For many people around the world, visiting New York is an experience they simply have to sample. From reading about it in the press and seeing it in the movies to following celebrities who shop there and seeing delicious New York-style recipes, the Big Apple is a popular choice with many travellers. When it comes to the aforementioned New York-style cuisine, that is another mightily appealing aspect of visiting the city.
With the Big Apple comprising of five boroughs and a wide range of different cultures, New York’s diverse society has created a truly mouthwatering food scene. The array of different food in the city is what makes it so appealing to food lovers. While numerous English destinations specialise in fish and chips, alongside the other types of food featured in these food-themed online slots, for example, New York’s offering is arguably more extensive and offers a taste experience many other American cities struggle to rival. From pizza and bagels to burgers and sandwiches, New York’s food offering is one of the best in the world.
With an array of restaurants to visit and dishes to taste throughout the city, let’s take a look at some of the food you simply have to try when visiting New York.
New York is famous for its bagels, and once you try one, it’s incredibly easy to see why. Whether you’re in need of a late-night snack or a memorable breakfast treat, a New York bagel is a staple in the city and is a go-to option for many New Yorkers. Popular options include Russ & Daughters, Absolute Bagels, Murray’s Bagels, and Ess-A-Bagel.
If you’ve never tried pizza then, well, frankly, you haven’t lived. What many people haven’t sampled, though, is New York’s array of authentic pizza. In fact, there’s nothing quite like it. New York-style pizza is in high demand globally but you can’t beat a taste of it in the city of its birth. From artisanal, Neapolitan-style pizzas at Motorino Pizza to brick-oven pies at John’s Pizza, there are a wealth of options well worth sampling in the city. Other popular pizza places include Lucali, Artichoke Basille’s Pizza, and Roberta’s Pizza.
Burgers and sandwiches
Burgers and sandwiches tend to be featured on a variety of menus throughout the city, with many being offered in the same type of establishment, hence why we’ve paired them together. From the Minetta Tavern and Black Label Burger who specialise burgers to amazing sandwiches from the likes of Numpang and Taim, there is a wealth of options throughout the city offering tasty bread-filled treats from around the world.
Ramen is now popular globally but it is perhaps best sampled in New York, especially when factoring in the variety of different takes on ramen throughout the city. Right now, the warming Japanese noodle soup is a go-to option for many, with Japanese restaurants popping up everywhere in the Big Apple. Must-try ramen dishes include triple pork triple garlic mazemen and an even a more authentic, basic ramen dish, especially if you haven’t tried it before. Popular places to try it include Ivan Ramen, Ippudo Ramen, Kuro-Obi, and Chuko Ramen.
Visit the food trucks
New York’s food truck scene has contributed greatly towards the city’s food culture in recent times, with people grabbing a range of tasty takeaway snacks from a selection of different businesses. From delectable kimchi tacos to glorious Belgian waffles, food trucks worth trying are prominent all over the city.
