PEACEFOOD CAFE: Vegan treats

Peacefood Cafe - dumplings

Dear Food Diary:
When I was younger, a meal wasn’t complete without meat. Though I’m still a carnivore at heart, aging has slowly changed that. As much as I love steak, there are days my body just needs a time out.

Don’t worry, this bacon loving Chubby isn’t turning vegan or anything. Just trying to have a little more balanced in my diet.

Dear Food Diary:
I’ve never been a big fan of Cuban sandwiches until this past Saturday. I took at bite at The Cannibal’s Pigs Head Cuban Sandwich and wow, a flavor explosion. Hands down, the best Cuban Sandwich I’ve ever had.

The Cannibal at Gotham West Market surprised us with a brunch that went beyond eggs and toast. I want to make this my usual, regardless of what my doctor might say.

SULLIVAN ST BAKERY: Swoon by carbs

Sullivan St. Bakery - on a lazy saturday 2

Dear Food Diary:
Any given weekend morning, you can find me sitting by the window at Hell’s Kitchen’s Sullivan St Bakery with a big smile on my face. Greasy fingers, trying to juggle the camera, iPhone and my next bite of cauliflower pizza. Sweet baked goods are pleasantly chased by a simple cup of coffee before I head out to explore the city.

Swoon by carbs every time.

M. Wells Steakhouse: Wagyu Tomahawk makes carnivores happy

m wells steakhouse

Dear Food Diary:
I’ve been obsessed with Instagram lately. While browsing through hundreds of mouth watering photos last Friday, my feed was flooded with shots of an insane wagyu tomahawk from M. Wells Steakhouse.

The steakhouse has been on my list and these photos made it top priority. (I weeped when the first M. Wells diner closed down).

At 9am, I messaged my fellow carnivore J. She teased only I would get excited about steak in the morning, but jumped on a moo wagon with me, no questions asked. J, StalkerBoy and I left LIC Sunday night as very happy carnivores.
