15 random pics

Here it goes again with a bunch of totally random pics that I just felt like posting but didn’t make sense in a post on their own… How cool is that tiny pink egg in this dish I tried at May Chan Ramen & Robotayaki? I think these were the condiments and sides for a soup dish.

If you haven’t made it over to NYC’s Highline, you should check it out before it gets too cold. I snapped this shot from there.

This was the spread at the book party for Dede Wilson’s new Unforgettable Desserts. Yum! I ate about 5 of those tiny brownies. (Hey, they were tiny!)

This is the daughter of justcooknyc down in Cape May, NJ. How cute is this photo! It’s hard to see, but yes, she uses a much more serious camera than I do.

Speaking of Cape May, they’ve got seriously good fudge at Morrow’s Nut House.

And also speaking of Cape May… so many diners in Wildwood, but not enough time to try them all. I gave it my best shot though.

And speaking of Wildwood… mini golf time. This cracks me up.

And speaking of South Jersey, I finally made it to a Sonic. Pretty good, although I think I like the drinks better than the actual burgers. The fries, poppers, etc., are good too.

Back to NYC, I re-visited the Picnick truck at Wall Street to try the pulled pork sandwich. Highly recommended.

Speaking of carts & trucks, I’ve told you about the amazing Korean tacos at The Krave in Jersey City, right? What do you mean you haven’t tried it yet?

Guilty pleasure — I love these.

This was called a South Wind Steamed Rice Noodle — it’s a rice noodle roll thing with little dried shrimp inside from Lan Zhou in Chinatown. Very enjoyable.

Speaking of Chinatown… the fried wontons at Wonton Garden on Mott Street are so awesome. Wonton Garden is one of the best full-menu places in Chinatown for vegetarians, by the way — a lot of other soup spots have nothing to offer.

Jen and I have been trying all of the Korean casserole-type dishes at Song 7.2 lately. They’re all made to share, and they cook some of them right at the table for you. They’re also blazingly spicy. Seriously, this will tear you apart, but it’s awesome. The restaurant is packed to capacity all Friday and Saturday night long with partying Koreans, but it’s a lot of fun.

Back to Cape May, this was a pretty sunset in Wildwood West. I want summer back.
