Burma Love

We ate more vegetables I swear! There was a plate of pea shoots that we devoured before I remember to get a picture of it.

I really like their coconut rice. It may be because I am developing a crazy sweet tooth but now I want to make all rice coconut flavored. On the other hand, I hate coconut candy or anything with those little strings or flakes of coconut in it. I think I like the smell and sweetness of it which makes it tolerable when it is used in liquid form.

Bonus points: the server was kind enough to let me take a picture before mixing the salad. I am surprised my friends still let me go out to eat with them 🙂

State Bird Provisions

State Bird Provisions serves you food dim sum style, where they bring you a cart and asks you which item you want. Everything in the pictures was delicious. Shoutout to the nectarines dish and the steam egg in a cup!

Caution for people who hate planning ahead (aka didn’t have reservations): try to get there an hour early before opening to wait in line. Even if you don’t get seated immediately, they have limited time slots for you to come by later. Still try to get there early!

Sakagura

This place is across from Sushi Yasuda and located in the basement of a building. My favorites are the soft boiled egg with seach urchin, beef back ribs, and the black sesame creme brulee! If this is your first time here, definitely try the hot foods first.

The Modern Dining Room (MOMA)

Came here for lunch as I had the day off and wanted to do something extravagant! I got seated next to the window which definitely have the nicest views into the courtyard of the MOMA.

From start to finish, the service was impeccable. I was never short on water and the food just kept coming from the tasting menu. I ordered the 4 plates tasting menu and it was wayyy too much food for me but I ate it all anyways! I couldn’t help but keep going!

My favorite dishes was the pumpkin soup, lobster and truffle, and the dessert! The lobster and truffle had the perfect taste of seafood with a bit of a ‘salad’ twist. The dessert, Gianduja Crémeux satisfied my craving for chocolate and the wafel streusel was like eating your favorite chocolate cereal with nutella ice cream.

Try to get a seat next to the window if you can for lunch. You can people watch and eat at the same time!

Totto Ramen (51st Street)

I came to this Totto ramen a little before 2pm on a weekday and there was plenty of seating. I ordered the pork bun, uni don, and chicken ramen. The pork bun was pretty good but a tad bit more mayo than I liked. The uni don was delicious! The uni was melt in your mouth soft and whatever sauce they put in the rice really complimented the dish. The chicken ramen was very creamy and fulfilling, but the best part was the noodles. Love the al dente noodles!

Would definitely come back again for the uni don and the pork bun. For lunch, the uni don was half off!

Food in London

I went to a few restaurants in London and none of them ‘wow’-ed me. It was possible that since my budget was pretty low or that I never knew what I wanted to eat in London, I just ended up with only 4 favorite things I ate there.

Delhi Heights

This is actually my first experience at a Indian restaurant and it turned out pretty good. The curries were delicious and the meat was tender. The naan was awesome and buttery. The cottage cheese thing that was so much like firm tofu but more flavorful was pretty good. I would definitely come back to try other dishes.

Mu Ramen

Since they just opened, I would suggest getting a reservation. Otherwise, you would be waiting for a long time! Mu Ramen only accept same day reservations and the phone line opens at 3pm: 917.868.8903.
