Direk Tonette reviews her food adventures in New York
After packing up the shoot for her upcoming Valentines movie featuring LizQuen, Direk Antoinette Jadaone found some time to recharge with two of the things she loves most, next to her beau, director Dan Villegas that is.
Direk Tonette recently shared snaps from her visit to the the popular Magnolia Bakery in New York where she sampled the bestselling banana cupcake that that fans are raving about. She also gave it a thumbs up.
Next is the Lady M crepe cakes which she loved so much she didn’t even notice that they were gone.
Direk Tonette also took her foodie self out of the M Bakery to indulge in Chef Christina Tosi’s Crack Pie from her famous Milk Bar Store, some guacamole, Adsilog and Lonsilog on Mexican tortilla bread which is basically the Mexican version of our Tapsilog and Longsilog.
How Direk Tonette managed to share her review in one Instagram post, and even add some choice anecdotes and personal opinions, we cannot fathom but there it is, to serve as reference for your next travel to New York. ANGEL ONG

My travel philosophy: travel often, eat well. But when in New York, eat well nambonggang-bongga!!! . 1. Good ol’ Magnolia Bakery vanilla cupcake. May branch na sila sa BGC. Pareho ang lasa! Kulang lang ng ambience ng New York, pero pweds na! (Unlike Halal Guys na sobrang ibang-iba ang lasa sa New York orig version. Angyare kaya?) Try their banana pudding too! 2. Finally, na-try ko na ang Lady M crepe cakes! Sarap teh. Burberry light lang, di mo namalayan, naubos mo na pala. Pag tatanga-tanga ka, baka makaubos ka ng isa pang slice. 3. @christinatosi’s famous @milkbarstore crack pie! Been wanting to try this since watching her Chef’s Table episode. Na-try ko na dati ang cereal milk soft serve niya (GUYS PAKI-TRY PO JUSKO PAKASARAP – PWEDE NA BA AKONG INFLUENCER ATE CHRSITINA???), so it’s the crack pie’s turn now. PAK!!! Sarap! Napaka-light and easy. As addicting as crack daw kaya crack pie ang tawag. Di ko ma-confeerm, ayoko ma-tokhang, pero try it!!! Next visit, ‘yung birthday cake naman. Iniisip ko nga rin bakit di ko na rin tinry nun no? Babalik pa talaga for that? Anuto, SM lang? 7-Eleven? 4. Guacamole!!! 5. 4 days lang sa New York, pero nag-Pinoy food agad sa 2nd day?! This is Adsilog and Lonsilog on Mexican tortilla bread (they call it breakfast taco) – from a Filipino-Mexican resto Swell Dive in Brooklyn. Sarap! Bitin lang pero pwede namang kumain ng tatlo ($4 apiece). Mas recommended ko ang Longsilog!!! I’ve also tried Jeepney in East Village before – highly recommended! Filipino fusion naman. Woohoo, Pinoy cuisine! 6. Last but not the least, my favorite New York staple (STAPLE?!?), Luke’s Lobster’s lobster roll. Ang mahal pero sulit. Babalik-balikan mo talaga. On the way na nga ako now.
