What You Can Expect

New York City Gourmet Food Cart Walking Tour

Food Cart Tour

Sprinkled across Manhattan are some of the best dining experiences on the planet. No, not Michelin-starred restaurants – gourmet food carts! Over the past few years, food carts have gained popularity in New York City (among other cities across the country) and have grown from just a hot dog with ketchup to some of the best falafel you’ll find outside of Tel Aviv or the most flavorful curry this side of Mumbai.

Follow your guide through either the Financial District or Midtown in search of six different cuisines for you to try. The selections your guide chooses will change just as frequently as the locations of the carts, so you’ll be in for a surprise! Possible food carts include Trini-Paki Boys, Souvlaki Truck or Wafels & Dinges and you can expect food like falafel, Korean short ribs and Mexican chocolate brownies.

Lace up your walking shoes and bring your appetite!

Bryan was a great host on this tour, he is a lot of fun but very informative. The food from all the trucks was great, we would never normally eat from trucks like this on the street.

This tour and our guide Bryan was just great. Highly recommended. We tried food that we would not have been brave enough too and it was all great. We also learnt lots of the history, we had no idea about, very interesting, I won't spoilt it. I love doing the food tours, you learn so much and get to try the local cuisine, some better then restaurant quality, definitely the case here.
