{foodventure pt. 1}

There's nothing better than an impromptu adventure, especially when there are various food destinations involved. I've admittedly been paying a little too much attention to my double chin and have been feeding it obsessively over the last month or so — I'm slowly turning into Jabba the Hut.

With three hours to kill before I had to head over Brooklyn for Fashion Rocks, courtesy of my company, naturally the first thing we needed to do was grab some food. And by some food, I mean six different joints in the span of two and a half hours: Ippudo, Pommes Frites, San Loco, Snowdays Shavery, Sunny & Annie's, and Big Gay Ice Cream.

1: Ippudo {pictured below— special menu popsicle cocktail {didn't catch the name of it, but it was delicious; it tasted like a Japanese soda pop}, pork buns, and miso ramen. Ippudo is overrated and overrpriced, but always a solid meal. 

2: Pommes Frites {pictured below— regular with Mango Chutney {always a must}, Especial sauce {ketchup, European mayo, and chopped onion pieces}, and Mexican Ketchup {ketchup with a chimchurri-like sauce layered on top}.

3: San Loco — Guaco Loco taco {a soft torilla spread with guacamole wrapped around a hard-shell taco}. Simple, yet satisfying.

4: Snowdays Shavery {pictured below} — to be honest, the photo below is from a different time that I went there, but the green tea and black sesame shaved ice were sold out. We were lucky enough to catch the two flavors this time around! Best discovery of the last few days of summer.

5: Sunny & Annie's {pictured below— the Pho Real sandwich. Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like. Roast beef, bean sprouts, basil, cilantro {none on our sammy because I HATE cilantro}, avocado, tomato, onion, hoisin sauce, and Sriracha sauce.

6: Big Gay Ice Cream - our last stop! Bea Arthur never disappoints and you can never go wrong with the Salty Pimp. There's just something about the soft serve at BGIC that keeps you going back...

We amazed ourselves with the amount of food that we consumed that day. It's becoming somewhat of a regular occurrence that we go on these foodventures. This wasn't the first nor will it be the last foodventure.

.... Welcome back, my beautiful double chin.
