Whenever I have the opportunity to go to NYC, I make sure I go to my favorite spots and try at least two new ones. Thanks to my super awesome foodie friends, I got to try a few new places that will now be on me “must have when in NYC” list. ! Here’s a quick guide to some of FMITK’s favorite NYC foodie things.
The places I must go in NYC or my life is incomplete.
Momofuku Ssam Bar + Momofuku Milk Bar
Get something duck related at SsamBar then walk across the street to MilkBar and get a slice of crack pie or a compost cookie for dessert. Get a taste of the cereal milk ice cream while you’re there.
Probably my favorite sandwich in the city. The pork belly is great, but it’s a bit rich. The shrimp is also wonderful. I usually end up with the brisket or the catfish.
Get as many macarons as you can afford. The seasonal flavors are always wonderful. The only flavor I was slightly disappointed in was the lemon. Get at least 2 salted caramel.
New to FMITK
…these will probably be bumped up to the “staples” list for next trip.
Seriously, my new (to me) favorite restaurant in NYC. Everything that touched my lips was incredible. Get a seat at the bar and watch the chef work her magic.
More tapas! I actually ate at Casa Mono and Boqueria on the same day, but their version of tapas differ so much it wasn’t tapas overload.
Filipino food still hasn’t become a mainstream “Asian” staple like Thai or Vietnamese food, but Maharlika is looking to change that. They use real calamansi, and that makes them legit in my book lol
