Manhattan has a very rich variety of cuisine from all over the world so you can spend every day by trying different restaurants and not get bored. From traditional American restaurants to European and Asian cuisine, takeaways to fine dining. If you visiting New York , don’t just grab anything when you are hungry. It would be a sin to omit this opportunity to try some fancy restaurant in one of the greatest cities in the world. Just make an effort and choose a place where can you enjoy not just for the atmosphere but also the taste of the delicious food. So don’t stick with the “classic style” such as MC Donald, Starbucks, Subway or Apple Jack which is at every corner. but experiment. Let me inspire you by my restaurant tips and choose your style you like.

Momosan – Japanese restaurant

The Momosan offers authentic Japanese cuisine for a reasonable price. I was making a research about Japanese restaurants in NYC and this one seemed like a great choice for price and quality so I decided to try it. The interior looks very stylish, their menu presents variety of noodles, sushi, and Japanese wines or cocktails. I love Japanese wines, they are nice and sweet. My meal choice was Momosan Ramen. Some tip for you – it looks like a soup but it is not! 🙂 The noodles are soaked in a special “sauce” which is fatty and it creates the authentic flavour for the meal. So just dip the noodles into the sauce and enjoy the taste.

Ellen's Stardust

I would say that Ellen’s Stardust is a traditional restaurant in an American style. It is designed in Retro style  with singing waitresses.  All waitresses are professionals from Musical school.. While you will be eating, they will sing and walk on the table. If you visiting this place for a breakfast have a sweet cake, cheese cake, cookies with an ice cream or a milkshake. Be careful though – it is really a high caloric bomb!  If you are fan of savoury breakfast, you can get eggs and bacon, omelette or a sandwich. 

For dinner option , select from burgers and chips, pork chops, chicken or classic Mac and cheese. The food wasn’t exactly my style but I was very curious about the atmosphere and I think it is cool to check it out. 🙂 If you go in the evening prepare for a very long queue outside.
