nyc recap pt.4: soho & times square

May 13, 2009

after a fun lunch at peanut butter & co, i walked further down to soho to check out the rock & hall of fame annex…it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re into music (and who isn’t!)

after the museum, i did some strolling ’round the neighborhood and came across this line:

i don’t know about you, but if i see a line for cupcakes, i go stand in it- no explanation necessary!

look at how cute these are! she’s not kidding about them being miniature though! one bite each, for a dollar each! crazy new york prices, but still super delicious! i had the red velvet, tie-dye n pb cup!

we wandered into nolita, and while we were in the neighborhood, i absolutely had to stop by cafe habana. this is one of my favorite eateries ever! they have a dine-in restaurant and a take-out counter. both are always so crowded!

i wasn’t very hungry, but i made room for their famous mexican grilled corn.

have you ever had mexican corn? it’s sooo good! the white stuff is cotija- an aged mexican cheese.

i laughed when i reviewed the pics and saw this going on behind me:

food bloggers…or are they just being asian?:D

after walking around  a bit more,  i hopped on the subway back to the hotel for a quick rest before heading to times square.

i had a fruit leather while walking around….

we got sick of times square quick, so i did some window shopping on fifth avenue and we hit up all the touristy spots on the way back to our hotel.

i was too tired for a “real” dinner…but i was craving yogurt, so i grapped this kefir yogurt at a health food store (there were so many little health food shops everywhere-  i was very jealous!)

this stuff was so weird. it tasted nothing like the kefir that you drink…it was really mild- kinda like a creamy brie or something…

creepy color too, right? i think i’d try it again, but i was hoping for something really tangy- so i only ate about a third. no big deal, i was more interested in getting to bed to rest up for our last day in the city.

    Yay for John Lennon. I noticed the banner in the first pic.
    I love the night life pictures of New York.

    That’s some delicious looking corn! And need I even say anything about the cupcakes?

    That kefir does look rather creepy. My college roommate told me that she hated cherry flavored things b/c it reminded her of medicine. Cherries have never tasted the same to me since.
