This Bangladeshi food truck in Jackson Heights is always parked outside of the Duane Reade on 73rd Street, and it’s where you should be going to eat incredible fuchka. Each order is served with a wreath of puffed puri that’s been filled with boiled yellow peas and potatoes, and topped with raw red onions and shaved egg yolks. It’s imperative that you spoon a little bit of tamarind water on each one before you pop it in your mouth. Between the sweet tamarind, the sharp raw onions, and the hot mash of peas and potatoes, this is one of our favorite food truck snacks we’ve ever eaten in NYC. In case you’re closer to Jamaica, Queens, Tong also has a truck there.
