New Yorker (American Street Food) – Manchester
Fun food that involves creating and personalising your own mains or desserts.
Located in the heart of Manchester, it’s within easy access to all types of transport located only a few minutes away.
With a capacity of around 30, the New Yorker is an American Street Food underground journey, which transports you to a different kind of set up.
Its wooden and rustic interior, with brick wall droppings, allows this place to really capture the attention.
No fancy mocktails or bartender-made drinks here; just your standard fizzy drinks alongside a few others.
But there’s nothing to complain about when you’ve got a whole variety of shakes to choose from, as well as the famous ‘Snapple’ juices.
Them bottles we’re just not to be missed. And so we started off with the Kiwi & Strawberry flavour – a sweet berry flavoured drink, quite light and fresh, with a kick of Kiwi thereafter.
As for the Apple flavour, then this was like taking that first bite into a fresh, crunchy cold, juicy red apple – refreshingly strong, yet sweet. Perfect as a side drink.
Maybe a wider choice of drinks including mocktails would be a nice addition to the dine.
This Hershey’s Cooke N Cream was flavorful and creamy.
However, Hershey’s is too rich in comparison to the shake itself. A white chocolate indulgence is probably how this ought to be best described.
NOTE: Burgers can be doubled or trippled up for an extra £1.50, while a meal will cost an additional £2.49 and include NY fries and a soft drink.
Now the fun part! After a bit of time deciding, we finally managed to pick what seemed to be the best things on the menu.
We started off with one of their top recommended burgers – the ‘Badman Burger’, which was tender, moist and full of flavour and spices.
But it was in their use of a smoked Aberdeen Angus steak burger where you could definitely tell the difference.
The soft Brioche bun complimented the burger well, while the Turkey bacon added flavour. Meat lovers, you can’t go wrong with this one!
A spicy burger, filled with two chicken steaks and a beef patty, which was a real struggle to eat.
Sadly enough to say, it looked better than it tasted. We were expecting good flavours from both types of meat. The beef patty wasn’t as flavorous, with very little taste if anything.
However, the burst of flavour definitely came from the chicken, which tasted fresh and tender. Would probably opt for a chicken fillet burger next time.
NEW YORK STYLE
As good or as bad as this may sound to some, it’s an ultimate MUST!
The most popular dish that’s unique to NY itself. The soft, tender chicken pieces balanced well with the fresh savoury waffle, and a kick of spice that completed the overall flavour.
And with the cabbage complimenting it well by breaking things up a little, it just tasted like a good old dirty chicken burger, but with a twist.
You can’t go to a burger place and not try their cheesy chips now can you?
And we can tell you now that this is not something to be missed. A warm melting sensation of cheese and chips made to perfection, with just that right amount of cheese. Not too sickly or strong.
One of the best we’ve had!
While the Sweet Harlem potato Fries were your standard crispy type, they were quite salty, and so not as expected. Should’ve been sweeter.
Similarly, the New Yorker Fries were your average restaurant kind.
The Milky Bun was a fusion of hot meets cold! A fresh and soft doughnut filled with any topping and ice cream of your choice.
With a wide variety of toppings, we went for Peanut M&M’s, Strawberries, and Cookie Monster flavoured ice cream. What we got was that perfect sensation of a melting, bouncy doughnut with a touch of chocolate.
Topped with marshmallows, chocolate and cinnamon, the S’mores Waffle tasted just like a cinnamon roll, but in the form of a waffle. Quite a heavy and rich dessert this, but still an enjoyable one.
However, with the cinnamon being quite overpowering, you might not be able to have too much of it, not without it getting a little sickly perhaps.

What impressed us the most was their staff - the most friendliest and helpful staff you'd hope for. They were always up to accommodating our needs while helping with food choices.
And so a big thank you to Anisa – one of the sales assistants - for her amazing service, recommendations that hit the spot, and most importantly making our dine all the more worthwhile.
The New Yorker is not your ordinary food joint, making it an American experience worth taking.
