Get ready to be up all night on a full stomach and with a renewed sense of wanderlust as outstanding chef Margarita Forés and co-host Edu Manzano embark on Metro Channel’s ‘The Crawl’ in no less than the city that never sleeps—New York.
The delectable trip is surely not to be missed as Chef Margarita, who was recognized as 2016’s Best Female Chef in Asia, returns to “The Crawl” to taste the best of The Big Apple with her fun, stylish and charismatic co-host Edu Manzano. From the finest all-American fare to Filipino cuisine, the tandem definitely cooked up something special for the viewers.
Witness the pair’s visit to some of the city’s world-famous sights and their experience along the bustling streets of New York, including the vibrant Times Square. For those seeking calm and some time to reflect, “The Crawl: New York” hosts also took the time to wind down at Central Park and the World Trade Center site.
Of course, given that New York City is the ultimate melting pot, the duo didn’t waste time feasting on a variety of gastronomies fit for the ultimate food trip.
Chef Margarita and Edu dropped by well-established and budding Filipino restaurants at the East Village of Manhattan like Jeepney Gastropub, which boasts of its diverse set of bomb cocktails like Ayala Avenue, Juice Mary Joseph, and Pinay Colada and most famous for its original Chori Burger with double patty (half of which is longganisa).
In addition, they also savored some good-old escabeche and bone marrow salpicao at The Ugly Kitchen and the fiery spicy sisig at Mama Fina’s.
On the other hand, the food crawlers didn’t pass up the opportunity to chomp down the best eats from the prominent restaurants in the Manhattan borough such as the legendary New York hotdogs of Gray’s Papaya, one of the city’s best bagels at Russ & Daughters, and the renowned old school American steak at Peter Luger in Brooklyn.
