More From Soho

So back to Soho. First of all, I don't know what the fuss's all about with Pinkberry. Tried it in Soho and it was mediocre. Does it really need to occupy such a huge space in The Avenues?!

Next to Pinkberry was a really funny and cute place that only sells rice puddings in every imaginable flavor you can think of called Rice to Riches. And it's opposite to Lombardi's Pizza (the best in NYC, see photo below). I've tried the cappuccino flavored rice pudding and it was heavenly but I only had a few bites as the portion was huge and it was heavy.

Rice to Riches had the funniest quotes and slogans all over their small store. My favorite is the one hung on the door shown above.

I passed by New York’s most famous vintage clothing store, Resurrection boutique. The last time I have been there I got some nice evening pieces. This time, I was disappointed, not many interesting pieces. The only thing that was appealing was the vintage Maxi Chanel bag in black and some Chanel accessories. Better luck next time maybe...

Nikki Laura boutique in SoHo is one of the coziest stores in NYC. The interior is all white, pink, and inviting. The sales assistants are beyond helpful and friendly. The boutique has a nice selection of cool local designers and a few eccentric ones. There are many boutiques worth visiting in Soho which I didn't have the time to take photos of unfortunately. So if you're planning to go there, you'd probably need around 4-5 hours of boutique hopping.

The movie Hitch had a scene in rice to riches ... I've had rice pudding before but heard this one is special. Do you think it would be a hit in Kuwait?
