NEW YORK, NEW YORK!

FAVOURITE EATS

Miss Lily’s – Spontaneous Caribbean vacation getaway.

Jamaican hut, juice bar, bakery, record store and radio station brings tropical vibes to downtown Manhattan. We fell in love with Miss Lily’s as soon as we heard the sweet sounds of reggae. The place is decked out with vinal booths, album covers and the staff are just oh so dreamy. Specialising in classic island cooking the jerk grilled corn with toasted coconut was definitely the favourite followed by the curried goat and jerk pork burgers. Washing it down with delicious cocktails like the “Pressure Drop” (sake, lime juice and kaffir lime leaves).
