Through My Lens : Recently On Instagram

May 29, 2017

A few highlights of the past month as seen on Instagram which serves as my unofficial food diary and love letter to NYC. I also post quick reviews here and there and try to keep my content unique so it's not a bunch of photos from here. You can see more on Instagram and do follow if you like what you see...

  • Came upon this lovely public art installation at Rockefeller Center when I was up in the area for an event. And it raises awareness for a terrific cause as well. 
  • Arcade Bakery makes some of the best pizza downtown and their special mushroom, ricotta and asparagus pizza is so good!
  • Shorty Tang Noodles offers up a taste of Taiwan in Chelsea. We need to try their famous cold sesame noodles next time we visit. I'm curious to see how they compare to mine
  • Picked up some terrific tips from the pros at Thumbtack's fun Summer SoirĂ©e!
  • I couldn't pass up a view of the magnificent nine-story Victorian atrium and skylight at The Beekman when I attended the launch of the Beekman Art Collection. It's so impressive in person!
  • I'm already big fan of Pressed Juicery so of course I had to check out their collabs with Vogue and Sugarfina. Yes those are green juice gummy bears!
  • There is new poke place opening every week in NYC but Chikarashi is still a favorite and I'm always up for trying what's new on their ever evolving seasonal menu.
  • Sushi of Gari takeout style! Their sushi is $$$ in more ways than one.
  • What I'm wearing lately... midi dresses/skirts and ankle boots

Hope everyone in the US is having a good long weekend. For most people, Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer but let's not forget it's greater meaning and be thankful as we honor and remember those who bravely made the ultimate sacrifice for our country as well as for those who still continue to serve. And can we stop saying Happy Memorial Day because the loss of those who protect our freedom is really nothing to be happy about.

  2. That pizza looks so delicious, and asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables (most likely because it is limited to a certain time of the year).

  8. You always make me drool with your food pictures, Rowena! And green juice gummy bear is something that I never seen or tried before, why no one came up with that idea earlier?

  14. That Sushi from Gari Take out is super cute. I think I’m addicted to poke bowls. I have to visit Chikarashi when I visit New York this summer. Pressed Juicery is my favorite, I’m addicted to the chlorophyll water.

  17. That first installation is beautiful and it is always good to see that some art work is dedicated to a special cause. That pizza looks yummy. I love pizza with ricotta.:) Those noodles look delicious. Midi dresses and ankle boots are a cute combination! You always have great insta shots.

    You have a point there, I wasn't sure what to say to somebody from US when it comes to memorial day. Saying Happy Holiday or Happy Memorial Day just seems wrong. I don't know...but either way I think that people's intentions are good when they say happy this or that, it is just that in some cases it might sounds a bit odd.
