NYC Mash-Up

January 9, 2012

What to do with random snapshots of your NYC travels that don’t quite warrant their own post yet you’re positively itching to share?

Put them all together in one post and give it a flashy name. So here you go, my NYC Mash-Up! Bam.


Porchetta Rolls and Key Lime Pie at The Brooklyn Flea. A fabulous market full of cheap vintage finds – definitely visit this market when you’re in NYC. And eat pork and pie.


Lunch at the Taco Truck… I long for more quality Mexican here in Melbourne – we do have Mamasita and Bluecorn, but we need more, people! Definitely smaller joints like this. This Fish Taco was delicious!


Mac and Cheese and Home. Dim lighting so no pics but definitely worth a visit for homely (he he) Southern fare.


Takeaway mixed salads at Wholefoods! Terribly overpriced but terribly delicious and fresh.


Grabbing a Taco at Snack Dragon, a little hole in the wall joint, before seeing a Poetry Slam (wow, amazing).


Brunch at Pastis. As you do. I had granola and yoghurt, not memorable hence no pics. Perhaps I should have been more adventurous with my order. But the interior was just gorgeous, see?


Pinkberry! We need more frozen yoghurt in Melbourne. Or at least, a great shop closer to me… Can someone please fix this problem?


Pork Buns at Momofoku. All the rage right now. Honestly, very likely too much information about to be shared, but the fatty meat was just too much for my system to handle. Yep. I can appreciate that they’re well made with beautiful technique and flavours. But yes. I’ll leave it at that.


Wholewheat Pancakes at The Little Owl (aka the cafe below the Friends building and where No Reservations was filmed). This was my second last day in NYC. We dragged everyone out of bed early for pancakes, french toast and home fries (which are just cubes of potato, fried). Little Owl is a really cute place.


Late night dancing and Cheerios. Cereal never tasted so good.


Ben and Jerry‘s Taste Testing. All vastly different opinions, but Chubby Hubby gets my vote.


Jazz at Cornelia Street Cafe in The Village followed by dinner at The Spotted Pig. The Jazz was fantastic, a real highlight. And the dinner was great too, from what I can recall… I had a delicious calamari salad, which photographed very poorly due to the non-existant lighting inside. I believe we also ate pie but that may have been a dream…


A little bit of a random mash-up, but a lot of awesome memories for us girls and I hope it provided some entertainment for you, lovely readers who indulge my food ramblings and travel nostalgia. Only one more NYC post to go. I don’t think I’m ready to say goodbye…

    You are the best. I don't think we had pie, but we should have..If I've learnt anything from you it's that pie is always warranted. LOVE this post. xo

    I can't believe some of the markets in America and the vintage gear at them. They are amazing aren't they. How wonderful this mash up is… and how wonderful your memories will be.

  • Michelle Chin January 9, 2012 at 11:08 pm

    I did not really enjoy dinner at pastis. should have gone for brunch instead…

  • Hannah January 10, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Darling darling darling darling, I know this post is supposed to make me miss NYC, but truly and honestly it's just reinforced how much I love and cherish and miss you! Poetry slam and jazz? Heart.

    P.S. Who needs Pinkberry when we've got Tasti D'Lite dates in our future? 😉 xo

  • msihua January 10, 2012 at 10:58 pm

    Out of all of these, I am most jealous of that taco truck!! WANTS!

  • Heidi January 11, 2012 at 8:10 am

    Anonymous – do you work for Fonda? haha if so, job well done! Love me some quinoa 🙂

    Sherilyn – the markets are amazing. I was SO tempted to buy a coffee table. A little difficult to bring home…

    Michelle – well as I mentioned I wasn't blown away by brunch, so it seems we're both a little let down. But it is a gorgeous restaurant, aesthetically!

    Hannah – that's all I'm saying!!!! well I wasn't, but I am now 😛 jazz & poetry slam were real highlights! miss you too xo

    Msihua – ME TOO!! haha 🙂
