Full description
Experience New York City’s street food beyond the hot dog carts and pretzel stands. Take a 2-hour guided walk through the Financial District and sample an international buffet of foodie offerings. Observe the genius that crams full kitchens into improbably small carts, and hear stories from proprietors, who range from struggling immigrants to culinary school dropouts and former 4-star restaurant chefs. Along the way, learn about the history of the industry and the challenges of running these thriving, but feverishly demanding, businesses. You will never look at street carts the same way again once you see and taste the delectable dishes crafted in the curbside kitchens. The menu rotates from day-to-day in order to best represent the variety of delicious options. Tastings may include the likes of falafel over rice, Jamaican jerk chicken with soul food sides, Bengali kati rolls, Grandma's pizza, Vietnamese bánh mì sandwiches, and gourmet hot chocolate, cappuccino, or iced coffee.

    Wir hatten diese Tour mit Brian und es war sehr gut. Brian ist mit voller Leidenschaft dabei und gibt so viele Informationen wie möglich weiter. Er kümmert sich gut um die Gruppe, das Essen war sehr gut und man hat einfach nur Spaß. Er bietet auch eine Tour in Midtown an, die etwas andere Gerichte zum verkosten beinhaltet. Wer eine Foodtour machen will, sollte auf jeden Fall diese hier auswählen.
