Easily one of the most famous New York City restaurants, Katz’s Delicatessen is an institution that has been serving classic sandwiches since 1888.
The only reason you should eat at Katz’s Deli is for their pastrami. The pastrami is fall apart tender, and sensational, with a perfect ratio of fat to meat, and a crust of black pepper and secret spices. It’s everything you could want in pastrami.
You’ll be handed a little yellow ticket upon entering enter Katz’s Delicatessen. Take it and go to the bar-style counter and hand it to a cutter. The cutter will fix your sandwiches after taking your order. Many a time, your cutter will give you a sample of the pastrami as he’s making your sandwich. It’s expected that you tip your cutter. Then just take the sandwich, sit down at an empty table, and sink your teeth into a ridiculously thick meat sandwich!
The chicken is marinated in salt, pepper, Budweiser, and MSG.
Spicy Village is a tiny restaurant located in Chinatown in Manhattan that specializes in home-cooked style dishes from the central Henan province of China, in addition to some extra dishes that have roots in Xinjiang – the Spicy Big Tray Chicken being one of them.
If you’re a spicy food fan, but love cumin, food can hardly get any better than the Spicy Big Tray Chicken. The chicken is deep fried in a unique concoction (that includes beer), then braised in a spicy chili, and cumin, and Sichuan pepper soup. Order it with hand-pulled noodles, which will go perfectly with the dish, but rice will be equally as good.
