NYC – The Essential Food List

Charles and I went to NYC in April 2016 and spend most of our time looking for good food and shopping! We were told by a good friend to download Yelp (the app) and it sure did come in very handy during our trip. Here’s some of our tried and tested recommendations:

This burger joint needs no introduction. We had it during our (shopping) day trip to Woodbury. It was literally a whole day of shopping, and Charles had a good loot at the end of the day.

No trip to NYC is complete without having a bagel for breakfast. We were glad we went to H&H which has been serving one of NYC’s best bagels for the last 40 years!

Great place for lobster lovers – Luke’s Lobster pride itself on serving seafood “straight from the source, prepared pure and simple, without the filler”. I had the seasonal salad as I had too many lobster rolls during the first few days of the trip. This set came with clam chowder, lobster (duh), baby kale, quinoa, chickpeas, and roasted pumpkin seeds.

Guess what happens when two Asians had too much burgers and lobster rolls? We start to crave for Asian food, of course. This place came recommended by a fellow foodie and we found the familiar taste of Korean food so comforting! Excuse the half eaten fish and broccoli, we were starving and couldn’t wait!
