    New York City is an incredible food city because of the diversity of the food available. On this New York City food tour we started off the day by going to one of the most famous restaurants in NYC, Katz's Delicatessen to eat pastrami. Next, we ate at a restaurants in New York City Chinatown called Spicy Village for an amazing pan of “Spicy Big Tray Chicken,” and for dinner I had chicken over rice from The Halal Guys, one of the most popular New York City street foods.
    1:21 Katz's Delicatessen - There are few places in New York City for food as famous as Katz's Delicatessen, an absolute legendary deli in the city. Although it’s well overpriced, because it’s such a heritage NYC institution, it’s one of the must eat restaurants in the city. I arrived early in the morning, hoping to beat the crowds, which I did (go for breakfast if you want to avoid lines). After a little contemplation, I decided to go for the reuben with pastrami and a half of corned beef. The corned beef was alright, but the reuben with pastrami was incredible. Total price - $48.56
    13:32 Spicy Village - Next up on this New York City food tour my wife and I walked around New York City Chinatown and eventually found our way over to a restaurant called Spicy Village (thanks to Monty for this recommendation). The one dish I mainly wanted to eat at Spicy Village was the Spicy big tray chicken, a pan of fried chicken parts and noodles in a spicy and mouth numbing broth. It was everything I had hoped for and more, and it was one of the best foods I ate in New York City! Total price - $22 - But along with the spicy big tray chicken we had an extra dish as well.
    18:32 Times Square - One of the busiest and most recognized squares in the world is Times Square in New York City. So in the afternoon, happy and full of Spicy Village and Katz’s Deli, we walked over to Times Square to enjoy the people watching and the ridiculous amount of lights and action.
    20:19 The Halal Guys - While walking through Times Square I remembered that one of the most popular New York City street food stalls wasn’t too far away. So we walked over to The Halal Guys, and I ordered chicken over rice. The chicken over rice itself is prepared pretty plain, but the flavor in The Halal Guys is all in the white and red sauce, both of which are incredibly flavorful and delicious. It was my first time to eat at The Halal Guys, and I’m pretty happy I did. Chicken over rice - $7
    It was a great first full day in New York City with some incredibly delicious food. Probably my favorite dish of the day was the spicy big tray chicken from Spicy Village, but all the food was so food.

    So another words you don't taste the food you just taste the hot sauce!! I see why you think everything tastes good cuz you like hot sauce. As Pitmaster I would hate to see people cover my brisket and hot sauce and say it's good cuz you're not going to taste anything but hot sauce just my opinion

    It is a bit concerning that Mark considers himself a food blogger when his objectivity is questionable...he seems reticent to criticize; when everything he eats is "out of this world", I wonder why he hesitates to go out on a limb to be honest...I haven't seen any of his videos where he is honestly critical about his food experiences. If everything he eats is so amazing, he is either extremely lucky, or he is just a commercial for everywhere he goes. If you want to be a legitimate blogger, share experiences that are disappointing...not just those that are "amazing". It just isn't real. Be fair, and be critical. Not everything is "fantastic". Otherwise, you are not objective, you just are a contrived yes-man, and retain no legitimacy.

Sorry about the rudeness in New York. It’s due to the busy and hustling lifestyle. I would love to take you both. With 💕 from your greatest fan.
