Flushing, Corona Park, East Village, SoHo and Greenwich Village – Food Tour 2010
Hello! Tis a bit late, but here’s the as-promised food tour! My good friend Seth decided to organize this for selfish reasons of his own. He was dying to try/go back to a few places. It turned out to be really selfless in the end because everything we had was very delicious and I learned about/explored places that I hadn’t really been to before.
We started out in Flushing on 40th and Main. The first bit of deliciousness: peking duck in a steamed bun. All for a $1!
We then took the 7 train to Corona, where we walked about a good 20-25 minutes to one of the best (and tiny) empanada places in the city. Empanadas Cafe. They also have their own homemade frozen treats! (as shown by Holly)
We asked them for 14 random empanadas to try. We then walked a couple of minutes to Corona Park and sat down under the shade of a tree to share and enjoy. I had no idea that we were right by the World’s Fair site. It was a lovely day.
Walking back to the 7 train, we made our way to the East Village for some mac and cheese at the always delicious S’mac on 12th street and 1st ave. We ordered a taste of a few different kinds.
The next stop on our journey was the Peanut Butter Company. We tried a variety of different sandwiches which were the delicious. The only disappointing part was the bread. It wasn’t the freshest and seemed a bit stale. I ended up buying a jar of their white chocolate peanut butter on the recommendation of a few people.
Our last stop on the tour was the Waffles and Dinges truck that was parked on Christopher Street and 7th Ave. I decided to get the Lièges waffle with Nutella and powdered sugar. Best. Decision. Ever.
And that delicious photo is what ended up in my belly and also concluded our food tour. It took a couple of hours to get around, but it was well worth it. I had a great time and we’re thinking about doing it maybe twice a year if possible.
I know I also said I would update about planting on my patio, but that didn’t happen. I bought all the stuff, so I will be definitely doing that tomorrow.
Hope everyone had a good memorial day!
