New York City for Foodies

New York is one of the most vibrant cities in the world, and an awesome city to explore on foot. 5 days in New York are just about the perfect amount of time to spend in the city at an easy pace. I had listed some of our expenses below. 

Food

The food in USA is affordable and incredibly delicious. We went to iconic places and had beef pastrami, bagels etc. If we had a dine in meal, it cost around 50-70usd for 2 pax. Daily breakfast was so filling, that we could have easily skipped lunch and ate a little for dinner. But it's hard to resist all the delicious food so the bulk of our money was spent on food.

Cash/card

We brought 4K USD cash for 2 pax for a 3 weeks trip in USA. Youtrip exchange rate is better than Instarem. We had to use cash for food mostly. Purchases was used on card. We have 2K USD leftover, so do take note of your leftover cash and spend them if you like.
