New York, part 2
So, more about New York! We arrived quite late, so on our first night, we just had a Blueberry bagel at Grand Central Station. It was wonderful, warm, chewy and filling. On the next day, we went outlet shopping, and lunch was just in the food court. Nothing to write about - but after that, we had coffee at Cinnabon as you can see in the picture above. Coffee sucked (as most American coffee does, except for Starbucks - yes, feel free to laugh now) but the Cinnabon classic was... ah, delicious. It sure hit the spot.
For a late dinner, we went to Mandoo Bar in Little Korea, and arrived just before last call. We quickly decided to just share some dumplings - fried pork dumplings and boiled seafood ones. The pork filling was much tastier, but I liked both the fried and the boiled dough.
We also got some sort of kimchi and pickled stuff to start with - neither was much to my liking, but I'm not a big fan. Service was brisk but friendly and the food tasted good. Recommended!
Here's some of the food-related stuff I picked up at Woodbury Commons - two spatulas (see that little one with a gingerbread man? so cute!), a pancake pan with animals, some multi-colored sugar sprinkles, a cookie decorating kit, a dinosaur sandwich cutter, wine stoppers, and finally a Kitchen-Aid Beater Blade. I've been wanting one of those for a LONG time!
I still have more New York talking to do, so expect a part 3 and 4 as well!
