So long 2010... December 31st

I know a lot of you bloggers are doing re-cap posts of the year, but I won't be doing that. lol I just don't have the time or patience with all that's facing me in the next month (or year, for that matter!). So instead, I'll post some of my eats, starting with...

Zen Palate. Now Zen Palate and I have a love-hate relationship. I started going to the big one that used to be in Union Square (but closed) years ago (which was really good). Then when that closed, I tried the one in the theatre district a couple times, but didn't really like it at all. Now I just found out that they opened a new location in "union square" (and I put it in quotes because it's really not in union square, but rather on 18th st. off Park Ave.). They opened in August of this year, but I didn't hear about it or try it out until now! Oh well!

I got their portobello burger with yam fries. This was really good and I'd definitely get it again. I wanted to try their "banana bliss" dessert, which is their vegan version of banana cream pie, but I was too full, so next time! I definitely liked the food and atmosphere of this Zen better (although be warned, their food is hit or miss... there is better out there *cough, Wild Ginger* ;).

On Wednesday I met up with Melissa at our usual spot, Sea Thai.

I got my usual, spring rolls and broad rice noodles with tofu.

And I was really on an asian food kick this week, as I got a lunch special from Suzie's (a chinese restaurant in the village) too.

I get their bean curd homestyle lunch special (which is basically tofu with vegetables) and it comes with vegetarian wonton soup, mini egg roll, and fried rice.

(P.S. I don't know where Wild Ginger or Suzie's websites disappeared to! Both of their restaurants are still open and thriving, yet their sites have been down for ages-- strange!)

But back to the new year... I really am starting to feel old and understand now why people drink on new year's eve! It's amazing how fast a year goes by!

Peanut can't believe it either! lol

Anyways, Happy New Year and lets keep our fingers crossed for a great 2011!!!

I also want to thank all of you for visiting my blog all year! I really do love reading your comments and appreciate the feedback! :)
