Well this time I didn't walk too much before realizing that I was heading the wrong direction. I quickly navigated myself with my trusty GSP, but still took considerable effort in finding the right direction on 6th.
On my way over, I saw the most amusing sign -
Finally, after considerable trekking across the Flatiron district, I arrived. While waiting for my friend, I browsed through their endless selection of fresh salads, sandwiches, desserts, snacks...the coolest thing on their menu is bulgogi burgers, which is basically a burger but with Korean-style grilled marinated beef inside. It's very Korean influenced, so I'm assuming that their owner is also Korean.
They also sell these amazing macaroons that come in wondrous flavors. I should really get these babies for a wedding dessert table.
Like the one with the flower on top? (furtherest right)
Tofu with seaweed, sugar snap peas and water chestnuts
The tofu tasted AMAZING - soft, tender, yet firm enough to hold on its own. It also absorbed the soy sauce sesame mixture nicely. The sweet red peppers blended in with the slightly spicy green peppers, adding to a color fiesta inside the doughy tofu. I later found out that the store actually makes their own tofu, which is why its has a silken smooth texture in your mouth. The seaweed was dressed with a sweet sauce, which I really liked, and the sugar snap peas were crunchy and retained the original flavor.
Hubby, who is also a health nut, got a spinach salad with olives, shrimp, red peppers, chicken, and artichoke hearts.
He used to gasp as the price at Sunac when he was living in NY, but just having come back from Toronto, he was surprised that everything was so cheap. Guess the inflation is really hitting the T.O.
It was a lovely quick meal with a good ole' friend. We actually bumped into another mutual friend of ours while deciding what to the eat, and the mutual friend said that he was just thinking of hubby as he walked it, because guess what? Hubby always gets their pecan tart! I jotted that down - will get hubby that tart once he recovers from his root canal (poor baby, must be because of too much sweets!)
