Five more reasons to arrive hungry in New York

Continue reading below

For a quick trip down under by way of Chelsea Market (Chelsea), visit the Tuck Shop (www.tuckshopnyc.com) for a handmade Australian meat pie (with antibiotic-free meat). Of the many Asian-fusion restaurants, there are some standouts, like Laut in Union Square (www.lautnyc.com), where Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand meet on a plate (try the Malaysian curries); and Tangra Masala (www.tangrafusionnyc.com), an Indo-Chinese hybrid in Sunnyside, Queens, where you can get a wonderful fish dish with spicy garlic sauce, and chicken dry rubbed with Chinese herbs and Indian spices. And we can’t leave out Tanoreen (www.tanoreen.com), a Brooklyn favorite for Middle Eastern (Lebanese- and
Syrian-influenced) cuisine. You won’t go wrong with the baby eggplant stuffed with ground lamb in lemon-garlic sauce. For dessert, pass on the fancy cupcake shops and head directly to Uncle Boon’s (www.uncleboons.com), a Thai rotisserie in Nolita, where the one and only dessert is a coconut ice cream sundae topped with candied peanuts and toasted coconut. This, alone, is reason to go to New York.
