This was going to be the start of my New York food diary but I decided that Champs Diner was so spectacular that it deserves it’s very own blog post. Located in Bushwick, pretty close by to the über cool Williamsburg, Champs is an old school American diner with a friendly feel and an extensive menu. Champs was our first and last stop on our Food tour of New York. This was probably our joint favourite place although so hard to choose.
On the first visit, I went for the Chik’n Pesto sandwich and my boyfriend had the Pulled Pork burger made from marinated seitan. Both were incredible. We also couldn’t resist a side order of sweet potato fries which came with the most amazing curry mayo. Highly recommended.
On our second visit, as it was our last day we went all out. I had the Tuno toasted sandwich and the bloke had the bacon cheeseburger which did not taste unlike the McDonalds equivalent. He loved it! We also had a side of Tempeh wings and washed it all down with a shared chocolate milkshake which was another triumph.
By this time, we were beyond stuffed but the delightfully friendly waiter gave us some giant chocolate chip cookies for the plane!! How nice! We devoured these back in London. In conclusion, Champ’s Diner was fantastic. Great atmosphere, wonderful staff and incredible food. If you are visiting Brooklyn, be sure to make this your first stop. http://www.champsdiner.com Thanks for reading. London Vegan Bird
