New York has food at every price range. You can eat at a mid-range, sit-down restaurant for $15-$25 depending on if you get a drink. Here are my recommended places to eat in NYC.

    Zabb Elee has easily the best Isaan Thai food in Manhattan. There’s also one in Queens on 71-28 Roosevelt Avenue.

    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).

    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.

    Fresh sushi, big cuts, perfect rice. It’s considered one of the best sushi bars in the city, and I would certainly agree. The place is small and gets packed quickly. Come for an early dinner.

    Tartine offers some of the best French bistro food in the city. They have great homemade berry tarts and meringues.

    The best Thai restaurant in New York. As someone who has lived in Thailand, I have very high standards and this exceeds them all. If you only eat at one Thai place, make it this place.

    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).

    A great Vietnamese place located near my apartment, the pho here rocks my world. The portions are huge, and the prices are small. Their $10 lunch special offers the best value.

    A mac and cheese shop that takes the traditional dish and makes it even better. It’s heavenly, cheesy goodness. Their four-cheese mac and their cheeseburger mac are my two favorites.

    This is my favorite Korean BBQ place in the city.

    Serving Bombay-style street food, this is some really good Indian food. I couldn’t get enough of it. The plates are sharable, and you get rice and bread too. Try the fish tikka. It’s delicious.
