Mmmm, 2011 in Food

Gang Green Milkshake
If you didn't already know, I love eating. For the past three years, I have been consistently amazed at the amount of food I've eaten when reminiscing over the year. My year started with Shake Shack's take of the Shamrock Shake and some of the most delicious doughnuts ever. Somehow, my year only managed to get better.

Peanut Butter & Bacon Burger
In February, Shake Shack brought back their peanut butter & bacon burger. Your life isn't truly complete unless you've dashed through the city on a blustery winter day to stand amongst the Upper West Side crowds for this. And then there was Choice Eats. I loved Choice Eats this year.

Dough Doughnuts
Then our summers changed forever. First Brooklyn Flea opened on Sundays in Williamsburg, and then Smorgasburg came along for Saturdays. With the East River Ferry dock right next door, this has become a favorite spot for tourists and locals. By the end of the summer, I found myself wandering down to the water for a good, quick lunch.

Quality Cakes' Grasshopper
Also notable this summer was the awesome personal ice cream cakes from Quality Meats. I'm not so secretly hoping that this will continue next year.

Souvlaki GR
The Vendys helped lift my September funk, and the NY Food Film Festival kept me crazy busy and was an *incredible* ball of fun—these are two events I will not be missing in the new year. Then I was right back where I started, gushing over Chef Zac Young's Flex Donuts. I'll be stopping by tomorrow. Happy New Year everyone!

All of these snacks look delicious! Can't say I've ever tried a bacon peanut butter burger before but, considering it consists of 3 of my favorite things, I'm sure I'd like it.
