Street Eats, Midtown

Fruit Stand, Midtown
Photo by myself in Midtown, around 34th Street and Eighth Avenue.

Sidewalk vendors aren't limited to bagels, coffee and hot dogs. Fruit vendors provide a healthy alternative for breakfast.

Monday night, Mark and I watched a new episode of Anthony Bourdain's 'No Reservations'.

The topic? New York!

Tony explored the boroughs less spoken-about, namely, those not Manhattan: Staten Island, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx. Bourdain gave us his top picks, and they ranged from Sri Lankan to Korean to Soul Food.

Mark and I were impressed by a visit to a bustling food court in Flushing, Queens. There, Tony enjoyed a braised lamb dish with hand-pulled noodles. The food looked incredibly delicious.

We were also smitten with a restaurant located in a Hindu Temple, also in Queens. The food is described to be absolutely authentic, by the executive chef of Tabla, who was on the show.

Trays laden with dosas and curries were plopped down on the table. By the end of it, Mark and I were salivating, despite being full from dinner.

Here's a comprehensive restaurant list from the New York Post.
Here's the New York Daily News article about the show.
