East Village Eats

I am continuing my little videos about NYC - this one takes place in the East Village.

I went on a Food Tour of NY adventure through the East Village which is so amazingly eclectic.

If you have trouble viewing the video here, head to my You Tube channel which will give you a faster download time!!

The food in the East Village was amazing.

We had bubble tea at Saints Alp Teahouse (an import from Hong Kong), rice rolls from Sunrise Market (an amazing Japanese grocery store that sells everything from unagi to pottery), amazing fries from Pommes Frites which included dips like mango chutney and parmesan peppercorn, takayaki (octopus balls) from Otafuku an authentic Japanese street meat vendor (hmmm, except for the Mexican music perhaps), delicious and cheap falafels from Mamouns, and a perfect ending with Italian cookies and cannoli from Veniero's Pastry, an Italian bakery serving the East Village for nearly 100 years!

Candy is the owner and operator of Food Tours NY, and she is a great and very sweet guide.  When in New York, you should take a food tour not only to see a neighborhood but to taste it as well.  For $40, they are GREAT values!
