Brooklyn Army Terminal
Tacos Los Poblanos FIFTH AVE., NR. 54TH ST., SUNSET PARK
➽ THE ORIGINAL TRUCK that spawned a mini-empire draws late-night crowds with a full menu of tortas, burritos, and tacos but is perhaps best known for its al pastor, carved off the spit in full, glorious view, and its indispensable green salsa.
Yun Nan Flavour Garden 5121 EIGHTH AVE., SUNSET PARK
➽ VACCINES ARE WELL AND GOOD, but the hearty fare at this Yunnan-province rice-noodle specialist provides health-giving benefits of its own. A bracing bowl of the Dumpling With Noodle in Hot & Sour Sauce, for instance, could clear a sinus at 60 paces.
Tanoreen 7523 THIRD AVE., BAY RIDGE
➽ YES, THIS MECCA OF MEZE is 20 blocks away from the Terminal, but what’s a city mile when you’re talking about some of New York’s best Middle Eastern cooking—everything from baba ghanoush to Brussels sprouts to weekend specials like a life-affirming lamb shank.
