Our Foodie Trip to New York!! December 17 2014, 0 Comments
- We walked everywhere and were constantly being active.
- I would eat healthy for at least 2 meals per day and then indulge a little on the third one (usually dinner).
- The portions in New York are soooo much smaller than what you would get in a Houston restaurant.
- I went for a run when we were there, I find going for a run/walk/bike ride when you are in a different city is the best way to find out how the locals live. Most running trails aren’t considered a ‘tourist’ spot so you really get an idea what it would be like to live there and after all isn’t that what traveling is all about?!
Kind of the most perfect place for blogging!
Somba bowl was this large bowl of broth and noodles and then you could pick your add-ons- since my chicken meatballs had protein I just got the vegetables for my soup and this was the never-ending bowl of noodles, I only made it 1/2 way through before I had to call it quits! Getting in my run!!
After my run Ryan went for a nap and I ordered a snack! Opps this was one of my little cheat meals- luckily Ryan woke up early and ate half of it with me! One of the best 'accidents' of the trip, our dinner reservations got messed up/canceled and we really didn't know where else to go nor did we have enough time to make new plans so Ryan ordered dinner/room service from the restaurant downstairs at our hotel... not knowing that they were going to literally bring the restaurant up to us!! It was probably my favorite meals in New York! We hung out in our pjs, ate amazing food and drank yummy wine... that is until we realized we were running late to the Rockettes!!My aunt and Uncle happen to be in New York the same time we were there and they got all of us tickets to the Rockette's I LOVE broadway (who doesn't) and I have seen my fair share of shows but this was by far one of the best ever!!!
My favorite dish the whole trip- Squid spaghetti!! Low carb and was made with squid, kale, chives and broth- I will definitely be trying to remake this for the blog! The seafood dish with brussel sprouts!
And then our waiter spilled water all over our table (which Ryan and I didn't really think was a big deal) but the waiter felt really bad about it so they bought out a bunch of desserts on the house.... heck yes!! How cute is that little glass of milk?! Although we couldn't finish all of it!
Last meal of the trip- Luke's Lobster Roll!!! This was the perfect way to end our food fest!!What are some of your favorite New York restaurants? Love, Marla
