The Frites ‘n’ Meats truck is no newbie to the food truck revolution in New York City. Since food trucks have taken cities like New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco and others by storm, trucks have popped up with all types of cuisine. There are your simple coffee and pastries trucks, ice cream trucks, American cuisine, Malaysian, Mexican, you name. If you can think it up, there is probably a food truck out there.
Frites ‘n’ Meats motto is why can’t you get a super fancy burger, quickly, at non-super fancy prices? Now you can. I’ve had a number of great burgers in New York City from 5 Napkin Burger, to Nice Matin, and more. Many are great, but those first few are more than $15. While great, why can’t I get a great tasting burger for under $10, cooked a nice medium rare with quality toppings. Apparently now I can.
Frites ‘n’ Meats offers a burger of the day, the ability to call ahead and pickup (best option), plus a nice variety of choices for sauces, toppings and buns. For a cheap, yet tasty choice, you can stick with the $5.50 grass fed angus burger, add some cheese and bacon, and you are coming in at $7. Where else can get something that cheap? I went with a regular burger, medium rare, on a brioche with mesclun greens, tomatoes, onions and goat cheese. The cheese was plentiful and oozing all over the bun and down the sides. It was a little messy, but well worth it. The daily burgers typically are $8.50, but offer a variety of toppings that may be that price anyway.
A note about meat, buns and cheeses. All three of these things come from top notch spots in the area. The buns are from Balthazar Bakery, cheeses from Murray’s and top grade beef. It is a true combination of stellar ingredients, cooked right and for a price that can hardly be beat. Quick, start tracking them on twitter and bite into a juicy burger.
