Instagrammable cafe in NYC: Remi Flower & Coffee
Remi Flower & Coffee is such a gorgeous cafe in Midtown. Once you step foot here, you’ll be surrounded by plants and flowers which are part of their specialty coffees! We tried the lavender and the rose lattes and they’re are delicious as cute!
Where else can you get a flower arrangement while you enjoy your latte?
The best bobba tea in NYC: Tiger Sugar
Started in Taiwan, Tiger Sugar location in Chinatown is an unmissable spot! It has the original black sugar boba tea with fresh cream mousse and the signature tiger stripe design!
Fish shaped ice-cream cones: Taiyaki NYC
Taiyaki is a Japanese fish-shaped cake that became instagram famous a few years ago!
The taiyaki has a filling in red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans. I recommend trying the matcha and vegan flavors with red bean cones, unicorn sprinkles, horn and ears!
Hamptons vibes in NYC: Sandbar rooftop
Would you like to visit the Hamptons during your trip to NYC but you don’t have the time to do so? Then visit the Sandbar rooftop in the heart of Chelsea!
This Hamptons-inspired rooftop offers skyline views, delicious cocktails and artisan eats. I really loved the blue & white decor all around!
Italian market & restaurant: Eataly Downtown – La Pizza e Pasta a Colori
Ready for a color explosion?
Located in the Historic District, Italy Downtown is a Italian market that will tele transport you to Italy in a second!
Highly recommended: having lunch at La Pizza e Pasta a Colori. Created in collaboration with Color Factory (which I highly recommend to visit!), this restaurant is more than food: it’s an immersive experience!
The colors all around represent the colors of Manhattan and Italy. It’s so cool!
Indian food in NYC: Gupshup
I don’t know about you, but I love Indian food and I try to have a taste of it anytime I’m traveling and I find an authentic Indian restaurant.
We visited Gupshup at the beginning of my time in NYC as it offers outdoor dining!
Japanese ramen in NYC: Kyuramen
Everyday is ramen day! NYC is so good for yummy cravings when it comes to international food. I was craving authentic Japanese ramen and I went to Kyuramen in Flushing the day I got my vaccine and it felt so energizing! Maybe I’m wrong, but I’m sure this helped me so I didn’t develop any side effects!
Middle Eastern food in NYC: Au Zaatar
Au Zaatar in East Village is home of the original table side shawarma. I really enjoyed the cauliflower pizza and the mezze.
If you love Lebanese r Middle-Eastern food, this restaurant is a must!
Asian Fusion in NYC: Jue Lan Kitchen
Jue Lan Kitchen was my favorite place for brunch! The ambiance was so cool, if it’s not too hot you can enjoy a meal in their beautiful courtyard and their frozen margaritas are amazing! I can’t recommend it enough.
Seafood in NYC: Lamia’s Fish Market
Being from Spain I really wanted to check by myself how the Mediterranean gastronomy in NYC.
Lamia’s Fish Market is the best in the East Village for seafood, with fresh food and quality ingredientes served daily.
It’s such a cool place for a birthday celebration!
Michelin Awarded Korean Steakhouse in NYC: Cote
Cote is the first Korean steakhouse in New York City and the only Michelin starred Korean barbecue restaurant in the world is in New York!
Try the steak Omakase for a feast of Japanese Wagyu!
Fine Dining: MO Lounge at Mandarin Oriental New York
MO Lounge is the best for fine dining and the food exceeded the gorgeous views to Columbus Circle and Central Park. Expect inventive cuisine, tempting cocktails and chic surroundings!
