Phils Steaks – NYC – Cheesesteak wit wiz

Oh my Gawd, I was just hitting food truck after food truck. I had headed down on the red line just to hit up Union Square to see if the traders at the regular farmers food market were still there. On my way from the station walking along 14th St I bumped into Phils Steaks. With a…

Real Good Truck – NYC

I am a total sucker for a food truck and even if I have just eaten I can’t pass one by, even if I just have a taste. 20 minutes earlier I was walking out from the Chelsea Market with my meat pie from “Tuck Shop” and I was heading over to Myers of Keswick…

Tuck Shop ‘the great aussie bite’ NYC

I love a good meat pie and I had read about this place on NFT (Not For Tourists) NYC so I really had to head over here for a pie. I had checked it out over the holiday season but I was on my way then to get Fish and Chips from ‘A Salt and…

Hidden away amongst the stalls selling beads, fancy jewellery, and scented candles, Charles Wekselbaum stood with his small board of little charcuterie treats. Other market browsers passed him by, but I was straight in there. There were some…

Nathan’s Hot Dogs at Coney Island

If you like the occasional hot dog then no trip to New York woud be complete without a trip to the mecca of Nathan’s original hot dogs in Brooklyn at Coney Island  on the corner of  Surf and Stillwell Avenue opposite the Coney Island Subway stop. It is not just the history of the place that has…

“A Salt and Battery”

For an expat Englishman there is a constant search for good fish and chips, not just abroad but in the UK also.  Some surveys will claim that Curry is the number one takeaway in the UK these days, but ignore that it is Fish and Chips, and that is what we seek and crave when overseas….

Excellent Dumpling House

OK so it is a bit of a stretch on the El Stop Food Hunt project, but if one accepts that both O’Hare and Midway are stops on the elevated railway then if I fly from there to somewhere else, such as say New York I am still eating along the el (yes big stretch,…
