I grew up in New Jersey and fondly remember the taste and flavor of Dairy Queen being a unique and special treat on a summer afternoon.
In my opinion, what makes New York special is that we get transplants from all over the world: Ramen from Tokyo, check. Upscale Russian from Moscow, check. Macarons from Paris, check. American ice cream chain, check....check.
We, as Americans and New Yorkers can be just as excited about this addition to our culinary landscape of our city as we are about a fast food chain from the Philippines bringing frozen sweets to Queens.
It's nostalgia, it's flavor, it's special. And instead of shunning it, why not embrace it. Recently New Yorkers have opened their eyes to the glory of an Aussie meat pie via the Pie Face franchise...and I say hooray! What makes our city special is that we are full of chains and local eateries, from all over the world. Let's not leave an American classic out! New York has everything, and I am thrilled to be first ON line for my oreo blizzard!
Lung Moon Bakery on Mulberry! 4 luscious, large mooncakes for around 16 bucks in a beautiful red bakery tin. To celebrate, I have the original lotus with salted egg yolk, black bean, green tea with egg yolk and a new mixed nut and coconut. All are delicious and the service is great!
i was just here yesterday for lunch! i had the paris, a sandwich almost too good! i saw that caesar being devoured next to me and it looks like heaven!
I live right above Canton Kitchen. My apartment building is literally right next door. Nothing is so good there.....But it's serviceable at best.
Definitely eat Indonesian food in Elmhurst, Queens. Upi Jaya, Java Village, and Minangasli are all authentic and delicious!
not a sweet, but the matcha baguette from takahachi bakery is to die for...perfect when toasted and spread with some kaya jam!
Lovely write-up on a lovely bakery!
