Unmissable Food in NY?

  • t


I love food like the rest of you guys but do not have
too much money. Am visiting NY next month for a week.
Wonder if anybody can give me a list (preferably with
the street number) of food that I must not miss in New
York for under $ 20 a person. I love all kinds of
Asian, Italian and spicy food.

Thank you

  1. Toru, Welcome to NYC!

    NYC has lots of good cheap ethnic places, too many to
    start recounting here. I think you will need to use
    the Chowhound search engine.

    Good luck!
