New York City is a true foodie’s paradise. It’s the twists on timeless favorites that really sets this city apart from the rest. Here are 10 of our favorite unusual dishes in NYC.
Oddfellows Ice Cream Co. is your classic, old-school ice cream shop with a twist. The chorizo caramel swirl is just one of the flavors. The flavors range from classic and expected, like sprinkles or s’mores, to the crazy, like the chorizo caramel swirl and burnt honey rosemary. The flavors change every day, but the chorizo caramel swirl is a favorite. This pork sausage-flavored ice cream is perfectly sweet and savory, and it’s made with real chorizo. Like all of the Oddfellow ice creams, it’s creamy and custardy with unexpectedly subtle flavors. If you’re unsure about committing to one flavor, they offer generous sample tastings, so you can cover all the bases.
Only in New York could you find a restaurant dedicated only to chicken fingers, and Sticky’s Finger Joint is that place. Plus, they have salted caramel chicken fingers. These babies are brined in buttermilk, coated in crunchy and salty crushed pretzel bits, deep-fried and smothered in salted caramel. If all that isn’t enough, they’re garnished with pretzel sticks and pretzel glitter. Yep. Pretzel glitter. They’re as good, or maybe even way, way better, than they sound. They’re the perfect blend of salty, sweet, and crunchy.
