If you’re visiting New York for the first time, you probably have a long list of places to go and things to see while you’re here. Chances are that list involves many of the popular attractions, like seeing the Statue of Liberty and ascending to the Empire State Building Observatory. However, in order to truly get the local vibe, you need to get in your car rental and explore some of the hidden gems that you won’t read about in the guide books.   The Feeding Tree is one of those hidden gems. Located in the Bronx, just a block or two from Yankee Stadium, this restaurant doesn’t have anything particularly special about its appearance—but the food is a different story.


The Perfect Menu: Affordable and Delicious

Most of the main courses at this Caribbean restaurant range in price from $6 to $12, making it incredibly affordable. And the only thing that trumps its affordability is its taste. Below are some of the dishes that have made this hidden gem shine:

  • Jerk shrimp and chicken
  • Curried goat
  • Oxtail stew

Perhaps curried goat isn’t your typical cuisine. However, we think that the bold flavors and rich spices will win you over and will make this fare a dining delight.

The Feeding Tree is always accessible. It offers dine-in, buffet, to-go, and delivery options. Whether you’re in the office or on the go, you can always enjoy this tasty Caribbean cuisine. Instead of going to a fancy, high-end restaurant in Manhattan, try this Bronx hidden gem. Your taste buds—and your pocket book—will love you for it.
