Full description
Discover the ever-evolving food carts of New York on a 2-hour walking tour of Midtown Manhattan, and explore New York through its street food scene. Step into an exciting world of diverse foods and food heroes, and hear stories about the past, present and future of this fast-changing culture. Enjoy 6 generous tastings of gourmet dishes along the way.

Meet your guide by the Bank of America Tower on the Avenue of the Americas (6th Avenue). Then, discover the city beyond its famous hot dog and pretzel stands. Sample an international buffet of culinary delights as you watch the people that manage to cram a full kitchen into an improbably small cart.

Listen to stories told by the proprietors, from struggling immigrants to culinary school drop-outs and former 4-star restaurant chefs. Along the way, learn the history of the industry and the challenges of running a feverishly demanding, business. Taste delectable dishes crafted at the curbside kitchens.
