MIDTOWN — Commuters tired of the usual Dunkin’ Donuts fare can pick up traditional Polish pastries from a food truck in honor of „Fat Thursday” this week.
The Old Traditional Polish Cuisine food truck will serve up pączki — Polish pastries that resemble donuts — to commemorate the last Thursday before the start of Lent.
The truck will be parked on West 52nd Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., or on 47th Street between Park and Lexington avenues if parking issues arise, catering and marketing manager Eva Lokaj said.
From Friday to Tuesday, Feb. 9, the truck will operate out of Midtown between 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., and will post its yet-to-be-determined locations on Twitter and Facebook.
“Our food is very unique and hard to find in New York, especially in Manhattan,” Lokaj wrote in an email. “Everything we serve on the truck… is like [what] Grandma used to make.”
In addition to $3 pączki, patrons can pick up grilled Kielbasa, pierogi, pickle salad and pickles.
The truck imports its water, juices, pickles and pickle salads from Poland, Lokaj said.
“We are bringing our custom and heritage to the streets of Manhattan,” she added.
