The Dessert Truck is Coming!!!

(Photo by Richard J. Velasco for New York Magazine)

THIS is the perfect example of why New York is the greatest place on Earth. It's one of the only cities in the US where you can eat like a queen without ever picking up a pan or sitting down in a restaurant. Fact is, you can buy almost anything from a truck here--hotdogs, ceviche, soup, tacos, gyros, smoothies . . . and now extremely tasty gourmet desserts.

The other day I was walking home when I spotted the van shown above parked about a block from my house. Of course I HAD to stop. Who could pass by the Dessert Truck without taking a peek at the menu? I ended up ordering one of the best chocolate dishes I've ever sunk my teeth into.

Today, New York magazine has a short piece on the Dessert Truck, which is run by two young roommates--one a chef and the other a business student. I applaud them for what they've added to the city--and possibly to my waistline.

Chocolate is the secret to relaxation. No, seriously! Picture this:
You are very stressed out. Nothing is going right. Suddenly you remember you still have a chocolate bar from Halloween. Already, things are looking up. You sit down on the rug and put it in your mouth. Oops! You wanted it so badly you forgot to unwrap it. You do that. As soon as it's in your mouth, your troubles begin to float away on chocolate colored clouds. You know exactly how to solve that math problem, you think of a design for a shelving unit that would keep your room neat, and you know exactly how to remember those French verbs. Say aaaaaaaahhh...
Or something like that, anyway. At least it tastes good!
