The Insanity of Last Friday…(chocolate, ice cream, booze and tapas)

[Translate] I know there’s a huge gap of time between my dinner at Alta and what happened on last Friday. The reason is that I’m working in Queens. Yes, I know it’s the U.N. sitting in one borough but the area where I’m working at is near a mall…and the food scene seems very depressing to say the least. Moving on to last Friday…I have planned a huge outing for most of my close friends, most of them are from St. John’s and there’s Ariel who was the newcomer of the bunch, but he’s cool in my book. What I..

A Divine Dinner at Alta

[Translate] I have heard soo many great things from foodies about Alta that I was dying to go there for the past few years. The two things that held me back was the fact that they only serve dinner and I don’t have anyone to eat out with me. That’s until I went there a few weeks ago, my friend Dave was willing to come along with me. Entrance to Alta (more…)

Food Happenings of Last Wednesday…

[Translate] I’m still waaay behind on posting my fooding since I’m still stuck with last week and this week is ended…eh. I’m sorry. It’s just my day job is killing me with stress and I’m tired therefore the lack of writing. Moving on… Last Wednesday, I went to the Financial District for Dine Around Downtown. (more…)

My Last Breakfast at Bouchon, Birdbath, and Cones

[Translate] I started my morning off at Bouchon Bakery for one last time. Most of their morning staples are there, from croissants to sandwiches, the few changes to their menu for summer, they had a berry tart and something that caught my eye for breakfast, the Apricot Elderflower Danish ($3.25). Doesn’t that sound tantalizing? (more…)

A Night of Haute Cuisine, Great Cocktails, and Greasy Bar Food

[Translate] I know I haven’t written something significant for a while. I’m sorry. It’s just the finals were driving me mad and I had to put blogging on hold. I kind of regret it now since I’m backed up for a good week’s worth of food and so much photo editing (Argh…). I want to shoot myself in the foot for doing so. But I’m fine and school’s over. Please note, I’m skipping a bunch of food stuff that happened since Wednesday night was the most unusual experience I ever had in my life. In a good way. To keep..

Lunches at Nathan's and Lassi

[Translate] Before I start talking about what happened last week, I want to say that I haven’t been able to write anything for the past couple of days because of finals. Yes. The torment that all students of any age especially from high school on, feel the crush of stress and pressure to do well. I’m technically done, except I need to write a philosophy paper but I should be fine…I hope. Moving on. The most furthest I have ever been from the city happened on the week before my finals. I don’t think that statement made any sense or..

Finally…I Ate Their Sliders

[Translate] If anything besides macarons, my recent obsession for the past few months is to get my hands on Bouchon Bakery’s cute, petite Wagyu beef sliders that Ed Levine and Robyn had. The only thing that killed me is that they don’t serve them everyday and most of the time whenever I ask the host about their sliders, it’s not served that day. That is until now. This is the first time I ever eaten from Bouchon’s Bakery’s café/restaurant. All of the previous posts that I’ve written about Bouchon were only from their take-out. After I’ve been seated and perused..

Everything Eaten before the Kyotofu Dinner…and other stuff

[Translate] I know I should have posted everything I’ve eaten on Thursday in one LONG post but I wasn’t motivated since I had to write journals for one of my classes that ended up to be twenty pages long. My brain dried up of any use of any prose, hence my lack of writing for that portion of the day and just write about the Kyotofu dinner. On Thursday morning, I wanted a latte just because I was terribly disgruntled with what happened on Tuesday. So, I went back to my first (coffee) love, Joe on Waverly Place, in the..

A Night of Kyotofu with a Tofu Skeptic

[Translate] On Thursday evening, I had dinner with a foodie friend of mine, Ariel, who doesn’t like tofu at all. He considers tofu as food from “the dark side.” I told him tofu isn’t disgusting at all, he just had awful tofu from various eating establishments. So in ways for me to force encourage him to like tofu, I ended up making a deal with him that I’ll pay for dinner at Kyotofu. I’ve told my dilemma with one of the co-owners of Kyotofu, Nicole and after several conversations, we’ve agreed to a menu for the evening in hopes to..
