  2. Impressive selection that I mainly agree with. I can't believe the Bagel Hole made it! That's a secret only park slopers know about. I'd add B&H Dairy to this list.

  3. Stumbled upon your channel. Great content but at 1:38, you completely butchered the word 'nonna'. It's pronounced with NO-on-nah. Usually white people mispronounce Asian words, this caught me off guard…

  4. first of all, peter pan's has the best donut, second of all, no chinatown locals ever goes to joe's for soup dumplings

  5. Nha Trang Center in Chinatown. They got big bowls of Vietnamese noodle soup for under $5. Lots of Vietnamese rice dishes too. The food is good, fast, and dirt cheap.

  6. I'm coming to NYC in July 2019 and would love to see a video on where to find the "Best Hamburgers" around New York!

  7. Thank you for info for NYC places to find good, effortable eateries including vegetarian options. It is helpful in price comparising as well as being introduced to possibilities of places to eat in the back of a store.

  8. i went to a shawarma (sp) joint in Greenwich village i can't remember the name. price was solid and it was excellent. they had a fire a couple of years ago. it was on a main street with a lot of other restaurants. very few seats.

  9. BarrioBrother, great pick on that Ukranian place and those beautiful knishes!!! ????? Surprised though you haven't come across a good Polish place during your NYC food adventures. There's gotta be some good Polish delis/bakeries. Much love to you and Adriana!!!!

  10. Have you tried Otafuku
    -236 E. 9th Street in NYC? Best Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki, yummy! They have some other delicious treats as well but I always went there for Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki combo or just one or the other. The combo is great because you get 4 Takoyaki balls along with like a half of the Okonomiyaki and it's super filling and satisfying.

  11. When I Go To New York Can You Show Me Places ? I’m Going In November I’m Coming From California

  12. 2 places of recommendation for all locals in Flushing, Queens
    #1 Carnation Bakery, 4605 Kissena Blvd, Flushing, NY 11355. Try Pineapple bread ($1.7 with custard cream or red bean), because of its quick turn over, many times you can buy it just baked, which is in its finest. Try to pair it with iced coffee ($2.5), it is heaven on earth. #2 Chu Kee Dumpling, 40-52 Main St, Flushing, NY 11354, $1.75 for its meat/veggie bun, pair that with small hot soy bean milk $1.25. This is a typical breakfast, but you can eat it as snack, too.

  13. How do you make sure that you have clean hands when you eat by hands fx pizza and so on, in the city?
    Or am I just overreacting?

  14. Great video, but you missed the Chinese food carts along Canal street. $5 for a beef bowl, and you're good to go. It's an actual meal, not just a pretzel or something. Sit down and eat it near a guy playing a erhu and you've got free music, too!

  15. Hey – couple of Aussie's here coming to NYC in September so we've been keeping a keen eye on your videos. What is absolutely shocking us is the amount of single use plastic plates, forks and cups being used for all this takeaway food!! We want to eat cheap but we DON'T want to be a part of this wastefulness! Could you possibly do a video on cheap places to go that you eat on re-usable plates? (Like the dim sum restaurants in this video). Thanks for your videos and looking forward to our trip 🙂

  16. I’m a native New Yorker of a certain age and not easily impressed. You are wonderful! Great selections, well presented. Thanks!

  17. Wow, there's actually cheap food in expensive NYC. I'll follow your guide when I can save up for the Big Apple ?

  18. Why not do a recommendation by area for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? I would do the Time Square area if I were you. When I visited I stayed in that area and stumbled upon a ramen shop called Supporo. It was very cold that time of year so we stopped by that place often. Looks like it's no more but that's an idea that a tourist would likely want to know what they can eat around where they stay with temperatures taken into account.

  19. My fav pizza is Joe's pizza. Try ! One location is on 14th and 3rd. Another is in the w.vilage on Carmine st. Try the sicilian! !!

  20. Just came back from a 2 week stay in NJ/NYC….although there are many pizza spots/0.99 pizza, my favorite spot was the 0.99 Express Pizza on 8th & W. 43rd near Times Square….omg, the best!!! Another spot was a Cuban spot called El Unico but it's in Union City, NJ….full plate of Cuban food for less than $5!! The roasted chicken comes with leg quarter, full pan of rice, frijoles and maduros for $3.50!!! Léchon Asado (roasted pork) with the same fixings $5!!! Those were my go to spots and a bodega sandwich from the EZ Minimart in the LES right off of Rivington and Eldridge ????….I did splurge on a reubin pastrami from Kat'z prior to leaving….$ well spent!

  21. Video is not of much use if you don't give an ADDRESS or directions to each location. Going to NYC next week so how can I even find any of these places?

  22. Thanks for the Ukrainian place in EV. Try Bo Ky, Bayard between Mott and Mulberry, Ben's pizza at MacDougal and W. 3rd. Also, Haru Sushi, at Beaver and Pear, way downtown – not cheap, but very reasonable for great sushi.

  23. I'd highly recommend Matto espresso (all over midtown) – quality 2$ coffee and breakfast snacks (even 1$ each if you order via the Ritual app). Try the pistachio muffins!

  24. Also try Wah Fung in Chinatown – $6.50 for a large portion of roast pork and duck on rice, plenty for 2 people. But cash and take away only! But well worth it!

  25. Pizza originally comes from Napoli, the famous Italian city that was built by Greeks.
    In ancient Greece they used to eat a pie similar to todays pizza.
    It suddenly makes a weird connection. Is it?

  26. 3.50 por un taco? Eso cuesta una orden aquí … además creo que es un error garrafal ir a nyc a comer comida de tu país. Genial tu canal, saludos
