New York City Food Cart Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    With the fast pace of life in New York City, food carts are a popular option for those who want a quick and delicious meal on the go. Manhattan’s street food scene has evolved from basic hot dog and pretzel pushers to seriously gourmet to-go offerings scattered throughout town. Choose from a walking tour of Midtown Manhattan or the Financial District, then meet your friendly foodie guide for a 2-hour exploration of these curbside kitchens.
    Stop at six different carts to sample delicious multicultural and fusion dishes. Because the mobile food trucks change locations from day to day, the exact stops will vary. Expect globally inspired offerings like Middle Eastern falafel, Korean short ribs, Pakistani curry, Greek souvlaki, Belgian waffles, and Mexican chocolate brownies. 
    Learn about the history of mobile dining as you walk from cart to cart, and see parts of the city you may otherwise have overlooked. Bring your sense of adventure and your appetite for a tasty and memorable afternoon. A percentage of all sales from this tour support the Street Vendor Project, an association that provides assistance to street vendors.
