What’s a “CRONUT?”
Created by renowned French pastry chef Dominique Ansel, the cronut, a combination of a donut and croissant, has captured the hearts of New Yorkers and pastry aficionados alike. Pastry chefs from other countries have tried to imitate the cronut, but this flaky, delicious pastry is best enjoyed at its birthplace–the Dominique Ansel Bakery located in Greenwich Village. Just be prepared to wait up to an hour. The lines may be long, but the cronut is well worth the wait. The pastry shop opens at 8am, and by noon, almost 350 cronuts have been sold every day.
Hamburgers are an American classic. Whether you’re an adventurous eater or you prefer to eat something familiar, hamburgers are a delicious food that everyone can agree on. In New York, there are restaurants where you can find the best hamburgers in the world. If you’re looking to satisfy your burger cravings, here are a few places where you can indulge:
- Founded in Madison Square Garden, Shake Shack began as a hot dog stand. But they don’t just sell hot dogs; they offer plenty of delicious and popular meals that are popular with locals and visitors alike. In 2004, Shake Shack moved to a kiosk in the park where they perfected their famous burgers. And there’s no better place to experience this great burger than its place of origin!
- If you like custom burgers, Burger Joint is the place to go. Before you go into the restaurant, the staff will give you a piece of paper where you can write down how you want your burger prepared–whether you want your burger medium rare or well done, which toppings you want, if you want fries, and what kind of drink you want. The restaurant’s decor is a bit old-fashioned, and although there are few tables, service is always quick so you’ll never have to wait long.
Hot dogs are a classic throughout the United States because they’re easy to eat on the go, and they’re delicious at almost any time of the day. In New York, locals love to eat hot dogs all the time. Toppings range from cabbage to onion to egg to pineapple; you can have anything you want! Choose from the best buns and enjoy the best hot dog in the United States. If you’re ready to try a delicious hot dog, head to Gray’s Papaya which is known as one of the best places to eat hot dogs. You can find it near the Lincoln Center and Central Park.
Another classic New York food that you can find at any time of the day is a bagel. Created by Ukrainian immigrants who came to New York over 100 years ago, the bagel is almost like a sandwich that’s prepared with two pieces of circular bread with a hole in the middle. Bagels can be eaten plain, with cream cheese, or toasted, and there are more flavors both sweet and savory than there are blocks in Manhattan. The most popular way of eating a bagel in New York is with cream cheese and lox, a type of smoked, cured salmon. If you’re looking to try the best bagels in all of New York City, head over to Black Seed where you can try every flavor that you can dream of.
There are so many different ways to experience the places that you visit, and one of the best ways is by eating local food. Are you ready to head to the Big Apple and experience its flavors?
