Hosting a friend's first NYC trip is best way to Treat. Yo. Self. I mean, your friend who is visiting. You should probably treat them...
I have mad respect for Harlem. Although the nabe has experienced some social and economic gentrification, it's still predominantly and comfortably black (a hue as scarce as hen's teeth in yuppified Bushwick) and the people are friendly. My friend Eunice lives in Harlem and I had yet to pay her a visit, so when I discovered the first annual Harlem Food Truck Rally, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to catch up with my beautiful pal. The rally was held this afternoon on Frederick Douglass Blvd and Jerk Shack, Mr Nice Guy, Luke's Lobster, Shorty's, Gorilla Grilled Cheese, Crepes Truck, Hibachi Heaven and Palenque all pulled in to fatten us up.
Oh my God, I can't stop eating. And I'm still drunk from brunch this afternoon, so I'll keep it short. This weekend, I ate at Le Barricou and Café Cortadito to cure my hangover woes. Here's a little about the two.
One bitch's quest to love NYC.
