It should be noted, though, that public bathrooms were revolting regardless of neighbourhood. Yes, even hotel bathrooms in Financial District were incredibly disgusting.
Few picks from the Jungle Brown series were located: small/medium Dino Brown plushies were no longer stacked on the shelves. Other skins (Penguin, Pig, etc.) were also gradually dwindling away.
- Snapping a photo with the gigantic Brown fixture
- Obtaining one (or two) Dino Brown massage stick(s)
- Purchasing a Brown-themed handheld fan
- Potentially appending a Dino Brown plushie to my collection
In addition, the Times Square location did not retail the same product types as Korea at the same time. The Brown-themed handheld fan that I had desired so greatly was never found.
We began sauntering in one direction, only to find ourselves walking away from Blue Bottle. My compass seemed to malfunction on several occasions while during this trip, and I was informed that it may have been a consequence of the heavy use of steel in the city.
Despite most sidewalks bearing a heap of unsprayed trip hazards, this neighbourhood was very reminiscent of Yorkville and featured renowned retailers and wide sidewalks whose tiles lay flush. Most importantly, it felt cleaner, even if it was by the most delicate amount.
The menu differed slightly from LA (Broadway). I wasn't complaining though.
Ultimately, the beverage proved nothing similar of sorts. It was good, but not as strong as advertised. Moreover, its contents were perceived to be relatively uniform in depth and hue.
The specimens were extremely crumbly, though it did contain subtle notes of rosewater, which I enjoyed. The lack of structure was probably owed to the decidedly low butter to flour ratio: fingertips remained clean even after picking up cracked pieces of cookies for munching.
The spicy red sauce was not applied since we knew we could not tolerate the burn.
Few options are imposed, but that's could conceivably be reason why the crew can operate at such rapid speeds and remain successful with the tried-and-true picks.
I would still choose shawarma over The Halal Guys any day, even if it's not my eatery of choice.
