Crime scene: New York New York
Location: E!Hub, Downtown East
I’m back from a HHUGGEE hiatus! Exams, exams and exams have been killing my braincells at an incredulous rate, so nothing beats a short vacation away from the hustle and bustle of city life and the Internet. Oh, and good food, of course!
First night’s dinner was at New York New York, located at the ground floor of E!Hub @ Downtown East. Since Boyfriend and I were vegging out this vacation (weird choice I know), there were limited choices on the menu for us. NYNY is, after all, well-known for its myriad of meaty mains and to-die-for desserts. So Boyfriend and I decided to share a drink, Fajita melts and veggie pasta (the only obvious vegetarian option).
I forgot what the called this on the menu, but it’s just aglio olio with mushrooms and capsicums, and they charged $9.90 for this. FOR THIS! The price asides, it actually tasted pretty decent, although I had added a splash of Tabasco sauce to up the flavour of the olive oil.
We had actually ordered this by mistake, but the Fajita chips redeemed themselves with a crispy first bite and soft sliced mushrooms on the inside. The salsa was bland, and I had to prevent myself from emptying the bottle of Tabasco sauce into the salsa. I could make better salsa than that.
