[ january 2014 / staten island. new york ] was with mama inside a convenient store around staten island and she said buy something i like. so, i got me a haagen-dazs pistachio ice cream. haagen-dazs used to be here in manila but unfortunately their stay wasn’t a success. sad, right?
[ january 2010 / manhattan. new york. ] it was the day after they announced that the polar vortex will happen. i took my brothers around manhattan and it was freeezing cold. we had to warm ourselves up with hot soup inside au bon pain. i had a large chicken noodle soup with cheesy bread stick. i think it was less than $10, can’t remember. i miss au bon pain. we used to have it here in manila. when i was working in grey manila, i used to buy breakfast there almost everyday.
[ january 2014 / chinatown. new york ] on our 2nd to the last day in new york, me and my brother ate at sun sai gai restaurant. i had roast duck toppings while my brother had spareribs with roast chicken combo. it was yummy. how can you go wrong with chinese food, right? i think both meals were less than $10 each. we even bought siopao for take out and it surprisingly tasted like kowloon siopao here in manila.
[ january 2014. wolfgang puck express. jfk international airport. new york ] i was delighted to see a wolfgang puck express in jfk. seeing an executive chef supervising fast food is impressive. and for only $ 9.49 you get to enjoy a super delicious four cheese pasto pizza! This is how fast food should be. And his pizza is better than what i ate at mario batali’s restaurant in singapore.
[ december 2013 / breakfast. plaza 436 diner. new jersey ] my cousin, giselle - who was 9 months pregnant, treated us to breakfast. we went to a diner in jersey. we ordered the hungry man meal ( $ 10.00 ). bottomless coffee, eggs, pancakes, ham, sausages and lots of bacon. more than enough to feed any hungry man or woman. yum. :-)
