Best of luck to King Souvlaki and King of Falafel and Shawarma at the 2019 Vendy Awards!
By Loulou Chryssides
Everyone who truly loves food knows that food trucks are one of the best ways to find some of the best food in New York City. Fortunately for Astorians, we are quite lucky as two of the neighborhood’s very own food trucks are up for the All-Star Vendy Cup at this year’s Vendy Awards! Astoria’s finalists? None other than King Souvlaki and King of Falafel and Shawarma!
So, what are the Vendy Awards for our friends who might not know? Basically, the Vendy Awards aim to highlight the best food trucks around the entire city. The annual celebration was started by the Street Vendor Project to highlight the contributions made by food trucks to the city’s overall food scene.
Unfortunately, this year is the final year for the Vendy Awards. However, for those interested in attending and tasting amazing food from around the city, you may still purchase last-minute tickets here. To learn more about the Vendy Awards and this year’s finalists, visit their website here.
Best of luck, and congratulations, to Astoria’s King Souvlaki and King of Falafel and Shawarma!
