Our interest was piqued when we read the last line of Jada Yuan’s piece about Lily Allen’s two weeks in New York. “‘Don’t worry,’ she says, cheerily chomping on chicken satay at Cafe Gitane, a few hours before double-fisting pizza slices at Joe’s. ‘I’m still eating like a fucking pig.’” Vulture, our entertainment blog, has some choice outtakes from the interview, but none of them clear up our curiosity about Lily’s New York diet — here, then, are some food-related kernels that didn’t make it into the magazine piece.
On street-cart shaved ice: “Is it unhealthy? It looks greasy [American translation: ‘dirty’] All right. I’ll get one.”
On other summer treats she loves: “I like frozen berries with white-chocolate sauce on top. My mom makes it. It’s the best. Oooh, and frozen orange juice.”
On restaurants she loves: “I love going to the Spotted Pig. The gnudi. Mmmm. Oh, my God. So good. I like the salad and sushi at Blue Ribbon. I ate there four times in six days. I love Tea and Sympathy, the Sunday roasts.”
On cooking: “I do cook. We get our food from FreshDirect. I’m pretty good at roast dinners and spaghetti Bolognese.”
