We left Katz Deli full and satisfied and began to walk back to 1st Avenue, turning north towards East Village. There we would meet one of Andrew’s old friends from Stuyvesant High School who recently graduated from Fordham University and lived in the area.

Bras strewn across Coyote Ugly’s doorway, lost or left here?

We walked and passed by Coyote Ugly on the way, the original Coyote Ugly, the one the movie was based on, filled with its tales of drunken late night mischief. We passed by and wondered what went on there at night (Andrew himself had been with a friend or two before and reminsced about an awkward moment there).

We met up with Andrew’s friend and quickly saw Veneiro’s Pastry Shop nearby and we couldn’t pass up the prospect of savoring a dessert after 6 meals already. Sweet surrender.

Veneiro’s Pastry Shop, a relic of Italian cafe’s past, founded in 1894 over 115 years ago here in East Village, would become our 7th food item on our hitlist today. It was approximately 2:55pm and 3 hours into our food binging New York experiment.

Inside, the dimly lit pastry shop showcased its pastry goodies from homemade cannoli to cheesecakes to pignoli cookies, tiramisus, specialty cakes and carrot cakes, this place is dessert paradise.

The girl behind the counter was courteous and kind, giving us suggestions and various tips on what to get. I was cautious but my friends must have been under a spell.

We had a delicious cannoli topped with green colored pistachios, a perfect creamy cheesecake topped with strawberries, and a heavenly raspberry mousse tart /cake. All were scrumptious and savory morsels of Italian pastries.
