After lots of hype from NYC friends and other fellow foodies I had to give Crumbs a try. I swung by their Midtown location on Broadway and got 4 different varieties…
(listed clockwise from top)
Madison Avenue: vanilla cake, chocolate ganache, raspberry preserves, almonds
Cookie Dough: vanilla cake, cream cheese frosting w/ choco chip cookie pieces
Peanut Butter Cup: chocolate cake, pb cream cheese frosting, pb cup topping, crushed peanuts, chocolate chips
Red Velvet: red velvet cake, cream cheese frosting, red velvet crumbs, white sprinkles
Favorite was the red velvet…I’m a sucker for red velvet and cream cheese frosting.

It was an absolutely beautiful summer day on Wednesday. I met up with two college friends in Madison Square Park to mark my second visit to Shake Shack.
On my previous visit I ordered a Shack Burger, so this time around, I got a Shroom Burger (have I mentioned I love portobella mushroom burgers?). The Shack Burger consists of Black Angus beef with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and Shack Sauce. The Shroom Burger consists of a crisp fried portobella, filled with muenster and cheddar, and topped with lettuce, tomato, and Shack Sauce.
To show you how good these burgers are, I attempted to take a photo of my friend making love to her burger (taking bites of it with such pleasure)…but she caught me and gave me a look of disgust. (Sorry Kathleen…)
It’s a shame that I have never tried their shakes, custards, or concretes yet. I’m just never THAT hungry… Hopefully one day..

Taim offers a choice between three different falafel flavors, the green (parsley, cilantro, mint), red (w/ roasted red pepper), and harissa (spicy).
I ordered a green falafel sandwich and it was mighty tasty. The falafel was cooked perfectly. The salad and hummus were in just the right amounts and complimented the falafel well.
Definitely making my way back here for more falafel!
