In the three and a half days I spent in NYC visiting my sister in East Village, I can recall the 13 eateries I hit while venturing the city! I’d like to think that the 103k steps and 43 miles walked cancelled out the obscene amount of calories, right? I mean, calories don’t really count on vacations. There are several food joints I’d love to take a bit out of, but that’ll be for my next trip back. You can only eat so much before you begin to develop a permanent food baby.
My sister took me all around town (see Photo Diary) and exposed me to all of the culture and personality of NYC. I’m glad she’s a foodie too because you can’t travel to New York without taking a taste of the town; and, you can really do it on a budget too! Aside from the places we hit, I also LOVED the overnight oats she had ready for breakfast everyday. So simple yet the perfect amount of everything in a little cup. Looks like my breakfast routine will be switching up a bit moving forward.
Now to the good part: what I ate.
