Soft Drink Review: DyDo Grapefruit & Lemon Drink

Score: 7/10

DyDo Grapefruit & Lemon Drink is a soft drink from Japan that tastes exactly how potpourri smells. This is a surprisingly fragrant drink that had me blinking in confusion at the taste because I couldn’t tell if I was smelling it or tasting it. Whatever the case, it’s an interesting drink that tastes pretty good. I would describe the taste more as citrus, rather than grapefruit or lemon. I do recommend it, but it doesn’t taste like how it’s named.

Restaurant Review: Il Gelato (Eataly at the World Trade Center, NYC)

Official site:

After dinner at La Pizza & La Pasta, we stopped by Il Gelato for some dessert. Thank heavens for this location. If you’ve ever been to the Il Gelato location uptown then you know that the line there is stupidly long. Here however, there were like three people in front of us. Amazing.

We tried the pistachio, the lemon, and the raspberry. Surprisingly, the raspberry was easily my favorite out of all of them. They were all good, but the raspberry was spectacular.

Score: 7/10 Can’t wait to come back and a some of that raspberry gelato. Man was that good.
