PDQ Chicken Tenders

A team from PDQ brought chicken tenders to our office today in celebration of National Chicken Tender Day next week (July 27). The tenders came with their line of sauces, cookies, and apple slices with toffee-cheesecake dip. The PR people also passed out “stress-chickens” to us. Mine is now residing at my desk (cute!)

McNulty’s: Rare Teas and Choice Coffees

I’m an avid tea drinker (in a city full of coffee addicts 😭). I usually have at least 3-4 cups a day. While my friends and I were wandering this past weekend, I happened to notice an old-looking shop on Christopher Street, McNulty’s. I liked its unassuming appearance and I’ve been longing for a place to get quality tea, so I decided to make a trip inside (along with my friends). Continue reading

Oscar’s Place: British and Belgian

I went to a restaurant in West Village recently for brunch. I rarely go to this area (quite a long journey from my home), but it’s a great location for restaurants. My friends and I tried Oscar’s Place, a place for British and Belgian food. Continue reading

Green & Black’s Chocolate on the Street

When I was walking near Columbus Circle this morning, two women from Green & Black’s on the street gave me chocolates and an info card (excuse the bandage; I cut myself on a tuna can and aluminum foil while cooking last night 😦 ). I’ve noticed the company’s signs along the 59th St. subway station walls too. Maybe this area has their main target demographic? It’s a British chocolate company. I’ve never heard of it until recently.

The chocolate was good. I prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate (and I don’t enjoy white chocolate), so I lucked out with getting dark chocolate with sea salt. And I like their watercolor-esque wrapping.

Beyond Sushi: A New Dine-In Location

Last night, I went to the preview of a new Beyond Sushi location opening up at Herald Square on May 10. This new restaurant will be different from the other Beyond Sushi places in the city because it is a dine-in restaurant with table service and a bar. I attended with a friend (who eats a mainly vegetarian diet). I honestly had low expectations because I’m a meat-eater and when I see the word “vegan,” I kind of associate it with something tasteless or not very satisfying.  Continue reading

We’re working through lunch today and my editor treated our team to a meal from The Kati Roll Company, a fast-casual restaurant chain (most locations in New York; one location in London) making Indian food more accessible and portable for consumers.  Continue reading

Roman Street Food Now in NYC

I learned today at work that NYC now has trapizzino—a pizza pocket sandwich that is apparently a popular Roman street food. It’s available at Trapizzino in the Lower East Side.

I’m making a mental note to check this place out once I can eat carbs again, haha.

You can check out a gallery that features Trapizzino here.
