​PEANUT BUTTER & CO.
- 7 / 10
- Stumbled upon this place and tried PB cookie and brownie- nothing special

THE MEATBALL SHOP
​- 9 / 10
- Recommended by locals in Brooklyn- worth the trip
- Meatball Hogie (awesome); spicy pork meatball in spicy sauce- all good. Super tender meat yet has texture. Dessert can be skipped- nothing special

MILK BAR MOMOFUKU
​- 8 / 10
- Saw this name pop up multiple times. Made the trip to Brooklyn & also visited store in Manhattan
- Tried multiple things- Blueberry/miso shake(really grows on you... now kinda missing it...); ALL the cookies, good but PB was awesome; Pork bun, good but not as amazing as people made it sound; pretzel milk- ok. Salmon bagel thing- awesome! Crack pie- too sweet.

JOE'S PIZZA
- 7.5 / 10
​- Recommended by a foodie as typical NYC pie
- I had it cold after night out, a friend brought it from store to our hotel. Good pie but thought Ray's was better.​

HALAL GUYS ​53rd & 6th
​- 8 / 10
- Told a must find by a SF foodie. BUT she said good luck, just look around 6th ave for a cart with a line up = not hard to find...
- Had the Chicken w rice. Perfect street food.... just make sure you get extra creamy yogurt type sauce to dump on the chicken and rice. So good

SHANGHAI DUMPLING
​- 7.5 / 10
- Was told to check out, a few around town.
- Was ok, nothing special, if you see it and need food, it is ok. Definitely way better dumplings (xiao long bao) in Vancouver.

​UMAMI BURGER
- 9 / 10
- Had to find this... been to LA location, then Miami location- HANDS DOWN best burger under $15, in fact will beat most burgers PERIOD.
- Stuck with my usual - The Original. Simple, amazing..... sampled the Truffle, awesome, Monte Cristo special- was ok.
- Only complain.... it should be 10 / 10 (when I had it in LA and Miami) this medium rare was more of a medium to me.... AND waitress forgot to tell me their special was a 5 spice duck burger (so disappointed and way too full to eat a second burger, AND it was hours before my flight home...)

​LE PARKER MERIDIEN - BURGER JOINT
​- 8 / 10
- simple basic burger- had it last time I was in NYC 2003. Same as before, good staple, med rare was well cooked, nothing fancy.
