    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.

    Mark, I am a big time fan of yours show. One day it would be my dream to be able to do that you do. I love to cook, watch cooking and eat. if you are back in NYC, please let me know. It would be a pleasure to go out and eat together. Also I will cook you some international cuisines like Argentinean BBQ, Thai, Indian or Mexican, you name it. Looking forward, take care.

  • Shariar's Universal Kitchen

    That hot sauce is really, really spicy and delicious. The white sauce!!! is unique. I have tried pretty much all the famous Halal food cart in NYC. This is truly the best Halal street food you will ever taste. No doubt. The secret is you have to mix the sauce and hot sauce together and eat. By the way they have various franchise restaurants all over the world including NYC to go sit and eat.

    Oh yeah... be prepared to smell like garlic all day, after eating at Katz's! LOL Hope you had NY cheesecake while you were there. Carnegie Deli used to be the best place for that back in the day. It closed...not sure if it ever reopened. I haven't been a New Yorker in a few years. I also no longer eat meat, so I wouldn't be eating any of this food if I went back. But it's fun to reminisce. One of my favorite NY restaurants is called Fish, down in the Village. Another secret favorite of mine used to be in a basement in Chinatown. It was called Vietnam. But it also closed.

    I came across your video today and truly enjoyed it (subscribed). As a native New Yorker Katz and the Halal Brothers are two NYC food land marks. Katz’s Deli is the oldest deli in NYC (133 years old). Nothing changes at Katz (which is a great thing), I’ve been and looking over the same pictures on the walls while eating the same amazing (Pastrami, Ruben or Corned Beef sandwich) since I was a kid in the 70s. I would also recommend (on your next visit) adding a Knish (square), the steak fries and a chocolate egg cream for the full Katz experience. Also check out Totonno’s in Coney Island, John’s in the West Village for some of the best NYC pizza.

    Looks great. I used to go to Carnegie Deli in midtown Manhattan one of their famous if not more famous competititors. Anybody who has not experienced a homeade Pastrami (or corned beef) prepased from scratch at a Jewish Deli has missed out on the king of sandwich meats. No storbought Pastrami can even come close in the least. If you buy GARBAGE like Boaqrs Head and utter the word Pastrami in the same sentence you are clueless. Boars head tastes like soap compred to this Pastrami. The best storebought Pastrami I have ever had is a Pastrami made by a company called Sy Ginsberg from Chicago. Sadly a FORMER favorite foodie store known as Southern Season decided to cut back their deli counter and fresh baked breads to a handful of crappy sandwiches and deleted Pastrami from sale alltogether. Southern Seasons lost a customer for life. Corporate asshats took away the only place in the region that had really high end meats and cheeses. They had some exquisite foods but now you might as well go to Walmart to get a sandwich.
