Day 4 was filled with tons of eats! Prepare yourself and your belly…
Starting in East Village!
We put our names down at Clinton Street Baking Company and headed to Boba Guys! They’re SF based and recently opened shop in NYC. Please come to Seattle.
Blueberry pancakes are a top choice here. Oh so fluffy and their warm maple butter on top really makes it. Gosh this was scrumptious.
Of course we also had to get the fried chicken and waffle. Their chicken wasn’t dry at pretty juicy. Also topped with warm maple butter. Droooool. I can see why this place is worth the wait.
We made reservations at Mission Chinese. I would describe this place as hipster Chinese. I’m not sure if it was the things we ordered, but sadly I did not dig it. The decor is pretty retro – with pink napkins, dragon wall displays, and Buddha statues. This first dish was thrice cooked bacon and rice cakes. WHOA SPICY. Like tongue numbing spicy. I think I would have enjoyed this if it weren’t so spicy.
No this is not a soup. This was my drink! Chili oil, coconut milk and gin. Frankly it was not my cup of tea :/
Dumplings on the house! Pot stickers with a nice crunchy outside. To be honest, probably my favorite of the dishes we tried.
Salt cod fried rice. Interesting with the chips – I can see that they’re trying to add texture to the dish. A little too salty though :/ Overall, I don’t really understand get the dishes but maybe we ordered all the wrong things. Service was totally fine. Maybe I’m just too used to the traditional Chinese styles and it was a little too hip for me.
Of course we had to cap the night with some ice cream. This was at Ice and Vice. This is the classic milk money with a blue corn cone. Yes super fancy schmancy cones. Too many flavors and cones to choose from. Would come back!
