My favorite sushi place in the city, this little restaurant is easily missed. I visit here too often—so often they gave me cake on my birthday and call me up when they have special orders. Don’t miss the uni or the tuna.
Living in Thailand ruined me for Thai food. It’s never as good outside the country as it was while I was there. Wan Dee is the closest thing I’ve found to authentic Thai food (and it’s no surprise I found out about it from some local Thai friends).
Dumpling Restaurant in New York, NY, United States
I found out it’s actually quite famous. After eating their dumplings, it’s easy to see why. They were delicious. The pork dumplings had intense flavor to them, and at 10 dumplings for $2, the price is just right.
A must-visit with all-around delicious burgers, fries, and, of course, milkshakes. The original location in Madison Square Park usually has a long line, so be prepared to wait (though you can look at the Shakecam on their website).
