Tiny Japanese sushi restaurant at 357 6th Ave, New York, NY is now closed.
Fish ice cream? Crazy good.
Taiyaki NYC is serving up some of the thickest, most delicious soft serve in fun waffle-like cones that are shaped like fish. I loved the green tea flavor – it brought me back to the Taiyaki desserts in Japan. The ice cream is sweet and has a subtle green tea flavor. Topped with some condensed milk and some colorful Mochi pieces, this dessert is super fun.
I also really liked the chocolate Taiyaki. It’s a must go.

Drunken Dumpling in NYC is serving up some delicious soup dumplings. They have a couple types of soup dumplings, but my favorite is the Pork Soup Dumplings. Filled with tasty light broth and a small amount of salty pork, the dumplings are a great snack. If you are in the mood for something bigger, they have an XL soup dumpling that you can wait 25 minutes for. This giant dumpling must be consumed with a straw handy!

In the New York Times building, there is an awesome Japanese restaurant serving up some delicious grilled vegetables and fish, traditionally called “Robata.” They cook and grill many the dishes in front of your eyes and it is a really fun experience in NYC.

UES China Fun closes after 25 years. The fun is over.
There is an unbelievable dessert bar by Iron Chef Kittichai located under The Bao in New York City. From the new innovative light bulb glass bubble teas to the moist, molten “Green Tea Lava” cake, Spot Dessert Bar is a definite find.
I loved the super airy, creamy, gelato-like green tea ice cream that accompanied the extremely rich lava cake. Inside the lava cake is a mixture of chocolate and a gooey sweet green tea, making a tasty center.
My other picks on the menu are “The Harvest” (a fun soft layered cheesecake in the shape of a plant) and the “Banana Chouff” (a delicate puff with interesting banana milk ice cream and sweet bruléed bananas).
The Spot Dessert Bar is my new favorite place for desserts.

I just got a chance to try the famous Doughnut Project and was very pleased. The famous “Everything Doughnut” that rocked the NYC food scene was deliciously weird. Also the “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” was outrageous.
The “Everything Doughnut” tasted like a sweet, soft version of an Everything bagel. With a slightly sweet icing and the Everything-style seeding, the doughnut is remarkably unique. The pillow-like nature of the dough makes for a delicious treat unlike any other.
The “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” doughnut is truly great. It has the same fluffy dough as the Everything but with a blackberry, purple frosting and is stuffed with peanut butter. Obviously, the combination is classic and works impeccably in this doughnut.
I highly recommend The Doughnut Project if you are either seeking something completely unique or a twist on the classic PB&J.
