About

Eating my way through the Big Apple and around the world.

Always in favor of extraordinary flavor versus saving a few calories, I’m constantly seeking the best restaurants, recipes, and random little food finds. This blog chronicles my discoveries, most of which are located in New York City, the foodie heaven I am fortunate to call home.

I am an editor at Zagat, but all opinions on this blog are mine and have nothing to do with my employer.

I take my photos with a point-and-shoot Canon PowerShot SD850. Which goes to show that if you're passionate about photography but can't afford fancy camera equipment, you can still take quality photos.

Taylor Takes a Taste

What Katie Ate

16 May 2011
While strolling in the Marigny, my favorite neighborhood in New Orleans, we came across a tiny little house labeled “coffee.” I was jonesing for an iced latte, so we ducked in to find a place that did not feel like New Orleans at all. It was minimalist, blinding white—save for the namesake Orange Couch—and everyone was silently working.
The latte was awesome (and they’re known for their Vietnamese iced coffee and milkshakes), but the real surprise was the Japanese mochi ice cream they have overnited from Hawaii. It’s a ball of ice cream wrapped in a gummy rice coating, and it is amazing. The texture was chewy, like a gumdrop with an ice cream center. Loved our white chocolate raspberry and chocolate coconut flavors.
Help! Where can I find this in New York??

  4. identiphi answered: search for “Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream” in NY (Bubbies is the HI source). Also, mochi only refers to the rice-flour outside not the whole thing

    this seems similar to yukimi daifuku in Japan. (in my sight, the mochi skin is thicker than in Japan, so I said...
