5x must try when in NYC (original hotspots)

Hi guys and girls! 5 cool places to go when you are planning a trip to NYC! We also wrote this article for Linda Magazine in Dutch. Voor Nederlands klik hier.

1. CUPCAKE ATM (Sprinkles)

Yup, you read that right! In the Upper East Side you can find a real cupcake ATM. Just swipe your credit card and pick a delicious cupcake! You have to try this when you ar win NYC. You can go at any time of the day (just like a real ATM), because it is open 24 hours a day!


2. RAINBOW BAGELS (The Bagel Store)

It is the new hype in Brooklyn! Bagels in fluorescent colors. You might have seen the video that went viral about the famous bagels. It looks chemical and toxic, but they are actually quite tasty. And they are a perfect addition to your Instagram feed!



3. PIZZA WITH LEO (Joe’s Pizza)

What does Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper and Lenny Kravitz have in common? They are all getting often a slice at Joe’s Pizza in the West Village; one of the most famous pizza spots in NYC. The interior is absolutely not special or sophisticated, but the pizzas are to die for!


4. TRUFFLE BURGERS (Umami Burger)

You will find a burger joint on every corner, but nothing beats Umami Burger. They have a wide selection of burgers, such as a tuna burger with crushed avocado and wasabi tartare. Our favorite is the truffle burger with a side of truffle fries. Bye summer body!



What you shouldn’t miss on your trip to New York is eating pancakes in an original American Diner. You will find them everywhere in the city, but Empire Diner is truly a special experience. You literally step back in time: the Fifties! Also, this diner has often be featured in major Hollywood movies like Men in Black.
