New York, Again

July 22, 2012

I’m back in New York for the second time this year, only for a couple of days, but nonetheless, it feels like a second home to me. Even though Florida and Vegas are beginning to tare that away from the big apple.

Tonight I went out to a Japanese restaurant and had some of the absolutely best chicken teriyaki that I have had, it was completely different, the sauce that is, than what I have been served before. It was also served on a steaming hot plate when it arrived and was way too warm to even touch as it was steaming still. It was a little place in Queens at Austin St.

Tomorrow I’m waking up early to go grab my Starbucks Coffee, well, not coffe but their fabulous Tazo Green Tea Latte with steam milk and green tea, of course. A delicious and healthy alternative to those who drink soda. I myself am a huge tea supporter, in fact, I drink at least 1-2 cups per day.

Might also throw in The Dark Knight Rises while I’m here as it’s much, much cheaper than Sweden. Is it even out there yet? Anyway, that’s all for today.

One of the best drinks at Starbucks in my opinion.


The Cheesecake Factory

July 12, 2012

Just came back from a delicious dinner at The Cheesecake Factory, and for some reason it was my first time ever. Why did it take so long?

Immediately upon arrival I had a good feel about The Cheesecake Factory. Massive lines and it was jampacked. And we all know that those are signs of quality. We were very lucky to get a table in only a few minutes as we were a party of two and two people just had left and most people were bigger parties.

I ordered the delicious teriyaki chicken which they made specially for me as I requested it to be made different than from its original recipe from the menu which was a very kind gesture and it came out perfect. Then it was time for dessert and what other thing to try than their legendary cheesecake?

I normally don’t fancy cheesecakes – but this, I loved. It was delivered in a beatiful design all slick and with a click of styled whipped cream on the side. Just by looking at it my mouth started to get satisfied. The taste was perfect – it balanced the cake and cream perfectly and just blended inside my mouth in harmony as it was meant to. I couldn’t be happier.

Needless to say, I’ll be going to the Cheesecake Factory on a much more frequent basis from now on.

It tastes just as good as it looks.
