New York Trip

I recently returned from a short trip to New York for a holiday.  Food was my main reason for gallivanting around that fine city so I present to you some of my favourite experiences.

For those interested, my top three burgers in order were:

1. The Burger Joint, lobby of Le Meridian Parker Hotel, double burger medium rare with the works
2. Bill’s Bar and Burger, bacon and cheese burger
3. Montmarte, raclette burger medium rare

Fast Food
1. Shake Shack
2. Five Guys, Burgers and Fries
3. Smashburger

Some other things I learnt:
The beef is better in America
The milkshakes are better in America
The coffee is better in Australia (in my opinion)
After having NYC hot dogs, I can never eat a dog at Harry’s Cafe de Wheels again
Maine lobster rolls are worth all the fuss
Go to THELEwala for amazing Indian rolls
Food portions in New York are ‘normal’, no overloaded plates like you’re warned about when you mention an upcoming US trip
Prepare your wallet: meals at breakfast cafes are the same Dollar amounts (ie pancakes are on average $AUD16 here and also $USD16 there but take into account the exchange rate and mandatory tipping!)

Next week, back to regular reviews but for now: minimal talk, just a photo explosion!
