An amazingly sweet experience: Restaurant Milk Bar East Village (17. June 2019)

Only lately, I was watching ‘Chef’s Table’ and there is an episode about ‘Milk Bar’ and it is mentioned that it is located right across the Momofuku Ssäm Bar. So, naturally – and also because Momofuku pointed us in the direction of Milk Bar to get actual coffee – I decided to give it a […]

When the Netflix series star runs a restaurant: Restaurant Momofuku Ssäm Bar (17. June 2019)

The Momofuku Ssäm Bar is a place I have somehow heard about but never quite so explicitly. The place features in ‘Ugly Delicious’ on Netflix with the show host David Chang (who owns this restaurant) and is mentioned in ‘Chef’s Table’ in the episode about Christina Tosi (the creator of ‘Milk Bar’) but there isn’t […]

Rather mediocre bar experience: The Stayton Room @ The Lexington Hotel (17. June 2019)

Rather mediocre bar experience: The Stayton Room @ The Lexington Hotel (17. June 2019)

The “New York Sour (knob creek bourbon, lemon, malbec)” (18.00 USD) is an interesting flavor combination – however, not my favorite drink in the world but I must say the bar is quite nice in terms of atmosphere and the waitress made sure the drinks were produced swiftly. So, if you are in for a […]

Lovely sushi tasting menu: Sushi Place @ Chelsea Market (17. June 2019)

Lovely sushi tasting menu: Sushi Place @ Chelsea Market (17. June 2019)

More because of lust than actual hunger, we decided to yet have another little dish which ended up in a “signature tasting” (35.00 USD) and started with “edamame”. The edamame was regular edamame but served cold which I liked quite a bit. The first course was the “bluefin sashimi” which was absolutely delicious and super […]

Delicious freshly prepared lobster: Lobster Place @ Chelsea Market (17. June 2019)

Once strolling through Chelsea Market and having had these amazing tacos, I was still a bit hungry and found the “Lobster Place”. When you walk in, you see a whole lot of seafood stalls and one of them serves whole lobsters. We decided to have a “small (1.5 pounds) cooked lobster” (31.95 USD) which is […]

Almost like the real experience you get when in Mexico: Restaurant Los Tacos No. 1 @ Chelsea Market (17. June 2019)

I was looking forward to go back to Chelsea Market when visiting New York this time already since the beginning. One of the reasons being the Mexican food offered there which is super close to the real thing you get in Mexico. I went for the “Carne Asada Taco” (3.95 USD per unit) with some […]

Not keeping up with the original restaurant of Enrique Olvera: Restaurant Cosme (16. June 2019)

Not keeping up with the original restaurant of Enrique Olvera: Restaurant Cosme (16. June 2019)

I had such high expectations for the second restaurant of Enrique Olvera (he is also the owner of Pujol in Mexico City which I loved when I visited it last in 2012) and I must say, I was partially disappointed. When you arrive, they make sure you’re brought to your table relatively swiftly. But then […]

Not sure if the best burger of New York actually is the best burger of New York: Restaurant J. G. Melon (16. June 2019)

I had been recommended the J.G. Melon by two individuals for the best burger before going to New York, so I thought I should give it a try. I went for their “bacon cheeseburger” (13.50 USD) which came within a few minutes and I must say that it was definitely good. Somehow though, if I […]
