Churro Heaven at Boqueria UES

I stopped by Boqueria on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and had some of the freshest, chocolate-filled mini churros.

They are fried beautifully to have an ideal, golden-brown exterior. Filled to the brim with sweet, thick nutella, the churros are then topped with some powdered sugar.

There is something especially tasty about the dough they use in their churros– almost like pulling apart a delicate croissant, the churro flakes.

Order the Churros Rellenos de Nutella. Delicious!

Best Bacon in NYC by far!

Tavern62After ordering the “clothesline” Candied Bacon at Tavern 62, I may never be able to look at regular bacon the same way. The thick cut caramelized bacon has delicious sweet flavors from a glaze that has hints of honey, maple and red wine vinegar. The glaze is very thick and contrasts the saltiness of the chewy bacon. The bacon is perfectly lean, while still having a good amount of buttery fat. The ends are made to a caramelized black color and the bacon is topped with some black pepper. The dish is unreal and the restaurant as a whole serves some of the best dishes in NYC.

I also recommend the “Angry Dumplings,” which are filled with lobster and topped with a fiery chili oil based sauce.

Taiyaki

TaiyakiFish 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

Drunken DumplingDrunken 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!
