πŸ₯¨ in πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ—½ Pretzels at Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. I've been wanting to visit this place ever since a follower tagged me on a photo here back in 2014. Finally got to realize that dream four years later 😌 Thanks for the inspiration @tammeeek! This is Brooklyn Bridge, one of the oldest suspension bridge in USA that connects Brooklyn to Manhattan. It was opened 135 years ago in 1883 to accomodate commuters who worked in Manhattan but lived outside the borough. Pretzels first made landfall in America in Philadelphia, but this style with coarse salt is a New Yorker thing. #πŸ₯¨ #πŸ—½ #πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

πŸ™ŒπŸ» That famous Chicken & Gyro rice platter from Halal Guys @thehalalguys at West 53rd & 6th Avenue in New York City. When I first visited NYC ten years ago, I was staying at a the Hilton right across this corner. Every night as I was coming back to the hotel, there was always a long line at this cart even when it was late into the night. So one night I decided to see what's up and joined the queue. I got myself a combo chicken gyro platter - and... well, I loved it so much that I had to bring one back home, six hours flight be damned (at that time I was living in LA). I don't know what they put inside that signature white sauce but i knew I had to have more. It wasn't until I got back home that I looked them up - you have to remember that this was before the days of smart phones, so to connect to internet you have to be on a laptop or computer. That’s when I found out they are THE Halal Guys. When I came back to NYC a few weeks ago, of course I had to give them a visit. Happy to report they were every bit as good as I remembered. And that super spicy red sauce STILL got me good. πŸ”₯ Nowadays there are plenty of halal carts around NYC, but @thehalalguys were the OG.

Pickle soft-serve in New York City - an unusual find through @atlasobscura, my favorite travel guide for off-the-beaten path travel ideas. When visiting an exciting place like New York City, I'm always overwhelmed by so many popular recommendations that keeps repeating itself. While I love going through the popular places, I also try to make it my own experience by squeezing in a few unique bites. This pickle soft serve piqued my interest right away. I love pickle and I love ice cream. But a combination of both? Definitely haven't seen that anywhere else. So I made my way to the upper west side of NYC to a place called @luckypickledumpling. And the verdict? I loved it! The soft-serve is very light, more like a frozen yogurt with the taste of fresh cucumber and a hint of saltiness that resembles pickles. I also opted to get the chocolate sauce ($1 extra), which sounds weird but it really works. The creaminess of the chocolate sauce, which has frozen to create a shell around the soft-serve, complements the light taste of the soft-serve very well. I actually found myself craving it after a few days. If you are ever in NYC and love unusual bites - definitely give this one a try! #🍦 #πŸ₯’

🌭 Hot dog at πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Times Square - the ultimate New York street food! Hot dog was brought to NYC by German immigrants, in form of push carts in 1860s. Nowadays it can be found everywhere along with Pretzels and Pizzas. In NYC, the sausage used are all beef instead of a mixture of pork and beef. This photo is taken behind the statue of George M. Cohan, "the man who owned Broadway". He is considered the father of American musical comedy. #πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ #🌭

Hello from New York! Being back in the city has been overwhelmingly amazing. The last time I was here was 10 years ago, and obviously a lot has changed so i've just been discovering everything all over again. Unfortunately the weather is pretty shitty today so I'm stuck at the Grand Central station while waiting out the rain. I guess it could have been worse - I did use the opportunity to check out this beautiful station and most importantly (of course) the cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery @magnoliabakery at the basement of the station. The 105 year old Grand Central is celebrating two anniversaries this year - 40 years rescued and 20 years renewed. The station was nearly demolished 40 years ago in favor of a 55-story office building, but thankfully it was rescued, repaired and reopened 20 years ago in 1998. Many of the station's original features were preserved (albeit significantly restored) - most notably the constellation ceiling in the main concourse, which is still painted backwards according to the original design. Bonus: this shot was taken from the most beautiful @apple store I've seen yet!

πŸ₯ Most of us know this fuzzy green fruit as Kiwi from New Zealand, but did you know that they are not actually native from New Zealand? The fruits actually originated from China, and was brought and planted here in 1906. This is why they are first known as Chinese gooseberry, then briefly called "melonette", and eventually renamed to "Kiwifruit" for marketing purposes. However, it is New Zealand that developed the first commercially viable Kiwifruit and developed the export markets, creating the demand for the fruit that exists today. In New Zealand, the term "Kiwi" could refer to the native bird that is the national symbol of the country, or used as a nickname for people who are from New Zealand. For me personally Kiwi was such an exotic fruit. I saw and had it for the first time when I was 10 years old. I remember being so curious at this weird fuzzy fruit that are bright green on the inside. But I loved that beautiful seed pattern on the cross section of the fruit. In the background you can see Lake Marian, an alpine lake at Fiordland National Park. πŸ” Probably the most beautiful hike I have ever done in my life.

