Food I ate in New York over 9 days Part II
Please see the archive for Part I and more food envy.
The first email was filled with too much content so I had to split up this newsletter into two! Sorry to disrupt the scroll!
Little Rascal – Nolita, Manhattan
After a lot of meaty food, we wanted something light. So we got Turkish lol. Delicious all round. Particularly enjoyed the octopus.
Momofuku Noodle Bar – East Village, Manhattan
I thought this place was going to be pants because it gave similar vibes to Bao ie Westernised, overpriced, overly trendy, loads of white people eating there. But it in fact, slapped. The specials were particularly good.
Egg Shop – Bowery, Manhattan
Last year when we came to New York for a different version of this trip, we went to this place too much. There are only so many times you can eat eggs and pretend to be a rich white lady going to brunch with her mates, without actually turning into an egg. We made it back once for the lols to show Adam the infamous spot. It was so busy we had to sit outside and the wind was banging this little piece of plastic roof up and down the whole time.
Kiki’s – Lower East Side, Manhattan
Another throwback for us. We discovered this place last year. It was hard to miss as there were a bunch of Nolita Dirtbag type looking people queueing round the corner in the blazing hot New York summer heat. This is the place with the original Chinatown signage intact. It makes for an unassuming Greek restaurant in the heart of Chinatown. They even use Chinese crockery in a fun nod to the building’s heritage and its surroundings. The food is great and so are the vibes. A fun place to people watch too.
