About This Experience

General Information hide

New York City's mobile food carts have moved from street meat to more haute cuisine, offering delicacies such as kati rolls, Jamaican jerk chicken and even tasty deserts. This two-hour guided New York Food Tour will highlight the best of the new Food Cart bunch.

You and your guest will enjoy a strolling lunch around Midtown or Downtown Manhattan Financial District where you will sample a menu of offerings and hear of the unique stories of the proprietors--from struggling immigrants to culinary school drop-outs, to former 4-star restaurant chefs. Along the way, your Guide will discuss the history of the challenges of running these demanding, yet delicious small businesses.

Mouth-watering bites on the tour range from falafel and vegetables, chicken and rice, Korean short ribs, waffles with toppings, schnitzel, kati rolls, jerk or stewed chicken, to Mexican chocolate brownies! So whether you are looking for fun things to do in New York, a unique gift or a guide to the perfect New York City lunch, this 5 Star Rated NYC Food Cart Tour is the perfect experience gift!
