I just got back from New York don’t ya know. Yes. I’ve started saying asshole and mofo A LOT. This is irrelevant but any opportunity to swear and be inappropriate on my blog WILL be taken. You know this.
My god, if I don’t move to New York immediately I’ll literally take my own life just on the off chance reincarnation is a viable additional life option and I’m reincarnated in to some little New York baby body that happens to grow up very quickly so I can go to the raw places. Sigh. That plan won’t work will it? Maybe I’ll just marry a sugar daddy and get him to ship me off to New York then dump him. Hmm. Needs a bit of work, right?
So, I went to New York and it was AH-FUCKING-MAZING.
Checked out most of the raw food eateries and shops and juice bars. So many of them to talk about and I loved them all for different reasons so I’m not about to give a full review of every single one. (Read: can’t be arsed).
I will say if you’re going then check out the following:
Rockin’ Raw – my god. This place is AMAZING. Probably is my favourite of all. Desserts are agave free and made using Irish moss and no nuts etc. You must eat all the desserts. Mains are also great and cocktails are phenomenal. Go here. Go here now. Take me. Not like that. Unless you’re paying. God. I WILL stop talking about prostitution today. Maybe I’m channeling a prostitute? Possible. IS.
Quintessence – best fucking spiced fig dressing EVER! And garlic bread. And the chia pudding is awesome. And you must have the Chai Latte. It will take you to another dimension. And leave you there. With not a clue how to get home. True story.
Caravan of Dreams – mostly cooked stuff. Didn’t eat here but had the Chaga Latte. This will make you orgasm so be prepared. True story. Ok, it’s not. Mostly true, about 87%. You get my drift? When Harry Met Sally Chaga style!
The Juice Press – just down from Quintessence. THE BEST JUICE BAR EVER. I really mean it. These guys have the most awesome selection of Norwalk juices in the universe. I want to marry this shop. If it was possible, legal and viable to marry a shop, THIS is the one I’d marry. Talkin’ big time MONOGOMY. Go for the Horny Gorilla. It’s fun.
Rawvolution – bit on the small side but got some ace stuff. Check out the spicy schezuan kelp noodles (HOLY FUCKSTAINS) and the donut holes. Probably spelled schezuan wrong but haven’t the time nor the inclination to google it and the spellcheck doesn’t know so suck it up.
Lifethyme market – amazing selection of raw foods with a good salad bar. Had the best cauliflower hummus here. Someone make it and send me the recipe.
One Lucky Duck – go here for the Swan Green juice alone. And the cookies. A lot of stuff has agave. Meh.
Pure Food and Wine – best Sangria EVER. what? don’t judge! Cute tasting olives too. Didn’t end up eating here (just drank, don’t judge etc.) but so would. Might need to sell a kidney first. (Read: pricey).
Anyway I’m bored now. That’s the jist of it. So.fucking.amazing.
Here are some pics for you to drool over. Take care not to get the drool in your keyboard and break your computer and try and sue me or some shit. I properly don’t care about your computer. I gotta work on my move to New York plan and your computer is way down there on my list of priorities *points as far down as possible*
Kidding. Of course I care about you darling. Totally here for you and your drool infested computer. In return, send me money. Dollars if you can. Great.
Love you xx
