Happy happy Thursday, Noshers!!  It’s almost the weeeeekend! I can’t wait – any fun plans?

Today I’m sharing my photos from the absolutely mouthwatering, gut-busting eat-stravaganza that was The Village Voice’s 4th Annual Choice Streets Food Truck Event.  It was the event’s fourth year, but my first time attending – and wow, was I missing out.  I actually was so excited that I brought my dSLR camera without its battery – UGH!! My worst nightmare.  So I had to rely on my shoddy camera on my phone.  Thankfully, with a ton of food trucks lined up on Pier 86th with the Intrepid as a backdrop, the event was a sight for sore eyes (and growling stomachs).  My eating buddy and I stuffed ourselves silly.

But what you really are waiting for – the pictures!  Without further ado: Continue reading »

Happy Tuesday, Noshers!  While the weather here in NYC is still playing games with my heart, I’m very much looking forward to one of my favorite seasonal farmer’s market buys – the delicate but flavorful ramp.  So, I’m extremely excited to share with you the details of Ramp Fest 2015!  I’m super sad that I won’t be able to attend this year since I’ll be out of town – however, I really hope one of you Noshers will attend and let me know ALL about it.  I’m had previously attended Ramp Fest 2014 and Ramp Fest 2013 (see my picture-heavy recaps here and here) and it was absolutely mouth-watering!!

Happy Thursday, Noshers!  It is finally getting warmer here in NYC, and I can’t wait to get outside and enjoy the weather a little more!  I admit I went for my first outdoor run in months last week, and it was a little brutal.  Gotta get used to working out outside again – although with Central Park as a workout venue, I guess I can’t complain :)

Today, I’m super excited to share the details about an upcoming event I’ll be attending in two weeks – The Village Voice’s 4th Annual Choice Streets Food Truck Event!  Although this is the fourth year of the event, it is my first time attending and I am psyched! Continue reading »

Thai: Somtum Der

Last week, I was invited to the (fairly) recently opened Thai restaurant Somtum Der, in the East Village. I had heard good things about it but hadn’t yet had the chance to try it out – so I was happy have the opportunity to do so now! They recently released a new menu item called the Tum Dong Der – a platter with papaya salad in the middle and surrounded by tapas-style Thai accoutrements.  I was excited to not only try this new offering but also check out the rest of the menu.  For my eating buddy that evening, I invited a friend whose family is of Thai origin and has some knowledge of the restaurant business – we couldn’t wait to get started.

The first thing we noticed was the decor, which was trendy and tasteful, with lots of fresh ingredients and supplies at the bar: Continue reading »

The Lost Sense Chocolate

Happy day, Noshers!  Well, it’s a happy day for me at least – I’m sharing my thoughts on some new chocolate I recently sampled.  And hopefully happy for you – because you’ll get to read about said chocolate. Okay okay, not as satisfying as eating it but hopefully still good :).

A few weeks ago, the guys at The Lost Sense reached out to me.  Locally located (right in Brooklyn!), The Lost Sense prides itself on chocolate truffles that not only look like works of art but also are mouthwateringly delicious.  So when they asked if I’d be open to sampling some of their wares, of course I said yes.

When I received my box of truffles, the first thing I noticed was the clean, modern look of the packaging – me likey: Continue reading »
