a day of cold rain & wind (despite a warmer temperature) is a good day to cuddle up indoors at a cozy spot, like a neighborhood coffee shop, drinking coffee, playing crossword puzzles and sketching for hours.
we did exactly that today, ending with a nice meal of veggie burger & beef burger.
looking forward to the sunny (and no slushy streets) day tomorrow for once!

we rode our bikes into chinatown for dinner (a so-called nyc jewish christmas tradition),
but even the plan b places were packed so we opted for the unknown,
yee li, for peking duck and veggies, which happened to be a pretty gross
experience overall - greasy food, cockroach falling from the ceiling (really),
crazy people (grownups) playing chopstick drums the whole time.
despite the bad experience, some sesame bubble tea
and a fun ride through the rain washed it off our palate, thankfully!

a nice cozy dinner on christmas eve at dokebi,
with my perennial favorites, dukboki and gyoza.
then a slushy bike ride through the city,
ending a nice evening with some japanese desserts
and yuzu tea at panya.
slushy snow ride was fun, despite my flat that set us back
about 40 minutes patching it up in the cold.

a nice walk through the snow to feed a friend's super cute kitties,
then a stopover to get some coffee and xword.
our walk back home was so much snowier, and now it's a few inches on our windowsill.
yay the first real snow this winter (and at our current place) - so exciting and pretty!

fun home cooked veggie dinner & movie (food inc - appropriately) night.
julia made a great casserole dish with apples and squash!
+ btw, the movie is highly recommended - it wasn't anything any of us there were not too familiar with through michael pollan books, but still shocking to see them in a documentary format. also highly recommended is the corporation.

supercore recently launched a new lunch special menu
that i've fallen in love with.
today we went to try their weekend brunch menu,
which is a platter of 3 choices, mine being :
tofu hamburg, egg salad, and avocado.
made my day and cleared my memory of the bad food the other day.

lunch specials at our old favorite place, taro sushi, was sadly disappointing.
the kara-age (fried chicken) came pale beige, nowhere near GBD(golden brown & delicious).
the result was a mealy floury texture - gross!
my chirashi bowl was better, just not great as it used to be.

i've been on a non-mea t food kick lately possibly due to
all the heavy food i'd been eating during and prior to thanksgiving.
today's choice was breakfast sandwich and the "merckx werckx" at bone shakers.
they have the best vegan sandwiches in the world.
and vegan cookies!!
