PICTURES SPEAK A THOUSAND WORDS. PLEASE BE PATIENT AS IT DOWNLOADS.
From the city of the melting pot and beyond, this is my bird's eye view on food. As a foodie, my choice for discussion will always be food related; either through my own preparation; or restaurants that strike me for its: 1) taste, 2) presentation, 3) value or creativity. Food is beautiful. And sharing its beauty delights me. I hope that you enjoy and learn something new each time you view! Join me!
Can't wait for summer for ice cream from the Big Gay Ice Cream truck parked in certain areas in New York City. It's soft ice cream with creative toppings. My favorite is this salty chocolate. I've also had olive oil and sea salt topping. He can also create something not on his list labeled outside his truck. He's usually on 17th Street and Union Square around 2PM-5PM, Monday-Friday. He also hangs out in the East Village and other spots. There's usually a line. I've seen curry and coconut - but I didn't try that. He's done tamarind too.
This is a destination!
May 2011: The truck is back! Yesterday, I ordered a spicy peanut butter lined cone with salt, dipped in Chocolate and dribbled with olive oil.
He had to serve it on a plate because it had olive oil on it. It was delicious. You should order this!
