New York City: Food Edition (Day 1)

NYC was delicious. Part of our planning included research on food. :D

Our first stop, Doughnut Plant on the Lower East Side.

ImageFeatured on The Best Thing I Ever Ate.

ImageCrème brûlée doughnut, with a caramelized shell and custard filling. Oh how I want to eat one of these right now.

ImagePistachio doughnut. A little too doughy for my tastes.

Next stop, Katz’s Delicatessen, a popular spot for locals and tourists. Also known for being the site for a particular scene in When Harry Met Sally, “I’ll have what she’s having.”

ImagePastrami sandwich, this was so good!

Yum more sweets. Eileen’s Special Cheesecake, included in many best cheesecakes in NYC lists. Bobby Flay was here!

ImageWe had the plain and mango mini cakes. Light and fluffy, yet creamy and smooth.

Kee’s Chocolate. Featured on The Best Thing I Ever Ate their crème brûlée bonbon.

ImageI also tried another popular item, the black sesame truffle, melt in your mouth goodness.

Last food stop of the day, Momofuku Noodle Bar, recommended by many for their pork buns.

ImageI wasn’t blown away; it’s over-hyped, not to say it wasn’t good. Come on now, pork belly on a soft white bun with hoisin sauce and scallions.

Also had the momofuku ramen, eh nothing to write home about. Your average ramen. My favorite part of this was the poached egg.

That concludes day one in food!

    The Crème brûlée doughnut look so good!!! Love custard filling sweets! <3 Pastrami sandwich, the truffles and the cakes look good too! I'm not too attracted to the porkk buns tho…I just had the exact same meat filling in a closed bun…I guess that's more like a traditional pork bun? Although how they did it was quite interesting :D I think we had the real good Asian stuffs so it's really hard to lure us with those hehe! Altho I do like some Asian fusion when it's done right!
