What’s the most important thing when you’re traveling? No, not seeing new things. No, not relaxing or shopping or wearing cute clothes. It’s EATING! 😋 Or at least it is for me haha. This is why I’ve decided to start my NYC Girls Trip series with some of the AMAZING food we ate.
In no particular order, here we go!
Shake Shack: As a strong proponent of In-n-out (a must when you grew up in SoCal), I was equal measures intrigued and suspicious of this place. I am going to preface this by saying that I will not be choosing a favorite because I feel like these are very different burgers and fries and it would depend on your personal preference. With all the being said, this was an amazing meal!! I went for a classic Shack burger, fries, and a vanilla shake and it definitely lived up to the hype. 10/10 would eat again.
Parm: This was a pretty casual Italian eatery with a love for sandwiches. I ate a meatball parm hero and it spoke to my Italian heritage so loud I think it was audible to everyone in the restaurant. In all seriousness, this was a darn good sandwich. I had to stop myself from finishing it because if I had finished I would have had to be rolled out of the restaurant. In case sandwiches aren’t your thing, our waitress recommended the baked ziti which sounded delicious as well.
Le Moulin a Cafe: Brunch is a must while on vacation with your best friends. On our last morning in New York we strolled to this little French cafe for brunch and it was almost as if we had strolled right in to Paris. I had a steak and eggs breakfast and it was amazing. It took a lot of self restraint not to lick the plate. Two of my friends ordered French toast and I was equally impressed by this dish as well (stolen bites taste better and I won’t be swayed!).
I know what you’re thinking, “Kim, you didn’t talk about bagels or pizza!”. You’re right I didn’t and it was purposeful. I strongly believe that pretty much any bagel or slice you eat in NYC will be delicious (I know mine was) and that’s why I didn’t want to talk about those places because they are so quintessentially NYC that you know their going to be good no matter where you go.
Tell me places that you loved when you were in NYC in the comments!
