of the many things New Yorkers debate loudly is which is
better, Papaya King or Gray's Papaya. No contest as
far as I'm concerned. Gray's is all about value,
Papaya King is all about quality and presentation.
King's hot dog comes on a crisply toasted bun. Had
mine with kraut and onions. Went for their namesake
Papaya Drink too. Frothy, nice flavor, kinda like an
old time Orange Julius, but with Papaya.
did a page on the Philadelphia Papaya King at the U Penn
campus. More info there.
