There are two Mystikk Masala trucks in Midtown East - one is usually parked at 40th and Park and the other is at 47th and Park - and they both have the same menu of excellent Indian food. Like the chana masala platter, which comes with a spicy sauce, and daal and rice on the side. The food here is exactly the sort of thing everyone in your Midtown East office will ask you about when you return carrying a box of it (except the people who’ve already been inducted into the Mystikk Masala fan club). On the off chance you need a 2pm samosa pick-me-up instead of a $7 iced coffee, that’s an acceptable way to use this truck.
