11 Heavenly Food to Try in NYC

“I cannot believe I booked a flight to New York City! New York City, baby!” When my boyfriend and I booked a flight to New York City for spring break 2013, it felt surreal. I never thought in my life that I’d have a chance to visit New York City due not having much travel experience other than Mexico with my family. It is important to do research on activities but so is food! I am quite picky about food but then again at the same time, I just absolutely love food! I am actually known as that one friend who often sniff around and asked “food? what’s that smell?” I heard New York City have tons of great delicious food, so I was on the hunt. I use Yelp to search for it! Thanks goodness for Yelp.  I went to many different restaurants, but here are my top favorites through photos!

 Clinton Street Baking Company


Egg benedict and cripsy potato pancakes with house smoked salmon. Doesn’t that sound good?! It is also a vegetarian friendly restaurant! It opens between 8:00 am4:00 pm and 6:00 pm11:00 pm for breakfast and brunch.

Totto Ramen


 If you love ramen, you cannot miss out Totto Ramen! It’s SO good. They make really fresh homemade noodles. It is a small restaurant, therefore it will be crowded often. However, it is deafintely worth the wait! Another great ramen is Ippudo NY!

Luke’s Lobsters


I’m not really a huge fan of lobsters, but if you are, my boyfriend highly recommends Luke’s Lobster. He ordered Noah’s Ark that consists three different flavors: crab rolls, shrimp rolls and lobster rolls.

There are 7 destinations in NYC. They may be found in West Side Manhattan near American Museum of Natural History and several other areas.

Shake Shack


The East Coast’s famous hamburger restaurant, the Shake Shack! Just like how In-n-Out is famous burger restaurant at the West Coast. In the picture above is called, “Shack stack.” It is a cheeseburger among with ‘shroom burger topped with shack sauce, lettuce, tomato.

The Shake Shack are also found in several locations, such as in West Side Manhattan near American Museum of Natural History.

La Churreria


Crispy delicious churro dipped in cup of chocolate. I could not resist. It’s absolutely perfect for whose who love churro and chocolate.

Rice pudding dessert! I know, I know. Some of you may say eww to rice puddings, but it is actually good! I have chocolate chip flavor, and I forgot what was the second half. My apologies! However, you’ll never know until you try it! There are a lot of flavors, such as french toast, sex drugs and rocky road.

Kung Fu Tea


 If you know anything about me, you would know my addiction to boba. Even just across the states, I still have to look for boba! At last, I found a great place for boba, so you can say my mission was accomplished! 😉 So, do you want to grab milk tea with boba on the go? Go here!

I saved this best for last. PIZZA!! I love this pizza! In my personal opinion, Grimaldi’s tasted better than Lucali’s.