What is cooler than a Japanese handmade Doubutsu Donuts or "Animal Donuts"? This is one of my favorite foods you can find in Japan for my series with ANA (@allnipponairways_official) This cat donut is from Floresta Nature Donuts (@floresta_nature_doughnuts) at Shin Kyogoku Market in Kyoto. These animal donuts became a sensation a few years back when it was first created by Floresta in Nara. Due to the massive success of the animal donuts, they now have branches all over the Kansai region. There are many different animal designs in the shop but this cat donut is one of their originals and still the best in my oponion. The donuts are all cake-based and the ears are made of almonds. Adorable and a true display of Japanese food craftsmanship. Whether you are in Asia or in the U.S. @allnipponairways_official has direct flights to Japan to get your own Doubutsu Donut! #🍩 #🐱

🍑 How cool is Hanami Dango? I am excited to share my next favorite Japanese food with you as part of my series and partnership with ANA @allnipponairways_official Hanami Dango is so important to the Japanese culture that there is an emoji dedicated to it 🍑. Hanami θŠ±θ¦‹ in Japanese means "watching flowers" (Hana 花 = flowers; mi 見 = to watch) and Dango simply means rice cake. Japanese eats Dango all-year round, but this dango variation with pink, white and green color is traditionally eaten during Hanami or sakura season. The colors represents what you see during that season: pink represents the color of sky filled with pink sakura flowers 🌸, white is for any remaining snow from winter and the green is the grass that starts to grow, marking the beginning of Spring. These colors are said to represent the Japanese tradition of going to the nearest park for Hanami - to enjoy the beautiful Sakura. And this is what I think is cool about Japanese food. Every detail has a purpose, down to the colors. #🍑 #🌸

Is Japan Cool? πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ I am partnering up with ANA (@allnipponairways_official), my favorite Japanese airline, to show you my take on what makes Japan a cool place to visit for their campaign. Most of you know by now that I'm a huge fan of Japan and Japanese food. It's difficult to not love Japan when everything there is crafted to perfection. Take this Matcha Green Tea ice cream for example. This is one of the most memorable food I had in the many trips I've done to Japan - It's probably the most perfect green tea ice cream with matcha powder at the perfect location in the alleys of Gion in Kyoto. Matcha is a form of green tea where the tea leaves were grounded finely to form soft green powder. I'm a huge fan of green tea, and this ice cream truly embodies that perfect flavor of green tea - aromatic, slightly bitter but sweet at the same time. Then, to add more to the taste, you can opt to sprinkle Matcha powder on top of the ice cream. Check out the link in profile to learn more about how Japan is Cool! ⏫

πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡ΌI was definitely on eat-first-google-later mode for this one. My last photo that I forgot to post from my Taipei trip a few months ago. When friends heard I would be staying in Ximending, they immediately recommended Ay-chung. So I quickly googled the location and off we went right after dropping off our stuff at our airbnb. The place was super small with a very "chop-chop let's go" vibe, but you can spot it a mile away from all the people slurping from the same bowl. As soon as you pay, you just slide a little bit to the left and your warm bowl of noodle will be handed to you in a milisecond. I didn't even have time to refuse the plastic spoon 😐 They only serve the ONE thing here, which is a silky rice noodle served in a thick gravy and as far as I can tell, contains seafood and pork intestines. we ate them all (and enjoyed it). I'm glad I didn't look it up first πŸ‘€ The noodles were really soft and slippery so you do need to use a proper soup spoon, or else it will be very challenging to eat. The soup was more like a gravy, the consistency was rather thick but still slurp-able. I loved this type of noodles so I enjoyed my bowl very much!! I got a small bowl but you can get a large bowl as well. After this we had fried chicken, bubble tea and then took a break before having Taiwanese breakfast stuff.... for afternoon snack. @franciak told me she hasn't eaten that much in one go in a long time πŸ˜‚

πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Day 6 (Last day!) of with @hotelsdotcom in Paris is Raspberry Brioche Γ  TΓͺte from Stohrer, the oldest patisserie in Paris! Hands up if you find French Revolution fascinating! βœ‹πŸ» Apparently that famous phrase "Let them eat cake" is a translation from "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche". The phrase is often attributed to Marie Antoinette, though there are no official record of this. It is said to have been uttered in response to her learning that the French peasants were so poor they had no bread to eat. From the original translation it seems that Antoinette was referring to Brioche, a luxury bread enriched with butter and eggs which was scarce at the time of poverty. If true, this reflects the princess' disregard for the peasants, or her poor understanding of their grave situation. Marie Antoinette became the last queen of France before the French Revolution and was later executed under the guillotine. (Not even gonna lie, I know about French Revolution history from reading Rose of Versailles comic book when I was young πŸ™Š) . Stohrer first opened up shop in 1730 by Nicolas Stohrer, the pastry chef of Louis XV. He was Polish but came to France as part of bridal entourage of the prince of Poland who was maried to Louis XV. He later opened up his own bakery, Stohrer Patisserie, which is still operational until today.

πŸ“πŸ‡«πŸ‡· Day 5 of with @hotelsdotcom in Paris features Strawberry Almond Paris-Brest (Paris-Brest Fraise Amande) from La PΓ’tisserie des RΓͺves. Paris-Brest was first created in 1910 to commemorate the cycling event from Paris to Brest, but it became so popular that you can find it in most Parisian patisseries these days. The round shape of it is said to represent the bicycle wheels πŸš΄πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. This dessert is a must-have when in Paris. It's normally made from choux pastry with Praline cream, but this one I got is a Mother's day special by La PΓ’tisserie des RΓͺves where the choux pastry is inverted and topped with fresh Strawberries and extra almonds in the Praline cream. Also, it's prettier 😜 Special thanks to @food_feels for finding this place! This is why I love travelling with foodies. #πŸ“
