    Ohhhhh my lord, that is SO.MUCH.FOOD to read about. I am sitting here with my coffee and toast, and I feel deeply inadequate. When ever we go to NYC, we stay with family and eat with them loads, I always feel so cheated. Next time we are there, I need to break free and head to one of these places.
    I have pinned this post, I do hope that’s okay.

    I traveled a bit in my 20s. My biggest regret from those days is that I didn’t appreciate the FOOD on my travels like I do now. I was too concerned with superficial things that didn’t matter. Today- nearing the end of my 30s food is the one thing I look forward to the most on our travels. Kudos to you for knowing what’s worth seeing :)

    So you are my type of traveler. I travel to eat :-). And what a better place than NYC for our kind of traveler. And yes you were right to warm us at the beginning of your post that it contains lots of delicious bites. Bien sûr, I’m hungry now. And craving for a good hot dog!

    Great post Adelina! I managed to get to New York a few years back with my dad and we both loved the food there – especially Katz’s Deli and Absolute Bagel (I’m pretty sure that was the one!). I’m lucky that my dad is possibly even more of a foodie than me so traveling with him is always an adventure! Safe travels.

    Oooh, you’re making me hungry! That’s a great post – I think it’s so important to get food right when you’re travelling, it can make or break a trip…and certainly hubbie is only happy when he knows where his next meal is coming from!

    Food is one of the best ways to experience a place and I think you really experienced NYC. NYC is one of my favorite places ever and I can say I’ve never been to any of these places (which isn’t so hard considering all the choices). Great post…glad I read it on a full stomach haha :)

    When the time comes and I make it to NYC, top of my list is pizza, hotdogs and sandwiches. It’s interesting how the city if famous for it! Sometimes I’m always focused on the travels; sightseeing and doing things, that I forget about food. Can’t really do that in NYC though now…

    As a lifelong NYer, I am impressed! You did pretty well! I’m sorry Veselka let you down. I haven’t been there recently but it’s usually pretty good. For soup dumplings, I like Joe’s Shanghai or Joe’s Ginger. I want to try that Korean place you mention — I like Koreatown!

      Yay! I’m glad you approve. With so many places to choose from it was hard to narrow it down to a manageable number. I can’t wait to go back and keep on eating. Gotta try Joe’s Shanghai – heard good things about it.

    Great round up. I haven’t tried Shake Shack, and even though I hear it’s great, I’m not sure I want to deal with those lines. But I’ve experienced several of these and agree with your recommendations.

    I would love to go to Ethnic Bites, better yet I would love to move to New York City!

    Ohh man you are making me SO hungry. NYC was foodie heaven for us and I’d love to go back and spend a month just eating our way around the city.

    I find that papaya drinks are always a disappointment, incidentally.

    Yummm. Great photos to accompany these helpful reviews. That Korean dish blows my mind! I don’t think I would enjoy it one bit, but the history is really interesting.

    Oh wow! I’m an expat too. I live in Italy, and this post made me miss New York terribly! I love, love, love Grimaldi’s and Brooklyn Ice Cream Works. One of my favorite things to do … walk over the bridge, then stop for pizza and ice cream.
