Tickets are now on sale for the 6th Annual Vendy Awards, the "intense grill-to-grill cook-off" to determine NYC’s top street chef. Five street vendors were chosen by over a thousand eaters who voted on the website for The Street Vendor Project, which advocates on behalf of street vendors. The tasting/competition will be held on September 25th on Governors Island, and the finalists are Yassir Zraouli and his Moroccan inspired Bistro Truck; Astoria’s self-appointed “King of Falafel” Freddy Zeidaies; the Venezuelan truck Patacon Pisao, based out of Inwood; traditional Mexican truck El Rey de Sabor in midtown; and last year's Rookie Vendor winner, Oleg Voss of Schnitzels and Things. The winner of the coveted "Vendy Cup" will be decided by a panel of judges evaluating flavor, portability and personality.
