It’s that time again kids. Plato Putas and Hanne Whitfield are proud to bring you another edition of Street Food.

When you hear the term “Street Food” you normally think of hot dogs, ice cream and pretzels. But at Plato Putas we’re taking it back to the basics where street food literally means food found on the street. Hanne, a friend of the Double P’s, has come across some unusual pavement platters in New York City. From time to time, she’ll share her gems with maps to the scene of the crime.
