So Much Food…Bis Co Latte, Burger Joint, La Colombe Torrefaction, Bonbon Chicken, and Ronnybrook Milk Bar

[Translate] Holy jeebus, I ate so much freakin’ food last week just reviewing my photos on Flickr. It’s scary…and it’s a good thing I paced myself and this week but I’m not going to write about that yet since the week’s not over. Anyways, here’s a week’s worth of food (again). Strap yourselves and hang on for the ride! Last Tuesday morning I went to Bis Co Latte mainly for biscotti, those wonderful twice-baked Italian cookies. I know biscotti is not an equivalent to donuts or muffins but really, I don’t care. I just want to sink my teeth in..

Eating Lunch Like Royalty at Jean Georges

[Translate] When I ate this particular lunch at Jean Georges on Tuesday, I realized my blog’s birthday is a year and two days old (if you include the time when I was at Blogger and I moved to my current address here)…it’s just beginning to crawl to its infant stage and hopefully progresses to grow to a slightly normal child. I said “slightly normal” because it’s a food obsessed child. Well, I guess it’s my unintentional splurge birthday present to my blog. Even though, I’m actually the one who is physically eating the food. But still “Happy Birthday!” to my..

Brunch at Prune; Shake Shack, Ninth Street Espresso, and Picnick

[Translate] As you can tell these past recent weeks, I’m writing pretty much an average about a post a week. It’s going to be like this for a while just because I’m snowballed with school and I’m dreading the LSATs! Good lord help me on the latter. I’m scared the wits out of me for this one test for the sake of law school. Anyways, I’m writing the aforementioned on the title but skipping out on Jean Georges just because that restaurant deserves its own post. Even though you see or seen the photos on my Flickr gallery. On Saturday,..

A Week of Food, Part 2: Burger Heaven, Kyotofu, and Meeting Serious Eats

[Translate] On Wednesday, I was craving for a burger for lunch. I don’t know why exactly but I just want some juicy ground beef sandwiched in a good, soft hamburger bun. Since it’s almost 12, I know it’s going to be crowded to try Burger Joint since it’s not a huge space to start with. (I know this since I visited the space but didn’t try anything.) What I ended up deciding is to try Burger Heaven. You might be wondering why the heck would I try a small chain burger at all. Well, two of my male friends, Ariel..

A Week of Food…Part 1

[Translate] School’s back in session for me ever since the past Monday and that means I’m spending more time in the city eating out besides school and studying. And I took the eating portion a bit seriously this week since I felt depraved from the food scene since I was working and/or studying almost the entire summer in Queens. Ahhh…it’s good to be back in Manhattan! Since a week is a lot to cover, I’m splitting this up into two posts for the sake of not boring you to death with my ramblings and not to let the post take..

A Birthday Lunch at Asiate and Dessert at Dumbo

[Translate] The past Monday, my friend Dave wanted to celebrate his birthday early since he’s going down south to Florida during the actual time, so being a good friend I ate lunch with him at Asiate. Everything is so…pretty and elegant. The views of Central Park and midtown Manhattan is pretty awesome as well. Interior Reflection (more…)

That Is Some French Macaron…

[Translate] For the past week I went to Madeline Patisserie in Chelsea since I remember reading recently from the NY Times that they sell macarons (Please don’t confuse them with the coconut macaroons; this is the almond meringue based cookies sandwiched with ganache or buttercream, ok?); one of my multitudinous food obsessions and my hopes to find a good one in NYC that doesn’t suck. I went here on two separate occasions. Why? Because from my first visit there, it was they were still baking it and the weather was crummy. Madeline Patisserie (taken on the second visit) Le Menu..

A Day of Fooding (mostly with Helen)

[Translate] I apologize for not writing for a while, even though you see the photos from my Flickr photostream on my sidebar and the page itself, it’s just because I’m busy with work, studying for LSATs, and now my family is going through a rough time because my mother’s seriously ill. I’m just writing to you guys now for the sake of not focusing on my mother’s situation and keeping myself sane. So, here’s what happened on Monday, when things were generally mirthful. It’s been an awful while for me to have a real day of fooding. What I mean..
