Things I Ate & Loved: Brooklyn


Written by:

I’ve officially lived in Brooklyn for over a year, which basically makes me an expert on all things Brooklyn. And now somewhere a hipster just fainted. Probably because his pants were too tight. Or because his handle bar mustache finally revolted back to the late 19th century where it belongs. But I digress. Since G & I take way to many pictures of food (much to the deep mortification of my Brooklyn bestie who is actually a Bklyn expert, Tay), I thought I’d share a food guide on the TOP TEN restaurants that I’ve tried in the last six months. Please do not read this on an empty stomach. No seriously, I wrote this on an empty stomach and now I’m binge-eating trail mix and defrosted Ikea meatballs. Not the best combination.



Things I Ate & Loved in Brooklyn 

Malted Pancakes at Sundays in Brooklyn. Yes that is a square of butter.


Sushi at  Taro Sushi


Breakfast Sandwich  Norman– I would eat this every day.

Hot Dog at Nathan’s. Modeled by my friend Geraint. he’s a singer. You should follow him. 

Bee Sting Pizza (Off menu) at Roberta’s

Mussels in Williamsburg. Specifically Traif. I want a bath sized version of the broth.

Brooklyn Blackout Cupcake at Ovenly . So they just opened down the street from me. I have real problems.

My fav ramen outside of LIC at Chuko 

The best plain pizza that you may have to wait 4 hours but its BYOB so there’s that.  Lucali

    Definitely evoked some food envy over here. I’ve got my eye on — also, try Paule Gee’s if you haven’t 🙂
