Eating My Way Through History

I’m back after a long absence and come baring food pics for your enjoyment! I recently went on a trip to New York to visit my parents, celebrate my recently passed birthday (yay for summer birthdays!) and have a great time!

I started my trip off by filling up on coffee and delightful delicacies from Porto Rico Coffee and Sahadi’s. As we all know, I am absolutely obsessed with coffee! Most of my trips typically involve making stops for gourmet goodies, and this one was no different.

A few days into my trip, I visited Industry City with my parents and tried various treats from the different restaurants. The first stop was at Avocaderia, where I got avocado toast because it’s amazing and also, I’m a typical millennial, haha! The pepper added just the right amount of spice 🙂

My parents decided that taking normal pictures was simply not happing today 😛

My last day, I was in the mood for good food and history and decided to check out Fraunces Tavern. This historical establishment was the meeting place of George Washington, before and during and after the Revolution, and is said to be Manhatten’s oldest building. This building houses a museum with various art and artifacts from this time period. They also have a fun photo booth, for a slightly modern twist on things!

After I was done exploring the rich history and checking out interesting things, I went downstairs to discover the beer and food. History is much better when you can eat it!  I made it just in time for happy hour, and ordered some meatballs in tomato sauce and topped with melted cheese, and red mashed potatoes and a happy hour beer. It was very tasty and quite filling.

I can’t wait to come back here next time and try more food. It was the perfect ending to a week well spent!

Until next time, New York ❤
