regret the error.
