I never even made a dent in my recommendation list and what I've realised with this my second visit, there's always something else. Walking down random streets lead you to places you've heard or seen previously, another new beer, a different take on a cuisine that you want to try. It really is something else.
It's always hard to compare a holiday destination with where you live, but right now I think New York smashes London, but we're moving in the right direction.
As for burgers, this year I've eaten(not finished blogging) in over 10 states and feel in the right place to make comparisons with USA and the UK. Maybe controversial, but the UK's best burgers are better then the best the USA has. The meatloaf patty and crusty buns we've had for so long, them days are gone but our 'average' burgers are still miles behind. You can get a cooked to order burger in a petrol station in New Mexico. You get a McDonalds in ours. That's not a dig at McDonalds either, I love them.
Thanks To Zan and the Clay's for sorting out our accommodation for our trip. A huge expense spared and we got to stay in a real New York apartment. Looking at booking my next trip to the states already.
Here are other snippets of food from my trip that I'll never get time to talk about, but certainly recommend.
Doughnut Plant - Creme Brulee Doughnut
KyoChon - Korean Double Fried Chicken Wings
Old Shanghai Deluxe - Tung Po Pork
