Old Traditional Polish Cuisine Food Truck is the only food truck serving up authentic dishes in Manhattan. By visiting this authentic food truck, you can try such delicious treats as their traditional kielbasa, and pierogis filled with your choice of potato and cheese, meat, spinach and cheese, or sour kraut and cheese. With hundreds served every day, the truck attracts swarms of customers as it moves from location to location on a daily basis.
Eva Lokaj, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Old Traditional Polish Cuisine Food Truck and Catering, believes that their plan to stick to the classics instead of incorporating things like Mac n’ Cheese pierogis to their menu is what truly sets them apart from the pack.
“We are carrying on with the traditions as we offer especially traditional and classical polish food,” says Lokaj. “We actually stick to the originals verses branching out to new wave polish foods.”
While the location of the Old Traditional Polish Cuisine Food Truck is never set in stone, fans of its food can locate the truck on a daily basis through their twitter account @OldTraditionalPolish. Starting in November, The Polish Cultural Institute will have you covered. The Institute will publish the truck’s daily schedule of where it will be parked and slinging out your favorite dishes. This will be perfect as the weather starts to get colder and you may not want to scramble to find your favorite Polish comfort foods while the trudging through the city’s freezing wind tunnels.
