Gourmet Popcorn in NYC

You will think of popcorn differently when you try gourmet popcorn from Garret. From Chicago to NYC, Garret simply offers heaven in a bag! My boyfriend and I love to go for the Garret mix, which is a combination of cheese and caramel. I know what you are thinking! Just try it, you wont know until you try! And if you are a wine lover like me, you can pair this snack with white wine.

Soul Food spot in The Bronx

Another Hidden Gem in The Bronx, ya’ll! Okay so whenever I walked pass this block, this restaurant is always packed with people. I went inside and asked the chef why this restaurant is always packed and he simply told me in his Caribbean accent “When you try the food, you will know”.

I must admit that the food is truly good!  My boyfriend and I had fish, shrimps, mac and cheese, candied yams, corn bread and their signature drink called half and half. The serve a lot of food so we split the food and we were more than satisfied.

Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. The chef was right after all, now I know why this place is always packed.

Ice cream date at Van Leeuwen

A scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough from Van Leeuwen is all I need on a Sunday afternoon. Their ice cream is simply delicious. Each spoon is filled with a bunch of mmmmm.. that sound you make when you’re eating something too good. If you are a ice cream lover in the NYC area, than you must try Van Leeuwen. If you are lucky like me, you may find this ice ream at your local supermarket.
