One thought on “NYC Veg Food Fest: the eats

  1. Just one?? Can I have all of it please? I should not have looked at your post after just coming home from work when I am most hungry. IF I had to narrow it down, I would have wanted to try the easter bunnies and the empanadas.

    All of it looks so good though.
