White and Hot: 28th and Madison

White and Hot TruckLocation: 28th and Madison
Price: $5.00
Container: Rectangular (Styrofoam)

I’ve had this cart many of times — sometimes after a night out, sometimes for dinner, sometimes for a snack.  It’s always great.  To start off, it comes with veggies: lettuce, cucumbers, and carrots.  Everything is served on top of yellow rice.  It’s served in a regular rectangular styrafoam container (not as deep as 41st and Madison).  The chicken is just the best.  It’s shredded, moist, flavorful, and plentiful.  The best part about this cart I’d say — is it’s ratio of chicken to rice/salad.  It’s a perfect mix.  Unless you don’t mix the plate (what kind of chicken and rice eater are you?), you White and Hot Containerare usually never left with food that doesn’t have some chicken in it.

The white sauce and hot sauce is really really good.  However, sometimes they are a tad inconsistent on how much hot sauce they give you.  I have gotten it much spicier before, but I think they are assuming most people don’t want it super spicy.  If you’re unsure, just ask for a little bit more.

My final verdict on this cart?  If you put it in a round container, and put some pita bread in it — you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference from the famous guys on 53rd and 6th (okay — the white sauce isn’t THAT good, but who really wants to wait on that line?).  Seriously.

Every damn thing about the chicken
Perfect ratio of chicken to rice/salad
Sometimes inconsistent on white/hot sauce amounts.

    Hey Street Meat Steve!I haven’t visited many C&R carts, but this one is by far my favorite! I noticed they do have pitas because of other things on their menu. Next I go, I am going to ask for a pita on the side!

    […] the way back, I’m thinking… hmm I should get some Chicken and Rice.  I really wanted White & Hot on 28th and Madison, so I make my way there.  When I approached, I didn’t see the signature yellow truck, but […]
