32 Spring Street, New York
For our first meal in New York, we decided to go to Lombardi's Pizza to try its White Pizza. I think it's supposed to be the first pizza place in NYC (?) I really enjoyed the texture of the pizza crust, but the white pizza is a bit too cheesy and filing. If I ever visit this restaurant again, I would opt for one with some meat ;P

We stopped by this rice pudding place for a small snack after lunch. Because we were already quite full, we opted for the to-go size rather their regular sizes. We did try a lot of their fresh flavours though, and we were glad to have chosen the to-go one instead since we thought it actually tasted better ;P I feel it's an interesting experience, but I didn't think it's an absolutely must-go place.

After doing some shopping, we went for an afternoon snack at Bon Chon chicken. It was delicious :) We got the combo and asked for half in normal sauce, and half in hot sauce. The hot sauce was REALLY hot.... we felt like our lips expanded afterward... lol. Luckily, the sensation only lasted for a short time.

This cupcake place has the cutest, littlest cupcakes that make you want to scream like a little kid when you see them! At a price point of $5.50 for 6 tiny cupcakes, I think it makes a great snack on a shopping day around town. However, I find that despite the cuteness, the taste of these cupcakes are just nothing too special. After Steph and I had our tries, we still felt a little unsatisfied, so... we went to another cupcake place (our next stop after these pics)!
545 9th Avenue, New York
Steph and I visited this place the first time in November last year when we made a very short visit to NYC before boarding our cruise. Nevermind how pretty the cupcake looks, the taste is even better! The buttercream is to die for! One thing about the place is that it's not a very comfy place to lounge around in. Most people just buy and leave. And plus, I think this part of town is a tad bit sketchy...

I absolutely love my ramens. We originally went to checkout Totto Ramen the night before, but the line was ridiculously long so we had some Thai food instead. I was so glad to have some hot ramen soup for our Sunday's lunch especially after walking in the cold cold weather for a few hours. We all ordered the Menchanko which is basically ramen with seafood and rice cakes in a hotpot. It was amazing with the soup being slightly too salty, but I had no complaints. Ramen is just my love.
30 Rockefeller Plaza, Concourse Level
We decided to stop by Jacques Torres for some hot chocolate. The location that we went was at the shops underneath Rockefeller Plaza. There were two flavours of hot chocolate available - Regular and Wicked. I obviously had to try the Wicked, which is a normal hot chocolate with a hints of spice. It includes allspice, cinnamon, ground ancho chilli peppers, and smoked, ground chipotle chili peppers. And it was delishhhhh! :D
Hope you enjoyed reading about all my New York food adventures. I'll be making another post about the things that I hauled next :)
