Inspired by Danny Choo‘s long running A Week in Tokyo series (possible NSFW link), I want to post an odd assortment of photos taken around NYC in the month of May. Instead of one off twitpics, a series of unrelated NYC photos makes for good juxtaposition.
NYC Subway Ad
Dorky yet amusing.
Kalbi from Shilla Ktown
You can never have too much Kalbi.
Vintage Bowling Set
I don’t remember what UWS furniture store this came from.
Red Mango Fulton St Grand Opening
More pay by the ounce yogurt shops is a good thing. The white peach yogurt I got was a bit too runny
Soul Daddy sauces
South St Seaport area – Soul Daddy of American’s Next Great Restaurant fame
Xiao Long Bao sauce stacks
So great, so far away. Nan Xiang Dumpling House in Flushing
Shaved Ice topped with Condensed Milk
As you can tell, I’m never one to shy away from blanket generalizations! Condensed milk goes great with everything! So does tapioca pearls, aloe vera, and bacon (though not necessarily all in the same dish)
Also in Flushing, at Ice Fire Land
Uniqlo Captain Jack Sparrow Shirt
The Disney hype machine is building up for the latest Pirate’s movie. This shirt was spotted at Uniqlo
From the Nintendo World store, goomba merch
You guessed it, from the Nintendo World store. I’d buy this, but $50 is too much for a novelty backpack
From the TSL3 afterparty, you can see Thorzain in the background with the adidas three stripes garb
Brown Butter with Candied Bacon on Brioche Cookie
Coolhaus in NYC. That is one seriously heavy dessert
Representing the streets of NYC
Chelsea Market exit
The Chelsea Market is a great example of repurposing old buildings (but this isn’t new news)
Whole Foods - Columbus Circle
Looking down at the Whole Foods in the Time Warner Center
