While I love sitting down and savoring a delicious meal in a restaurant, sometimes grab-and-go is the only option when you’re short on time 😬. One of my all-time quick meal place or a quick-before-work-breakfast spot is Bar Suzzette! 😍

Bar Suzette serves a big variety of sweet and savory crepes making it one of NYC’s premier Creperie! They serve paper-thin pancakes πŸ₯ž with a great fusion of filings! πŸ™ƒ
Recommended: Try the French onion soup inspired crepe, with melted onions, gruyere, black pepper and thyme or create your own sweet version by choosing among items like Nutella, butter and banana.πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ #ruchyum #ruchyumrest #barsuzette #crepes #nyc #newyork #ilovenyc #finalcountdown


Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant, in New Jersey is till date my favorite Ethiopian restaurant! No where else does the traditional ‘Doro Wat’ taste this good!πŸ˜‹ Trust me! πŸ˜‰

Ethiopian cuisine characteristically consists of vegetable 🍠 and often very spicy meat πŸ– dishes. This is usually in the form of wat, a thick stew, served atop injera, a large sourdough flatbread, made out of fermented teff flour. Ethiopians eat exclusively with their right hands, using pieces of injera to pick up bites of entrΓ©es and side dishes. Utensils are optional 🍽

The spices used resonate well with our Indian taste buds making it one of our favorite go to places! Thanks @rkeni and @supriya_kulkarni308 for introducing us to this gem! πŸ’Ž

Java β˜•οΈ innovations continue at Coffee Project New York as they construct the Deconstructed Lattes! πŸ˜²β˜•οΈπŸ™ƒ The latte is broken down into an ordered, three-glass flight: espresso, milk 🍢 (pasteurized at a lower temperature to imitate the taste of the raw stuff) and then a finished, fully-composed latte. β˜•οΈYou are able to single out individual flavors as they linger on the palate, before reconciling them in the completed product. The accompanied water πŸ’¦ and cookie πŸͺ are used for cleansing palates!
Woah! Isn’t this a true java innovation?! 😍

I have always loved 😍 restaurants with a specialty, and Mandoo Bar, a bright little Korean place, leaves no doubt about its signature dish, the dumplings πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ (Mandoo, pronounced MAHN-do, is the Korean word for dumplings)! Another cool thing about the restaurant is as you enter past a glass-enclosed kitchen, you can see πŸ‘€ the chefs rolling and cutting dough, stuffing and folding it into little flower-shape 🌺 or half-moon πŸŒ™ dumplings until trays are full and they are ready to be cooked! πŸ˜‹
