1st meal in NY at Menchanko Tei. The hakata ramen was so delicious that I forgot to take a picture before I devoured the whole bowl!

Where I didn't buy food. The area surrounding the cart smelled like old hot dog water.

At Choux factory (not shoe). Again, I forgot to take a "before" pic. Yep, it was that good. Beard Papa better watch out.

Sorry, no "before" pic! Shrimps alla Francais (shrimps fried in an egg batter, then bathe in a lemon butter and wine sauce) at Benito's II. It was almost too good...

A banquet of desserts at Kyotofu. All I remembered was the long wait. Ok, the food was pretty.

Zen Palate, my 1st healthy (and vegetarian) meal in NY. It was delicious (that's saying a lot, coming from a meat lover). Fyi: they're opening in Pasadena soon!!

We ran across town to Babycakes and it was so worth it.

It's sugar, diary, gluten and egg free... makes me wonder what it's made out of.

This is what $2.50 gets you at Gray's Papaya.

And they serve breakfast for $1.50!

While we're on the subject of cheap eats. They serve 99 cents pizza here, and they're 100x better than CPK!

Stranded in the Newark airport. Time for some fried corn dogs at AW.
