The NYC Food Hotspot: Big Daddy's

One of the things I wanted to cross of my New York bucket list was eating at an American style diner. The kind that you know from the movie Grease where you can eat burgers and drink pink milkshakes in a cute booth and pop a coin in the nearest jukebox to play your favourite old school songs. New York probably has a few of them, but I decided to visit Big Daddy's on the Upper West Side (they also have a location near Gramercy Park) and it made all my Riverdale Pop's Diner dreams come true. 

Since it was not that busy I was able to sit in a blue booth -bucket list moment check!- and the old school vibes and incredible decor made it a real 'I can't believe I'm in New York' moment. Their menu is huge with so many kinds of pancakes, eggs, shakes and other yummy stuff. They do burgers and mac & cheese too, but since I was there at 09:30AM I thought pancakes were more fitting. After contemplating for what seemed like forever I went for cookie dough pancakes and a cotton candy milkshake -doesn't that sound like THE dreamiest breakfast?-. I know that a heavy creamy milkshake is more an afternoon kind of snack, but since I was only going to eat there once on my trip I felt that I had to pick the best things on the menu. What even are calories?

The pancakes were freaking delicious. Don't have other words for them. If I can even produce words to describe those fluffy babes filled with warm chocolate chips and cookie dough. The shake was so pretty too and tasted amazing. Save to say I didn't finish my enormous meal. I probably ate 1,5 pancake before giving up and sipped on my free water -which I LOVE btw, here you still have to pay for a glass of water, like what?!- I also want to give a shout out to the waitress who gave the most amazing service and was so nice. Big Daddy’s is one of my faves now.

If you are looking for a real American diner experience I 100% recommend this place. It totally looks like you have stepped in a movie set of Grease with music, booths and decoration included, the food is amazing and they give large portions too. I will definitely come back next time I'm in New York!

Have you ever been to New York?
