We were in New York City for a handful of days in January this year and tried some great food. Here’s our favorites!
To know: We’re vegetarian. The regular kind. No meat but yes please to dairy and eggs.
BareBurger was great! It’s a burger chain. Super cute restaurant if you want to sit in and eat. We took ours to our hotel room because it was super close and pretty much scarfed everything down so fast that I barely got a picture.
They had a bunch of choices for burgers from patties (meaty meaty ones if you prefer!) to sauces. We also got fries, onion rings, brussel sprouts, and a bunch of dips. There were also milkshakes but they didn’t make it into a picture.
Phong is always on the hunt for noodles and was really pleased with these ones.
Dumplings! I am such a sucker for dumplings. I could eat them all day long. I have before.
And while Phong was after the noodles, I was after these. Disco fries. DISCO FRIES. French fries in a RAMEN GRAVY with kimchi on top! This was the first time I ate fries with chopsticks and have realized that if you don’t need to eat your fries with chopsticks, your fries are missing something–ramen gravy and kimchi. This was one of my favorite eats on the whole trip.

All vegan! I know, I was skeptical too, but while vegetarian isn’t always vegan, vegan is always vegetarian, and we love a restaurant with more than one thing we can order!
There were also doughnuts in this mix, to be found in the previous blog post…
My burger had jalapeno macaroni and cheese on it! And no, I have no idea what it was since it obviously couldn’t be actual cheese (vegan), but I don’t ask how the wizard does his magic. I just eat it.
Phong’s burger was called a Sage burger and, I’ll admit, it was better than mine. Though I love the idea of jalapeno macaroni and cheese, it was the kind of hot that stains your mouth and makes other flavors impossible to taste.
Don’t get me wrong though, I ate the whole thing happily, but I also stole a couple bites of Phong’s.
More posts to come! Likely food related. Why is that all I take pictures of? I have more pictures of cake than I do of my own face. But let’s be honest, would you rather see 10 cakes or 10 pictures of my face? It’s cake right? I don’t blame you, I pick cakes too. <3
