Michael George Wants to Eat Food From Every Single Country in the World Without Leaving NYC

A reporter for NBC New York by the name of Michael George, has spent the last two years exploring New York for the best food from all over the world and documenting it on social media.

Which could sound crazy, but…

He’s knocked out 114 countries and counting…

COUNTRY #13: CHINA Dish: Peking duck (roast duck, with scallion, cucumber, and hoisin sauce, wrapped in pancake), cha siu bao (BBQ pork in baked bun) Restaurant: Peking Duck House (28 Mott St., Chinatown, Manhattan), Mei Li Wah (64 Bayard St., Chinatown, Manhattan) The Chinese food we typically eat in America- kung pao, General Tso’s, and orange chicken- isn’t authentic Chinese. They were all dishes created in America by Chinese immigrants. My friend Weijia took me to Chinatown for some REAL Chinese food! Peking duck has been served in China for 700 years. Succulent roast duck with crispy skin, scallions, cucumbers, and hoisin sauce, wrapped in a pancake. Typically, you get all the ingredients at your table and assemble it however you like it. We then went to Mei Li Wah Bakery for cha siu bao- it’s the best $1 food in the world! Cha sui bao are commonly called “pork buns”- tender pork in a sweet barbecue sauce, wrapped in a soft, sweet bun. #china #mikegeorgeeatstheworld #nyc #food #foodie
