Tasty Tuesday (NYC Edition)

Happy Tuesday! 

Over the weekend I went into the City with my dad for a Daddy/Daughter Date! :) We decided to take the day to do some exploring around the Upper West Side.



One of mine and my dad's favorite things to do it eat lol! We LOVE trying out new places and new foods! We are definitely foodies!


For lunch we decided to try out a Vegan restaurant that I had heard a lot about, Blossom. There are a few different locations through out the city. We went to the one on Columbus Avenue. Let me tell you this place was worth the wait!! The interior was so pretty! Very warm and inviting.



First we ordered some drinks. My dad decided on a Mint Julep. As I was looking at the drink menu trying to figure out what to order, I saw this drink and it had my name written all over it! ;)


How perfect!! Not only did they look pretty, they tasted even better! Cheers!


Now for the important part, deciding what to eat! :) Everything on the menu sounded amazing! I wanted to order one of everything lol!



Now my dad isn't a vegetarian, but he is game to try anything. So if this food passed his meat eating palette then I knew it would be a win. I decided on the Vegetable Lasagna and my dad went with the Seitan Scaloppini and we agreed to split our dishes with each other.

Well dad approved!! The food was just absolutely incredible! I was a little sad when my plate was empty :( lol I wanted more! But we had to save room for coffee and dessert.



We decided to share the Orange Creme Brûlée. We couldn't eat it fast enough! I was so good! As my dad said "You would have never known it was vegan!"


After walking around for a good four hours, we needed a little pick-me-up. Off to Starbucks we went.

Tall iced PSL with coconut milk ;) Dad got a Salted Caramel Latte :)

Last but not least, after a little more walking around, we had to end the day with a stop at 
Momofuku Milk Bar. We had to try their popular CerealMilk Ice Cream. 
It really lived up to the hype! It tastes like the milk at the bottom of the cereal bowl but in ice cream form! I got the regular version and my dad got the CerealMilk Affogato which was the ice cream drenched in espresso ;)


We had such a great day! I can't wait to do it again! 

Let me know what you like to do on your Daddy/ Daughter or Mommy/Daughter dates! You're never too old to spend time with your mom and dad. Whose else knows you like they do! ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by!
