N O V E M B E R  E A T S:
N E W  Y O R K


Please forgive me for I have sinned.. it's been 7 months since my last blog post! Things have been insanely busy in those months. I literally became a new person- hi! My name is Jeannie Richardson now! Although I still haven't gotten around to legally changing it..

Yes, on October 8th I married my best friend in the whole wide universe :) We're pretty pumped. Our cat, Yumi, is too.. she really loves it. Here's a picture from our big day!

Since Todd & I won't be taking our honeymoon until next Summer we decided to take a "mini-moon" to hold us over. During the summer I saw one of his favorite musicians (Seu Jorge) was going to be touring/ doing a tribute to David Bowie through the Life Aquatic movie. Obviously the Boston show had little allure compared to the New York City one! 

NY has always been a favorite of mine- mainly for the food. I nervously make a list of places to try & basically revolve my whole (world) itinerary around it. We were able to make it to almost every spot I listed- we would've thrown up if we went to all of them :)

Here are all the pictures I was able to capture:

Umami Classic @ Pokéworks

First tried this place almost 10 years ago & visited it again!
Such a neat, little izakaya :) @ Yakitori Taisho

Asparagus with Mentai Mayo

Supa Tuna Don

Yakitori! Beef tongue, hearts, livers, quail eggs, pork belly, etc!

Creamy Salmon Yakisoba

Crème brûlée Dough'ssant filled with a vanilla bean cream! UGH <3

Matcha soft serve in a churro cone

Nova Lox Bagel @ Ess-a-Bagel

Imperial Stouts @ Hops Hill

Super crunchy & fresh REUBENS 

Burrata with Anchovy Stuffed Tomatoes @ Cacio e Pepe

Food dreams come true! Cacio e Pepe tossed in a giant wheel of cheese!

I napped so hard after this

Filipino Brunch @ Maharlika Chicken & Ube Waffle 

Mango Stuffed French Toast

Arroz Caldo & Crabcake Benedict in the back! 

Yummy Aiyu Jelly Lemonade @ Baohaus

Our favorite @ Artichoke PIZZA! 

Chocolate & Walnut Cookies @ Levain Bakery (Chocolate & Peanut Butter not shown but was amazing!! By far the best cookies we've ever had)

Another treat from them: Cupcakes from Two Little Red Hens

That.. was quite the little trip! I'm hoping to start blogging more now that I don't have a wedding to plan. I want to eventually start taking better photos, too. How? With the sun setting at 4pm? Lack of that good, natural light? Somehow.

Saaanku for reading! Til next time, pus pus.
