DAY FOUR // So far on this trip, we have been eating at some really neat places. One of the neater places was Alice’s Tea Cup in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, where we had breakfast. It’s a bit of a shabby hole-in-the-wall sort of place, but had a lot of interesting character to it. Just go inside and see! :)
A staple in New York is Baked By Melissa, a chain cupcake brand that offers bite size cupcakes where each cupcake is an affordable $1.50. Totally a great option if you just need to fill a tasting crave!
Afterwards, we made a walk to the Guggenheim Museum, a place where the architecture of the place has been photographed so much.
The exhibit we saw was interesting – this guy documented his life so meticulously in print and art form. For example, he painted typography of different dates in his life on canvas. Or, he sent postcards to different people in his life about what he did that day.
Basically, the modern day Social Media.
And then a collection by a different artist who created all her pieces through cut glass. The amount of time it takes to make one.. wow..
Had lunch at Vietnaam, and ate my first ever Pork Belly meal when I ordered the Pork Belly Sandwich.
Oh. My. Gawd. SO GOOD! I cannot emphasize that enough. How have I never ordered pork belly before?!
If you’re Vietnamese, you’re probably shaking your head. *Ashamed*
Another staple in New York – nut carts. They are SOOO good. I got the peanut ones and gobbled them up.
