Street food is suddenly hip, but in New York it's as old as salt on pretzels. So we asked a Big Apple vendor for dirt on - well, how dirty are those carts, anyway? He wanted to be anonymous. We agreed, so long as he gave us extra kraut.

    Does not surprise me.. remember in Food Inc where the government tried to shut down the guy processing chickens outside under a tent. They measure the contamination of his chickens and those of the big corporations that were selling at the supermarkets... the results showed his chickens was almost contaminate free whilst the ones at the grocery store was thousands of times higher.

    The funny part is people walk by earlier and look down at the truck and people eating there. Later on when they come back usually drunk,they`d even eat monkey meat on a stick! hahaha

    One fourth of human population doesn't have enough to eat. Luxury is far more serious sin than average earthlings think. Get ready for Judgement Day. (NOT May 21)

      Read the Gospel of John and the Book of James in the New Testament Bible for solution.

      If people didn't breed incessantly there would be plenty to eat.

    I always thought "street meat" was slang for hookers.

    That's surprising. I always associated street food with the stigma of being germ factories. Makes sense that people wouldn't eat there day after day if they were.

    Still unanswered: the question of what exactly's in "white sauce", and why it's so great on chicken and spicy rice.
