NYC, the city of dreams many call it, is home to some of the most famous names in the media. NYC is known for many amazing things, one of them being phenomenal cuisine!  Taking you on a journey of some of the best hidden gems the big apple has to offer.

1.) Momo Sushi Shack, situated in East Williamsburg. Now for those of you who appreciate fine Japanese cuisine along with a variety of delicious vegan options this is the place for you. Momo sushi shack is located at 43 Bogart St. Brooklyn, NY 11206 on the corner of Moore St. and Bogart St. next to the ever popular Roberta’s. The entrance is that of an army camouflage tent that would lead you to believe it’s closed down. You literally almost pass it by without a second thought. Suddenly, out of the corner of your eye you glimpse the chalk board written sign which reads the restaurant’s name. Once you step inside the tent like entrance and pull open that heavy wooden door you are instantly transported to a land of communal tables, indie tunes, and attentive service. The restaurant is a renovated garage with simple wood tables, floors and walls.

Specials of the day vary offering delicacies such as wagyu steak with roasted or sautéed veggies and potato, to an assorted platter of tempura vegetables. Sushi rolls are anywhere from $5 to $15 with a good variety to choose from. Try a signature Sushi Bomb. Not sure which you want? Order the party bomb for $19 you will get a pleasant assortment of variety. If you’re a carnivore try the Karage. Karage is a Japanese style fried chicken, tender dark meat seasoned to perfection golden fried and served with a delightful marinade that is a blend of orange, garlic, soy sauce and sake,$9 for an appetizer serving! If you prefer to eat light try the tofu salad which includes avocado, tomato and basil for $8 or the momo salad which includes seasonal vegetables, katafi and fried mushrooms served on a bed of greens tossed with Momo’s signature salad dressing for $10.
