I have one last post to write to wrap up our wild New York weekend. We ate our way around the city and around the world.
First stop- Pret a Manger. I *love* this place. Found it first when I visited London many moons ago- it’s just a sandwich shop but it’s so fresh and they’re dedicated to quality products.
We feasted on some sushi at Umi Sushi. Reasonably priced and fresh! We had a cucumber/avocado roll, spicy tuna roll, california roll, and….a deep fried roll! Also pictured is the free and tasty crab salad they give you. Two thumbs up!
A trip to NY would not be complete without a bagel. We tracked down Murray’s Bagels and split a pumpernickel bagel with lox spread. Chewy and flavorful- how do they do it? Bagels really are not as good outside of the Empire State.
Post-bagel noshing included a trip to Chinatown.
Can you believe we actually did not get pork chops here? Sacrilege!
Dessert was a trip to the Cafe Roma for cannolis and espresso. There was something special about these cannolis…ginger, maybe? Gosh, these were good.
Gotta love traveling and New York…even when you stay in one city, you can still eat your way around the world.
