Between my self and Mrs. Di over 400 pictures were taken of our New York City vacation. The vast majority of those are of museum exhibits. Really awesome museum exhibits but the reality is that they’re not the best taken pictures, and to anyone besides us they’re just not that interesting. That doesn’t bother me, they perfect for what they are a chronicle of our vacation. I’m not going to plaster pictures of every little thing at the Metropolitan Museum that I thought was great here, because chances are you’re not interested as interested in Roman Egypt as I am (but you should be!) What you will find is something that everyone is interested in: food
Despite all the food I ate in NYC I didn’t take as many pictures of it as I should have. You’re not going to see the delicious spicy tofu soup I had in K Town, nor the incredible spread that accompanied it. I don’t have any pictures of the delicious doughnuts we ate at Doughnut Plant; creme brulee, apple cinnamon, vanilla bean, etc. Also missing is all the wonderful food bought and eaten of the streets.
“So what do you have to show us already?”
The thing that I was most envious of during my trip was the sheer variety of ethnic cuisines to be found in the city! I’m sure that you could eat at a different restaurant featuring a different food style every day of the week for the entire year. I feel lucky living where I do, in a college town with a racially diverse population that enjoys ethnic cuisine that’s close to two major metropolitan areas but it doesn’t hold a candle to New York City…
PS – I forgot to mention the bars… There are a lot of them. They stay open ’til four in the morning. I only went to this one: McSorley’s. They have good ale.
