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.”

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.

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!
