Culinography: Stroopwafels

Skankynavia: Nikolaos Strangas Cakeaway (CPH)

Cupcakes Amongst Tragedy

Walking down towards work yesterday, I was rerouted several blocks due to the horrific crane incident on Saturday. 52nd was blocked off completely to 3rd Ave., and 2nd Ave. was a mess of dust and debris; firefighters and cops running around with walkie talkies; St. Patrick's Day freaks; and...

Gift This: Kyotofu for Vday

Valentines Day is coming up (BARF), and while I am usually cynical about this day, you can win me over with a box of yummy treats from Kyotofu. I'm so easy! As Sonja reviewed in December, Kyotofu is a cutesy little restaurant specializing in nouveau t0fu in the unexpected...
