NYC Eats: Shake Shack

✣ Top pick ✣

It’s always on my to-go list.  Finally tried it and I liked it.  It may not be as good as a restaurant quality burger, but it’s one of the best chain-store burger.  The bun is sticky enough to contain all the mess without getting soggy from the juice.  I’m pleasantly surprised the shakes have just the right amount of sweetness and are not oversweet.  Be prepared line is always going to be long no matter what time in the day you arrive (it does move fast though)

NYC Eats: Fat Witch Bakery

✣ Top pick ✣

I am not a huge fan of buying brownies because (1) I don’t like chocolate (2) they are ALWAYS oversweet.  However I was swept away by the Fat Witch Bakery the first time I tried their sample.  It is perfectly fudgey without being oversweet.  This is one of the best brownies that you can buy.

NYC Eats: Two Little Red Hens

An American bakery, with truly exceptionally well made cakes!  The cakes are moist and light, but very fine-crumbed.  The cakes and the frosting have just the right amount of sweetness to it.  Their frosting also very well made.  They are light and creamy.  Their cakes are also very beautifully decorated (professionally, not in a cheap homemade project way).

0811 Boston Cream, Red Velvet, and Carrot cupcakes (Two Little Red Hens)Boston cream cupcake
It’s actually a ganache topping, so it’s not messy to eat.  It has a small center with cream fill in, so it’s not going to explode everywhere when you bite into it.

Carrot cupcakes
with walnuts!
Yes they really have walnuts in the cake, and carrots too 😆

Red Velvet Cupcakes
with cream cheese frosting!

NYC Eats: Ninth Street Espresso

It’s unbelievable how hard it is to find a real coffee shop in Manhattan.  Ninth Street Espresso roasts their own beans (?) and their coffee is very well brewed.

0811 Ninth Street Espresso 0811 Macchiato (Ninth Street Espresso)
It has a good crema and the coffee has an interesting complex flavour.  It is somewhat nutty but there is a hint of fruitiness in it.

NYC Eats: La Bergamote Pastries

They serve all kinds of pastries and savoury items such as quiche.  Excellent quality and very well made.

0811 Tarte au fruits & Americano (La Bergamote) 0811 Tarte au fruits (La Bergamote)
Tarte au fruits
Raspberry and Kiwi
Crust is buttery and crunchy.  There is a jello layer overlaying the fruits.  Overall it is just the right amount of sweetness and the fruits are not too sour.

I did think it tasted weird.  It reminded me of rusty tap water for some reason.  Very bland and watered down.
