Last Saturday two friends and I committed to spending a whole day walking around downtown in search of tasty food. We had already spent considerable time figuring out an itinerary and our final plan included five locations to grab a bite and two for cocktails. By the end of the day, we had stuck to our intended itinerary and even had room to sneak in two additional spots along the way. Since we shared everything (except for cocktails and buns at Baohaus), I didn’t feel stuffed at the end of the day. The walking probably helped as well.
Excellent breakfast at Dominique Ansel: choco soft bun, ham & cheese croissant, “DKA”
Unscheduled stop at Payard for a coffee macaron
Beecher’s Handmade Cheese make their own cheese on-site in these giant vats.
Grilled black forest ham and cheese sandwich and their “World’s Best” mac & cheese. It was very tasty but not the world’s best.
Prosecco (and donut) stop at Tarallucci e Vino.
Beef cheek bao and pork belly bao at Baohaus. I was surprised that I liked the beef cheek more than the pork belly, but both were yummy.
A well-made Negroni at Freeman’s. So good I had two!
The star of the day: whole fried chicken wings at Pok Pok Wing. I want to go back to there.
Boquerones and patatas bravas at La Churreria
A small order of regular churros with dipping chocolate and one vanilla cream stuffed churro. Unfortunately they were sold out of the dulce de leche stuffed churro that I really wanted. Not sure I would go back here, nothing was so good that I’ll crave it again.
