The second week I spent in New York. I had a wonderful week visiting museums, going to the theatre and wandering around the shops. I also tried out some of the food places I had lined up.
The first was The Halal Guys, a food truck at the corner of 53rd St and 5th Ave. There were three choses, chicken, meat and falafel. I went for a chicken wrap, which was ok, not the best things I've ever tasted but ok, I forgot to take a picture! I also tasted a black and white cookie and a cupcake from Amy's Bread both of which were fantastic, but devoured too quickly for a picture!
One of the other things I have been dying to try are cannoli. I guess you can get them here but I've never seen them.
This was from the grocery store/deli near where we stayed and it was yummy; sweetend cream cheese inside a chocolate biscuit shell.
I also had a diner meal somewhere near Chelsea Market, which we wandered around but as we wanted to sit down and eat we found a diner. I had a diner burger with bacon and cheese served with sweet potato fries.
And a red velvet shake.
I also finally tried Katz's Deli as I wanted to find out what all the fuss was about. I had a Corned Beef Reuben with pickles and at $17.45 it was ridiculously expensive for something that I didn't think was that great. It was a bit bland even with the thousand island dressing. I don't think I'll bother going back.
On a recommendation from my friend Laurel I went to The Two Little Red Hens Bakery and got cherry cheesecake. It was out of this world. So smooth and creamy with a crunchy base, the best cheesecake I have ever eaten.
