A few weeks ago, my friend Gissele (@FeedYourSoull) and I went on a food tour in New York City. I decided to play hooky from work, hoping the city would be less crowded on a Monday. Nope. New York City is always crowded.
We made six stops that day all around the Murray Hill area. I’m directionally challenged, so I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have Gissele to follow around all day!
Our first stop, Sticky’s Finger Joint, was one of my favorites. I was obsessed with the creativity of the menu.
Chicken fingers are a childhood favorite of mine that I still love to have from time to time. The chicken fingers at Sticky’s aren’t just any chicken fingers. It’s like the adult version – with options like Buffalo Balsamic Blue, General Sticky Tso, Salted Caramel Fiesta..flavors that kids probably wouldn’t eat. The chicken fingers will blow you away, but I was really impressed with the S’mores Fries.
Next, we hit up YO! Sushi. When Giselle sent me our itinerary for the day, this is what I was the most excited for because I freaking love sushi. Who doesn’t?!
We ate a lot there, like almost the whole menu. It was hot AF out and we ordered ramen, and I still loved it.
The Lobster Roll was by far my favorite. Lobster is one of my favorite foods, so of course eating it on top a roll of sushi made my day.
We even ate sushi in taco form. Tacos + sushi, what’s not to love there?
After all that savory food, we were ready for something sweet. So we were off to Spot Dessert Bar.
I may have given myself diabetes from this stop. It was all worth it though. We tried the Skillet Cookie, Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake , and Golden Toast.
My favorite was the Skillet Cookie for sure. I’m a sucker for a warm cookie topped with ice cream and chocolate sauce. Which one would be your favorite? Tell me in the comments below!
