The Food Tour

I’m back from my trip visiting Andy in Jersey. I should add the word unfortunately to the previous sentence. I always have a blast when I visit him so it’s always difficult leaving. I still wish I would have forced him into my car when I left Tuesday morning. ;-P

Andy’s Lychee Saketini from Teak

From the photos I took while visiting (insert shock and awe!) it appears that all we did was eat. That wouldn’t be a stretch to say as we both love good food… But we did walk around quite a bit so we’ll pretend that evens things out.

Wednesday night when I arrived we had a (delicious) turkish meal from a little place near his apartment that we’ve been to a few times and called it an early night.

Thursday we had lunch at Teak on the Hudson where we had sushi and headed to Queens. The trip to Queens was short-lived because I didn’t realize I was still tired from the drive there and not getting very much sleep the day of my drive. I would like to go back though…

Friday we met up with my flickr friends Kasia and Elizabeth at Rutgers University. It started out being a rainy day, fortunately the rain stopped as we were walking around campus. We ended up stopping for ice cream at Thomas Sweet and later had dinner at Old Man Rafferty’s. Oh, and we took pictures at the statue on campus that supposedly whistles at virgins…?!

Saturday we had lunch at Nanoosh (a hummus bar) in Manhattan, walked around most of the day, and had dinner at Rosa Mexicano. There we had two pomegranate margaritas (each lol), guacamole, and our entree. Hey, we did a lot of walking!. My sister asked me what my favorite meal was, it was Rosa Mexicano hands down, it’s always Rosa Mexicano unless we go to Cafe Matisse! I’d probably make a special trip back to NY just to go to either places. Then again it wouldn’t take much of an excuse to make me want to go back.

Sunday we went to his friend Susan’s wedding. It was a jewish wedding, I have never been to one, so that was interesting in itself. Looking back, the wedding wasn’t too different from other weddings I’ve been to aside from a few traditions here and there. The reception was a lot of fun considering I didn’t really know anyone except a few of his friends that I had met last year at his birthday party. All of which are always so nice and welcoming!

Monday we planned to have an uneventful day, and it turned out to be a good idea, but it went by too quickly! I think we left his apartment only to grab something for lunch and dinner. Lunch was at a Ruthie’s; a bbq and pizza joint. We both had bbq but I’d love to go back and try the pizza. Dinner was pizza but from a different place. Heh-heh.

Even though we spent 5 full days together it seems like it went by too fast. Fortunately, I am going back for my birthday in ten short weeks so it’s not so bad. I can’t wait!

As a result of this trip I hit 250,000 miles as I was coming home and I realized I like taking pictures of food! That’s good right?
