Eating my way through NYC – Day 5

Last and final day. Short and sweet post. We hit up the infamous cronuts at Dominique Ansel. We were able to pre-order and skip the line! Yes that’s a thing.

Since the line was short we decided to also get the Croque Madame ;P yums

Cronut! The flavor of the month was caramelized banana and dulce de leche ganache. Overhyped? Slightly. I think it was still worth trying especially since we were able to make skip the line (not much of a line on a Monday!) and grab a table to enjoy them. You’re supposed to consume them within the hour to get the best out of it. Flakey, buttery and all that you could imagine.

Last stop was Xi’an Famous Foods. It’s a chain of Chinese foods (kind of making up for the hipster Chinese place we went to.. our taste buds weren’t really satisfied). Quick and dirty eats – kind of a hole in the wall set up. You order in the front and find a spot to eat. Popular lunch spot! I love their menu because there are a ton of pictures! Pork noodles

Stewed oxtail noodles! Not too spicy and oh so tender.

Also had to try the pork burger – a little meh. Overall a super cheap spot that’s a quick and tasty eat 🙂 That wraps up our trip!
