One of the most enticing snacks on the menu of this Midtown truck, gizdodo ($5) is a peppery combo of chewy gizzard and soft, sweet dodo, or ripe plantain. It's easy to divvy up, our merry band discovered, even in the absence of convenient seating. (Many regular customers probably return to their offices at the Nigerian consulate; the truck's regular parking place is just outside.) The back-and-forth of textures and flavors is a big part of the appeal, so share with care — don't get stuck holding a container that's all giz and no dodo.
