Yesterday, 2 of my roommates and I headed on a little Bubble Tea and Cupcake date to two of my favorite places! I'm positively obsessed with bubble tea and thankfully, we're not too far from Chinatown, where the absolute best of the best bubble tea lives!
(Do y'all like the dramatic liner? It's Stila's Liquid Liner! I'm obsessed!)
We stopped at Kung-Fu Tea off Canal Street in Chinatown and I got Taro Tea with bubbles and my roomies opted for Black Milk Tea with bubbles. They were so delicious!
We perused Chinatown for awhile then made our way to the Soho Brandy Melville, on Prince Street, and browsed around in there. It was such a fun walk from Chinatown over to Soho because there was just so much New York we got to experience and take in. We even passed the FRIENDS Central Perk pop-up shop; the line was ridiculous!
Eventually we made our way over to one of my favorite Cupcake/Brunch/Lunch shops, Sweet Revenge, in the West Village. My sister used to work about a block away from the store so we would sometimes come in and get ourselves some cupcakes and chit-chat.
Today, I got the 'Crimson and Cream' Cupcake, which is one of my favorites. It's Raspberry Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and it's INSANE. I also got a Arnold Palmer (Half Iced Tea/Half Lemonade). My roomies opted for the 'Dirty' Cupcake, which is Valrhona Chocoalte Cake with Dark Chocoalte Truffle. It's amazing as well!
It was such a fun day and I was glad to share some of my favorite places with my roommates! It was also gorgeous outside and fun to just meander along the streets of New York and take everything in!
Do you have a favorite cupcake shop in New York or in your hometown? I would love to know!
