    Best of NYC: Food

    I have only been in China for about three days and I’m already getting nostalgic for New York City. New Yorkers may be loud, aggressive, and insane, but you can truly be whoever you want to be in this city.  There really isn’t another place in the world quite like it.

    I’m also thinking about so many of the great meals shared with new friends, old friends, and school buddies that I reconnected with. As I think about all of the delicious food and wonderful company I encountered this summer, I feel it’s only right that I share some of my favorite spots in the city for a bite to eat.

    Bare burger has a ton of organic variety… from Bison burgers, to several kinds of veggie options, to sandwiches and wraps. I will definitely be bringing my family here the next time they are in town!

    If you feel like getting some beers and grub in Korea Town, Mad For Chicken, makes delicious chicken marinated in hot & spicy and garlic sauces. You can also order a beer tower. Seriously people, it’s a tower of beer that lights up in different colors.

     My favorite new ice cream place is a 1950’s themed parlor in Williamsburg (near the water where they have The Brooklyn Flea) called Oddfellows. I would go back and get their awesome flavors like Thai Iced Tea and PB&J (see picture above).  The PB&J is made by freezing the condiments with liquid nitrogen to keep them separate from the vanilla base. At Sundaes and Cones in Manhattan, the taro, green tea, and guava ice-creams are must tries! GROM has the best gelato in the city. Paris Baguette in K-Town has a fantastic green tea shaved ice with toppings for days.

    Xian Famous Foods is the place to go for inexpensive spicy noodles and their insane pork buns. Ohmygod their pork buns are just bursting with flavor.

    For cheap, tasty Vietnamese fare, I would head down to Nha Trang in Chinatown and order their shrimp summer rolls, pork chop, and chicken pho.

    I have not found a place with more choices and toppings than Kung Fu Tea. I love that you can adjust the amount of sugar you want in your boba. I’m obsessed with their kung fu green milk tea and taro milk tea. For a sit down place, I always go to the Teahouse from Hong Kong, St. Alps.

    What are your favorite places to eat in the city?

    Stay tuned for more posts about where to drink, exercise, and shop!

    Cooking with @GoOrgreenic

    One of the things that I don’t like about cooking is the cleaning up process.  I love my new orGREENic cooking pan because it is simply the easiest pan to clean I have ever used!  It is a ceramic pan that is designed to cook with little to no oil for something wayyyyy healthier.  It works because it’s non-stick and perfect for stir fry veggies and cooking chicken!

    I decided to make Chicken Pineapple Pizza and I thought it was a perfect opportunity to try out my orGreenic pan!  The food never sticks.

    I love TV gadgets but this one has worked better than other I have used.  Here we go… look at this.
    1st: Cook the Chicken

    2: Spoon the chicken onto the crust (I used a pita!)

    And Voila!
    Look how easy it was to clean.

    HCB #25: Um… Na’an? YUM!

    Summer comes around and I can’t help but love using my hands when eating my food… I think it’s kinda hot to watch a man or woman eat food with their hands, sauces dripping down their fingers and hands, and the almost frantic licking that comes from trying to keep the juices off their…clothes… oh yeah lol
    Yummy yummy yummy, I got Na’an in my tummy! LOL I’m silly sometimes 🙂
    Spicy chicken, steamed garlic bok choi and warm na’an… mmm
    Got my hands nice n dirty, and then clean again!
    Happy Cookin lovelies!
