Endless Eating Adventure.

Over the weekend, my cousin, Jane, came to visit since it was the last few days of her spring break. We both went on a food tour type of thing. When Jane arrived, we went to SoHo for a bit and decided to go to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf for the first time, and I just have to say that I am in LOVE. I got a hazelnut ice blended and it is not the typical frozen coffee drink that you would get at Starbucks. It's happiness in a cup. On Friday, we went to East Village and to several places. I got really full, meanwhile, Jane continued to order more food. We decided to get lunch at a Japanese ramen restaurant called Ippudo. It was a 30 minute wait for the two of us, so we walked around. Then, we decided to get smoothies at Liquiteria, which is a juicery shop. We walked around Union Square Park since we had some time left. After, we walked back to the restaurant and got our seats. The ramen is really good, it was definitely authentic Japanese ramen. When we finished, we walked over to the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop. I got the classic, infamous Salty Pimp, which is a vanilla soft serve with salted caramel dipped in chocolate on a cake cone. It's pretty awesome, but the person who made mine put a little too much salt. The next place that we went to is a ice shavery place called Snowdays. Jane and I decided to share it because the portion for a regular is too much. We got a flavor called yeti tracks, which is basically cookies n' creme, with condensed milk drizzle and fruity pebbles. The spoons are cool, pun intended, because they turned blue when it touches cold temperatures. The next place that we ordered food at is Artichoke pizza. I didn't buy a slice because I was way too full and exhausted. Then, we went to Baohaus, which is an American twist to a Taiwanese/Chinese bao, a sweet steamed bun with meat and/or vegetable. On Saturday, we went to the Upper East Side and went to Alice's Tea Cup for lunch and afternoon tea. It was a 45 minute wait, but it was worth it because I definitely felt like a little girl again having a tea party. We got The Mad Hatter, which is an afternoon tea special with a three-tiered stand with our options of 3 scones, 2 sandwiches, and a dessert with assorted cookies and two options of tea. Taking a break from eating, we decided to walk it off by going to the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art). We actually stayed until closing. We then walked around Central Park and then went to Sprinkled Cupcakes and got the Sprinkles Sundae. To be honest, it was too sweet for me because of the frosting and the ice cream combined, but it was still good. I know I'm a couple of days late with posting this, but hey, I've been busy. I can't wait to try more things, because the eating adventure will not rest.
