Food Stall Review: Donuts from The Cinnamon Snail

Details: Located at the food hall Pennsy, at 2 Pennsylvania Plaza, New York, NY 10121. The official site is

Pennsy is a food court located at Madison Square Garden. The Cinnamon Snail is vegan food truck with a stall in Pennsy. I didn’t really eat much here except some blackberry donuts for about two dollars a piece. It was pretty good for a vegan donut. Tasted like a donut from Dough, which is denser and more cake-like than your average donut. If you’re vegan, you should definitely try one. If you’re not, then you won’t be able to taste a difference.

Restaurant Review: Cocoron

Details: Located at 16 Delancey St, New York, NY 10002. Official site is

Cocoron is a vegan noodle place. They have vegan and non-vegan items. They mostly focus on soba.

The space is small and cramped. Service was okay. The place was severely crowded when I went.

I ordered a bowl of Kake soba for around ten dollars. It was okay. I’m starting to realize that I either don’t like soba or that I’ve never had good soba before.

Overall, Cocoron reminds me of the stereotypical trendy noodle place that is all trendy-ness, no substance. It’s not terrible, but I don’t recommend anyone come here.

Score: 5.2/10

Restaurant Review: Candle 79

Details: Located at 154 E 79th St, New York, NY 10075. Official site is

I came here for vegan brunch because… vegans.

We sat in a comfortable booth.

I had the cranberry apple french toast for fourteen dollars. It was okay.

Overall, vegan food is still pretty depressing. Worth mentioning is that this place is really popular and was packed when we got there, which was around lunch time.
