My Latest Obsession – Orchard Street NYC

I have been living in New York city for about three years now and I have never been to any new places other than the typical tourist attractions. I visited the same places almost ten times now with different sets of people. I recently started discovering NYC through Instagram posts and various other blogs.

I saw these cute bears on MissChloenyc‘s profile and wanted to visit them so bad. They are on display at Galerie Perrotin through June 8, 2019. Sadly, it was closed the day I visited -which is when I decided to just stroll on the streets and fell in love. Orchard street is one of the main thoroughfares of the neighbourhood. With so much history and culture, it can be difficult to navigate through the sprawling district but its totally worth it. 

I started from the Essex station which has a beautifully tiled fish all over the walls.

That’s me trying to pout like the fish 😛

I made a quick stop to grab my bubble tea at this very cute tea place (DIU TEA).

The seven blocks between Canal and Houston Streets are lined with historic tenements, trendy eateries, boutiques, art galleries, and second-hand clothing stores.

P.S: This is a very small part of Orchard Street and there is so much more to do.

Instagrammable dessert Places in NYC

As said in my profile, I love clicking pictures so I can relive the moment when I see the pictures randomly some random day. I will keep updating this post whenever I go to a new dessert place.

  1. Vivi Bubble Tea IMG_20180407_091944_701I did not like the ambience very much, but was told about their renovation plans. I   tried the Matcha Bubble Tea Floats. My Insta It blew my mind. They also give you steps to eat the floats which I felt was so cool. Vivi Bubble tea has branched out at various places in NewYork city but the floats are found at Allen street. Vivi Bubble Tea

  2. Maison Kayser cafeIMG-20180414-WA0030-01My Favourite is Mangodoor not just because of its taste but also  for its bright colour. Tell me who just eats food just for the sake of taste these days. It must be instagrammable rite ? Maison KayserIMG-20180414-WA0032-01They have an exclusive variety of desserts which can be instagrammed. Good luck taking nice pictures 😛
  3. Magnolia BakeryIMG-20180414-WA0026-01Magnolia Bakery is a chain of bakeries founded in New York City.  As a newyorker you ought to have tasted from this place at least once. Magnolia BakeryIMG-20180414-WA0020-01The first bakery was started at Bleeker street in 1996. But we have been to the one in Grand Central before catching our train. Oh ! Did I tell you New York has the best public transport which is cheaper and faster than private. Instagram PageIMG-20180414-WA0022-01.jpegI have ordered cheese brownie, pineapple cake red velvet chocolate. Needless to say everything was amazing. But I personally like the cheesecake from Junior’s cheesecake (other bakery from NYC) better than this place. But the pineapple cake and the chocolate are too good.
  4. Coco Fresh Tea & JuiceIMG-20180414-WA0045-01.jpegCoco Fresh and juice also has many chains in NewYork. These people actually mean it when they call themselves fresh. Coco Bubble Tea I had to wait for 10mins to get my regular bubble tea, but the wait was totally worth the time. This might not be one of those fancy places to take pictures but the taste was unbelievable. P.S: I crossed the road twice to take this picture !
  5. Sugar Fina 

Screen Shot 1940-01-15 at 8.14.34 PM-01Sugarfina is the ultimate candy store for grown-ups offering the Original Champagne Bears. The people in the store are so friendly that they allow you to take pictures even if you walk out buying nothing. I don’t see many places like that these days. Sugar Fina

 

 

 

 

I am not a great fan of milk chocolates but I love white chocolates so much that I forget counting calories when eating them. I picked XOXO chocolates. I have tried plain chocolate and plain gummy bears but these had champagne bears within the chocolate bar which is a must try.
