I'll take the OP to Cocoron to eat the best soba noodles I've ever had while I talk to the waiters in Japanese about their hometowns since I've been there, twice, this year.

boiiiiiiii I'll be sad when the free flights are gone

I'll be in Tokyo in December and January though. Yolo!

Have you been to Queens? Saying there is not good food in the outer boroughs is a delusional mindset at best, and an offensive viewpoint at worst! Jackson Heights has some of the best food in the city.

For people on a budget NYC has a ratio of 99 bad and mediocre eateries to every 1 good one.

Its not that great here. I takes half your salary trying to find the best spots.

The food in NYC is not what it used to be. Sorry to express my disappointment?

You guys are right we eat good in Hawaii. Lots of fresh caught sea foods. Fresh picked fruits.

Actually, it's the opposite. NYC is one of the few global cities where you can eat good food for cheap. You are not looking hard enough.

If you can't stand the noise, the Dominicans, the area you live, the food, the women...then why are you in NYC? Didn't you move by choice?

You've never been to NYC though. So you'd never know.

One can get great food in NYC. But like everywhere else one can also find very bad food here.

I was pissed when starting this topic. I got sick a few times from food.

Here is my logic about why most of the food in this city does suck.

bodegas (everything is unhealthy)
food trucks (everything is unhealthy, and unsanitary)
IMO, food trucks should be abolished in NYC
convenient stores (everything is unhealthy)
any places that is a "deli" (everything is unhealthy or just not good quality)
all the starbucks (everything is unhealthy)
any kind of immigrant food mobiles or trucks (unsanitary)
it is just the entire American food system that is gross
all the Fast Food places are like eating plastic foods and everything is bad for you
donuts shops

What I just listed above is about 75% of all the food we immediately see in NYC

Then the sad part is that in the past decade a huge amount of the old school family owned business were put out of business due to gentrification

We should be pissed off about all these things.

I can go on for a long time in more detail.
