I was in New York for five days. This is what I ate on day one.
–Soupy pork dumplings from Shanghai Cafe in chinatown, just as good as you get in vancouver, and handmade to order.
-A calla lily cupcake from Cupcake Cafe, which I completely stumbled upon while wandering around, slightly lost. Rich, most chocolatey cake (slightly denser than I like, but that’s how the New York cupcake is) with a tasty vanilla buttercream. The calla lily on top was just gorgeous.
-A New York City street hot dog. Just to say that I did, but I was glad to get it out of the way.
–Hot roasted almonds from a street cart, as per Miguelito’s suggestion. They cooled down a little too quickly, resulting in a caramelized nutty mess, but were delicious while warm. Three cheers for hot nuts!
