Whether you’re in Brooklyn, Queens, or Manhattan, take comfort in knowing that you can get to a Makina truck without having to cross a river. All three trucks serve Habesha food, which includes both Eritrean and Ethiopian cuisine and culture. No matter which protein you choose for lunch (we like the beef tibs or the vegetable combo option), get the injera as your base. Makina’s injera is heavily fermented, sour, and you’re inevitably going to want more of it to sop up your gomen and miser. The original truck is parked at Fort Greene Park Monday through Saturday from 11am to 9pm, but you can also find Makina trucks outside of Rockefeller Center in Midtown and on 30th Street in LIC.
