Hamburger with "the works" from Burger Joint in Le Meridien Parker Hotel, NYC. Who would've thunk a chi-chi hotel would have something so common?
The Double Stack burger from Shake Shack in NYC. This divine burger is made of fried cheese sandwiched between two portobello mushrooms, another layer of American cheese and the delicious Shack burger. It's worth braving the 45 ...

Grandmother-style pizza. It's pretty darn good here at Adrienne's Pizza Bar in NYC.

Verger macaron...sounds exotic but can you believe this could be found in NYC, where macarons are usually a disappointing scene.

Scandinavian herring. Who would've though of such flavor variations (Vodka lime, curry, and ceviche) for such a humble fish?
Unadulterated cake at its best - sour cream pound cake. No frosting needed - just a touch of whipped cream and berries. It's just what you need as a nice summer dessert.

This is arguably the most expensive hors d'oeuvres I've ever seen and eaten my entire life.
My love for Grom is infinite until recently they did level the cups (in NYC). It turns out it was a training problem. *sighs* I miss Grom.
I just love the flavor combination of strawberries and rhubarb. It's a match made in heaven. With a scoop of creme fraiche ice cream, it's even better.

Gorgeous latte art.
Chocolate dipped port soaked fig...possibly the best chocolate dessert.
