Have you ever wished you could sightsee and experience eclectic food all at once without having to travel the world? Well, your dreams have been answered. Midtown Lunch and the New York Transit Museum recently partnered to offer a tour of about 15 food trucks called “Midtown Eats! With Blondie and Brownie.” The tour is led by food writers and goes around Grand Central Terminal with the intention of commemorating the famed terminal’s centennial.

According to DNAinfo, the first tour took place on May 17, led by food writers Siobhan Wallace and Alexandra Penfold, (also known as Brownie and Blondie), and the next is coming up on June 14. A few of the participating food trucks included Kwik Gourmet, Uncle Gussy’s, El Rey Del Sabor, and Cinnamon Snail. On the tour, you’ll see items from gyros to Korean barbeque to vegan donuts, which Wallace says many of the tour-goers were surprised to find that they liked.

The tour goes up Park Ave. from Grand Central Terminal, takes about two hours long, and costs $45 for non-members of the museum, a bargain for the experience. You won’t just eat, either; you’ll also learn about the history of the cart, and of the neighborhood.
