The Low Down


The Extras: There's usually a line during the lunch hour, but it moves very quickly. Head over when the lunch crowd goes back to work and you won't have to wait.

Where to Sit: There are no seats, of course, but the cart is stationed just across the street from Union Square, where park benches abound.

Know Before You Go: Although there are no official hours and no phone number (it's a street cart, after all), Rafiqi's is there virtually every day, all day, until well after sundown.
