My jetlagged zombie walk took me down to Financial District, where I decided to try and find a place to eat. Not because I was hungry, but more as a preventive measure, so I wouldn’t wake up hungry in the middle of the night, when it was breakfast time in Dubai.

Last weekend Hanna from Tripsnkids and I were in Munich, where we stayed at BOLD Hotel Munich Giesing. Such a stylish place! I wonder who they hired to decorate the rooms, because that person is most welcome to come by my flat in Dubai and work some magic.
The first night in New York, I stayed in TriBeca. It took quite a while to get out of the airport and into the city, so it was 7pm before I checked in at the hotel. Jetlagged and miserable, I went out for a walk in the area, trying to build up an appetite, but my body kept arguing that it was past midnight and thus way beyond bedtime. Dinner? No thanks, but maybe Red Bull and coffee?

Good morning from Bold Hotel in Munich. After a good night’s sleep, we were ready to attack the breakfast buffet, which was served in the hotel’s restaurant on the ground floor. After Zürich, I’ve had this thing for Bircher müesli, so I happy to find that among the buffet items.
Excuse My French is a charming French tapas bar with really nice food. You know, one of those places you would love to have just around the corner from where you live. The restaurant is located on Orchard Street, which is Lower East Side’s hipster highway, so I had noticed the restaurant before, but the timing was never been on my side, and the tiny restaurant had always been full, when I was hungry.
I love ramen so when I was in New York with Trine, I decided it was time to introduce her to the joys of the noodles too. The big ramen wave hit New York some 10 years ago and today, you can find really good ramen places all over Manhattan. As a matter of fact, I think New York is one of the best cities to get tasty, authentic ramen outside of Japan, and Hide-Chan is one of my all-time favorites.
I consider myself vege-curious, and for a long time, I’ve wanted to try Amanda Cohen’s Dirt Candy on Allen Street. The restaurant is 100% vegetarian and all dishes can also be made vegan. It’s often very difficult to get a table for dinner at Dirt Candy, and you know me and my non-existing ability to plan more than a couple of days ahead.
After a busy morning in the city, I wanted to treat myself to something tasty, so when I saw the big “Oyster Bar” sign outside Grey Lady, I was easily lured inside. It was just after 3pm and I was the only guest in the restaurant.
