MANILA -- Edu Manzano brought his dance craze "Papaya" to New York City.

And he got award-winning Filipino chef Margarita Fores to join him in dancing to the '70s hit.

In a Facebook post on Monday, Manzano shared a video of them dancing in front of the popular hotdog restaurant Gray's Papaya.

"Doing the Papaya kasama si chef Margarita Fores sa New York. Panoorin ang All-Pinoy crew sa background," Manzano wrote in the caption.

Manzano and Fores are in the Big Apple to shoot for Metro Channel's "The Crawl."

Manzano started the Papaya dance craze during his "Pilipinas Game KNB?" stint back in 2008. 
The dance was even featured in the March 21, 2008 episode of ABC's "Good Morning, America." After showing a video of Filipino kids dancing to "Papaya," Diane Sawyer and the other anchors did their own version on live TV.

Early this year, Manzano admitted that he misses doing the "Papaya" dance.
