When it comes to food, the big apple is too bad for someone with low self-control, aka me. It made my half-vegan-diet almost impossible!
Before you criticize, let me be clear: I am not a fan of being bony and my body is not build in that way. I’m simply trying to eat healthy so I could feel better now and when I’m old & grey.
Chelsea market has been on my list for a while (I wanted to eat literally everything there), I finally get to visit this weekend!
I know, I know, it might take me a couple of visits to go through all 38 food shops, but a girl’s gotta eat! :p
Thanks for October, the market is decorated in halloween style.
You’ll find burgers, hot dogs, MEAT…
… Dead people
… Food from other countries
I’m sure you know me very well by now, I love tacos.
There is a good taco place in the market the internet has been fuzzing about, so I had to try it!
I quickly ordered myself a curry beaf taco, it was so juicy and tasty.
Yea, I was praying before I took my first bite.. :p
Loved it! However, until the end of the trip I find out that I went to the wrong taco stand (typical).
The famous taco is actually called Los Tacos No.1 (very self-explanatory)… I was so bummed!
The market was very diverse, besides deliciously cooked food, there was a watch fair going on.
Clearly the fella wasn’t happy about my shot of him.
Another must-visit spot is the Chelsea Thai Wholesale.
I had #39, a spicy minced pork with basel on steamed rice.
Uhh, soo good.
The fresh basel flavor with a spicy twist, perfectly tender meat. I finished it in 2 sec!
Welp, now it’s dessert time and there are so many options.
You can have a nice walk within the market, it’s warm and toasty and it has many cute boutique shops.
Book store stationary
& a fishmonger
Wrap up a fresh piece of salmon fillet for dinner.
I used to love using Kiehl’s hair products, but recently I’ve switched to an organic option. It’s called Mineral Fusion, packed with natural ingredients, cruelty-free, 100% vegan!
It does wonder to my hair and my back (some products with rich ingredients give pimples on my back). If you have the same problem, it’s time to reconsider your choice in hair products.
Have a great weekend!
