Mexican: Al Hormo for sure

Several years of experience here, these answers are legit.

One minor change - just get v{iv} Thai instead of @Nine. You will not be disappointed.

Sophies and Dim Sum palace also amazing.

Empanada Mama recently started delivering all over Manhattan even though they're in LES. Open all night, great food.

Empanada Mama is in Hell's Kitchen too! Not sure if it's new or not but walked past it the other day

Second Majestic; Cosmic Diner is good too (only place that cuts a hole in the styrofoam so the fries stay crispy).
Bareburger for rough days
'Wichcraft for Sandwiches (think this is the place that includes popcorn with everything)
Num Pang for Asian Fusion
Angelo's for Pizza
Bar Kogi for wings/appetizer type food

For barbecue; Mighty Quinn's on the UES is the best but takes a while. Virgil's is the fastest for midtown; but notably worse.

Oh man, I miss Dhaba! soooo good

Sophie's is trash. If you ever want good cubanese(Cuban Chinese fusion) go to Flor De Mayo on the UWS

red poke from hell's kitchen is pretty good for a poke bowl (healthy but meaty)
