Anastasia and Artichoke (NYC day 3)

Saturday was the main event. The reason we came to New York City. The Musical.

But before the musical, we went to Black Tap in Midtown for lunch and milkshakes. Again, huge portions! I should have shared a meal with my sister because I could not finish mine. It was delicious, but I was already full halfway through my burger.

What we knew we’d all share though: THE MILKSHAKES. These things cost $15 EACH so yeah, no way I’m having it all by myself. So pretty. So tasty.

Cotton Candy & Sweet n’ Salty


Cotton Candy is a strawberry milkshake topped with cotton candy and some chocolate pearls, while Sweet n’ Salty is a chocolate & peanut butter milkshake topped with M&Ms and Reese’s Pieces. Personally, I liked the chocolatey goodness of the Sweet n’ Salty, but they’re different from each other. The first one was more subtle and sweet, while the other was more intense and full of flavour.

After the musical, we headed to SoHo to Dominique Ansel Bakery. The birthplace of the cronut. Unfortunately, they were sold out by the time we got there, but we still lined up for the cookie shot and the blooming hot chocolate.

After treating to ourselves to more sugar on this day, we figured walking the High Line would balance everything out. The sun had already set by the time we got to the High Line, and I worried that it wouldn’t look as pretty as it does in the day. I’ve only been there during sunlight, and most of the photos I’ve seen were during daytime as well.

​I was so wrong.

I actually liked it better at night and didn’t mind that it was a tad chilly. I got to appreciate the contrast, the lights, the *skyline*, and most of all… our last stop.

The other highlight of the day: Artichoke Pizza.

The best pizza I’ve ever had so far in my 25 years in this world. I usually go for a typical Meat Lover’s or Canadian, but this cheesy and veggie savoury delight won my heart and stomach at the first bite. The hour-long wait we endured for this treasure was definitely worth it. I can still taste it as I write this post right now. I would go back just to have this again.
