I managed to eat a truly impressive amount of peppermint and/or Christmas themed food!
Blank Street‘s candy cane cold brew was possibly my favorite coffee of this year!
The coquito cold brew (with two shots of espresso) from 787 obviously isn’t bad either.
Health-Ade Holiday Cheers kombucha.
Peppermint vodka seltzer, yes, I dyed it green.
Amazing tiramisu eggnog at Dante.
Peppermint ice cream (12/10) with peppermint chocolate quinoa bites.
Adam’s favorite bakery in New York is probably Blacksmith’s Breads. He sweetly surprised me with a pretzel bread.
Greek yogurt bowl with tiger syrup, granola, and persimmon.
Good-not-great but incredibly convenient microwave rice rolls.
Very Spicy Vegan Dan Dan Noodles from Very Fresh Noodles. It wasn’t actually that spicy (more numbing than hot) but the noodles were unbelievably fresh, bouncy and perfect.
This was the best meal I’ve made this year. Roasted broccoli / roasted red onion / roasted white beans / dried cherries / best ever sauce; in the food processor – parsley, roasted jalopeno, Korean chili flake, smoked almonds, smoked sardines, parmesan, honey, garlic, salt, evoo, and a bit of water / and I topped my bowl with candied jalopenos.
