So Local NYC — Food
Cumbia & Sabor — Sunnyside, Queens
So great! It was my first time having Colombian food and it was really good. I had chicken, rice & beans, and sweet plantains with a sweet passion fruit drink. A very friendly vibe with great music too.
Pete’s Grill — Sunnyside, Queens
To me, there is nothing better than closing out a fun night by eating a good meal with friends. I love a 24 hour eating place. Pete’s Grill was our favorite spot. We went after two nights out. They have good french toast and omelettes.
Zora’s Soul Kitchen (Hell’s Kitchen)
Chicken & Waffles is one of my FAVORITE dishes so when I saw that Zora’s Soul Kitchen had it I knew I had to try it. Zora’s did not disappoint!
Zora’s is a cozy soul food spot that is a nice separation from the busyness of the city right outside. Their cornbread and sweet tea is extra good too.
Pizza Village Espresso Bar — Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn
Enjoyed a great slice of pizza with buffalo chicken and broccoli.
Havana Cafe - Schuylerville, Bronx
I had brunch with my friend Tasha at Havana Cafe. It was my first time at a Cuban restaurant and I enjoyed the vibe. The french toast was good along with their breakfast potatoes.
Lunitas — Clinton Hill, Brooklyn
I went to Lunitas for brunch to catch up with my friend Dominique. It’s pretty much a day cafe/coffee shop. I had a great Veggie burger that was made with kale and quinoa and a good strawberry tea.
Smile — Flushing Chinatown, Queens
Oreo flavored Thai rolled ice cream! So good! It was only $5 which is quite cheaper than it would be in other neighborhoods.
Smith’s — NoMad, Manhattan
Enjoyed a great brunch with my Mom for Mother’s Day weekend.
Gabby’s Pizza — Queens Village
This place has the BEST veggie pizza I have ever had. Just one slice is pretty fulfilling.
Cookie Do (SoHo)
A cute shop. They have multiple flavors of cookie dough and ice cream. The cookie dough was good but a little much for me to eat even though I only got one scoop.
