New York's Best Eats

New York is well-known for a number of things, skyscrapers, it's charismatic locals and it's busy streets being just a few. The city that never sleeps is seldom promoted for it's dining options though, from simple street food to stunning restaurants, New York City has plenty to tantalise taste buds.

We'll make a fairly leisurely start and head to Hotel Chantelle for a spot of brunch after a nice, long lay-in. Winner of the OpenTable Diner's Choice award, the hotel offers a rather distinct selection of sweet and savoury brunches that will set you up for a delightful day in the city. Order the spectacular breakfast sausage lollipops for starters, which may sound odd but these skewered pancake crusted link sausages are a strong example of why sweet and savoury combinations are a marvel and with the added bonus of maple dip, your mouth with already be watering.

Wash these down with one (or a few) cocktails costing just 92 cents (yes, really!) before treating yourself to a strong selection of mains. Waffles, steak, sandwiches and burgers all tempt you, though the star of the show would probably be the breakfast pizza, which sounds almost too good to be true. Thin crust pizza is topped with scrambled egg, cheese, chives, bacon and spicy ketchup, combining for possibly the most indulgent of all brunch options anywhere.

New York's street food choices are never in short supply, with hot dog carts being in good company and good competition for hungry New Yorkers bucks. One flourishing street food vendor is Solber Pupusas, having grown and built on their initial success in 1999. Serving Salvadorian corn tortillas stuffed with a range of ingredients, the menu draws on the influences of co-owner Reina's native country of El Salvador.

Then menu consists of a selection of colourful platters, usually served with tomato sauce, sour cream and jalapeno peppers. Your main choice will be between a pupasa and a tamale though. Pupasas are the aforementioned stuffed tortillas, typically stuffed with cheese, cooked pork meat and refried beans. Tamales on the other hand are a dish steamed in a leaf wrapper (which is then discarded) and are often filled with similar ingredients to the pupasa. 

Famed for it's unrivalled selection of meats, salamis and Jewish specialities, Katz's Delicatessen is known across America as a place to get one heck of a sandwich. The most famous of these is by far and away their corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, piled high with 1lb of your choice of meat, a smothering of mustard and two slices of seedless rye bread somehow contain this meaty extravaganza.

On top of this, you'll find traditional Jewish food on the menu, a tip of the hat to the Jewish community in NYC. Again, the deli makes the most of it's mouth-watering meats to develop a stunning matzoh ball soup, which is essentially dumpling served in a meaty soup. Also on offer are knishes (potato-stuffed rounds of crispy dough), babka (hand-baked coffee cake, swirled with chocolate of cinnamon) and even sliced tongue for that authentic Jewish feel.
