    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.

    If you *really* have watched Mark eat, you know when he doesn't think something is too good. Of course, when he does the 45 degree head thing, it's awesome, but *anything* else isn't a rave or may not even be a "like." When he says mmm, or smiles and says oh that's very good, etc., it's his way of saying it's ok. Of course, I'd like to see more of what Ying has to say, too.

    I noticed that NYC was kinda expensive, so you only visited a very few places to eat and stretching the halal shoot made it so? Since in your other videos you visit many places. Welcome to my nightmare with NYC prices!

    I recently did the same food tour Mark did. I've come to the conclusion that Mark tilts his head and widely opens his eyes with that facial expression to every food he tastes. Kratz Deli Pastrami sandwhiches are good, I even went there twice. They are good, but not to his expectations. Halal bros street food is nothing to rave about I have had better in the middle east.

    I've seen a few of these videos and I really enjoy them but there's 2 things I'm still trying to figure out. 1st How is he still skinny? 2nd Does his jaw dislocate, cause the size of those sandwiches, man. Then again, if I paid that much for a sandwich I'd probably be taking huge bites too. Heh heh Thanks you for taking us with you Mark. 🤙
