A Taste Of New York City!

By Mellissa McGrath - 21:18:00

Hope your having a lovely Sunday! Today I thought I would share with you a mouth watering blog post and show you some tasty pictures of the food and treats I had whilst in New York! I have to warn you if you are looking for healthy food choices, you won't find them here! With a few exceptions (which I never actually took pictures of haha!) the majority of the food shown here went from burgers, to cheesecake to cheesy goodness, but hey I was on holiday so why not! haha...

Hard Rock Cafe - This burger was just as good as it looked! 

Junior's - So we seen this place was known for its No.1 cheesecake and being huge cheesecakes lovers like we are, we just had to try! I have to admit it was one of the best I've ever had, we shared a original New York slice and it was unbelievably tasty! (I wish we had this in the UK!)

Planet Hollywood - We never planned on coming here, but I always love a nice NY strip steak and this was beautiful, along with the mash and vegetables it was probably one of my top meals of the trip!

Quality Italian - So we had researched restaurants before going to NY and this place was known for and had great reviews of the Chicken Parmigiana, which looked amazing! But I have to say I was really disappointed I ended up having one slice and it was so salty and rich I couldn't face anymore! I wanted to give my honest opinion on these restaurants and this didn't taste as good as it looked for me unfortunately! It was lovely inside and very fancy, we didn't pre-book so we sat next to the bar, it was fine for us but I would recommend booking in advance for these type of restaurants if you can!

Shake Shack - This was not such a great picture but I just had to put it in, this place was amazing, it was always busy so we decided to go in and I am soooo glad we did! Best fast food place hands down - go if you have the chance, you won't be disappointed!

 Chevvy's - A lovely Mexican restaurant, I loved it! Another place I wish we had here..

TAORMINA - This was in little Italy, it was really nice and traditional and the food was lovely!

Ben & Jerry's - enough said! 

Dippin Dots - My favourite little treat, its a must when I go to America!

Carlo's Bakery - Being a huge fan of Cake Boss, I was really excited to go here! The cakes all looked so good and there was a huge variety! The cheesecake was really good, I chose the cannoli which I was actually disappointed with,  it wasn't the best but I think I made a bad choice, looking back I wish I had of chose something different as there was so much choice!

We also went to Magnolia Bakery! I didn't take a picture of what we got but I wish I did,  we chose the caramel pecan cheesecake and red velvet cake! They were amazinggggg best bakery hands down - you must try it!

So there it is, some scrumptious pictures and places I visited to eat when in New York City! The amount of places to go for food are endless. We really went to a lot of places during our adventures and although we had researched loads of great places beforehand, when you are on the go you just don't know where your going to end up! Next time I visit NYC I will definitely be trying new different and quirky places around the city, we just wanted to see as much as we could on our first visit so we weren't always sitting down to be wined and dined!

I hope you enjoyed this little food post, watch out for a new post later this week! :)
