    Best Hot Dog/pizza/chinese In Manhattan

    I am going to be in Manhattan next week from Thurs.-Sun. The following are my must eats:

    1) Hot Dog;
    2) Pizza;
    3) Chinese in China Town; and
    4) Middle Eastern.

    I'd appreciate recommendations.
    I won't object if the place is run by a Penningtologist.

    Chinese... too many different cuisines in Chinatown, but a great place is Joe's Shanghai or Joe's Ginger... try their Soup Dumplings and Crab Soup Dumplings. Best I've ever had anywhere.

    My personal favorite slice is Sal and Carmine's on 101st and B'way. If you really dig pizza, its worth the trip.

    If you are around Columbus Circle, Mariella's is delicious as well. If you're in the East Village, Pete's a Place (on 14th bet A & B) has a great slice as does Nino's on 6th (although you usually won't be able to tell because its one of those 3am drunk off your ass slices).

    Best falafel is at Cafe Azuri on 51st and 10th. For a great shwarma, go to Mamouns on MacDougal.

    If you end up looking for a Bagel as well, my personal favorite (in Manhattan)is David's on 14th and first (better than Essa, Murray's or H&H IMHO)....best in all of NYC is Bergen Bagels in Brooklyn

    Spumoni Gardens is WAY overrated... Their pizza SUCKS. It annoys me so much when everyone gets a hard on to go there.

    As for the others... Mirage Diner in brooklyn makes great burgers. Way to many chinese food places to pinpoint one. Indian passage in Bay Ridge has amazing food if you just keep an open mind

    Gray's Papaya on 6th Ave, 9th St >>>> 72nd and Broadway

    Ray's (any location) is no good. Bleecker St. >>>> Ray's on 6th

    2) Pizza; Pizza Booth on Bleeker b/t Thompson and Sullivan, ****hole with best pizza ever
    3) Chinese in China Town; and I usually just grab Chinese in my neighborhood, as far as China town I'd just walk down Mott St from Soho to Canal St and south.
    4) Middle Eastern. My wife doesn't like this so I can't go

    I'd appreciate recommendations.

    Have fun.

    Those are good for sure, they have them all over the city so don't feel like you have to go to the upper west side for a hotdog.

    Ray's is out of control....I haven't been there since I was a kid, but all I can remember is standing at the wall/counter and eating the biggest and BEST slice of pizza ever!

    And I may be in the minority, but theres nothing better than a "dirty water dog" with a little kraut and mustard from a Sabrett cart.

    IMO, that place is overrated. It's really hit or miss.

    Chinese: I'd go either to one of the many great places in Chinatown or just go to Congee Village on the Lower East Side. You can definitely never go wrong with Congee.

    Pizza: Tough call here. The problem is the best pizza places are in Staten Island and/or Brooklyn. A new place called Artichoke just opened up and it's pretty damn good. Not the best in Manhattan though. It's probably not worth the hour long subway ride and then the hour long wait for your pizza, but the best pizza in the world is Difara's which is in Brooklyn. From the outside it looks like a normal pizza place, but as soon as you see Mr. De Marco, you will see it is not normal. I do know that he recently raised his prices though, but it's worth going to. Here's a great youtube of it:

    Wow...There used to be a Jamaican food place on 72nd, right aroound the corner. Sweet potato pies, I can't remember what else. I'd get my workout at the Jack LaLanes on BWay and 74th, then a Grays and a sweet potato pie.

    Luzzo's pizza is my favorite by far (1st avenue between 12th and 13th)..not as well known as Grimaldi's and Lombardi's (which are tied for my 2nd favorite), but also a lot less crowded. DELICIOUS.
