Oysters and beer. My first time eating raw ones if you can believe it. They were delish. Scratch that one off the Summer Bucket List!
Cannolis in the West Village.
Coffee and a cupcake = breakfast in central park. I love these coffee cups because you always see New Yorker’s drinking out of them in the movies.
Bagel with lox cream cheese.
Chocolate egg cream at a real soda fountain. This place was seriously authentic, down to the soda machines, milk shake maker, old dude wearing a white hat behind the counter, chalkboard menu, diner-style waitress, and grandpa and grandson enjoying a milkshake at the counter.
Lamb and rice plate from a street vendor. I heart spinning meat.
They call this the “sloppy bao,” it’s like a sloppy Joe, only the Vietnamese way. I call it the bomb. Seriously, this was the best sandwich I’ve ever had. Meaty, spicy, saucy ground beef topped with marinated green mango and cilantro on a crusty baguette. Nom.
Brooklyn beer on the ledge at the apartment I’ll be staying at in Brooklyn. Love this place already.
More to come.
