Food in NYC: Part 3

This is the final part of my food-adventures in New York City, I am on my way back to Berlin. Although the autumnal Brooklyn sun has been very good to us and the Berlin November weather is living up to its fame, I am quite okay with coming back. Also because I can go back to my normal eating habits and don’t feel pressured by a never-ending foursquare to-eat list. Thanks to organizing my schedule better than in the first days, I managed to cross quite some off in the last days, read about them here.
And for more, here’s the first and the second part of Food in NYC.

Food in NYC: Part Two

The first part about eating in New York City way written before I moved to Brooklyn, where everything just got better and I experienced some seriously good food moments. Although I must admit the cover photo of this article was taken in the Lower East Side, of all places, so this prejudice of Brooklyn being the better Manhattan is actually just a cliché. But have a look:

Food in NYC: Part 1

I am in New York for two weeks and sadly, I haven’t yet managed to experience a food-revelation in the big city. I’ve had good food, very good, but nothing as mind-boggling as the Thai food I had in London, for instance. Maybe that’s because I haven’t (yet) laid my focus on Asian food over here. Nevertheless, this is the first part of my very good food experiences.

Food in London: Koya

I don’t queue to get into a club or a bar. I don’t queue for the newest H&M collaboration. I don’t queue for a super sale. But I queue for food. Even if this means standing on the streets of Soho in London while the rain is falling, wearing a thin summer-coat, that wasn’t a wise decision considering the British temperatures. I queued outside for an hour, because the seater told us to. I queued for a restaurant that doesn’t take reservations and is always full. Where the seater also won’t take a list of names or tell you any predictions on how long it will take and will only give you the table if every guest of your party has arrived and, of course, strictly follows the line outside. If you go to have a hot tea somewhere to bypass the waiting, you’ll lose your place in line and will have to queue again. Nevertheless I queued and Koya was so worth it.*
