Looking For

Lucky's at NY, USA

Miss Naughty and our friend Bryan decided a while ago that we'd buy tickets to New York during our time in the USA and go for six days, five nights so we could play tourist for under a week and do some sight-seeing of the most iconic New York places it has to offer.

We stayed at a friends' place within the Midtown East area up around First Avenue and found this gem of a local; Lucky's Cafe. Inside is set up with a small bar reminiscent of what might be similar to a NYC diner with high bar stools propped against the counter for people to dine there and then stainless steel tables and chairs lining up the rest of the dining space.

There's a lot of people who look like they could easily be regulars or locals to the area; business-dressed men stopping by to grab and go, workers in overalls and hard hats on a break from the nearby construction across the street and then there's us - the token tourist (ie: me...) wielding a big Canon DSLR that just screams "Tourist!" a mile away. 

Chantelle insists to try out their massive burgers served with crispy golden french fries and our choice of drinks was Chocolate milkshakes which ended up giving brain freezes to my friends and for me I opted for the Iced Coffee (pictured above) which you get to add the milk yourself to the coffee which turned out to be really strong. 

I forgot what the Menu name of my burger was written down as but I vaguely recall what I ate - a decent sized thick beef patty, caramelized onions and brown mushrooms all stacked in-between a sesame sprinkled bun. Picking up the burger with hands just seems like the essential thing to do to eat this at the time!

Our friend and NYC personal guide Chantelle then took us to see places like the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center and Grand Central Station during our trip. This is probably the most greatest interstate trip I have had so far!
