NYC is Foodie Heaven!

We just returned from a fun weekend in NYC to celebrate my 30th birthday with my brother from London and dear friends. On friday we had the Pleasure of meeting Cindy from Chubby Chinese Girl and Christine from Fresh Local and best at Gyu- Kaku a wonderful Japanese Restaurant. For a more detailed write up see Christine's post, I was too busy feeding little Jasmine and talking to get many food snaps!
The food was great and the atmosphere fun, also kid friendly, yummy, grilled meats and fish, noodles and scrumptious desserts.
Cindy was a delight and so was Christine what a treat to meet such wonderful and talented ladies.

Then on saturday I meet Christo aka Doggly Bloggy from Chez What, he has a wonderful food blog as well and is a personal chef. We were going to meet him and Chef E also a personal chef, and Joanne from Eats well with others on Friday, but Chef E and Joanne were busy. Also there were two Gyu Kaku in Manhattan and Chef E was going to go to the other one by mistake! so poor Christo sat there and waited and we were at the other one!, Luckily we managed to catch up with him and his beautiful wife at Harmony Palace In China Town for Dim Sum. The funny thing was we ate at the same restaurant last time we were in NYC and sat at the same table!

We had so much fun this weekend, and meeting fellow food bloggers was the icing on the cake. NYC is foodie heaven I will so miss the food, but its great to be home and in my kitchen again in the peace and quiet of beautiful North Carolina. Also I can sleep soundly tonight without the sound of the night club below!
