Shúkos is a food truck serving Guatemalan food that will make you forget all of the other lunches you ate in the same week. Most of the menu is made up of sandwiches (called Shúkos), but our favorite order here consists of the papas shúkas with steak, which comes with a pile of fries topped with mayo, grilled meat, and salsa dulce on top. Shúkos bounces around from the Bronx to Midtown East, but lately they’ve been posted up at East 75th Street and 2nd Avenue on the UES.
