All about Foooood, NYC

Finally, the critical part, FOOOOOD 😀

Please don’t laugh at me for scheduling a trip purely for food 🙂 wait, isn’t that why I am here ?! since most of my readers are real foodies, I am gonna unfold the trip with very satisfying , delicious, fun food we stuffed ourselves in NYC.

Our trip starts at a Korean Noodle place. It is an extremely small, family-style, not fancy at all restaurant close to time square. My friend and I even missed it several times. Yet when we walk into the restaurant, oh. my. gosh. I was dazzled. that’s like a perfect lunch place for me: if I choose different dish everyday, I can do it probably for consecutively 2 months.  Full of various Asian style bento box, kimchi , sweet rice cake, glazed sweet potatos, steamed buns….I was like in the heaven.

tough decisions. My friend recommend the noodle soup. Yah for a freezing day, perfect!! So for 6 bucks, I got this:

Huge bowl of spicy seafood ramen noodles. Seriously, I mean , a HUGE bowl – it’s like twice my head size!!! That was quite fulfilling!! quite spicy, but the soup taste awesome with lots of seafood. Noodles are quite chewy – not like the one we got in supermarket at all!!

we wandered around time square for the afternoon and did some shopping in Loft. Once our stomach recovers, we headed to our ultimate destination : flushing China town!  Yeah, for some authentic Chinese food!! Do you love street food?! I do! and I really miss it! On main street Queens, can you imaging that the lights is still on around 10pm, and tons of people still having their dinner or post-dinner outside?! what a great living area!

While we walked along the main street, the aroma from different food just drag us in….

I know , not a pretty picture. but love this duck wings with traditional Chinese spice!

Pork buns with paper-thin wrap, and half juice , half minced pork in the bun. eat with ginger and vinegar. I had four of them!!!

Directly from the hot pot ( the ox stomach, sorry if I made you disgusted :-P, but they are really crunchy!), with black pepper spicy sauce

Seafood porridge, made with shrimp, calamari, topped with roasted peanuts, and scallion. perfectly salted comfort food!! can’t have enough of it!

wahahahahaha can’t be more happier! btw, did u see that plastic bag ???!! that’s a whole box of duck wings I was bring back home!

have been going with non-veggie dishes for 1 day and half, my friend and I finally give up 😛 Salad, please!

The base is mixed greens, I tossed in alfalfa sprouts, goat cheese and green stuffed olives. finally I feel less guilty about binging the day before 🙂

M’mmmmm….long time since I really indulge myself into delish food . let’s end the day with a chocolate scented candle . Hope every one has a sweet ending!
