Hi all! Hope you’ve had an amazing week! Today I’m sharing some restaurant reviews with you all! It seems like such a long time since I’ve written a post on food and the places I’ve been eating at. These three places I’m talking about today range from noodles to fried chicken, so there should be something for everyone to try if you are in NYC. Also, just wanted to add a disclaimer that these are my own personal opinions and opinions can differ!
During this year’s winter NYC Restaurant Week, Alex and I ventured up to Harlem for the first time since living in NYC to try out a place that is very well known for their fried chicken. Alex first heard of this place via a Buzzfeed Worth It episode, thus we had to go. We went during lunchtime because it was cheaper than the dinner options, even though the menu/options were relatively the same. While Alex started his meal with a fennel soup, I opted for a salad. Both were so delish!! For the main course, we both decided on the fried chicken thigh with gravy and veggies. The dish was overall very good, but personally, I would have liked my chicken to be crispier. If you do go here, I beg you to get the corn bread…it was DELISH! And for dessert, the only option was a cupcake. The food was good, but not phenomenal and the cupcake was kind of a sad ending. I’m usually a cupcake lover, but those cupcakes weren’t meeting any expectations. The frosting was hard and the cake was dry. I would still recommend that you try this restaurant out because of the amazing interiors and mood.
After class late one night, we decided to grab some dinner near school. We were craving Chinese and found this place on Yelp. Every time I go to a Chinese restaurant, I always share everything with the people I am with, just a Chinese tradition. Alex and I ordered a few dishes and one of them has to be fish in chili-oil, which is a favorite of ours. We were first introduced to this dish at an amazing Chinese restaurant in Florence, Italy and have been trying to find a replica ever since. This restaurant made it pretty good and was generous with the serving sizes. We also ordered chicken lettuce wraps and of course rice. The chicken lettuce wraps were delicious!! The flavors blended together so well and I am craving that meal again as I am writing this. We didn’t get a change to try more dishes, but I would totally go back just to get those two dishes again!
3.Tasty Hand Pulled Noodles II
Lastly, this hand-pulled noodle place is a must-go. Alex and I have been trying to eat out more in our area of town to get to know the area better. Noodles are both of our weaknesses! I’ve shared another hand-pulled noodle place before that was in Chinatown, but this one is so convenient cause it’s only a couple streets away from us. I ordered a bowl beef brisket glass noodles and Alex went with a bowl of house special egg noodles (has chicken, beef and shrimp). And it was sooo good, I ended eating all of it, which is rare! I also was sick that day so the beef broth was so delicious. They have so many different combinations of noodles, toppings and broths that there HAS to be a bowl for you. Even if you don’t end up going to this place, I highly recommend going to a hand-pulled noodle spot.
These are the three restaurants I wanted to share with you today. Let me know your favorite spots in NYC or elsewhere in the world. My love for food is borderline unhealthy, but I don’t think that’s something I need to curb haha. Hope you all have an amazing weekend!
A million and one thanks for reading — until my next lil’ thought then!

I couldn’t agree more! there’s always a new place to try here! And you have to try those noodles–they are the absolute best! Thanks for reading!
Such a bummer the cupcake wasn’t the best! I’m always disappointed if I get a dessert and it’s not good. But, at least the entrée was good!
pumps and push-ups
I agree!! The dessert is suppose to be the part that sums up the whole meal! thanks for reading babe!
Mmmm you had me at fried chicken! Looks delicious hunny xx
The chicken was the best part of the meal and you def have to try if you’re ever in the area!
That place sounds so good.
They all were amazing in their own ways!
it was delish!
That sounds like a great place!
You def have to try one of them out if you’re ever in the city!
it’s dinner time in Dubai, you are making me feel so hungry lol xx
Haha hope you had something delish to eat!
This post made me hungry lol. All the food looks so yummy! I prefer my fried chicken to be super crispy too so i would’ve probably had the same problem as you in that place. And I’m sorry to hear the cupcake was a rather sad ending, they should probably add a few more dessert options hehe.
I’d love to go to a hand-pulled noodle place as I love noodles too. That last place sounded awesome!
Haha I am hungry just looking at the photos too and girl I totally get you on every part! Thanks so much for reading!
I miss NYC and its food scene, nice to know there is Red Rooster there. They’re in Sydney too but they are not performing well I guess and not many branches left. I would like to go to Chinatown the next time I visit New York, I heard a lot of good food around the area.
Yes there are always so many places to try here! And I totally recommend going to Chinatown (my fave) because of all the options + how inexpensive it is!
Those noodles look so so yummy!
