3 more places to visit in NYC

Penelope (159 Lexington Ave) A cute and almost British ambience is the impression of Penelope. A good spot for a date-brunch or catch up with the girlfriends. Nutella French Toasts, One Night Stand Waffle, and When Veggie met Sally are all featured on the brunch menu. They are also opened for lunch and dinner! Taste D’Lite After a while, all the frozen yoghurt gets … Read More 3 more places to visit in NYC

Hearty Salads

The past 6 weeks Ive had a salad for lunch every day. Might sound a bit boring but when it comes to salads, Americas view on a “normal sized portion”, suits me for the first time. If you order a salad here you get A LOT of food. You can choose a healthy one or like me – full fat dressing and tons of … Read More Hearty Salads

Mexican Fiesta

Something I will miss from NYC, and I guess the US in general, is the big selection of Mexican food. Every corner offers at least a couple of eateries and Chipotle is never too far away. You’ll find Chipotle and other Mexican restaurants in London as well, but you never “happen to run in” to one. And the variety of the dishes is also much … Read More Mexican Fiesta

5 “Trends” I would like to bring back to London

As Im coming to an end of my New York-staying I’ve started to evaluate the goods and bads of this city. Here are 5 “trends” I would like to take back to London (or where ever I go) and 1 that I wished existed here. 1. Brunch Parties. NYC is famous for its brunch parties and London (and of course other cities) is taking after but … Read More 5 “Trends” I would like to bring back to London

5 places to visit in NYC

I have been to quite a few places since I came here and I don’t have time to write about them all. But here is a recap on five of them:   The Frying Pan (Pier 66 west 26th street) Trendy but casual restaurant/bar on a ship – a perfect spot to watch the sunset while the DJ spins his music. Good burgers and amazing … Read More 5 places to visit in NYC

Pastis

With only 4 days left in New York City I still have a lot to do and see, but Im glad I feel like this so I have a reason to come back – soon! A week ago I rushed between two platforms in the subway when I all of the sudden had two familiar eyes looking at me. Didn’t have time to stop … Read More Pastis

Another tick off my Burger-list

A couple of days ago I wrote that I wanted to go to Le Parker Meridien. Well? Of course I went there! So – Le Parker Meridien (119 west, 56th street) is a fancy hotel on one of the streets close to Central Park. The lobby is enormous and you could almost get lost in the place. No one would ever think there’s a burger … Read More Another tick off my Burger-list

Blueberry Bagels? pt. 2 (My failure)

I’ve told you about my Blueberry Bagel obsession. I’ve been in to every bagel shop I’ve passed by without finding any and even when my friend brought me to “reliable” Tompkins Square Bagels I walked away with blueberry creme cheese (NOT what I was looking for). Davids Bagels, which was my second “I KNOW they have blueberry bagels”-place, made me disappointed as well. So … Read More Blueberry Bagels? pt. 2 (My failure)

POPular Burgers

I have a long list of burger-places I should and want to try before I go home. The Spotted Pig and Le Parker Meridien are two of them and I had POP-burger on the list – until the day. Sometimes you just need to do what you need to do. Someone cancelled a date? Don’t have any friends? Waiting for a better day? Well … Read More POPular Burgers

Tuesday Special at Bodhi Tree

On my way home from work today I took a detour by Broadway to do some shopping. Two of the most loveable persons are getting married once I get home so I need everything ready for that. Shopping is exhausting and it adds on with a laptop in your bag. Planned to bring thai food home and pass out in my bed but when … Read More Tuesday Special at Bodhi Tree

NYC Restaurant Week

Next Monday, the 16th, the NYC Restaurant Week(s) starts. I will only be able to take part 3 days as next Wednesday is my last day here. Bummed because there are some can take advantage of some really good deals. But, London has something similar in the beginning of October, right when I get back there, so I look forward to that! Here you … Read More NYC Restaurant Week
