Kenka New York Japanese bars

Kenka New York Japanese bars

After work last night I went to check out Kenka, a Japanese bar in the heart of East Village New York. I fell in love with it! Quirky, colourful, addictive + bizarre (one of the items on the menu was a bull’s penis, another was fried frog). The food was out of this world + the atmosphere was communist Japan. My personal recommendation is tuna on the bone. This place is another world; an unforgettable evening in many ways! Go here if you’re exploring New York. *Plus you get cotton candy after your meal on the house! The address is: 25 St Marks Pl (Btwn 3rd Ave & Astor Pl)

South African In: New York

South African In: New York

After studying in New York, I arrived home in South Africa inspired and changed. I love New York! Every single day felt like I was in a fairytale. The flight to New York from South Africa is 14 hours. I can honestly say I was welcomed into the city with open arms. I’d always imagined New York to be an intimidating place. I was thinking “Sex in the City” and famous stars like Beyonce and Jay Z walking the streets on the flight over. Not to mention that it’s the financial capital of the world – the Wall Street Stock Exchange sounds scary. But I was pleasantly surprised with how friendly the people were and how do-able the city was.

I went with my brother to the US Open Men’s Quarterfinals at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens. I watched Andy Murray vs. Stanislas Wawrinka. It was such an awesome vibe, even Sean Connery was in the crowd! They played James Bond music during one of the breaks, he was smiling, it was loads of fun 🙂 I was shocked with Murray’s performance, he looked like he just gave up half way through. I couldn’t believe he mangled yet another racket, but I would too if I was up against Wawrinka who was playing near-flawless tennis. He deserves his place in the semi finals!
