Our last day in NYC started with brunch at Junior’s. For being a diner, I was really impressed with the side salad. It was huge and packed full of veggies. And I was totally digging the
cup bowl of coffee.
WTC: Our first stop of the day was the 9/11 Memorial. It was pretty surreal, the twin reflecting pools sit within the footprints of the Twin Towers. I’d like to go back some day when the museum is completed.
Brooklyn: Our next, and final destination of the trip, was Brooklyn. It has a neighborhood feel to it and a more relaxed vibe, which reminded me a lot of Chicago. We walked up and down the streets and then checked out the views of Manhattan.
We grabbed lunch at a vegetarian restaurant called Vegetarian Ginger. Um, if you are ever in Brooklyn – go here! Our meals were less than $6 each and they came with soup, brown rice, and an entrée. What a bargain!
Ryan ordered the Miso soup, while I went with the Wonton Soup. Good stuff. I think that may have been my first time having Wonton Soup since it usually has meat in it.
For his entrée, Ryan ordered the Pineapple Soy Protein, which I helped him polish off. The sauce was delicious and I kept stealing some for my rice.
I ordered the Smoked Teriyaki Seitan. Whoa.
All I have to say is that smoked seitan was amazing.
And that was that. After lunch we took the subway back to Manhattan, grabbed our bags from the hotel, and headed to the airport. A busy, fun, and successful trip to NYC. I am looking forward to going back again, checking out some different neighborhoods, and hopefully seeing another show or two!
Oh, and here’s my last meal of the trip. Airport dinner. How said is that compared to the stuff I had been eating?
