NYC food spots that are worth the hype

New York has been on my bucket list for years so when we finally booked a trip in May, I was beyond excited to see and feel the energy of this city. We were lucky to stay in East Village, which is one of the most up-and-coming gourmet destinations in Manhattan. Seeing so many options around us, we felt inspired to try as many restaurants as possible. With that in mind, we gathered recommendations from friends, travel blogs and our local…

Last weekend we decided to check out the recently opened Elephant Grounds Cafe in Wanchai. I had visited the tiny shop in Gough Street (Central) a while ago and I remember thinking this cafe deserved a bigger space. Happy to see it finally happened! It was already 5pm so I decided to go for a non caffeine option and try their Matcha Latte. It was really delicious and super filling. I got some weird looks when I put my latte over the…
