Bit of a hectic day.
Have to say good-bye to Angela and Marie, pack, and meet up with Caitlin and Shannon. Thanks for all the eats and company!
Thanks for the breakfast in bed, Angela! Eggo waffles will now forever make me think of Stranger Things (2016).
Sip from El Kucho, Brooklyn, NY:
Way, way too sweet. This should be the base for a litre of horchata. Good texture though.
Dinner at Momofuku Nishi, Chelsea, NYC:
Another food trend, check! Marie and I got the bitter greens after a short discussion with our (Aussie?) waiter. Solid, solid. I think I liked this more than the burger and fries.
The burger itself was amazing in aesthetic. Just look at that “blood”. Our waiter recommended cheese, but I think that just masked the flavour of the patty. If I were truly missing meat, then this would be a good substitute for meat. But if I were a meat-eater, this burger is lacking in the chargrilled flavour although the essence of meat was spot-on. I didn’t like how the bun was cold and untoasted, and it’s not a burger I would probably get again. There are better vegetarian burgers out there.
Dessert from Molly’s Cupcakes, West Village, NYC:
I made good choices. Didn’t like how there was a chunk of nutella in the middle of the pb nutella cupcake, so if you want a chocolate pb cake, get the Ron Bennington. The two cupcakes paired nicely with each other though.
Late Night Snack at Caitlin’s:
Reuniting with Caitlin after a year!! I’m leaving for Amherst in the morning so it was a late night catch-up session with Shannon (who joined us after work). So nice to see you, even though we were both bleary-eyed and making no sense.
