I tried to capture as many photos as I could.
When B used to be at office, I would often step out and go for a walk around the blocks near the hotel or shop. There was a Walmart, a Burlington and Macy's at the three corners of the next block and I have spent hours there. Later I found a Dollar Tree too. And there was no stopping me after that. I shopped like crazy.
I will share a few photographs of the days that I spent in the beautiful White Plains city.
Below is a snap of our suite.
This was my favourite spot and I used to stand and watch the world go by.
Here, the streets are being vaccum cleaned of dry leaves since there was a forecast of rain for the following day.
They have a grand Mediterranean restaurant that serves awesome food.
This is one of the doors.
I loved their Bacon pancakes served with honey, fresh cream and Maple syrup.
The guy helpfully pointed out that a plate will have six of these and maybe I should go for half a plate.
Look at the size ... it was still a lot for me.
B had omelette with fries, bread and butter.
I used to make the waffles for both of us and we would take different syrups or compotes with them.
There would be a scrambled eggs everyday and some sausages too.
I did not opt for Mexican food ... which you will get in abundance there ... as I am not too fond of it. But I got to enjoy a Peruvian dish called Lomo Saltado .... which is made of marinated meat strips and stir frying them with onions, bell peppers and some sauces.
It is served with rice and I absolutely loved it.
The chicken plate.
The beef plate.
The whole place was filled with the aroma of barbequed food.
This was our quick breakfast at Buffalo airport, before we rushed to catch our cab to Niagara.
We did eat a lot of Indian food when in New York Not only because we were missing home food but also because we craved some wholesome, tummy filling food.
One such place was the Coriander leaf. They serve wholesome Punjabi food and it was first class. If you are in White Plains, this is one place to eat if you want some really good Indian food.
They have a branch in New Delhi too.
They serve a fried Edamame as starter ... it is so tasty you will wish they had it on the menu.
We had dinner twice there and then took a friend the third time.
Another great place where we often ate good Indian food in New York city is the Grand Central station.
The stall goes by the name of Indian Spice and serve some very good, wholesome Indian Punjabi food.
Good food ... but nowhere close to Coriander Leaf in White Plains.
That is all about the food scene from our trip to New York. Most times I used to be so tired and famished that I did not have the patience to click a picture.
So this is all for now. I will update this post if I come across any more food photographs.
Rockefeller Center and Top of the Rock coming up next.
