Congratulations on a successful grand opening weekend to Ruze Cakehouse & Teaspressa! I had a great time experiencing a taste of heaven on earth, you fall for the charm the moment you walk in the door! I was in love with the white walls and lush accents, and died when I saw their macaroons... they are literal pieces of ART my friends. Cheers again to the sweetest spot on Main Street!
With time off work, my sister and I took things easy during my second day in town. We walked around the city, made a pastry pitstop, and met up with her roommate for dinner.
Random thoughts include:
- How in the heck is New York's tap water so refreshing?
- How long until I experience a celebrity sighting?
- Why did I imagine there'd be more hot dog stands throughout the city?
The last time I was in New York I realized that I never really had a full meal with my sister. Can you believe that? I mean, I guess we were just too busy having the time of our lives... but still, it was unacceptable!! So we set out on a mission that turned up a quaint restaurant serving authentic Mexican cuisine in Long Island City called Casa Enrique. It was Michelin-Star rated and happened to share our dad's name, so naturally we had to try it. With a reference to home, it was also fitting to enjoy the experience with The Shridharani's, who are my sister's New York family. We indulged in watermelon margarita's, mole enchilada's, marinated pork tacos, and more: I can still taste the custard perfection that was their flan! The only thing I'm disappointed in is myself for not taking a photo of our entrees, UGH! (*throws head back and makes Tina Belcher groan.*)
Oh well, it's just another reason to go back. :)
