From Michelin Starred celebrity chefs to some of the best food trucks on the planet, you can find pretty much any food imaginable across the five boroughs, but with so much choice, where do you start?! To help you out, we’ve complied our list of five iconic New York food you cannot miss on your next trip to the Big Apple!
Pizza from Joe’s Pizza
Nothing says New York like a good slice of pizza! There are so many great options across the city that picking the best will always be a hotly debated topic, but the slices from Joe’s have found their way into the hearts of many New Yorkers and tourists alike. Find a better quality lunch for $3, we dare you!
Hot Dog from any street cart
You’ll find it hard to go 5 minutes in New York without encountering a food cart, and grabbing a hot dog from one is a rite of passage! Plus, you can’t really complain about a $2 lunch now can you?!
Pastrami Sandwich from Katz Deli
Have you ever seen a more glorious sandwich?! There’s never a quiet moment in the truly iconic, Katz Deli, but that’s all part of the charm. You can embrace the buzz and eat your sandwich in store or grab one to take away, but either way, we bet you won’t be finishing it in one sitting!
Chicken Over Rice from The Halal Guys
Starting off as a simple food truck, The Halal Guys soon saw their queue growing so quickly it became a traffic hazard! Years later, they now have 5 carts and 2 restaurants dotted around the city so you can get your fill of incredible chicken and gyros wherever you may find yourself!
Bagel from Russ and Daughters
There’s no better way to start your New York morning than with a bagel for breakfast, and there’s no better bagel than Russ and Daughters! For a truly traditional taste, get the cream cheese and lox (smoked salmon) which really put R&D on the map over 100 years ago!
