Food Photo Friday - Ippudo NY

Best. Ramen. Ever.

In NYC I had the best ramen I've ever had in my whole entire life. There's not may places in Austin with ramen. So when I saw this place on Yelp, I knew I had to drag my hubby here. The place was nice and cozy since it was a little small. There was a huge crowd and the wait was about an hour to an hour&a half. The lovely hostess told us it would probably be less because people would leave (which would bump us up on the list!!!). Hubby and I decided this place must be worth it, so we stuck it out and waited. Luckily we only waited about 30-40 minutes. The staff was amazingly friendly. The food was even better! It was like a party in my mouth. I definitely recommend Ippudo if you're in NYC!

Food Photo Friday - BonChon Chicken

I hate travelling some times because when you get back home, you can no longer eat those delicious foods you had while on vacation. This is exactly how I feel when it comes to BonChon Chicken... Besides being able to escape reality, BonChon is what I miss the most from NYC. On our second night, we decided to try BonChon for dinner. I put on some hott heels hubby got me, but man oh man I did not know that they would hurt so much. Especially when BonChon was a mile away from our hotel room. But once I started eating those chicken wings, all the pain was worth it.

Hope I can go back SOON. I miss NYC so much! Maybe not all the weight I gained, but I miss the city!
Maybe when I'm baller enough, I can franchise my own BonChon in Austin, TX!!! =D

Happy eatings! <3

Food Photo Friday - Joe's Shangai

AHH! It's my first day in NYC and I'm super excited. I'm really tired though! So I'm gonna try to make this quick. We got into NYC around 4 o'clock and were stuck in traffic for a good while. We got to our hotel around 5:30 and after we checked in and got situated, we headed out to NYC in search for dinner. ALLLLL of my friends have been raving about Joe's Shangai so we decided it would be a good meal after a long flight (long in my terms since I HATE flying!) There are a couple locations in New York, but we went to the one closest to our hotel.
