Everything bagel with scallion (spring onion) cream cheese. Bagels are amazing.
Pastrami ruben with pickle. Yes, that is a lot of meat on a sandwich. I only managed to eat half of it. Oh, America.
Jumbo slice pizza… not as good as dad’s. I got the mozzarella one and it didn’t have tomato base, so it wasn’t that flavorful. But it was big!!
So many of the food shops downtown were really retro-kitsch. Lots of neon lighting!!
So I got my soup somewhere else that night. Polish white borscht from the city’s Little Poland district in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. So good for warming up considering the weather was so nasty out. Brrrrr. And really, really tasty! (Good pierogi too!)
(And yes, I did not exactly eat healthy food in NYC!! But I was outside walking in the cold for two days, so hopefully it balanced out…)
I didn’t eat any hot dogs or pretzels, but there were little carts like this selling them all over the downtown, as well as hot roasted nuts.
