New York, New York

Im going to keep this one short and sweet and full of brilliant pictures of some of the fantastic food we ate at some amazing restaurants.

I went to New York with Mum and Elix and after much research and planning we shortlisted the following restaurants as our “must-try” ones – this is what we found :

eggs and beans 100 acres

100 Acres – we went for brunch and I ordered the delicious eggs and beans which was flavourful and chilli-hot cassoulet topped with two poached eggs. Cool and relaxed we all enjoyed our first NYC meal!




green eggs jacks wife freda


Another lovely brunch spot called Jack’s Wife Freda – a small but quirky menu in this little cafe – my green eggs were gooey poached eggs submerged in a tasty shakshuka – a puree of herbs with a kick of chilli.

All of the pictures above are from the sensational Momofuku Noodle Bar – I am a big fan of David Chang (the owner) he has taught me new things about Korean food and flavours and after tasting his food I want to know more – dishes which seem so simple tasted insanely good – Elix said the Shrimp bun (far right above) is the best thing she has ever eaten – I would agree but it came a close second to the Smoked Chicken Ramen (centre above). The hour long wait to sit at the noodle bar was a small price to pay for such a fantastic, warming meal on a rainy New York day – i only wish Mr Chang would open one in London.

smoked salmon the little owl  A little restaurant endearingly names The Little Owl was the venue for brunch one morning before a day of shopping in Greenwich. I elected for the smoked salmon on top of mini kale and potato frittati with a dollop of creamy creme freche – something new and different to try  – this was delicious and il definitely be trying it at home over the holiday. You can see in the background of the picture Mum’s pancakes and berries which she loved – they were soft and  light and not too sweet complemented by juicy berries and sweet syrup.

turkey club cookshop

We ended our trip at The Cookshop for lunch and what a treat – I have shown a picture of Mum’s Turkey Club Sandwich – it was humungous and super tasty, Elix had a tuna melt and I had crispy fish tacos – an excellent way to end our trip and prepare for the long journey home.
