New York is the most densely populated city in the United States. Its capital is Manhattan and it is continuously pursued to be the gauge for greatest success.

Luis Glass and William S. Arnold invented the jukebox in 1890. Press a combination of letters and numbers and it will play your chosen song. It is basically a coin-operated phonograph. 

They say that if you survive the lifestyle in New York, you’ll more likely to survive anywhere. The concrete jungle is the hub for anybody who wants to make a name culturally, politically, and economically. A lot of entertainers, entrepreneurs and people of great influence choose to flourish in New York.

Interestingly, the world had become open-minded because of so many platforms catering social networks. People became aware of what is at the other side of the globe without actually having to be there.

Because of this, many advertising companies takes advantage of the versatility in terms of ideas, culture impact and empowerment in its implementation. They transform it into opportunity.

Combining this two is easily covered by the cliché, ‘east meets west’. And that’s the dynamic energy that makes New York Diner a hit in Tsuen Wan.


Recommending B.L.T. Burger for a hearty meal costing around HK$68.

Citywalk that is 9 minutes away from Exit D of Tsuen Wan West MTR Station holds New York Diner. As the name suggests the vibe of the city, the food matches it perfectly. My family and I tried their pizza, pasta and hamburger, three of the commonly craved viands by New Yorkers.


With a budget of HK$101-200, Open Rice assures you of a satisfying moment. A wide array of choices include, New York Cheesecake, fat fries, American Chorizo Pizza, Diced Beef Penne in New York Style, Grilled thin U.S. Sirloin Rice in Black Truffle Sauce and kinds of beer that you may just see in New York.

My husband is not a fan of anything raw. So, he wants his burger well-done, no blood. In Hong Kong, sometimes, even when you instruct “well done” in cooking your beef steak or burgers, it still comes medium well. But his burger was not just cooked perfectly but the melted cheese atop it as it got served made all of our mouths water!

To be exact, this diner is situated at Shop G27-28, G/F, Citywalk 1, 1 Yeung Ok Rd., Tsuen Wan. You could see a jukebox upon the entrance door and I thought it was cool. The interior is decorated with the familiar lively skyline of the city, pick up trucks, graffiti and a signage that speak of ol’ chocklit shoppe of Pop’s. It was clean, and as we entered, my daughter thought it smelled so good that made her order pizza without hesitation.

I think these are the owner’s personal beer collection while he was in New York!


Half and half pizza serves 2-3 people for a price of HK$138.

From 6 choices of pizza delights, I chose Roasted beef and bell pepper pizza and the other one was New York Chicken Feast Pizza. I could attest to the freshness of it and their dough was delicious and of decent thickness.

Last but not the least, we indulged in Grilled Chicken Linguine with Home-made tomato Sauce. Pasta was cooked al dente but personally, I thought it needed more sauce. Nonetheless, the chicken was kept juicy on the pizza. So there were an explosion of flavours there altogether!

The usual drinks like soda, iced lemon tea and desserts including sundaes are available. Although alcoholic drinks are also available, the beers in the picture were not.

I’d give New York Diner a 3.5 out of 5 for its food. 5 out of 5 for cleanliness. Accessible to toilet is zero because you had to go out of the restaurant to use the toilet. They are open daily from 11:30am to 10:00pm. Pay via cash and credit (AE, Visa, Mastercard) and is subject to 10% service charge. With bookings and reservations, call (852)22469488. A shout out to those who had stayed in New York or have lived there, I ask you to share to me what you think of this place.


I have a deep regard for your time. It's when I write and cook that time becomes non-existent. I love learning and while you think I am the kind of lady who has a lot of things to say, just take it that I was sharing what I had learned with full impact over a cup of Joe.
