Mission 193: Exploring the World, While Living in NYC

I find that one of the most exciting things about living in NYC is the myriad of food options, and I am grateful to have a group of friends who also enjoy trying different flavors and fusions. It is our goal to make it “around the world” by eating at different restaurants around NYC.

Look, we even have a map to track our progress!

She then decided to take Santiago, myself and 8 other people to dinner at a traditional dim sum restaurant, where we indulged in eating a whole duck with soft, little, white buns, and more dumplings than you can imagine. It was spectacular – everything from the old red ballroom atmosphere to the array of little plates that covered the table. For us to try new foods. For us to share in unique food experiences.

I find happiness in sharing meals with friends, spending time with good people, building memories, and exploring new flavors in this life together.

And I look forward to exploring more parts of the world, through food, with these friends!
