New York City's finest street-food chefs vied for the Third Annual Vendy Awards on Saturday. After a four-hour cook-off in Tompkins Square Park, the judges' votes were tallied, and Thiru "Dosa Man" Kumar's vegan cart claimed the winner's cup. Muhammed Rahman, whose Kwik Meal won the People's Choice award, tells how it's done, and Judge Mo Rocca talks about the joys of street food with Alison Stewart and Luke Burbank.
