Lunch:

Farid Grill/Farid Kebab

Stop by for a kebab for a snack or some chicken over rice  or a sandwich for lunch. Though they take a bit to serve because they cook the meat in front of you on a charcoal grill, the wait is definitely worth it. Sidenote: They also do delivery.

King Souvlaki of Astoria, another local staple, is also great for pretty much any meal of the day. However, their chicken kebabs and greek fries covered in fresh Greek imported feta are delicious snacks for in between meals.

Langos Food Truck

This doughy Hungarian flatbread can be served plain or with your toppings of choice. It’s a bit on the heavier side so it’s a great plate to split with a friend. Be sure to check their Facebook and Twitter for their location.

Dessert:

Cones, Shakes, Sundaes on the Water

Ice Cream

Via Michel Dominguez

This is just your typical, straight-from-childhood-memory ice cream truck, but you just can’t beat the view. Walk off your dinner through Astoria Park and walk over to the water. The truck will be waiting for you to satisfy that sweet tooth.
