Sammy's Food Cart at Jackson Heights

This is Sammy's Halal, winner of the 2006 Vendy Awards for the best street vendor in New York City. Mr. Samiul Noor sells his chicken and lamb with rice combo in a cart on the corner of Broadway and 74th Street in Jackson Heights.

I tried Sammy's chicken platter ($4.99) last night and I have to say, it is not as good as the ones I used to get from the Middle Eastern street vendor in Astoria. The Middle Eastern chicken combo came with pickled beets and raw onions sprinkled with harissa spice mix, which is super addictive.

So where would you go for delicious but yet inexpensive food in your city?
