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

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

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!


I was on my way to Union Square after a very filling lunch with my friend at the Green Bar in the Embarcadero Center when I stopped mid-sentence upon seeing this.

“It’s the the crème brûlée cart!” Of course we had to try it! Laden with left over lunch and Miette macarons and all.

“Featured in The New York Times, Sunset Magazine, The Food Network and many more unexpected places,” I’d wanted to try since it first created a stir on Yelp. The crème brûlée man even gave us sweet covers for our treats.

We promptly found a place to sit across the street and dug in.

Caramelized goodness. Dark chocolate peppermint and vanilla bean.

It was a good day.
