The city that never sleeps always has a restaurant open for people to eat. Thousands of tourists travel each year just to get a taste of the amazing food New York City has to offer, however, when it comes to finding aesthetically cute food and drink items, it has always been a mystery to me. Social media fills my expectations high as I constantly see beautifully filtered photos of precious treats and dishes. Anyone who sees it wouldn't doubt the idea of traveling across the country to simply capture a photo for themselves.
As the food scene is ever-changing in the Big Apple, it tends to overwhelm me as I question where to eat for my next meal. Being an avid "cute food" seeker for many years, I decided to create a new blog series where I share picture-worthy foods and drinks that are delightfully pretty to look at! I hope this encourages you, whether your a tourist or a local, to try these amazing menu items at the selected food spots I personally enjoyed during my trip.

In the middle of downtown Denver, you'll see a dome-shaped restaurant at the corner of E 17th Ave and Pennsylvania Street with strung lights and a huge open patio that looks inviting to anyone who passes by. The food scene in the city is one-of-a-kind in the nation, but having a Asian Fusion restaurant called "Ace Eat Serve" can catch your eye among the many eateries around the block. It was my last night in the city in celebration for my birthday and I knew I wanted to dine at a popular food spot with amazing food, great service, and a charming ambiance. Luckily, I was able to find all those qualities the evening I visited Ace Eat Serve.
As a travel blogger, I am always on the hunt to find local eateries that create concepts that are unique. It was evident from the moment I stepped foot inside the restaurant they value creating a dining experience that's memorable. With upscale Asian fusion dishes, retro interior design, and a huge play area for ping pong, keep reading to find out why my visit at Ace Eat Serve is one-of-a-kind.

In the midst of honking cars, tall skyscrapers, and walking pedestrians, I was on a quest to explore delicious, creative, and aesthetically-pleasing food. Being in New York City, I quickly learned that the food scene is one of the finest from its diverse and culturally-fused selections. However, from all the food spots, is there one that cooks healthy and delicious vegetarian food? Although I am not a vegetarian, I have been recently eating meat way less and preferred tasting vegetarian and vegan options while I was in the city. When Nish Nush opened their doors for me to try a sample of everything in their menu, I was absolutely floored with their amazing, flavorful food.
Nish Nush is known for its traditional Mediterranean dishes cooked with fresh, quality ingredients daily. Not only do they offer vegetarian food, but they include gluten-free options in their menu, too. In a matter of a few short years, they have been one of the most popular vegetarian restaurants in the city ranked 4.5/5 stars with over 500 reviews in Yelp. Prior to my visit, I did not know what to expect with my lack of knowledge in Mediterranean food. However, I was excited to experience tasting their delicious menu.

The food options in New Orleans are endless. In every corner, you're bound to see amazing seafood, delicate pastries, and classic po' boy sandwiches, but one thing I always admired about the NOLA food culture is how businesses are finding innovative ways for customers to have unique eating experiences.
With Drip Affogato Bar being the newest, hip dessert bar in the city, there's no question to how much attention they got from the short amount of time they were in business. Presenting a dessert that all coffee + ice cream lovers will enjoy is a treat that any local or tourist will love.
I've always wanted to take a mini weekend road trip to Austin, and when I was planning out the itinerary, I knew I wanted to find a local bakery that fulfilled my sweet tooth cravings. Because of this, I did my usual method of finding out the best bakeries in Austin: Instagram. When my friend helped me stumble upon Bribery Bakery in Mueller, I knew I had to stop by this adorable, charming bakery bar! Bribery Bakery is a local eatery in Austin, TX where they offer great tasting coffee and sweet treats during the day, and great cocktails for a perfect girl's night out! What makes this cute bakery so popular in the city is the bright pink decor and their pride for creating sweets that are enjoyable to eat. Being a huge lover for pink and tasty treats, my visit to Bribery Bakery Mueller did not disappoint.
It's been a while since I posted about my foodie adventures, but with all the trips I am planning, I have honestly been saving my food budget money to cooking at home. However, this bakery has served a rightful place in my blog. French Riviera Bakery is a local bakery and cafe located in the Houston area, and it's a convenient 10-15 minute drive near the Houston Galleria Mall.
Aesthetically, the cafe has a sleek black sign with a building design that has red brick walls and white stone bricks. The building has a contemporary design to it, but it does captivate the essence of a Parisian bakery. Upon entrance, the building is painted with a beautiful warm shade of yellow, and the decor of the restaurant has delicate plates against the walls, fresh plants, and pretty draping from the curtains. I was surprised on the vast seating area!
Oh Tokyo, home of the most innovative fashion trends and tourist attractions...if I knew you would also welcome me with open arms to your delicious food, I would have traveled sooner! During lunch time, a friend of mine reserved a spot for us at the Kawaii Monster Cafe on a Monday afternoon, and although it was a work/school day for most people, I was surprised to see a long line of people waiting for a table outside. My friend mentioned that the restaurant recently opened at the beginning of the year, and it has been a growing hot spot for tourists around the world. Prior to visiting Tokyo, I already saw pictures of Kawaii Monster Cafe. From their gumball bathroom sinks to their carousel in the middle of the restaurant, I was looking forward to dining there. As my friend briefly spoke with the restaurant greeter at the front desk, we were able to quickly enter ahead of the people waiting. I didn't know what to expect entering inside, but I instantly felt like I was in a club/amusement park/high class restaurant. The music was blasting and poppin' with their Japanese techno-electric music, and when my friend and I were seated at our reserved table, our chairs resembled the spinning teacups you would see at Disney World. Because every corner of this cafe was filled with bright color, food decor, animal decor, and flashing lights, I could easily tell that Kawaii Monster Cafe would be great for tourists, families, and fans of Harajuku style.
