Say it Right and Get a (Free) Bite in NYC with the Living Language Food Truck

Attention New York Fodorites: Start brushing up on your high school foreign language knowledge! To celebrate the release of their brand new Platinum products, Living Language will be loading up a food truck with culinary delights and serving free treats. Want to get your grub on? The only thing standing between you and the delicacy of your choice is your ability to ask for it in the native tongue.


The truck will be parked at Union Square West between 16th & 17th on Wednesday August 10 from 11 am—4 pm and in front of 1745 Broadway on Thursday August 11 from noon—5pm. Living Language will be serving up Spanish, French, Italian and German culinary treats in honor of their four Platinum launch languages. The menu includes:

  • Agua fresca de sandía y menta, Watermelon & mint agua fresca
    (AH-gua FRES-ka day sen-DEE-a ee MEN-ta)

  • Sorbet au pamplemousse, Grapefruit sorbet
    (sore-BAY oh pahmp-luh-MOOSE)

  • Sfogliatelle, A many layered pastry

  • Brezel mit rüben meerrettich mayonnaise, Pretzel with beet-horseradish mayo
    (BRET-zel mitt ROO-ben MEHR-re-TIC MY-own-NYE-seh)

Participants can also enter a raffle for a free Living Language Platinum product, Fodor’s travel guides, and gift certificates to some of the most buzzed about and iconic Italian, German, Spanish, and French spots in the city like Eataly, Bierhaus, and restaurants Empellón, and Recette.
