You will recall there is a Rhong Tiam Express in the Flatiron at 31 East 21st Street and of course the Michelin starred Rhong Tiam Thai restaurant in the Village.
It’s all the creation of Chef Andy Yang, and the truck features eclectic Asian flavors on a proprietary burger made of 3 cuts of hormone and antibiotic free USDA Prime Angus. They will have 10 burgers on the menu priced at $10 each. Here are a few of them:
