because i’m fat: purple yam goodness and riding laps…

Posted in Because I'm Fat, Bicycles by yoshi on May 1, 2011

after putting together a bunch of furniture from ikea the past 2 days, it was time to treat my tummy to some good ole’ filipino fusion food at purple yam. so the bf and i hopped on our bikes and went for the short ride. i recently got over my fear of riding with no hands and i rode about four blocks or so comfortably! teeehehehe! now i can’t seem to NOT ride without hands – so easy on the back! lol.

yea yea yea....

anyway, back to purple yam…

i can’t get enough of their beef tapa (must know their recipe!) so i ordered the beef tapa salad, the bf ordered their yummy chicken adobo, along with baby cucumber kim chee. and because i just couldn’t resisit, i ended up ordering TWO desserts (because i couldn’t pick just one). we got the strawberry rhubarb topped with vanilla ice cream and banana crepe with some homemade ice cream – i forgot the flavor but it is DELISH!

    OMG girl…you were around the corner from me. Brooklyn is so small.
    Anyways, Purple Yam is fantastic. You two should check out The Farm on Adderley for brunch, Sycamore for drinks and live music (great backyard space), and Qathra for coffee. Cortelyou Road is live girlie lol lol
