New York! What can we say about food in New York city apart from the fact that you can get absolutely anything and everything you can imagine there. I think our list of keto must eats in New York before our trip was longer than the list of attractions we wanted to visit. We have done the hard yards for you and narrowed it down to our top 5 keto must east in New York.
As a couple, eating out together is one of our favourite things to do. We love finding new places as well as going back to our old favourites. When we began our ketogenic lifestyle we were both really worried we wouldn’t be able to eat out any more.
This has not been the case at all. We have really enjoyed the challenge of finding keto friendly and low carb restaurants in Melbourne, where we live, and in other cities when we travel. The other challenge we love is finding a way to make any menu an option for us.
If you are interested in how we manage to stay low carb whilst eating out make sure you check out our Keto Travel Essentials – Eating out post for further tips.

What we ate
We have been hearing about the cheese shell tacos here for a while and were so excited to finally be able to try them. They definitely did not disappoint. I was nervous about placing the order as the cheese tortilla is not displayed on the menu. There was no need to worry. When ordering just ask for the cheese tortilla and then choose your fillings. We opted for one of each of the steak, pork and chicken. All were equally amazing.
The cheese tortilla is like nothing we have been able to create at home. When we make cheese shell tacos they are a hard shell. These are a soft tortilla and are much closer to a flour or corn tortilla. We really wished we were able to go back for a second meal, but there are just so many awesome places to eat and visit in New York City.
