Braised Beef Poutine

So I had tried the Butter Chicken Poutine as seen in my post before, and so I decided to try the Braised Beef Poutine from New York Fries as well. It’s got a bit of carrots and pieces of beef, and the sauce is similar to gravy. Pretty good, but I would go for the butter chicken instead.

Butter Chicken Poutine

I’m a big fan of poutine, and when I heard that New York Fries came up with a Butter Chicken Poutine, I got really excited! Butter chicken is already good, and now with poutine? I wondered what that tasted. Indeed, it was really fatty, but so delicious! A great twist to the normal poutines out there. I believe they also have a Braised Beef Poutine. Definitely go try these new poutines!

Revolve around NYC!

The View Restaurant and Lounge is situated in the New York Marriott Marquis hotel, on the 48th floor. It’s a revolving restaurant and gives you an amazing view of New York City, especially Times Square and the busy Broadway streets. It is the only revolving rooftop restaurant in New York and makes a 360° turn every hour. I even spotted the Empire State Building! So of course all I have to say is that the scenery and environment is just simply amazing! We went for the late night dessert and cheese buffet, and were given a variety of desserts to choose from! All very unique and delicious! YUM!

White Castle in NYC

Original Slider and Cheeseburger Slider

What are you craving? Are you craving what Harold and Kumar craved for? White Castle? That’s exactly what I was craving for when I knew I was going to New York and so I did a search to find where the closest one would be. Luckily it wasn’t too far from where I stayed, but when we got there in the morning, there really wasn’t anyone inside. Seemed a little shady, but I guess no one gets up for fast food that early? I actually had no idea what these little sandwiches really were. So they basically are square shaped sandwiches that are REALLY tiny. They’re also known as “sliders”. Each one was under $1 though, so I guess that’s the reason behind? Apparently, they make them so tiny so you can have several different flavours to try each meal. The original slider basically had nothing but a meat patty with onions and pickle. The cheeseburger had an extra slice of cheese. Their burgers also don’t have any condiments like ketchup. That’s apparently the way White Castle burgers are supposed to be like. I think they’re a great change from McDonald’s or Burger King, so why not give them a try if you see a White Castle? Hope you’re craving them as badly as Harold and Kumar!

Olive Garden in Times Square, NYC

Smoked Mozzarella Funduta

Oven-baked smoked mozzarella, provolone, parmesan and romano cheese. Served with Tuscan bread.

Ravioli di Portobello

Portobello mushroom-filled ravioli in a creamy smoked cheese and sun-dried tomato sauce.

Chianti Braised Short Ribs

Tender boneless beef short ribs slow cooked in a chianti wine sauce. Served with portobello mushroom risotto and steamed vegetables.

Pretty sure most of you have seen Olive Garden around the States even in nearby Seattle. Well I finally decided to try it on our trip to New York and we had it in Times Square. The wait was extremely long even though it was already really late, but I guess that’s just how busy Times Square is! The food was delicious and the environment was very pleasant. I wouldn’t mind going again, probably in Seattle where the wait would be shorter!
