Don Pedro’s / MOMA / Klong

Felicia visited a few weeks ago. Tracy and Kevin Erf joined us for a big day out and about in NYC. We started with brunch at Don Pedro’s, wandered through MOMA, had an early dinner at Klong Restaurant, and went to Pianos for drinks.

Brunch at Don Pedro’s
How can you say no to a $20 3-course brunch with unlimited sangria? I tried the Cuban black bean soup, which I regretted ordering as soon as it arrived at the table. Nothing special there, just black bean soup. The Chuleta a la Jardinera was a completely different story. Grilled pork chop over rice and pigeon peas topped with a garden vegetable sauce. Delicious. Too much food for me. The big bowl of rice was really unnecessary. The coconut tres leche hit the spot once again. Don Pedro'sDon Pedro'sAn Afternoon at the MOMA
I’ve always loved museums. I even got married in one! To be honest, experiencing museum architecture is often more appealing to me than the actual exhibits. Museums, galleries and exhibit spaces were always my favorite spaces to design when I was in architecture school. There’s something refreshing about those spaces. Simple elegance with a certain clarity and subtlety that I love. During this recent MOMA visit, I think I took more photos of the museum, especially the circulation spaces, than the artwork on display.

Back at Klong again. This time, we were the first people to arrive for dinner. We ordered a couple pitchers ($15) of Sapporo for the table, and Felicia, who isn’t much of a beer drinker, apparently prefers beer when it’s warm. (Whaaat?!) John and I were still pretty full from brunch and ended up sharing the Roadside Noodles with Tofu ($9). The noodles were too salty last time. This time, there wasn’t enough sauce. The tofu was great though. There’s something very satisfying about big chunks of tofu! Klong RestaurantTaken at the W4th St station. That awkward moment when you see someone else wearing the exact same outfit as you. One of her friends noticed and came over to say hello. Haha. I look like a mess! Hate how hot and humid it is in the subway station.
