King of Falafel & Shawarma
If there are two things New Yorkers love, it’s falafel and shawarma. You can get it all over this vast city, but true foodies know to get it from a King Cart usually surrounded by long line-ups. You can find the truck all over the city, particularly in Queens where it started popping up the most. Not only can you get amazing falafel and shawarma, you can also get full dinner plates with chicken, rice and more while you’re at it.
Breakfast cart bagels
New York City is known the world over for its bagels. You can go to nearly any cart in the city and get some authentic bagels and coffee. Found at nearly any subway exit during rush hour, you can also get any other kind of pastry you can imagine.
