My Bites of The Big Apple

No, I didn't eat my way through my week in Manhattan, although it sometimes felt (and looked) like I had.  And yes, I know the theme of this particular post is not going to support my first sentence, but what the hey.....the city is a gastronomic Jezebel and my appetite is its adoring slave.

Here's a quick look at (some of) what I noshed, and where:
Buttery baked pork bun and milk tea at Simply Bakery - 70 Bayard St, between Mott St and Elizabeth St, Chinatown, NY
Fried squid with lemon and chili at Roberta's - 261 Moore St, Brooklyn, NY 11206. +1 718 417-1118

The Axl Rosenberg pizza (tomato, mozzarella, sopressata, jalapeno, mushroom and loads of garlic) at Roberta's

One of my favourite Chinese comfort foodie haunts in Chinatown
Roasted meats galore at Big Wong Restaurant on 67 Mott St, Manhattan
Always a classic, especially if done well: roasted duck and BBQ pork with rice at Big Wong restaurant.
Stopping by for pastries at Little Big Cupcake Bakeshop at 30 Prince Street, New York

Sneaking a peek into the busy kitchen of BCD Tofu House in the heart of Korean Town on 5 West 32nd St, New York
Best appetizers I've ever had in a Korean restaurant - the new-ish BCD Tofu House - open 24 hours, no less

My Dol Sot Bi Bim Bap at BCD Tofu House
Excellent naan at the teeny Lahori Kebab on 122 Lexington Ave, between 28th St and 29th St, in the Flatiron district
So good, so spicy: LOVED the tandoori chicken, mutton curry and sekh kabab in this authentic Pakistani hole-in-the-wall
Junior's New York cheesecake : absolute stick-to-the-roof-of-your mouth yum

The hungry horde waiting in line outside Nyonya on 199 Grand St (between Mott St and Mulberry St) in New York
I liked this rojak at Nyonya a lot...the waiter cautioned us that the sauce will taste "fishy."  Well, d-uh, I should hope so.
My delish bowl of pho, complete with beef brisket and a whole lot of tripe, at Pho 32 and Shabu on West 32nd Street

Fresh summer rolls at Pho 32 and Shabu
The wonderful calamari at Porsena at East 7th Street, New York.
Another must-have in the city: durian and lychee ice cream at The Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory on 65 Bayard St
