From the big lights in the big city (New York City) my friends and I travelled down to the Big Easy (New Orleans, duh) for a Cajun-Seafoodtastic flavour explosion. New Orleans is a city apart in the United States. Louisiana in general, and New Orleans specifically, are truly and culture and identity completely unique to America.
Having been a pescatarian for about 10 years, I decided to become a meat-eater again on my arrival to NYC. So once I heard about the Bo Ssam at Momofuku Ssam Bar, I needed to gather up some friends to tackle this meat-eating challenge with me.
Yes, I’m still alive, just been MIA for a little while. But now I’m back! And I start my year with a post on the Evolution of Gastropubs in Chicago, London and New York City.
The past few NYC posts have been rather long, so this time I’m shortening it! Less photos, more eateries! Here I am writing short features for different categories of eateries. As these places are ones I’ve found on-the-go, I had to use my iphone to take pictures, unless I had my camera with me that day.
So for the past few months, I have been hard at work eating my heart out. Luckily I don’t own scales so I cannot say whether my body size has been affected by this, but I’m pretty sure it has. That’s one thing to watch out in NYC… the heaviness of the food!
