#foodpost - Stuffing our Faces in New York City

So, we got back a week ago and luckily for us our post travelling blues were curbed by the thoughts of seeing our family and friends after such a long time. Not to mention Christmas in the UK.... TV dramas on the sofa, piles of mince pies, Christmas decorations in Manchester city centre and all the warm pubs to get merry in.

I didn't want to write a huge post on our time in New York because I think it would be impossible. We crammed as much into our time there as possible and I really wouldn't know where to start! But.... I did think a post about food wouldn't be so bad... We ate enough of it!! 

So... As sad as it sounds... Here's a big list of our favourite places we found/hunted down/were told we had to go to in New York.
