Sweet sugar bombs of perfection! Doughnut Plant NYC!

duogh

Holy sugar bomb Batman! Doughnuts! What more can I say that has not been said about Doughnut Plant? They make ridiculously delicious donuts. I was at this newer location located at the Hotel Chelsea in NYC not too long ago. Pretty much right after my serious Summer training and eating light ended, so yeah, I splurged in a big way with no guilt!

This one is definitely set up more like a cafe over their other location on the Lower East Side. Much more space with tables and chairs. Some artwork on the walls with lots of color and giant doughnut pillows adorning them. More of a trendy looking spot as I guess they are catering to the Chelsea Hotel clientele a bit. Must have been working as it was pretty crowded when I was there. Why not? It’s doughnuts! Sweet sugar bombs of perfection! Continue reading Sweet sugar bombs of perfection! Doughnut Plant NYC!

There’s no meat in that? Really? It’s vegan? C’mon, you’re kidding. OMG this tastes amazing – like a party in my mouth!

That is what was going through my mind as I devoured the Seitan Chimichurri. It has this smoky flaver and slightly burnt edges as if cooked right on the bar-b-que. I could have sworn it was a meat product as it had great texture and substance. Served on skewers like a shishkabob. After this wonder I knew we were in for a treat. I had no clue that going meatless could be so tasty, but Candle Cafe on the Upper East Side of NYC enlightened me as to what delicious vegan cooking can be!

Now let me proclaim that I am a meat eater. I absolutely love love love steak, chicken, bacon, etc. If it moo’s I will eat it! But lately I feel a need to broaden my food horizon and try some healthier options. So here I was in a vegan restaurant. Continue reading Meatless? Me? Vegan delights at the Candle Cafe in NYC!

Brunch is God’s way of telling you it is ok to get drunk on Sunday afternoons! Actually, it should be retitled as DRUNCH!

Just had to tell you about this terrific spot in my hood called Parlor Steakhouse that thankfully is within stumbling distance from my apartment in NYC on the Upper East Side in Yorkville! They offer a killer brunch deal on the weekends.

For $29 you get almost unlimited (yes, it really is almost unlimited as it’s supposed to be five cocktails per guest over two hours, but let’s just say that rule was loose and flexible on our visit here!) bloody mary’s, mimosas, bellini’s and they are not shy about constantly refilling your drinks. Seriously, our waiter must have had radar about when our drinks were getting low. Also, bartender must have had a heavy pour because we are rocked from all the bloody mary’s! Must have had well more than the five allotted per guest. Plus, even though brunch ends at 4:00 they will keep pouring drinks until 4:30 and will not rush you out if still brunching! Bonus points!
