Oh New York… so many dining options, so little time. On this trip, we decided that we weren’t going to break the bank, so other than lunch at Jean Georges, that meant no 3 Michelin stars.
My summer rec hockey team suffered another loss tonight. I needed to drown my sorrows by stuffing my face full of tasty treats. We were able to score a last-minute reservation at the always busy Zakkushi and it wasn’t hard to convince my brother to come along with us.
I have a wonderful life, I know it and I’m grateful for it. 13 months after my first trip to NYC, I’m fortunate enough to return this week.

I’m constantly in search of a great bowl of Pho. Unfortunately, I haven’t found it in Vancouver yet. What makes pho great in my mind? Flavourful beef, nicely textured noodles, delicious broth. Doesn’t sound that hard does it?
