5 new delights to try in New York City
New York is probably the city where more foods are mixed to create other ones, have you realized? And every invention causes furor and lines – just remember Cronut, mixing between croissant and donut, created by chef Dominique Ansel, which led people to lines at 6 am! It’s insane, I know, but it makes everything more fun – and it causes more public interest. Since cronut, there were many inventions and today I bring 5 new delicious to experience the city – many of them fruit of a mix of existing things.

Ice cream waffle cones – Eggloo, a new Hong Kong egg waffle spot, serves three flavors of waffles, three homemade ice creams and a slew of colorful, sugary toppings. Warm and fluffy and sweet and summery in one bite, Eggloo’s waffle ice cream creations are surprisingly perfect for the season, even amid a winter weather advisory.
