Self confessed foodies (fatties really!) we are incredibly passionate about food! We love discovering new restaurants and new flavors. As soon as we arrived in New York we made a beeline for all the treats the big apple had to offer.
We tasted new incredible cuisines such as soul food and we found quirky restaurants that served up some of the tastiest meals we’ve ever had. Here are a few spots you HAVE to try if you visit New York.
Lighthouse Fish Market– You select your fish and your veggies and you choose how they make it for you. We had a mixed seafood platter with collard greens and mac and cheese. We pretty much inhaled everything.
The Boil– Seafood by the pound cooked with Cajun spices. We had a pound of crayfish and a pound of prawns with potatoes and sweet corn. It comes in a huge plastic bag and you’re given gloves and bib so you know it’s going down! Victor’s favorite meal of the entire trip.
Spot Dessert Bar – Desserts inspired by both American and Asian flavors. We honestly think this is some of the best desserts we’ve ever had! Like ever! Inventive presentation won us over too. We had the Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake, Coconut Monkey bread with Coconut Ice Cream and Golden Toast.
Boka– Korean fried chicken packed with flavor. We had the wings and drumsticks combo that was just finger licking good! We would’ve been completely satisfied with the chicken alone but we also had the Kimchi pancake which was delicious.
