    For about $9, you can get one of a dozen incredible sandwiches. No. 7 Sub knows what they're doing, as is evident from their General Tso’s Soft Boiled Fried Egg Sandwich. It is absolutely delicious, and worth the trip. Enjoy!

    Eddie Huang struck gold with this quick-bite hotspot. American-influenced Chinese dishes, 90s Hip-Hop playing inside, and a truly friendly staff make this a really comfortable and delicious place to stop. Stick with the Birdhaus Bao or the Chairman Bao!

    Don't let the fact that this is a generic looking food truck dissuade you. The Halal Guys have become a mobile institution in NYC, and deservedly so. You can't go wrong with a traditional combo over rice with white and red sauce. Quick and delicious!

    If you've never had Cambodian food, this is a good place to start. Num Pang sandwiches are truly incredible, and will convince you to come back. Get a pork belly sandwich and blood orange lemonade! You'll fall in love.

    The chicken pot pie is the go-to here, but don't underestimate the pastries! The ham and swiss, cranberry muffins, and free coffee refills truly elevate this place to a must-visit food spot!

    The chocolate-chip cookie here is gigantic, and thankfully so - you'll appreciate the size of this fluffy wonder. If you still have room, grab a flatbread pizza to go!

    Go for the salted chocolate-chip cookie, and make sure to have their glorious Brooklyn Barn Almond Milk. Dip the cookie in your milk and be on your way!

    This is an unparalleled, infamous, historic, flagship restaurant and a great primer for your time in New York. That you can sit at the table where Harry met Sally is just a bonus - the real treat is getting a pastrami on rye with brown mustard. Superb!

    If you're craving a meal made with love and flavors from down south, this is the place for you. Their fried chicken is brined in sweet tea, and comes with the familiar fluffy biscuit and fresh salad on the side. Get a real southern meal and take it to go!

    This little diner is like a time portal to the 50s: pink and turquoise uniforms on all servers, diner stools, fresh coffee, and unforgettable donuts. Get a whole wheat donut, and get a bacon, egg, and cheese on a croissant for a great on-the-go breakfast!
