If you only had 15 minutes?

If you only had 15 minutes to get something to eat in Manhattan, Where would it be ? What would it be? And why?

  1. for me, it'd be dumplings at one of many chinatown eateries. one buck, four-five dumplings. instant service. the place on mosco street also offers a nice scallion pancake and easy access to columbus park for a pleasant al fresco spot to eat up.

    1. When I was a NYC Teaching Fellow in Brooklyn I never had time and it was always a street cart. Fast and cheap. No decent pizza nearby so I couldn't grab a slice.

      1. I'd have a falafel at Alfanoose, or an uni panini (sic) at El Quino Pino, or chile rellonos at Zaragoza (215 Ave A).

        1. Pork & shrimp dumplings @ Mantao
          Tacos from Tehuitzingo
          Chile relleno burrito from Tulcingo del Valle
          As many of those brown butter sandwich cookies I could get my hands on from "The Treats Truck"

          1. I'd feast on pommes frites drenched in garlic aoili while on my way to vanessa's for dumplings ( 5 months ago i would have said the chicken mushroom ones, but they changed the recipe so I will go with the pork and cabbage).
