Vacay: NYC

Posted in art, food, vacay by krisyee on January 19, 2012

My Christmas present from the boyfriend finally arrived! Last weekend we took our trip to NYC. The last time I was there was back in 2006 where I roamed the streets by myself and only stayed for one night. Since the boyfriend’s friend lives over there, we were fortunate enough to have her bring us around to great food places and bars. And of course we had to watch the NFL playoffs.

We arrived early Friday morning, took a nap and woke up on time to head down to Chinatown for lunch. It was my first time at Joe’s Shanghai and for me, the soup dumplings were delicious.

After lunch we headed down to The Met. Four hours there and I still didn’t walk around the whole museum.

The Buddha of medicine.

Details. All about the details.

After The Met it was time to get ready for dinner. The restaurant we were trying to go to had a 30 minute wait. So we walked a few blocks down and ended up at a restaurant called Kiku Sushi. Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures because I was busy stuffing my face with deliciousness. After dinner we headed to Banc Cafe and Fat Baby for drinks.

The next morning the boyfriend and I went to watch The Lion King. Such a good show!

Afterwards we headed down to Coopers Craft & Kitchen to watch the Niners game. From there we headed to get Artichoke Pizza. The artichoke pizza was really good but heavy. I wouldn’t be able to do two slices the way I can with regular pepperoni pizza. We also tried the margarita and crab pizza.

The rest of that night was crazy. We hit up a lounge/restaurant called Iguana. My friend Shirley came out to meet me but by the time she got there I was already drunk.

We got chicken and rice from a popular halal cart but unfortunately I fell asleep after two or three bites. 😦

The next morning we headed to brunch at Essex Restaurant. Decorated with tennis balls on the walls.

This place got packed quick. I’ve never seen so many people waiting for brunch. Luckily our friends had reservations.

After brunch we headed down to the 9/11 memorial. Being from a different city, let a lone on the opposite side of the country, you don’t realize how that day was for people living in New York. In the museum they had photos a long with video footage from that day.

1,000 cranes.

A flower left on the name of someone that was lost on 9/11 at the memorial fountains.

From there we headed back to the hotel room to relax a little bit before going to watch the Giants vs. Packers game. After watching the game at a local bar, we went to get some Korean fried chicken from Mad for Chicken. I believe that’s what it’s called at least. Haha but those were some pretty good chicken wings. The bartender also gave us free shots and I must say they were fuckin delicious. Yes. Fuckin delicious.

The last stop that night was Rockefeller.

I had to stop by Times Square to get nuts. Yea, that’s right. Nuts. Every time I’m in NYC I have to get the street nuts! Honey roasted almonds and peanuts. YUM.

We had to leave for the airport by 8:30am so our last stop before leaving was Doughnut Plant. We woke up at 7am to get it!

Peanut butter & Jelly donut.

Crème Brûlée! We also had a Tres Leches donut too but I didn’t take a photo of it.
