There are three places in the Lower East Side that are considered New York institutions and this is one of them. A knish is a Jewish American food made famous in New York. It was here that I also forgot my camera and left it sitting on the communal counter right by the door of the bakery.
It was just under 2 weeks in Follow Me Foodie to New York and I was slaughtering the dessert scene, let alone the food scene. This was another recommendation from the head chef at Jean-Georges who happens to have a major sweet tooth, so I went in with confidence!
It was a modern replication of the Japanese country side and how fishermen would grill fish along the shore-side over an open flame by their boats. With fresh seafood surrounding the “boat”, the chefs here cook the food in front of their customers and transfer the dishes on long rowing ores.
I’m a huge fan of exploring street food in every new place I visit. It tells me a lot about their food culture. To really get a taste of what a city has to offer, you have to go across the board and experience high and “low” end dining and everything in between. Follow Me Foodie to New York Street Food!
New York is full of award winning delis that claim to have the city’s “best pastrami sandwich”. I asked a handful of trusted New York foodies some of their favourites and Eisenberg was one that came up often along with 2nd Ave Deli. A celebrity favourite in Manhattan.
I really wished I did some previous research because I thought the thing to order was the famous Cuban sandwich. That was only half the equation though and it turns out I missed the “Best Corn on the Cob” in the city. @$#%. Seriously?!
If you’re a sake connoisseur or sake-lover then this is likely your idea of heaven… although it feels like entering hell. Forget the beers, this was over 200 bottles of affordable to premium sake on the wall.
That’s a bold statement and to base your entire brand on one thing leads everyone to have high expectations. “The Best” anything in the world is a courageous claim, and it’s one I had to check out for myself. So was it really “The Best Chocolate Cake in the World”?
