The first thing I noticed is how cool the chairs were. Now I can eat and publicly cuddle with my husband at the same time! YES! Or, to let everyone know that I'm mad at him, I can pull my chair apart or (even better) switch the chairs so we have two arm rests between us (that'll show everyone in the restaurant what's up).
Hubby got the special.
I ordered the classic. Mine was much better.
I can see why everyone likes to come here so much. My ramen was delicious. The broth was pleasantly and extremely flavorful. It had such a complex combination of aromas that I really couldn't explain what I was eating. I think I'll come back here.
As we left, the waiting room was jam-packed full of people (like a can of sardines) and we had to weave around back and forth to get to the door. This restaurant is not too escape-friendly.
We grabbed some coffee after and the girl friend was very specific about which shop it was from. That's when we discover Panya. The cutest little bakery with a proud little bread man as their logo.
Tell me your heart does not melt a little when you walk by this sign.
Can I have one of each? Or maybe two? @_@
Pretty macaroons! There's an Etsy shop that also makes colorful macaroons and ships them to your house (mentioned in a previous post).
I had a hot cocoa and a green tea bread with red bean filling. It was pretty good.
We planned to watch The Black Swan, starring Natalie Portman, so we walked to the movie theater in Union Square. On the way, we passed by a lady skating inside a Citibank.
Seriously Citibank? Do you think I'll bank with you because there's a pretty lady with golden wings skating around in your window?
There was a holiday market going on at Union Square!
Hey mister, I saw you see me trying to take this picture. You just had to stand in that spot while talking on your phone, didn't you? Because if you moved, oh I don't know, maybe 5 feet to your left, you wouldn't get any reception at all.
Lots of people supporting the handmade :)
Gnome Enterprises! I know I featured your Bear vs. Tractor tee in a treasury that made it to the front page of Etsy! Nice to see your shirts in person.
Finally made it to the movie theater, which was decked out for the new Narnia movie.
Aslan is watching you.
The Black Swan was scary. I'm going to have nightmares and/or paranoia for at least a week. Other than that, it was a brilliant story. Loved the film style, allusions, and references in many of the shots. I'm so glad I watched this movie and would recommend it to everyone, but I'm never going watch this movie again. After this, I need to watch something happy, like maybe Muppet Babies or something.
I think I could go for some of that ramen right now.
