It was a beautiful day for some good 'ol New York city exploration! Along our route we passed by the Manhattan Bridge.
First stop was Vivi Bubble Tea! I highly recommend getting down there to try the Bubble Milk Black Tea buy one get one FREE!
Then we skipped on over to Tasty Dumpling Inc.. My personal favorite! If you haven't had pan fried chive and pork dumplings then get on over there! Filling and cheap we all hung out and munched on these delicious little devils. 5 Tasty Dumplings for $1.25
Lastly, we explored the Elizabeth Center Mall. If your a fan of any anime or highly popular international show(s) your bound to find various cute accessories and kick-knacks to interest you. The stores in this mall are so colorful and full that we had to really take our time to admire everything.
On our way back to the dorms we traveled through Little Italy which was still in full swing with the San Gennaro Festival. The food stands in Little Italy were so delicious looking and sweet smelling that I was tempted to buy MORE food to just have a taste.
Overall, we had a great time and I highly encourage some more exploration of China Town and Little Italy. You never know what great shops you may find.
