American Globs

all things yummyMy Big Gay Ice Cream Shop is an ice cream place in New York City.  I had seen pictures of there ice cream & couldn’t wait for the day I got to try it.  Now I am in LOVE with dessert.  I have a list (in my head) of all the places I MUST try & slowly I knock them off.  This was defintely on the list & I am happy I got a chance to have it because it was amazing.  It stinks when I am so excited to try something & it is a let down but this was defintely not that.  I always try to go back but it hasn’t happened yet but I know one day soon I will be visiting it again.

They have a menu of a handful of different prepame cones they have.  I choose the American Glob & it was a good choice. This ice cream cone consists of vanilla ice cream, pretzels, sea salt & a chocolate dip.  When I saw her sprinkling the sea salt I was getting nervous at first that I would not like it.  It turned out to be the perfect sweet & salty.  Normally I wouldn’t want a mix but if its going to be this perfect then I am all in.

The first picture shows what it looks like freshly dipped and yes you use a spoon to eat it. I then took another once the chocolate hardened. Just looking at these pictures again is making my mouth water.all things yummy

Madison Square Eats

all things yummyMadison Square Eats is an event that happens for a few months and is a bunch of different food vendors all in one area. It is so GREAT. What isn’t so great is that it has to many different food options & its so hard deciding what I want to eat.   IMG_7298The first time I visited this summer I went with my dad.  We got lobster rolls from Red Hook Lobster. Unfortunately it started to rain so we got them to go & ate them at his apartment.  They were still just as amazing though.  There are a few different choices of lobster rolls you can have.  I got the Tuscan Style Lobster roll which is tossed in a basil vinaigrette & my dad got the Maine style which is the “normal” one tossed in their homemade mayo.  They put so much lobster its great!

IMG_7455 IMG_7404The next time I went to Madison Square Eats I was meeting a friend for lunch.  She got 2 summer rolls form Two Tablespoon which was perfect for her because she’s very healthy & a vegetarian.  She got coconut water in a coconut to go with it from Pig & Khao.  I got the bento box from Takumi Taco which is 2 tacos & a sides.  I got the spicy tuna & spicy yellowtail taco with a charred corn salad.  We both loved our lunches.IMG_7417 IMG_7425 IMG_7439

The next time I went I was with some friends & we wanted a quick snack so it was perfect.  My friend & I shared the spicy peanut noodle bowl from Hong Kong Street Cart. We both really enjoyed it although she needed a water bottle handy because she’s not too much about spice.IMG_8947 IMG_9413 all things yummy

The last & final time I was with my dad.  I was starvvving & he had just had a bite to eat so he watched me eat, welll lets be real of course its to hard for him just to watch so I let him pick & have the side that came with my food.  I went back to Takumi Taco again but this time I tried 2 different tacos. I got the Miso Chicken Taco & the Short Rib Taco.  They were both amazing but wow did I LOVE the short rib taco.  My dad choose the beans & rice as the side.  Then for a little dessert I got the Momofuku Milk Bar milk & cornflake pudding pop. I had to try it because they don’t sell it in their stores its a speciality.IMG_9423
