Saturday we had a food tour with Foods of NY Tours. Even if you live in NYC, you would still enjoy these tours as they have them for a variety of neighborhoods. A few of the people on our tour lived in the east village.
This was definitely a highlight of our trip. If you find yourself planning a trip to NYC, do yourself a favor and book a food tour through this company. They have tours through tons of neighborhoods but ours was in NoLita/NoHo. During our stops, we noshed on delicious treats to the tune of gourmet cupcakes, pizza, cuban sandwiches, cookies, and unique appetizers. Everything we ate was different and delish. I snapped a few photos throughout the tour.
Stop #1: The Little Cupcake Bakery
We had Brooklyn Blackout cupcakes here.
Stop #2: Emporio
We had fresh brick oven pizza topped with mozzarella, ricotta, arugula, prosciutto, and cherry tomatoes.
Stop #3: Can't remember the name but we had a Cuban Sandwich topped with garlic dill pickles and a side of seasoned kale chips. We also ordered some sangria that wasn't included in the tour ; )
Stop #4: Tacombi NYC
We tried 2 kinds of their specialty tacos: corn & pork.
Stop #5: The Smile. This place is apparently tiny so we didn't go inside.
We sampled their Ricotta & cherry tomato on multigrain which was one of my favorite tastings. So very simple yet so very tasty.
Stop #6: Our final stop was at Peels. They were slammed for brunch but had a nice little outdoor spot to hang out while we waited for the next tasting: salted chocolate cookies. These were right out of the oven and so so good.
