NYC Eats: Blue Dog Café

I walked in at a non-peak time and there were only 3-4 customers, but that already took up more than half of the store’s space.  It’s a very small shop with almost no seatings provided, making it very awkward to be called a coffee shop.  Service was ok but staff gives me the feeling that they are always very confused.  Their coffee isn’t too bad.  There is also a full meal menu.

Nice concept but I’m not too sure if it sprinkles that smoothly

Plum tart
It tasted fine except the crust was soggy and it was oversweet.

Pomegranate lemonade
Lots of ice, fill up the whole cup.

NYC Eats: Amish Market

It’s a fine food grocer with a deli and self-served buffet section.  Food was alright, pretty good quality but nothing too spectacular.  Price is quite reasonable and on the inexpensive side.

Price range: $-$$

Spaniard Roll
Jamon serrano, chorizo, manchego cheese, mesclun salad, tomatoes, oil & vinegar
The filling was fresh and of decent quality (and it wasn’t too salty!), but the bread wasn’t too remarkable.  I just remembered it as cold and chewy.  It actually turned pretty disgusting after chewing down 1/4 of the sandwich, might have something to do with the seasonings.

NYC Eats: Vanessa’s Dumpling House 大全鍋貼

Place is very crowded but line moves fast.  It’s inexpensive and quick.  I ordered the sesame pancake and while the filling was good, the bread was just well, bread.  It’s a fried up piece of white bread and it was very greasy.  I don’t really have much to complain about it because it was cheap, the filling was decent, and size was quite big.  I just wasn’t expecting a greasy sandwich bread from its Chinese name.  Perhaps I should have ordered dumplings instead.
