I went to Gray’s Papaya in New York, a small chain that has many imitators, so I made sure to go to the original. It’s a hot dog joint, with 100% fruit juice drinks that are made fresh. I learned about this place from Anthony Bourdain on No Reservations. I think the main thing that makes this place popular is that it’s so cheap.
Hurray for Gray's Papaya!
All the signs and decorations inside. I don't know who's head is in my shot.
I got the fresh papaya drink. It was very tasty.
After eating hot dogs any digestion aid is good.
You can't beat this special! I heard they are opening up a Gray's Papaya in Hollywood. I wonder if they will have the same prices.
Here is my meal. I didn't get the combo, just one dog with mustard and a papaya drink. There are no tables, just a counter. If you go, order the combo, one dog is not very filling.
