Eat Street Food in NYC's Most Delicious Neighborhood
We will be exploring the world via street food in the most diverse and delicious area in NYC just 15-20 minutes from Midtown Manhattan. We will be eating a lot, so come with an appetite! Consider this tour as lunch or dinner. In this neighborhood of Queens, carts and trucks come out with some of the most delicious food to be had in NYC. Many places we visit are hole in the wall, hidden gems that aren't easily noticed if you were to walk through the neighborhood on your own. These are places that we frequent and where we eat often and want to share them with you! We'll also share more information about the neighborhood, vendors and cuisines so you can learn more along with getting a great meal. Often, the vendors will change by day, so each tour may be unique. Our journey may take you from Tibet to Mexico and more in between. You will have the opportunity to learn more about New York City from a native's perspective and how it has changed over the years. Itineraries can be tweaked for dietary restrictions. Come with an open mind, comfortable shoes, empty stomach and we'll take care of the rest! This is our passion and we like our guests to feel like friends. Other things to note: This tour is not ideal for guests with a gluten or peanut allergy, or if you are not comfortable walking two miles outdoors with mostly no seating or tables. Bathroom access is limited.

I invite you to P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in Queens. Contemporary art is multi-variant, and our tour will be the same – you will have the opportunity to choose the direction of their journey into the world of “beautiful today”.
