Crossing the Queensboro Bridge into Manhattan.



I’m getting ready to say goodbye to New York for the summer (and hallo to a series of taxi adventures in Berlin). This means it’s high time to refresh my list of Gotham’s best cabbie-recommended dishes – and add a few finds from the driver’s seat. Feel free to check out last September’s list here. (Note: the chicken momos at Hanami are no more, as Hanami restaurant in Sunnyside is no more. May those gorgeous dumplings rest in peace.)

Saying ciao for now also means I forced the long-suffering Daniel at my taxi garage to try the one thing I’ve found in the Big Apple that inspires a feeling that could be compared to Argentine empanada joy. Even though it happens to be from a different hemisphere. You’ll never guess where these little pies come from – Daniel couldn’t.

In the meantime, if you need an appetizer, and if you plan on riding in a New York cab at any point and want to make like a local, here’s a piece I wrote up for The Travel Channel’s World Hum website that will give you some pointers on how to taxi like a New Yorker. (Believe it or not, there’s an art to it).
