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.

Dough, New York NY
Mmm, I liked this donut. The dough was really nice and had a good chew to it. I thought that it was too heavily glazed though especially since the hibiscus glaze was very sweet.

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).
Stateside saison beer. $9

Aztec chocolate ice cream, tequila cherries, toasted almonds. 3 course brunch $19
Fuego Cocina y Tequileria, Arlington VA
This sundae was delicious and I think it was the tequila cherries and its juices that put it over the top! The Aztec chocolate ice cream was also very yummy.

Vodka sauce, fresh mozzarella. Happy hour $3.50
Rubirosa, New York NY
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!
