Fodor's Review

These two food carts at 53rd Street and 6th Avenue are meccas for what New Yorkers call "street meat." At lunch, head to the eastern cart—the "official" western cart opens for dinner—and order a lamb gyro or a lamb platter served with basmati rice, lettuce, the famous secret-recipe white sauce, and incendiary hot sauce.
