There is so much more to New York Street Food than hot dogs and pretzels. The quality and variety of street food sold here has increased enormously in the past few years.

On the streets of New York, you can now get jerk chicken, dumplings, kati rolls, bulgogi, falafel, souvlaki, schnitzel, cous cous, cupcakes, waffles, fancy burgers, cheese steaks, Mexican and Korean tacos, and lots more.

With over 3,000 street vendors in New York and food stands on nearly every corner of midtown, it’s helpful to have someone knowledgeable to show you which vendors serve the best food.

New York Street Food has eaten over 400 street food meals in New York, plus countless desserts.  We would love to share some of our favorite New York Street Food vendors with you – and tell you about many more that you can try on your own!

Join us for a walking tour of some of the best street food vendors in midtown Manhattan, including current and past Vendy Award Winners and Finalists.  Of course, we will sample their wares along the way.

The tour is only available on Fridays from Memorial Day through Labor Day, so if you’re coming to NYC during the summer, you can still take the tour.
