A tapas restaurant located in meatpacking, just by Pier 57. You can enjoy some jamon and a rioja in their divine rustic atmosphere.  It’s the perfect place to have dinner after a long shopping day, remember they don’t take reservations so come in time.

The Standard Grill.

Its that chic New York Meatpacking feeling. The hotel does not just have the chicest restaurant in the meatpacking district but also the best burger. They have a terrace and a garden where you can hang after your dinner with a delish penny drop, my favorite dink made of ginger and vodka.

Spice Market.

The Asian restaurant in New York. They serve the best papadums and the most delish wok. If you like spicey and tasty, spice market is the one Asian lounge your should pass by.

 SOHO

Fika.

Its like coming home when you in New York. You have a great “fika”. Big coffee and a cinnamon bun. Sadly I discovered this place way to late on my vacation but I recomend you to pass by one of their cafes when your in New York. They have 3 different locations over Manhattan: Downtown, Midtown and one by Central Park.

 

Hope you will enjoy some of these tips when in New York!

When I am not haning around the blog,I am here.

 

MEZE

Igår gjorde jag något så enkelt och smakrikt som olika mezes.  Lite marinerade kycklingspett, couscous och två olika mezes. Meze är egentligen smårätter som serveras innan huvudrätten men jag älskar att göra små mezes som tapas och lite bröd.
Går snabbt, är hälsosamt och massor utav energirika proteiner.

Hummus

Kikärtor

Tahin

Paparika pulver

Persilja

Kummin

Vitlök
Hacka persilja. Mortla vitlöken med lite olivolja. Tvätta kikärtorna. Släng dem i en mixer. Tillsätt lite tahin, jag använde 1,5 matsked var försiktig för tahin är som ett serum, rätt stark och med en mycket rund smak från sesamfröna. Tillsätt lite persilja, paprika pulver och kummin efter smak.

 

Feta Meze

Feta ost

Creme Fräsch

Timjan

Vitlök

Blanda allt med en stav mixer, vill du ha en mer krämig meze tillsätt mindre creme fräsch. Tillsätt timjan eller annan krydda för mer smak.

 

Yesterday I did something as simple and tasty as meze. Some marinated chicken sticks, couscous and two different mezes sauces. Meze is really small dishes served before the main course but I love making small mezes as tapas and enjoy with some bread.
Is fast, healthy and has a lot out of energy-rich proteins.

 

Hummus

Chickpeas

Tahin

Paparika powder

Parsley

Cummin

Garlic

Chop the parsley. Grind the garlic with a little olive oil. Wash the chickpeas. Throw them in a blender. Add some tahini, I used 1.5 tablespoon careful for tahini is like a serum, quite strong and with a very round flavor of the sesame seeds. Add a little parsley, paprika and cumin to taste.

 

Feta Meze

Feta cheese

Creme fresh

Thyme

Garlic

Mix all ingredients in a blender, you want a more creamy meze add less creme fresh. Add the thyme or other seasoning for more flavor.

FARMERS SALAD

Idag gjorde vi en bond sallad. Det är så himla fräscht, enkelt och marigt. Vi kokade nypotatis, ägg och stekte sparris.
Vi blandade därefter alla ingredienser med lite oliver, tonfisk, tomater och basilika. För att ge salladen en tvist tillsatt vi parmesan som gav en perfekt brytning till det matiga ingredienserna.

Today we did a farmers salad. It is so amazingly fresh, simple and perfectly fills your tummy with the best energy. We cooked potatoes of the season (which are smaller then the normal ones), eggs and fried some asparagus.

We then mixed all the ingredients – olives, tuna, tomatoes and basil. To give the salad a dispute we added parmesan which gave a perfect accent to the savory ingredients.
