Today’s post is dedicated to food. It’s no secret that I love food. There aren’t many things in the food world I don’t enjoy eating. if you’re really lucky you’ve seen my burger dance or have heard my hashbrown song (Danielle can definitely vouch for me!) Anyways, I love food and New York City has yet to lead me down a road of disappointment for my taste buds.
The first week in the office my boss ordered us an amazing lunch from a cafe nearby and I can honestly say it was the best turkey sandwich I had ever eaten. I’m not even sure what was on it, but it could not been more delectable.
Later in the week, the girls from work and I went out to an incredible Mexican restaurant (I touched on this in an earlier post). Also, as I mentioned before Mexican isn’t even my favorite so for me to say I genuinely loved every bite is a big deal!
Then today, for lunch I was starving and craving Chinese. It’s kind of an old tradition at my old Safeway. I used to take “egg roll breaks.” They’re just so delicious! Especially with sweet and sour sauce. So Chinese was an easy decision. Have to keep tradition even in a new city right?? So I went to our office manager and picked up the menu file folder. Let me start by saying it’s pretty massive! There are probably 50-100 take-out menus of any food you could possibly want to consume within ten minutes of the office. The only decision I had to make was which Chinese restaurant!
I ended up choosing a place called Chef 28 from down the street and ordering one of their lunch specials, which was a bargain at $6.50. To finish off my order I added on one of their home-made iced teas and boy can I tell you that was a great decision! Oh the best part about New York restaurants? They all deliver right to your office or anywhere you are for that matter! Even better? Most of the delivers are free after a minimum purchase price.
I was pleasantly surprised with a cute little bag stuffed with food! Well worth the $10 it ended up costing me, tip included. You can check out my picture to get a glimpse of its deliciousness. Even though the menu item was my usual, Chinese-American food I have had while in New York still has a very different taste of that I’ve had on the west coast. I can’t exactly put my finger on it, but it almost tasted more authentic. I haven’t quite figured it out yet, but all I can say is two thumbs up to New York City food!!
