Welcome to What’s Chomping Podcast by TEAMCHOMP! Each week 3 team members will present new topics, new debates and new laughs, as we explore the world of food and culture. Whether it’s a new food craze on the come up, a food hype falling flat, or a hidden gem restaurant that is tucked away, we will dive head first and see what’s really chomping!
‘Bite Me, NYC’ is what is printed across the front of the holographic pastry box from Supermoon Bakehouse in New York. Saying that the box is ‘holographic’ might be an understatement — it is glossy and iridescent, but more importantly, when the afternoon Lower East Side sunlight hits it at the right angle the box radiates of every property that constitutes something as ‘Instagram bait.’ The highly photo-worthy design of the to-go pastry box is no coincidence.

Rooster’s Ice Cream Bar is one of those spots. Their homemade ice cream has created quite a buzz and has quickly become a word-of-mouth destination for sweet treats.
