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.

Living so close to Smorgasburg is both a blessing and a curse. But 99% a blessing.

I found two new things to chow at the Flea this weekend. 

  1. Lonestar Empire's mesquite, 15 hour-smoked angus brisket sandwich, complete with homemade barbecue sauce, bread and butter pickles, and Texas-style potato salad. I really know nothing about meat—heck, I haven't been eating it most of my life—but this year I've become quite the carnivore. I can tell you this: sinking my fork into that brisket felt the same as digging into that cream pie. The brisket fell apart at the slightest fork nuzzle. I think that means something very good.
  2. Rachel’s Pies chocolate cream pie with homemade whipped cream and pretzel crust. Sweet and salty perfection. This was my reward to myself for having to stay inside Saturday afternoon to do work. Best reward ever. I will be spending a lot more time inside doing work this fall if Rachel’s Pies is always my payoff.

When I saw this cinnamon bun for the first time, I thought that was salt sprinkled on top—and it had to be mine. Turns out it’s sugar, but how awesome would that have been? It still tasted amazing. Crunchy, glazed outside; flaky, perfectly cinnamon-coated inside. AQ Kafe can do no wrong.

Gourmet Food Truck Bazaar, Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market

On Sunday, the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market kicked off the Gourmet Food Truck Bazaar, which will take place the second Sunday of each month through October. The half a dozen trucks’ lines ran smoothly, with no more than a 15-20 minute wait. (Besides Kimchi Taco Truck, which was out of control!)

Rickshaw Dumpling Truck's chicken and Thai basil dumplings, 6 for $6.

Kelvin Natural Slush Co. slushies, in Ginger-Raspberry and Ginger-White Peach, $3.

The Cinnamon Snail vegan donuts in S’mores and Maple Pecan, previously mentioned here and here.

Wouldn’t Monday mornings be better with S’mores donuts? 
Can you believe this puppy is vegan?!

I’ve felt like such a little princess, eating these Dean and Deluca truffles at my desk all week long. A well-rationed birthday treat from my roomie has come to an end. 
Have a sweet—and safe—weekend, everyone.
