Donuts and Meatballs

May 20, 2016

I've been running around trying to find some new photo spots, but haven't really taken anything that I've liked.  The upside is that while I'm out I generally end up finding some pretty good places to grab food.

I look forward to my weekends because I enjoy getting up early and going out to grab coffee and breakfast.  La Isla in downtown Hoboken is always a favorite of mine, and I still get the stuffed french toast every once in a while.  Their Cuban Latte is still the best in the city.  They are open early enough on the weekends and have a nice counter top dining setup, perfect after wandering around for some early morning pics.

Another favorite of mine is Ultramarinos, a Venezuelan cafe a few blocks away from me.  You can't go wrong with chorizo, eggs, and toast.  The spicy hot chocolate is amazing.

After an early happy hour with a friend in the city, I decided to stick around for the sunset on the Hudson river.  I needed to grab something to hold me over, and didn't feel like eating at another bar.  Stopped by Pho Sure to grab a Tiger and some Banh Mi.

Sunset was great, and ended up getting a few keepers.  See my previous post.

Sometimes you just want to go to a diner and get a giant omelette and coffee.  I'm a fan of Hudson Diner right off the Christopher Street PATH stop.  Friendly service and comfortable booths.

Other times, you'll just have a craving for a donut.  The Doughnut Project opened up a few months ago and I finally decided to try it out.  They had not yet baked their chocolate and bone marrow donuts yet, so I had to settle for a coffee and the salted chocolate with buttered pretzel topping donut.  Awesome place.  I was the only one in there early on a rainy Saturday.  They were playing the new Star Wars, and I got to enjoy a funny argument between the two owners and baker regarding light saber colors.

For dinners, I am generally always happy with grabbing Italian food.  I found myself in Brooklyn waiting around for another evening shot, and ended up walking by The Meatball Shop.  I didn't even know they had a location in Williamsburg.  I like this one the best out of all three.  Bigger than the others and a nicer crowd.  I could have ordered another 4 meatballs without any problems, but I held back.

Looking forward to a rainy weekend coming up.  Maybe some reflection shots.  Mugello race on Sunday!
