Green Tea Mille Crêpes, Latte made with Stumptown Coffee
For those who follow me on Instagram, it’s not hard to see that I love all things green tea (it’s actually plastered in my Instagram bio, l-o-l). I am utterly obsessed with it, and not only in the form of tea but in dessert of all kinds – green tea in cake, cookies, ice cream, macarons, tiramisu, pancakes and waffles, hot chocolate, smoothies, crêpes. You name it, I probably have tried it, dreamt of it, and/or will be down to try it.
On my trip to New York this past September, I aggressively sought after a slice of the famed Green Tea Mille Crêpes cake twice at Lady M’s original location in the Upper East, and once at their cake boutique in Midtown. Each time, to no avail. The third time I was right behind another customer who had ordered the last slice—man, that Green Tea, such a hot commodity at Lady M! You either have to get there fairly early to order a slice, or get there around lunchtime and brave the long lines. So instead, my boyfriend Steve and I tried their Signature mille crêpe, and their Strawberry Shortcake, which were both really enjoyable. But the fact that I was so close to trying the one thing I really, really wanted and couldn’t have, I’m sure it altered my experience.
Tranquil Tea Lounge feels exactly how it sounds. It’s tranquil, kind of chic and modern but still cozy. It boasts an extensive list of delicious specialty and organic loose leaf tea blends, along with a great selection of delectable sandwiches and best of all, one of the most extraordinarily satisfying desserts I’ve ever had.

Brunch – my favorite time of the day to eat. To me, the word equates a quiet-but-borderline-lively time in a quaint place, with good food and the best people (the ones you eat with, and even the ones who are just around you- I don’t know how to explain it, I just simply love it). I look forward to having brunch often, and when I travel, I make it a task to try as many new spots as I can.
I’m a HUGE ice cream enthusiast. If I stumble upon a creamery that I haven’t had, you can bet I’ll try it out even if it means spoiling a little bit of my appetite for dinner. As morning time summer treats, a mid-day snack, before-dinner sweets, or an appropriate after-dinner dessert, and fall or summer, night or day, ice cream is the best pick me upper of all.

Hello! …from the first post on my first-ever food blog. It’s been a long time coming, but I decided to scrap every small effort made towards an old, complex layout and chose out a simple one instead. Just need to get the darn old thing started, you know?
