Eating my way through New York, Lower East Side

This foodie was so obsessed by everything she tasted that its just too much for one blog post, so be prepared ;) Just kidding, I will try to stick to my absolute favorites. 
Our apartment was located in the Lower East Side, surrounded by East Village, Little Italy, Chinatown and the amazing SOHO!

First stop was Russ & Daughters, a New York landmark when it comes to fine smoked fish, quality caviar and specialty foods. Its starts already in the queue, the shop is run by the fourth generation of the Russ family, where you can admire friendly family pictures from the current and past. The shop is super popular among the New York in crowd with people cramming up at the door on sunday morning, causing a 2 hour long waiting line!! But oh men that lox and cram cheese bagel is more than worth it!

This is definitely heaven for salmon bagel lovers like myself ;). You can choose from a wide range of fishy bagels and an ever bigger range of cream cheeses, take your bagel to another level with caviar cream cheese for example ;).

Every morning I woke up early to pick up some healthy muffins, fruit and coconut water at Wholefoods, O my why don't we have a Wholefoods in Holland? 

Located just across our apartment was one of the coolest wine stores I've ever seen, September wines and spirits. Because of the holiday season all the wine bottles were decorated with a little red bow. September wines is a wine dealer that sells earth-friendly wines and supports smaller wineries from all around the world. This store is worth the visit of you are a wine lover! If you happen to be in New York, keep an eye on September's website since they organize regular wine tastings.

And last but not least I tasted the best New England Clam Chowder at a lobster joint on Houston Street, when I got home I was obsessed by finding the perfect recipe to recreate this heavenly soup, I my search was successful, I will show you the results of course!

Ok and when it comes to cupcakes…. That will be a whole new other post!
