We’re hoping you’ve started planning your great expedition to the city that we call home – New Haven! YMUN 2012 is only 2 days away.
It cannot be said that New Haven has the stellar image of most other college towns that pepper the East Coast, and it doesn’t have the sunny weather that our Californian counterparts have to offer. But regardless of what’s said, New Haven is not a “sketchy” city that you want to stay away from. Much to even my own surprise, New Haven has a lot to offer, but this post will be centred on food.
A favourite of many are the food carts that are spread out throughout the city. The Cheese Truck is definitely one of the most famous, with its absolutely delicious grilled cheese sandwich (their signature mustard is highly advisable). Other offer freshly popped kettle corn, tacos, hot dogs and even some Indian street food.
But New Haven is not just about the food carts. It’s big foodie moment of glory comes from the pizza made at Sally’s and Pepe’s – reputed to have the best pizza in the country. Other options include Thai, Japanese, Indian, American (chicken wings in buffalo sauce, anyone?) and Mediterranean.
My personal favourite food-related part of New Haven is the quaint coffee shops conveniently placed around Yale. Willoughby’s, Blue State, Starbucks, Atticus, Book Trader, if you enjoy curling up with a book or eating some organic food while enjoying the great company of your fellow YMUN delegates, these are the places for you.
Regardless of what your preference is, New Haven is a great place to explore sime gustatory delights!
