I have so many entries for the Food Diaries, and it’s making me equally hungry and excited.

New York is chock full of amazing places to eat; from the streets of Brooklyn, all the way to Harlem you’ll be sure to find something that tickles your fancy.

Let me start off by saying, “I crossed something off my bucket list!!!1111!!!21!1!!!!” In doing that I am leading the way to taking over the world. Ha, joke. So, before I left for New York I asked if any bloggers were in the area and Joy said she was!

We made all the necessary arrangements and I found myself meeting her at Penn Station on Monday morning after coming from Baltimore. It’s a surreal experience meeting someone who you’ve only spoken to online before. This is an actual person who you’ve exchanged comments with and you’ve read all about their lives and now you’re actually meeting in real life and you’re all, “ERMERGERD, WUT!”

In which I discuss how amazing fried chicken is and nobody can tell me otherwise.

Happy June!

It has been a while since I posted, but between arriving back from New York, getting back to work and starting my new internship, I have had absolutely no time for this blog. This makes me sad, but it is what it is.

I’m really excited to write about my New York adventures avec Mutay, and since I was there for two weeks I’ll have to break it down into parts.

New York was amazing. It’s surreal that I’ve actually been now, because NY has been on my travel list for the longest time. Now I can cross it off! The thing is I’ll have to go back because there’s still many places I want to visit and explore, and you’d think 2 weeks would be enough, but it’s definitely not. NY is MASSIVE.

I managed to get most of what I wanted to do on my list, which you can read here. I was seriously happy when Joy introduced us to $1 pizza! Food in America is amazing. I have never eaten so much fried chicken in my life. Seriously.

I spent the weekend in DC, and the first meal I had was fried chicken. When we met up with Joy, we went to a place called Pies ‘n’ Thighs in the Lower East Side and I had fried chicken. I had some of Mutay’s fried chicken when we visited Harlem. Honestly, though, no regrets. Fried chicken is my god. 

There’s something about the crispiness of the skin and the tenderness of the meat that gets me going. I could probably write a book about how good fried chicken is. I’m going to wake up one day and the only words I’m going to be able to say are “Fried chicken”.

All of the food I had in NY was heavenly, from the chicken over rice at The Halal Guys on W. 53rd St to the fried shrimp I had at Amy Ruth’s; I’m surprised I’m not the size of house, right now. I have so many entries for the Food Diaries!

Of course, I also took in the sights and not just ate food. Everything is insanely massive in NY, so it was a little overwhelming. Skyscraper, much? I did get to witness some amazing views of the Manhattan skyline and the boat rides I took were so nice.

Anyway, I thought I’d give a quick update to let you know I’m here and I’m raring to get back into blogging. Watch out for my upcoming travel/food posts. Lots of exciting stuff to come 🙂
