First stop of the day, Shake Shack, like the In-N-Out of the East Coast.

ImageThe Shake Stack! Touted by many New Yorkers as one of their favorite burger joints.

ImageThis baby is a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, and the special ShakeSauce topped with a ‘Shroom Burger. What’s a ‘Shroom Burger? It’s an oozy goodness of a cheese-filled fried Portobello mushroom. I’m not big on burgers, but this I would come back for mmmmm.

ImageMini burgers! Haha I mean, macarons. Coconut and pistachio. Yum, yum, yum.

Next up, banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery. While we were waiting in line outside (If there’s a line out the door, it must be good! Right?), we discovered there’s a Magnolia Bakery in California now too.

ImageImageIt’s a banana bread pudding done oh so very right. Just the way I like it, extra custardy.

It’s NYC and you have to try the street food. Of course we try another place that frequently has long lines. The Halal Guys, on 53rd and 6th. Don’t be fooled by the nearby copycats.


Not the most appealing picture, but this was scrumdiddlyumptious.

That’s it for day 2. I’m hungry!


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.
