New York is famous for a lot of things but the best thing for me has been FOOD! New York has plethora of options on anything you might wanna eat. I'm a huge dessert junkie and as soon as I came to New York I started trying out as many places as I could. As a result, I have now found the *BEST* desserts I have eaten in my life! So I'm sharing my favorite places for desserts for you to try.
1) Eileen's Cheesecake
I had heard a lot about New York cheesecake and I ate a lot of New York Cheesecakes too. But no other Cheesecake hit me so hard as this one. Eileen's cheesecake is the best you will EVER have. Its velvety smooth and literally melts in your mouth. It has Just the right amount of sweetness and will leave you wanting more. And the best thing about Eileen's cheesecake? Their cheesecakes are tiny bitesize! so you won't feel bad about cheating your diet, nor feel bad about having more than one like me🙈 In true New York style, they have tons of options in flavors and all of them are just as fabulous and so aesthetic.
And my favorite,
Eileens Special Cheesecake
2) Magnolia Bakery
Only reason I went here is how aesthetic the place is, and also cause I saw Carrie and Miranda eating their cupcakes in Sex and the City. The place became famous in the 90s, and it’s still going strong. This place is not only cute, it’s absolutely delicious as well. The place always smells so amazing, and everything they make is Gorgeous! Let’s start from their cupcakes, They are so pretty and they taste more amazing than they look. the cake is soft and moist just the right amount and the buttercream toping is velvety smooth, I'm salivating just thinking about it.
But the hero of the bakery is their *Banana Pudding*. I can assure you that its the best you'll ever have. It's a treat for your taste buds. The creamy pudding with vanilla wafers inside is the combination you didn't know you needed. There always a line outside the store and its absolutely worth it! So just go ahead and get the biggest cup, you don't want to miss this!
3) Levain Bakery
I was saving the Best for the last. So congratulations for making it to the end, here is the treasure: Levain's cookies! Who doesn't love a chocolate chip cookie, but no one makes them like Levain does. The cookie is the ideal size that you always want: huge! Its crisp on the outside and soft and chocolaty in the inside. When you break the cookie it oozes out chocolate! Is there anything better than that? I seriously doubt there is. The cookie is huge but so delicious I always finish it. But you can save if for tomorrow or share with your S/O. Its the perfect partner to your coffee.
They have five flavor, Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie, Two Chocolate Chip Cookie, Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip cookie, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookie and Oatmilk Raisin Cookie, they're all amazing but the BEST, The Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie is to die for. Good news! They are now selling these cookies in Whole Foods too.
