A Top-Tier Burger
Gramercy Tavern is one of the best restaurants in NYC, and it’s also where you’ll find one of the city’s top burgers. If you want to recreate it at home, this kit comes with everything you need, including belly-cut bacon and four chuck/brisket patties as well as Shelburne cheddar and Gramercy Tavern’s own smoked onion aioli.
The Breakfast You Deserve
You may have heard that New York City has good bagels. Well, the rumors are true — and if you’d like evidence, we suggest you try Tompkins Square Bagels. Order online, and you can skip the inevitable wait time at this East Village institution.
Some Freezer Essentials
Nom Wah has been around since 1920, and it’s still a must-visit, in large part because of the dumplings. This variety pack comes with (frozen) pork soup dumplings as well as some chicken/cabbage dumplings, both of which are super easy to reheat at home. And if you want to mix things up, we suggest you add some shrimp siu mai to your order. You won’t regret it.
That Pizza You've Heard So Much About
If you want to get deep-dish in Chicago, the first place we’ll send you is Pequod’s. And that’s mostly because their pizza has thick, fluffy crust with caramelized edges and crispy cheese around the outside. This Chicago classic is something you need to experience, so you might as well get that out of the way with a two-pack of pepperoni pies.
Parachute is another one of our go-to spots in Chicago, in large part because this Korean/American restaurant makes some highly noteworthy bing bread. Their version comes stuffed with cheddar, scallions, bacon, and potato (with sour cream butter on the side), and this kit also includes some house-made kimchi and Korean fried chicken to round things out.
Must-Try Ice Cream
Where can you get ice cream with bourbon and cornflakes? As far as we know, only Humphry Slocombe. This is one of our favorite ice cream shops in San Francisco, and that particular flavor of theirs is called Secret Breakfast. Get a pint, along with some Matchadoodle and Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple.
A Birria-Filled LA Staple
More and more places are serving birria tacos, and we have absolutely no issue with this. But what about a birria burrito? That’s what LA’s Burritos La Palma is for. The burritos here are modestly sized and perfectly minimalist, which allows this establishment’s chewy, handmade Zacatecas-style flour tortillas to shine.
