New York 2013
Long redeye full of not-nearly-enough sleep to Newark Liberty International Airport, unexpectedly delicious cupcakes at the airport, a traffic-filled car ride (with lots of Mandarin!) into the Financial District and then a full day in Manhattan!
Pearl did her thing with Sarah and friends, I caught Joel for lunch at Ichi Umi in Manhattan's tiny little Koreatown, and did lots of wandering afterwards through midtown, including the massive US Post Office, Macy's historic wooden escalators, and then south to Union Square and SoHo.
Did serious nom'ing on the ZOMGWTFOMGAMAZEBALLS pork buns at Momofuku Noodle Bar (I think Pearl had a foodgasm), the almost-as good ramen, and finished off with a bit of cereal ice cream and a crack pie at Momofuku Milk Bar.
