New York City Food Tour: The Foodie Paradise

New York City Food Tour! We’ve visited many different foodie hot spots in New York City on the blog before. We’ve gone to Chinatown, Koreatown, Columbia Heights and so many other places. New York City is starting to look a lot different than it did in early March and April. Lots of restaurants really need our support. I’m going to share some of my favorite spots to eat in New York City.

Tutt Heights

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love all things Middle Eastern. Tutt Heights specializes in pitas.  They also serve pizza and have a wide variety of appetizers such as hummus and tabbouleh. I want to try one of their smoothies the next time I’m in the Columbia Heights section of Brooklyn.

Address: 47 Hicks St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

This is another great place located in Brooklyn. Asya is an Indian restaurant. The food is great. And the ambiance is on par with the amazing food. There are a lot of vegetarian options as well as lunch specials. The last time I was there I had their Tandoori Chicken. I also tasted the curry one of my friends ordered. It was really really good. I wish I could remember which curry it was. They have a few. So I recommend their curries too.

That’s a mouthful. My mom actually tried Wagamama before I did. She and a friend of mine went to see this famous vegan chef Gaz Oakley, who was preparing a special menu for the restaurant that night. I went back with my friend on a different trip. It’s an Asian fusion restaurant with a really nice ambiance. They have many types of dumplings and noodles. There are vegan options. Definitely try their fresh juices and unique soft drinks.

Jacques Torres Chocolate New York

Every time I travel through Grand Central Terminal, I have to pick up a macaron. Their seasonal flavors are amazing. I love the passion fruit. The shop also has lots of other desserts and chocolates.

This Korean restaurant makes me feel most like I’m actually back in South Korea. It has to be one of my top choices in any New York City Food Tour. They have a great buffet (which I’m sure had to be closed because of Covid-19). They also have a wide selection of pre-made appetizers and entrees. Think Korean comfort food all boxed up and ready to go home with you. Some examples are beef stews, scallion pancakes and pumpkin porridge. Many of these are under $5. The tofu here tastes like chicken, and is the best I’ve ever tasted anywhere.

Address: 12 W 32nd St, New York, NY 10001

I could honestly go on and on. There are so many great places in New York City to eat. This New York City Food Tour didn’t even go into the Korean fried chicken restaurants or the food arcade in Koreatown. Check out this post for more on those spots.
