If you’ve just finished a vape session or taken a hit from a joint or a bong, let’s face it, you’re probably going to want some delicious food pretty soon. Hopefully, for your sake, you also live in New York City. Simply put, the Big Apple boasts some of the most diverse and mind-blowing cuisine that you’ll ever have the pleasure of sampling. Therefore, what better place is there to have a smoke (or a vape) and then go out in search of some delicious eats?
But with so many choices, what are vapers and smokers to do? Well, there’s a reason people call this the greatest city in the world. Luckily for you, we’ve managed to create a list that caters to just about any kind of cuisine that your high little heart desires.
This standing-room-only hole in the wall offers up what is considered by many to be the city’s greatest selection of Middle Eastern food. The best part, though, is that you won’t have to break your budget--most of the menu items are well within the range of even the most cash-strapped herbal vape lover.
Shake Shack is one of the best chain burger joints. Its various locations throughout the city’s boroughs ensures that you are never far away from the mouth-watering patties this place serves up. For the best possible experience (and as long as the weather is cooperating), head down to the location within Madison Square Park; they let you sit outside, and you’ll be able to continue your vape sesh on the sly no problem.
The one and only. This century-old delicatessen --famous for, among other things, the legendary orgasm scene in the film When Harry Met Sally...-- boasts some of the most delicious eats you’ll find in the entire country; indeed, it was recently ranked as the most iconic restaurant in the state. (Pro tip: go for the mouth-watering pastrami sandwich with fries.) Though it tends to run on the pricey side, this is a New York City experience that you will not want to miss.
If you think you’ve ever tasted delicious French fries, this place will have you reexamining your entire life. The authentic Belgian fries served by this tiny eatery in the East Village even allows you to sample everything before you decide which one to go with. A smoker’s paradise, if there ever was one.
The iconic Joe’s Pizza --with outposts in both Manhattan and Brooklyn-- offers up the most solid slice that the city has to offer. No frills, no bs. Just be forewarned - you are unlikely to order just one.
A charming hole in the wall nearest to Brooklyn’s Montrose Avenue subway stop, this tiny eatery offers delectable Mediterranean appetizers and sandwiches that will leave you wanting more every time. (Pro tip: Go with the halloumi sandwich, a light yet delicious creation will allow you to not hate yourself several hours later.) This place is a true reward from the munchie gods.
If you’re in a pinch and need some quick munchie delights, put down the portable vape pen and head to the corner. You can usually count on finding a bodega/deli close by with vape-worthy munchies. Corner delis will serve up a wide variety of hot and cold sandwiches from eggs to chicken cutlet plus the usual snacks and candy. The only problem is, after a solid vape session, it is easy to get lost in the ridiculous amount of choices you have.
