***EARTHCANDY is in New York City this week and spotlighting some of the FOOD, FASHION & FLYNESS that the Big Apple has to offer.***
I alternate my blog features among the different aspects of my EARTHCANDY brand, which are food, fashion and flyness. Up next is the FOOD component, however, blogging about the where-to’s of NYC vegan and vegan-friendly dining seemed too obvious. Being here always makes me feel at ease when it comes to restaurant options. From dining at Manhatan’s GOBO, RED BAMBOO and QUINTESSENCE, Chinatown’s VEGETARIAN DIM SUM HOUSE, to Brooklyn’s BORN THAI, RAWSTAR and MANGO restaurants, I know I’ll be eating good!

While there, I was engulfed with an eye-full of enlightening books, scupltured art, body products (internal and external) and the beautiful people in attendance, SupaNova and his cousin Entrified were two of the many faces there. It was truly an honor.
Since then, everytime SupaNova and I see each other, to my amusement he ALWAYS asks, “Hey sis, where’s that food?!?”
As I gathered my questions for SupaNova for my blog, I think, “Wait a minute; SupaNova is someone I’d much rather listen to based on the passion he exudes and the wisdom he shares. I decided to bum-rush him and record our talk. Besides, he claims to be ‘Fred Flintstone’ when it comes to typing!
Here’s what we got…
