A while ago, a friend started dating a guy who lives in Astoria. More accurately, he lives and breathes Astoria, and once told us that there was no better Greek food truck in all of NYC than King Souvlaki. This truck on 31st Street and 31st Avenue is indeed the best place to eat chicken souvlaki pita sandwiches stuffed with French fries and white sauce, as well as charred, homemade lamb sausages on sticks. Don’t think of this as just another gyro truck, King Souvlaki is a serious institution. They even have their own ATM built into the vehicle.
