Its been a while since I posted a blog post and I couldn’t allow another month to pass by without posting something! The last weekend in July I was finally able to visit one of my besties a.k.a Roomie in NYC. It has been such a long time since we actually hung out, I was so glad our schedules permitted us to play catch up.
Once I left the airport and saw the New York train/subway it hit me I was officially in NYC.
After years of saying I would go I was actually there, not only was I there but I was there with one of my best friends! There was so much culture and art in random places through out the city I had to just take it all in I wish I had time to photograph it all!
I fell in love with the architecture and skylines.
The first day we ate Vietnamese food at a new spot in Brooklyn. The curry chicken was soooo good !
It rained a lot that weekend, but I refused to have my trip spoiled by rain despite the fact I didn’t have an umbrella. I walked in the rain because I’m not a quitter and because I’m a fatty.
Roomie was a good sport and walked with me around the city in the rain so I could buy a slice of authentic thin crust NY Pizza.I literally turned down 3 other places before choosing a spot. I was on a mission I wanted that pizza but I wanted it to be good! We were on the Upper East Side when I finally said ok I want to eat here.
We ate and laughed and ate some more. So many choices and options for food it’s a foodie paradise. I went to The Bagel Store to have the infamous “Rainbow Bagel”. Not only did it rain but it was very hot that weekend. I was so glad to see the ice cream men out in full effect. The big kid in me had to get a sprinkle cone !
Regardless of what city or state I am in brunch is always on the menu on a Sunday, this weekend was no different. This little spot was quaint and rustic I loved the french toast !
I went to KATZ’S Deli this stop was for my dad this deli has been featured on several foodie list of must visit places in NYC. Their sandwiches are enormous,they slice the meat right in front of you and also let you sample while you wait. The meat was tendered and well seasoned. My dad would love this spot.
Besides gaining 5lbs I browsed a few stores. I could have easily blown this months income, but I didn’t. I told Roomie I didn’t come to shop and she did pretty good keeping out of stores although we did go to the largest H&M US I mean I had to see it I am a fashionista.
After my trip it is safe to say I ❤️ NY and plan on making another trip soon ☺️
