Adam and I randomly had one of the Best! Weekends! Ever! (TM) this past weekend. We lucked out with a good chunk of time to spend together and nice weather. Friday night we took a long walk in our neighborhood and went to a fancy yet lackluster dinner near our apartment. Saturday we drove into Brooklyn for a bridge walk and took long walks around Williamsburg + SoHo + Thompkin’s Square Park. Sunday we took the LIRR into the city and took long walks around Koreatown + Midtown + Central Park. You’ll notice a theme there! Food highlights included…
Fantastic mochi doughnuts and black sesame iced coffee at Bear Donut.
Cinnamon brown sugar cold brew at Now or Never.
We went to a different Felix Roasting Co location each day! For an espresso tonic and a smoked s’mores latte.
We scored new flavors in two of our favorite drinks.
Best beverages of the weekend were this combo from Blue Bottle – Nola Cola (New Orleans-style coffee with vanilla and sparkling water) and a yuzu lemon fizz.
Hanoi House has a dessert window pop-up this summer and it is my new favorite place. I got a Bright Eyes Sundae – vanilla soft-serve, hot fudge, egg custard, chocolate sesame crunch, and Vietnamese coffee over crushed ice.
Egyptian food at Zooba. We loved the tamarind chicken rice bowl.
Plus hawawshi and falafel with hibiscus tahini.
Lebanese food at Au Za’atar. We knuafe plus some of the best lamb we’ve ever tasted (no photo due to lighting but it was a truly gigantic serving and we’ll be happily eating leftovers all week!).
Sushi at Maki Kosaka. We ordered practically the whole menu; both of our favorites were the bluefin toro preparations.
