New York #7: Food!

I love food. This is not news. Consequently, I was massively excited about sampling the food in New York. The food was amazing when I went to Florida last year, so I was expecting great things. My boyfriend was calling me the paparazzi as I took photos of all my meals (and desserts!), but it just had to be done for blogging purposes. I ate cakes I wouldn't dream of eating at home, and some mahoosive main meals too.  Thankfully we did lots of walking to burn off the excess calories.

So here's a summary in photos of what I ate throughout the week... don't judge me!



First night - Chicken and broccoli pizza slices at The Bread Factory




Breakfast at the hotel on our first morning - the bacon and the 
apple and cinnamon cake thing were especially tasty!



Cheeseburger and onion rings at Juniors - my favourite meal!



Carrot Cake Cheesecake from Juniors. It took me three days in total to finish this!



Hot dog from Frankie's in Grand Central Station. 
Baked beans, bacon bits and barbecue sauce.



Thai Green Curry from a little Thai restaurant in the Hell's Kitchen area



Cupcakes from the Crumbs Bake Shop - mine is the 
Cookie Dough cupcake on the left




American pancakes with strawberries from the Tick Tock Diner



Pepperoni stromboli from the Villa Kitchen in Times Square



Steak burrito from Chipotle Mexican Grill. My first burrito!



Giant chocolate chip cookie from The Bread Factory



Oreo Cake Tower on our last afternoon... Sadly, I couldn't finish it all


Don't panic, I (miraculously) didn't come back 5 stone heavier. My favourite meals were the American pancakes from Tick Tock Diner, the cheeseburger and onion rings from Juniors, and the carrot cake cheesecake from Juniors. Can you recommend any other restaurants in New York?

  3. Actually salivating. I also take pictures of everything before I eat it. When I went for coffee with my friend Claire last week she actually asked me, 'Do you want to take a photo before I eat my cake?' Um, yes. Yes I do. xx
