One thing I love most about America is its liberal and multicultural-blended atmosphere, especially in the city like NY, people from different parts of the world gathering at this “tiny” island to share their life and experiences. NYC never fails to surprise us. We can always find mysterious creates (in the subway) and bombs (sometimes), but also interesting people, funny things, and of course variety kinds of fabulous food here. When it comes to beautiful women, people from different cultures may view it in different angles, but in general people have similar standards in defining what is a beauty and what is not. This rule also applies to the taste of food that generally people tend to have same judgment on what is good food, though everyone may have his own preference. As a girl from China, a county which loves good food, comes to NYC, a city serves good food from all over the world, I started my discovery tour of great foods right away when I stepped foot on this land, haha.
Legend Bar & Restaurant
88 7th Ave (between 15th St & 16th St), New York, NY 10011
It’s my favorite Chinese restaurant in Manhattan where you can have the authentic Sichuan food. If you love spicy food this is a good place to go as most of other restaurants for Sichuan food at least the ones I’ve tried have been localized and made less spicy in some extent. It’s about $20-30 per person here and the beef tendon with spicy & peppery flavor is a must-try cold dish!
6 E 32nd St (between 5th Ave & Madison Ave) , New York, NY 10016
It’s place for Japanese buffet. The walk-in fee is around $30-40 per person, but they really offers a wide selection of foods to choose from, and since it’s the all-you-can-eat restaurant you can really find yourself some good stuffs that meet your taste, including fresh sushi, sashimi, crab leg, deep sea bass, etc. The place used to be called Todai but lately switched to IchiUmi, as maybe it sounds too much like “to die”? That’s just my guess, but what I’m sure is you won’t go there too often if you’re on a diet, or your figure is definitely going “to die”, lol.
It’s actually not a restaurant but a place for frozen yogurt, but I love it so much that I’ll buy one every time I walk pass a Pinkberry store. I usually don’t like sweet food and I like the fact that Pinkberry doesn’t make their products with too much sugar. Plus, a green tea frozen yogurt with honey and blueberries on top really taste terrific!
Above are the three restaurants on my “delicious and affordable” list, have you guys been there? If we have similar taste in food, think we can go there together next time! To find good places to eat is comparably easy, but good friends to eat with is not.
Welcome to shoot me the best restaurants on your list, foodies!
