TAKING A BITE OUT OF THE BIG APPLE

I have been back from NYC for a couple of days now and I’ve got to say, as much as the city was a ton of fun, I’m happy to be home. My tummy is happy to be home too – I think I stuffed it past the point of reason!

SHAKE SHACK

A Shake Shack burger, the first time I had one, is indescribable. So I went back for more! The char on the patty, the squish of the yellow Martin’s potato roll, the addictiveness of the Shack Sauce. It was amaze-balls!!! Plus, the crinkle cut fries got me every time. I love a good crinkle cut!

CAFE ORLIN

The cafe ambience is great. Located in the Lower East Side. My friend & I were seated right away and we shared the buttermilk pancake topped w/ berry compote & blueberries! The food & coffee is amazing! Love love love.

MOMOFUKU NOODLE BAR

Remember how I said ramen is a thing now? It is. And Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York City is doing it very well. Noodles and good vibes. This is what makes me happy. Little eats like this just make my heart sing. Left feeling happy, stuffed and wanting to come back. Definitely recommend.

Great Vietnamese and Thai restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen. Over 4,000 gold Thai temple bells line the ceiling above you while a warm glow hits your cheeks that may or may not come from the huge industrial whisks fitted with light bulbs. The only way to cool off is with one of their delicious craft cocktails – with names like “Bruiseberry Mojito” and “Ladyboy Dacquiri” – you’ll be sure to wanting more.

HALAL FOOD TRUCK

Manhattan is home to many smells, but perhaps the most delicious is the chicken-y, savory scent that emanates from the city’s countless halal carts. I order the Chicken Over Rice topped w/ salad of iceberg and tomatoes, and that mysterious sweet-sour-tangy white sauce that just has to be ladled all over the chicken and rice for true street-style authenticity! OMG it was bomb dot com!!! Your NY trip is incomplete unless you visit one of these food trucks! They are the best, simply the best!

SPOT DESSERT BAR

I had heard about this dessert place from a friend of mine who absolutely loved this place, so when I had the chance I decided to go and give it a try. Spot is a cute little dessert spot in the basement of one of the myriad of eateries lining St. Marks. Don’t be surprised if a dessert called “Harvest” arrives in earthenware pot, freshly potted with cocoa cookie crumble “soil”, topped with a fresh sprig of mint. The layers of shortcake and fresh fruit that lie within go perfectly with the raspberry sorbet and crème anglaise sauce that it is plated with. The Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake literally BLEW. MY. MIND!!! Hands down one of the best dessert places I have gone to. Who thinks of incorporating green tea into molten chocolate? Welcome to heaven!

Until next time NYC!
