New York City is a foodie’s paradise! It’s almost impossible to decide what to eat next. There’s just so many options and so little time. Typically what I do before I travel is do a little food research, this consists of me searching yelp, blogs, and Instagram for the best things to eat in the city. I’ve complied a list of my top 10 favorite spots in NYC.
(Before we get started, I must warn you that I have a major sweet tooth!)
2 Bro’s Pizza (31 W 46th St New York, NY 10036)
I promise you will not find a better tasting pizza for $1! Locals are always on the go and a slice of $1 pizza is the perfect food to grab, fold, and eat. The pizza is thin, which makes for easy folding. The cheese pizza may look plain but trust me, it tastes amazing.
Dudley’s (85 Orchard St, New York, NY 10002)
I consider myself a brunch enthusiast and when it comes to brunch spots in NYC… Dudley’s is one of the best. Everything on the menu is delicious! I highly recommend the truffle fries — the truffle aioli is heavenly!
Cha Cha Matcha (373 Broome St, New York, NY 10013)
If you love matcha as much as I do, then this spot is for you! They make a really great iced matcha latte that’s super smooth and not bitter at all. The soft serve is a combination of matcha and grapefruit — sounds like an odd combination but actually tastes great.
Lam Zhou Handmade Noodle and Dumpling (144 E Broadway, New York, NY 10002)
If you’re looking for an authentic Chinese noodle place that’s cheap and tasty, then this is the spot. They make their noodles by hand in the back of the restaurant. The restaurant is definitely not fancy and the seating is a bit tight, but the great food make up for it! It’s about $5 for a bowl of beef noodles.. a price you cannot beat!
Vivi Bubble Tea (205 Allen St, New York, NY 10002)
Vivi is a chain bubble tea shop and this location is the only one that does the cotton candy drinks. It’s a really cool concept and is totally Instagram worthy. Careful how much cotton candy you dissolve into your drink because it can get pretty sweet.
Woops! BakeShop (548 Driggs Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211)
This is one of the most aesthetically pleasing cafes I’ve ever been to. Everything is so pretty! Be sure to grab a box of macarons on the way out 😉
Loosie’s Kitchen (91 S 6th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249)
Come here if you are obsessed with brunch food and marble tables! I recommend the chicken & waffles if you’re looking to indulge.
Eggloo (60 Mulberry St, New York, NY 10013)
Great spot for Hong Kong egg waffles. Everything can be customized, right down to the flavor of egg waffles. Don’t forget to add some Pocky sticks!
Dominique Ansel (89 Spring St, New York, NY 10012)
Cronuts = croissant + donut .. need I say more? Line ups are long but worth the wait! Come around 8AM and you will be guaranteed a cronut. The flavour changes every month and they never repeat a flavour. A cronut is seriously one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.
By Chloe (185 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10012)
I’m not vegan but I can appreciate good vegan food. There’s always a lineup at By Chloe but it’s definitely worth it to line up and give it a try! I highly recommend the taco bowl and lemonade.
