This post is about the day I spent out with my friend, Man Lee. She basically put up with me for about 6 hours (which ended up with me buying onions) so she could show me downtown/uptown/midtown/everywhere-town Manhattan.

Man Lee, being the observant friend she is, realized that I like food quite a bit. So she arranged for us to stop by Gyu-kaku, a Japanese barbecue grill.

I haven’t had much time or ingredients to cook lately, which is why I’m posting so much about restaurants I went to.

Today we went to Krazy Jim’s Blimpy Burger. I was really craving some greasy diner food lately, so this was our pick!  I was really excited to come here since I was told that it was featured on the Food Network, so I was expecting a very good burger.

I wasn’t disappointed! Blimpy Burger sort of gives off the “hole in the wall” restaurant type of vibe. The price is also pretty reasonable. It was about $5 for a burger with fries.

This past week (01.17-01.22) was “Restaurant Week” where we are. Basically, a lot of the restaurants downtown (which are normally priced higher than a student’s budget) offer meals for a little cheaper than normal.

A lot of places offer lunch for $12, and some places had a “2 for 1” deal.  My friends and I went to “Blue Nile“, an Ethiopian restaurant that had the “2 for 1” deal. It was a competition between Seva’s, a vegetarian/vegan place, and Blue Nile, and honestly, I’m glad Blue Nile won out.

The staff were very friendly. Being the camera foodie that I am, I asked if we could move to a seat by the window so I could get better shots of the food. The host immediately said, “Sure, sure! That’s no problem at all!”

On the 2-for-1 $12 menu, there were four items. My roommates, friend, and I ended up getting two different dishes, the ZilZil Wat and Yedoro Tibs, with different vegetable sides as well as a cup of spiced Ethiopian tea. Our tea arrived first.
