When you’re feeling the munchies after smoking weed, there’s nothing worse than being disappointed by a less-than-stellar meal. Fortunately, in New York City, there are plenty of great places to get your food fix after indulging in the sticky icky. Here are the best places to satisfy your munchies in NYC.
Chicken wings from Babu Ji
That feeling of instant nostalgia you get after eating at Babu Ji reminds me why I love New York. With an order of their sticky icky chicken wings and their refreshing rum based ice coffee, there is no where else I’d rather be than right here with this warm comforting food.
Tuna tartare pizza from Forcella
Forcella is the latest addition to New York’s list of Michelin-starred eateries. The restaurant brings Italian cuisine, with a seafood-centric focus, and a lively environment that’ll transport you to the Mediterranean. The Forcella brothers’ goal is simple: Make everything from scratch and make every meal taste like home. Their pizzas are stellar — everything from margherita with buffalo mozzarella and basil, to tuna tartare pizza with tuna sashimi and creme fraiche.
Bacon and egg roll from Nom Wah Tea Parlor
Nom Wah Tea Parlor is one of the best places to get your maughies on after a weed session. The staff are always nice and the food is actually really good for your meal. Try their bacon and egg roll it’s sure to satisfy your taste buds.
Falafel sandwich from Mamoun’s
Falafel sandwiches are made from deep-fried chickpeas (or fava beans), a tomato and onion sauce, tahini, garlic and olive oil. And these little treasures make for the perfect munchies. Mamoun’s is a favorite because it does falafel right with its fresh baked pita bread, tangy red cabbage slaw and creamy garlic yogurt sauce.
Bread bowl appetizer at Carmine’s
If you’re a bacon lover, you’ll love the Bread Bowl appetizer at Carmine’s. The bowl is filled with mozzarella cheese and roasted garlic, and then baked until golden brown and crispy. Pour on some honey or barbecue sauce for an extra kick!
BBQ pork buns at Chinatown Brasserie
Sometimes you have a craving for buns and BBQ pork after smoking marijuana. A good place to get these cravings satisfied is Chinatown Brasserie. They have a special buns section of the menu with great offerings such as classic, vegetable, and spicy grilled meat buns. Chinatown Brasserie is located on 15 Doyers Street in Manhattan, where they offer great Szechuan cuisine too!
Lamb chops at Keens Steakhouse

The place I found that satisfied my need for munchies was Keens Steakhouse, located at 72 West 36th Street. This old-school, no-frills steakhouse has been satisfying hungry diners since 1885.
