street sweets


Ever since Amy of Amy Blogs Chow posted about the Street Sweets hazelnut gelato sandwich, it has been a goal to try it. Unfortunately it took a lot longer than I had hoped.


A few weeks ago I finally got to try it! Me and my partner in crime both got hazelnut gelato sandwiches. I got it between chocolate chip cookies (pictured above). She got her gelato between coconut cookies.

It was sooo good. Though I took a bite of the coconut sandwiched one and I think I liked that more! Well, actually, I think I would have liked the choco chip one if the cookie itself was softer (Note to self: get there earlier when the cookies are JUST baked).

Like many food trucks, their location changes daily. Check their twitter for their current location.

Oh, and their gelato sandwiches aren’t on the menu…so you’re gunna just have to ask for em!

crumbs


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.

shake shack


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 falafel & smoothie bar


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!
