Technically, The Kati Roll Company is a restaurant, but the Calcuttan casual fare served here certainly qualifies as street food because the interior is teeny tiny so most of the time you have no choice but to take away, and most importantly, kati rolls are the perfect on-the-go meal. Grab a mango lassi to sip alongside your kati roll and you’re all set for a perfect day in the Village. Greenwich Village. (thekatirollcompany.com/). $14.
There's nothing quite like New York street food, from an iconic hot dog or a cold Mister Softee cone. While we love these iconic street eats, the small-business owners running our treasured carts and NYC food trucks have faced increasing regulations from local authorities over the years. But whether it’s a crew of close-knit siblings serving up their favorite recipes from their mom’s Indian kitchen or a Nigerian immigrant sharing his native country’s classics, we here at Time Out will always support our unsung, roll-up-your-sleeves carryout cooks by eating like real New Yorkers—on the street.
Below, you'll find must-eat street food in New York.
