So Ate Di and I are leaving NYC tomorrow. Man, we were literally tearing up at dinner. Tears were running down my face, people. That is how sad I am to leave this place. Right when I got used to the rush of it all and getting familiar with all the sights, streets and avenues, we have to pack up and leave. I truly <3 New York.
So let's go over the three edibles I ate here the most shall we?
Hot dogs: 4 times
Cosmopolitans: 2 times
Halal rice plates: 2 times
Hot dogs - come on! It's New York! I had one from Nathan's at a rest stop on our way to Atlantic City, two from Papaya King (the one that Anthony Bourdain went to on his show) and one at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal for breakfast this morning. LOL. I love hot dogs.
Cosmopolitans - How Sex and the City. The first one was at our first dinner at Gotham Bar and Grill and the second one was from our last dinner in NYC at One If By Land Two If By Sea. The one from Gotham was WAY better.
Halal rice plates - I love how NYC has street vendors on every block. I sure wished that SF had something like that. The first time, I had the combo with lamb and chicken. Lamb was too spicy. Second time I just had the chicken. Outrageously good.
I just want to thank all the people who we met in the last week and the total strangers who gave us suggestions on where to go, eat, and see. This is a trip to remember for the rest of my life. It's my first "big girl" trip. No family. No big group of people with me. Just me and my bestie having the time of our lives.
I'm already missing this place and I am still here. I need to come back at least one more time.
Maybe Winter in 2009.
I can't wait.
