July was filled with many eating delicious foods and adventures. These photos are just some of it.
This is my current obsession, the plate of chili sesame noodles at No Name Bar by Chef Lindsay Salminen in Greenpoint. While I find the noodles to be a little bit too al dente (not your usual silky and smooth noodles from Chinese joints), I do love the sesame flavor, the SUPER wideness of the noodles and the seasonal greens on top. Also the intimate feeling I get while sitting at the counter directly outside of the kitchen.
One of my dream is to go to Japan during winter time. Find a random ramen cart, get a bowl of ramen and slurp away while it is snowing outside. So the basement of a bar in Greenpoint is far from being a roadside ramen cart in Japan but it'll do for now until I get my butt over to Japan.
Early Sunday night. Walking from Williamsburg to Greenpoint. Sunset. Days getting longer. Far away the Manhattan skyline. The Empire State Building visible from where I was standing. Happy days.
