New York is famous for its takeaway-friendly snacks, but its on-the-go offerings extend way beyond hot dogs and pizza by the slice. Delve into the city’s street food culture on this tour of Midtown, sampling the goods churned out by immigrant-owned eateries on wheels and chef-run food carts alike.

Meet your friendly, food-loving guide and hit the pavement, walking between curbside food carts throughout bustling Midtown Manhattan. As you stroll, learn about the history of the food cart industry and hear about the unexpected – and sometimes dramatic – challenges that face the city’s mobile kitchens.

The menu and stops vary with every tour, but there’s one thing you can be certain of – every tasting on this tour is delicious. Tuck into 6 generously sized samples of flavourful internationally inspired cuisine. Depending on the day, you might try crisp falafel, tender roast lamb, sweet and spicy chicken with rice and tamarind sauce, savoury Korean thin ribs or delectable Belgian waffles, made from dough and caramelised beet sugar and drizzled with a cookie-based spread.
