Brunch at Lobster Joint.
An evening out in East Village.
Dinner at Beyond Sushi, and dessert at Spot Dessert.
A morning of heavy rains calls for brunch in East Village. Brunch with Mark and Jeff. Such was the synchronicity of our minds on this morning that we all ordered breakfast burritos.
Decided to try my hand at making oxtail soup. Tomato paste (a crucial ingredient!) not pictured.
Hours of simmering later, I've concluded that I'm rubbish at this cooking thing.
Do-It-Yourself Korean BBQ at Picnic Garden in Flushing, Queens.
Evening out for a friend's birthday. Dinner and dessert.
Dinner at Sushi Yasuda. Some of the chef's selections.
Grabbed dessert at Schmackary's. Coffee and a Maple Bacon Cookie.
An afternoon spent gallivanting around Flushing eating, walking, and eating some more finally culminated with dinner at a DIY Korean BBQ restaurant.
The marinated galbi was simple amazing. Meal came with the usual assortment of banchan (side dishes), in addition to some steamed egg.
Sausage and Sweet Potato Fries at Radegast Hall and Biergarten
Dinner at Maharlika
Manhattanhenge in May. Afternoon rains were a bit worrisome, but thankfully, the clouds parted just in time for the sunset.
Taken on 34th St and 5th Ave.
Last two photos were taken the next day at Tudor City Overpass, 42nd St.
The conspicuous lack of a Din Tai Fung in NY (or anywhere on the East Coast, for that matter) has prompted me to go on a quest in search of soup dumplings. My journey led me to Nan Xiang Dumpling House out in Flushing.
Verdict? Not bad, but... the search continues.
Dinner with Jeff and co. at Shabu Tatsu. There's nothing quite like enjoying shabu shabu on a cold night out.
