Out and About
Anyway, I walked from 51st Street to 30th, which is the start of the High Line. I stopped for dinner at The Lot on Tap, which is the place Mom and I ate tacos with Kurt in early June. When we were there, it had just opened, so it wasn't very crowded. This time, there were five trucks offering Korean barbecue, flatbread pizza, grilled cheese (called Gorilla Cheese -- Mom would have picked that one for sure), ice cream sandwiches, etc.
I lined up at Korilla BBQ and ordered a "Ribeye of the Tiger" burrito. (Photo credit: Yelp.) It had veggies, a smoky mayo sauce, summer kimchi -- it was delicious! For dessert, I got an ice cream sandwich from Coolhaus. Not my fave...none of the flavor combinations were really calling my name, so I ended up with a s'more cookie and coffee/Oreo ice cream. Too many flavors. I scraped out the ice cream and tossed my cookies (how often do you get to use that phrase?). They were good, just not worth the calories. The truck supposedly has some famous foodie fans (Jeffrey Steingarten), so I hope to see them again for a chance at redemption.
Then I strolled home and enjoyed the city lights.
Next time I think I'll say I'm headed to the Jersey Shore!
