While riding the subway to Brooklyn the other day (where I’m staying) I smelled something funky. Assuming it was the strange woman next to me I tried to ignore it. Finally, the train pulled up to my stop. I hopped off and gratefully took a big breath.

Still funky. Oh no, the funkiness might be me. In fact it was me. In fact, as I quickly discovered, it was the stinky cheese I’d just bought at Chelsea Market. Phew, and oh no. I’m sure everyone on the train thought I was stinky. What a girl will do for some good cheese. I tell ya.
This photo was taken from the rooftop of the apartment building I’m staying in. Shhh. I snuck my dinner up there and watched the sunset.

I love a good diner. My favorite thing about them is the bottomless coffee.
|Salvadorian chicken. That green sauce was amazing.|
While visiting a family cemetery in Queens (don’t worry, we’re talking ancestors) I happened upon this little Salvadorian place with super cheap lunch specials. When the menu isn’t in English, you know you’ve found something good.

Chinatown totally blew my mind. The sights, the sounds, the deliciousness. I am totally going back just to eat. All of this food (plus a drink) was $5. Madness.
Last but not least, Zen Butter ice cream, peanut butter with toasted sesame seeds. Chinatown is major!
More and more and more to come.
