Pioneered by kindergarteners, snack time is now fundamental to the human experience. And since many of us are working from our apartments these days, snacking has taken on greater meaning. It’s a chance to get outside, stretch your legs, and heed the calls of the 3pm sun, all while eating something delicious. While we’ve already got a full guide on where to take a snack break in the East Village, here are five more spots across the city where you can grab some onigiri, hummus, and more.

THE SPOTS

Shúkos Somasdiez Guatemala

$$$$
$$$$ 245 E 75th Street

Your order: papas shúkas

Your mom doesn’t run your life anymore, so you can now snack on French fries whenever you want. Stop by this Guatemalan food truck and order the papas shúkas with steak, which is topped with drizzled mayo, grilled meat, and salsa dulce on top. Shúkos bounces around from the Bronx to Midtown East, but lately they’ve been posted up at East 75th Street and 2nd Avenue on the UES.

Duzan

$$$$
$$$$ 2411 Steinway St

Your order: hummus and fresh pita

While you could always dip carrots into some sh*tty store-bought hummus at home, you could also go to Duzan in the Little Egypt section of Astoria for our favorite hummus and pita in the area. It’s so creamy and delicious that you won’t mind covering your keyboard in hummus in between typing and snacking.

Your order: patty coco bread

If you’re near Little Caribbean, walk to Errol’s on Flatbush Avenue by the park, and get some patty coco bread or a flaky coconut roll. Either way, wash it down with one of their sorrel and ginger drinks.

Frenchette Bakery

$$$$
$$$$ 220 Church St

Your order: hot chocolate

This bakery in Tribeca from the Frenchette team serves hot cocoa with toasted chartreuse marshmallow, made with a hint of French liqueur. It’s even more luxurious when paired with a pistachio croissant or a kouign-amann from the bakery.

Yaya Tea Garden

$$$$
$$$$ 51 Chrystie St

Your order: shrimp tempura onigiri

At Yaya Tea on Chrystie Street, you can get sizeable onigiri for less than $4 a pop. Our favorite is the one with tempura shrimp, which comes with lots of mayo and a crispy nori wrapper. If you’re in Bensonhurst, Elmhurst, or Gramercy, know that Yaya has locations there too.
