I have so much more photos but I had to be super selective or else my post will be too long - which I think it already is. I definitely want to go back because I didn't get a chance to visit Brooklyn, Queens, Meatpacking District, Chelsea area and to eat at this Korean restaurant in Queens that does a mean seafood hot pot with a live squid on top. Yes - I know, that's messed up but I'm a very adventurous person.
This pie shop has savory and sweet pies. I've tried their thai curry chicken pie and holy it was good. The curry wasn't yellow, it was clear? With hints of coconut. Also I've tried two of their sweet pies. They had this flavorful ricotta and pear pie - so unique! Their lemon custard pie was so good too! The custard made the tiny pie pretty heavy and the lemon zest on top was candied.
The pulled pork waffle from the cart Wafel and Dinges that was featured on the show Eat Street. This waffle was really yummy. It had coleslaw and a red pickle on top. They also had another waffle called the Throwdown waffle. It was when Bobby Flay challenged the cooks of Wafels and Dinges and made his own waffle to try to beat Wafels and Dinges waffle. So the waffle was named after the show. The Throwdown waffle (not pictured) was really delicious. It had a caramelized syrup on it but it was a really interesting caramel.. almost hazelnut like in taste.
This was featured on a Food Network show as well. Russ & Daughters are known for having fresh cured fish items. I had their smoked salmon bagel and it was loaded with salmon! I had another bagel as well that had a caviar cream cheese spread.
Basically, all the places I've eaten at in New York was featured on the Food Network. If I wasn't a fashion blogger. I think I may have done a food blog. If you knew me personally, my personal Facebook has so many pictures of food on it!
Central Park was so beautiful
I went ice skating in Central Park! I wasn't allowed to take pictures while I was skating though.
I went to watch Wicked! It was such a touching and funny musical. I normally don't like musicals but I gave it a chance. Basically you just need to know the basics of the Wizard of Oz (there's a girl named Dorothy, red ruby slippers, a tin man, a lion, a scarecrow, a good witch and a bad witch - that's it!). It was about how the good witch, under unfortunate circumstances, became the "bad witch" and how the bad witch became the "good witch". I got amazing seats! I was 5 rows from the stage and just off center. It was so good that I cried. I know, how embarrassing.
I loved the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
This museum was more on the "fun" side because it has quirky
ladies pantyhose filled with sand
Van Gogh's starry night
Monet's waterlilies painting. This painting was really faded in real life.
Looking at Manhattan from on top of Rockafellar Center at night
Looking at Manhattan on the Empire State building in the day
so many tall buildings
It was so windy up here!
They had awesome lunch and dinner menus as well
But I just came here for the famous frozen hot chocolate (right) and a lemon custard pie berry sundae. They had a $1000 sundae as well. But they need a 48hour reservation before they do that. It probably had gold flakes in it.
Woodbury Commons Outlet. The home of awesome designer outlets! I didn't buy much from here surprisingly. Most of the nice stuff were either in a huge or tiny size for shoes and clothes.
Grand Central Station. The subway is super efficient in NY. They have so many lines. The one week all you can ride pass was only $29. It's a great deal for tourists!
More posts to come about my New York shopping haul (which I know you are all waiting for!) and my favorite restaurant in NYC
