NYC Part 2: FOOOOOOD!^^

Ahhhhh I want the weekend to come already! Well I discovered something new called PIGG by Ameba. If you have an Ameba account, you can get a PIGG! It's very addictive... I want to keep doing those scratchy card stuff to get new items lol. It's kind of like a more active baby version of Poupee Girl. It's hard for me to communicate with people on there since I don't speak Japanese... but some PIGGs will chat with me lol. I know it sounds strange but the whole cute concept of it makes me want to keep playing!



Well I wanted to post some food stuff from NYC but I didn't take pics of everything I ate. I would be so hungry sometimes that I would just eat it and then forget about taking pics. There's a good example here... I think it's the yakitori. You'll see what I mean. Oh and my pics from now on are going to be clickable. Yea I know my previous ones weren't. I think I might change them sometime in the future when I have time.

First place we ate at was the SHAKE SHACK! There was a crazy line because the Pride Parade was going on. This was so good! Two beef patties plus a fried mushroom patty and lotsa cheesE! We ate here twice. The other time was for an after dinner snack. Yes we are pigs.

Pizza of course from Lombardi's! They pride themselves for being the first licensed pizza restaurant in all of America. We ate so much pizza in NYC but the others were more like non sitdown pizza places lol. I never knew pizza could be this good. Yum yum.

Ramen from Ippudo! It was a long wait and kind of on the pricey side but it was so tasty!! This was with pork bone base I think. It sure tasted like it. I love ramen so much!

We went to Katz Deli! We got a pastrami sandwich and a corned beef sandwich! This one pictured is the corned beef one. They put so much meat in and I love how they carve the meat in front of you. I know we went to a lot of the touristy restaurants haha.

We ate yakitori at Yakitori Taisho! It was so cool because the restaurant looks so classic. Them bbqing it in front of you. We got all sorts of strange stuff... like chicken kidney, heart, skin, and beef tongue! haha I know it sounds weird but it was very good. The chicken kidney was the best one! I already started eating before taking the pic which explains the empty areas.

Creamy salmon yakisoba from the same yakitori place. I ordered the wrong thing... I just wanted the regular Japanese yakisoba. It was still good though!!

Congee from Congee Village. They served their congee in clay pots so it was still bubbling when it got to our table. Can you see the bubbles? This one was the beef congee. We also ordered an abalone chicken congee. Very inexpensive... one claypot is around 3 bowls and we payed less than $10 with the fried bread for two people.

Steamed soup pork dumplings (Xiao Long Bao) from Joe's Shanghai! They don't break when you pick it up and they're huge! I've never seen such huge XLBs before! Yummy.

Grilled corn from Cafe Habana. Sorry for the bad pic... the lighting was bad. I know we have this in LA too but still these were GREAT! We had our main dishes there which was steak and pork. Both were great too. I just have bad pics of them so I won't bother posting.

There were so many gelato places. Grom was the second gelato place we went to. It was so refreshing! Aww I feel like eating gelato now...

There was so much cream soda in NY!! I love cream soda!^^

We also went to those Halal carts and we went to that popular cart on 56th i think? I was too excited and ate before taking a pic that time too lol. I had such a wonderful time eating yay! It's all going to my thighs lol.

The ramen and the steamed dumplings look delicious! well they all looked delicious but my mouth started watering the minute i saw the little dumplings. The roasted corn picture got me too lol.
