Truffle tots – Tonic East

Truffle tots - Tonic East
Ketchup. $8
Tonic East, New York NY

I didn’t read good things about the food here, so I thought I’d play it safe with tater tots since I wasn’t really hungry anyway. You really can’t mess up fried tots, right? Anyways, these were actually pretty good and they give you plenty of them so it’s great for sharing.

Pork belly steamed buns – Momofuku Ssam Bar

Pork belly steamed buns - Momofuku Ssam Bar
Hoisin, cucumber, scallion. $10
Momofuku Ssam Bar, New York NY

The super fatty pork belly pieces had a great flavor, but there was just too much grease everywhere! The buns were literally soaked in grease from the pool underneath. Even the cucumbers couldn’t cut the flavor of the grease. I loved the hot sauce that came in the tiny squirt bottle (although it wasn’t very hot).

This pizza was delicious and nicely priced by the slice during happy hour! The vodka sauce was yummy and the melted fres mozzarella cheese was a perfectly simple topping. Their pizza crust is thin and tasted great. Noms!
