Pastrami in New York City is all about being New Yorker. Whether it is Pastrami on rye or bagel, you are likely to find it of the finest quality. And when there comes a name of quality, there is no one to match Katz’s Delicatessen. A Jewish family named Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal played a big role in the popularity of it in New York. Regardless of the popularity of their brand, they have never let their customers down when it comes to quality.

For that sake, coffee happens to be the most favorite drink across the globe. You would hardly find a person who would not be a devotee of coffee. And it is like a traditional drink in NYC as well. There are no restrictions as long you crave a coffee in NYC but staring your tour, try to get your hands on the city’s best latte, Abraço in the East Village.

Coffee is not merely a drink it’s a vibe and a mood. You may have it wherever and whenever you feel like having it regardless of from here to buy.  New York would never let you down in your craving for coffee.

  • Meat with rice:

Meat with rice is another popular dish in NYC. It can get from sidewalk carts across the city. But if you are looking for the specialty, let The Halal Guys serve you. Apart from meat with rice, which makes them so popular is the additional sauces they provide such as famous white and hot sauces which makes them so special.

The Bottom line:

In the end, I would like to say, when in New York, eat as the New Yorkers do.
