On this tour we will explore a few of the bizarre foods that the East Village has to offer, some of which have been featured on Andrew Zimmerman’s Bizarre Foods America.
If you are a food lover that seeks things out of the ordinary, then this tour is for you. Just make sure to arrive hungry!
Our first stop has it all...razor Clams, duck Intestines, thousand year eggs, etc, it all is good at this Cantonese location. Here you will be able to order a dish of your choice up to $10 in value.
For our second stop we will try Filipino comfort food at it's finest, an exotic excursion with a soft landing, a chance to discover an unsung cuisine. Discover a menu filled with all sorts of unique and bizarre dishes. Here everyone will get to try a Tacilog (homemade porkbelly bacon, 7-up cured pork, sunny side farm egg, tomato, cucumber, onion, wansoy relish, and garlic rice).
We will try tea eggs, and milk teas at our third stop, a typical Chinese savory food commonly sold as a snack, in which a pre-boiled egg is cracked and then boiled again in tea, sauce and/or spices.
At our last location we go to a place that is a common stop amongst NYC’s famous cabbies. Here we will try tostadas with braised pig’s ears.
I am a third generation Manhattanite. Yes my Grandfather was born here. He actually ran a company that built most of Manhattan, and has photos of the city sixty years ago all over his house. He has taught me about all of the historic spots in the city, and living in the village for the last six years I have done alot of food exploration of my own. I try to avoid crowds so I know about many of the hidden gems that the city has to offer. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
