It’s hard to come here and NOT gain a ton of weight.

Because naturally, I wanted to hit up all the latest and coolest foodie spots in town.

AKA. The most “instagramable” spots in NY that will probably cost an arm and a leg, but so worth it for the gram.

So if you about that Instalife, here’s where to go and what to order:

Melts in your mouth, not your hand @blacktapnyc #freakshake #getinmybelly #m&ms

A freak shake from @blacktapnyc

They’ve got burgers and fries, but the real MVP are these freak shakes!

Pro tip: there’s usually a crazy line out the door (go during off hours 2-4pm on a weekday). Take the shake outside for a photo (inside is way too dark).

Leggo my eggloo! ????????@myeggloo #nyc #NewYorkEats

An ice cream waffle from: Eggloo

Mmm… warm crisp waffles + ice cream = the perfect combo. Eggloo is a small (hole in the wall) shop located in Chinatown on Mulberry st, just a few blocks from Little Italy. This one looks good AND tastes delicious. 

A fish creme cone from: Taiyaki

This is New York’s latest IT spot. You start by choosing a flavor of ice cream  (black sesame, match, vanilla or chocolate). Then pick a filling (custard or red bean) and a drizzle (chocolate, caramel, condensed milk or strawberry). Last you get to choose 2 toppings, or add more for 50 cents.

PS: The ice cream melts pretty fast, so make sure you find your photo backdrop first.

Excuse me #FlatironBuilding, you’re blocking my view ???? @iceandvice #NYEats #NewYorkCity

A shake or shaved ice or ice cream cone with a donut on top from: Ice and vice

Usually I’ll spend a ton of money on something like this and end up throwing it out because it’s too sweet. But this actually freaking delicious.

They’ve got the craziest combos. Think: two scoops of ice cream on a cone, topped off with a DONUT or two.

A churro ice cream cone from: Chikalicious

Pro tip: Ask for an extra cup to put the ice cream into when you’re done taking a photo (if you’re lucky, it won’t be melted all over your hands and shoes lol).

Diet stops here ???? JK. What diet? ???? #cookies on steroids.

Cookie(s) from: Levain Bakery

Yup. Pretty sure these are cookies on crack. The are super decadent — crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside.

Pro tip: break the cookies in half and hold as much as your hand can handle for an epic photo.

A filled croissant from: Union Fare

Mmm the green tea matcha. I die. This is what it’s suppose to look like when you cut it open.

And this is what ISN’T suppose to happen when you’re going for a food porn video lol.

PS: they insert the filling from the damn BOTTOM. So be careful when you eat it.. it might just drop on your foot.

    Have you tried the cronut from Dominique Ansel Bakery? It’s pretty good, but you have to go early.

      I walked inside, saw the crazy ass line, and immediately walked back out haha. For sure need to come back again though!

      I definitely shared most of it! But the shake from Blacktap was a little too sweet for me. Looks pretty though ;)
