I’m always a little jealous of bloggers with blogs about nothing in particular. They can write totally random posts and nobody minds. So this is my catch-up post about a bunch of random stuff. I forget the day, but the NYC sky looked like this around sundown one night earlier in the summer. Everybody in Union Square was just staring at the sky and talking about how it felt sorta like the world was gonna end.
I tried the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck weeks ago but never wrote about it. This is an ice cream sandwich, but the wafer layers were slathered with Nutella. Very cool.
That same day I tried NYC Cravings. This is a crazy fish cake thing. I liked it, but it needed a little tweaking with condiments, and I was several blocks away in a park when I realized that. Darn.
Japan Premium Beef on Great Jones Street.
For anyone who wondered where I ate dinner on my birthday in San Francisco, here’s the answer. I’m a long-time fan of Luna Park.
I finally tried In-N-Out Burger in San Francisco. Hey, it’s just fast food, but if I was gonna eat a fast food burger, I’d go here.
Amazing chaat at Sapthagiri in Jersey City’s cool Newark Avenue Indian district.
A cool wedding party walking down the middle of Ludlow Street and posing for photos in front of T Poutine.
I’m probably not supposed to be posting a photo from this photoshoot, because it wasn’t one of my photoshoots, but I snapped this shot of Chef Todd pouring liquid nitrogen for making some instant sorbet or ice cream or something. Freakin’ awesome.
I ordered two tacos at the Korean food truck on 50th Street (I think) and 6th Avenue, but they gave me bulgogi over rice instead. Ummm…
OMG this photo makes me laugh every time I see it. I was taking a photo of the banh mi and there was a Vietnamese poster behind it and… okay never mind.
The Juan MacLean live at Webster Hall… really good show.
I tried this Chrysanthemum Tea Drink in San Francisco… yum.
This was the spread at a video shoot I worked on recently, all Puerto Rican holiday food. We had mountains of leftovers. Seriously, I think we had four hams.
Asobi Seksu at Music Hall of Williamsburg… amazing show.
I got this yummy Indian take-out from the food court in Newport Mall, Jersey City. Best food court food ever.
Another photo of Crumpet because you’re probably really bored with this post by now, and everybody loves Crumpet.
Fish sauce bottles at Baoguette, East Village, NYC.
A few people have asked me if I’ve tried Van Leeuwen ice cream. I have, and it’s very good. I’m not sure if it should be on that 10-top food trucks in America list though…
And that’s Jen — it’s her birthday this weekend, but you didn’t hear it from me. Happy Birthday Jen!
