NYC Series: Night life, Chelsea Market, and Ippudo

This will be the last post of my NYC series (for now anyway-I may make another return in April!). Continuing off my last post, this past Saturday my sister and her friends took me out for the night life on the lower east side for a few drinks and some great dancing. We went to a place called Fat Baby to start then ended at Hotel Chantelle. Both places were crazy packed, but both ended up being a blast!

The next morning my sister took me to the meat packing district so that I could walk the highline. Shortly after we went to Chelsea Market to check out all the neat shops and eateries.

But for brunch I had my heart, or perhaps I should say stomach, set on ramen! So we walked to Ippudo to satisfy my craving.



When we got there, ten minutes before the restuarant opened, there was already a line! Can you believe that? We ended up being somewhere in the middle of the line which wasn't too bad.



The wait was so worth it though. Such delicious food that completely warmed me up from the inside out. Even as I write this I'm still salivating for a taste of it! If you're ever in NY, check it out. It's worth the wait.
 
Pork Buns!

All in all, my New York experience turned out great! I'm so glad I got to see my sister and I'm so happy I was able to experience the city even though it was a short while. The memories there will definitely be one for the books!
