My name is Kristen Ruhlin, I’m a new mama to a boy named Bastian.

This blog is all about hitting the top restaurants  with BIG strollers, tiny babies in big cities. So check in to see where Bastian and I have ventured and if we were asked to leave once they saw our HUGE SUV of a stroller roll in(we have a Bugaboo Cameleon, it’s big). We’re eaten’ food, burpin babies and taken names.

RANKINGRiding Dirty (1)- the lowest of the low;  Strollin (5)- kindly asked us to hit the road; Rollin (10)- these ballers know how to roll.

The Spot:  “Congee Village” 207 Bowery NY 10002 (212)766-2828

  • Baby B Rank:  Rollin- There was a wait when we walked in. Fear sets in. No worries, you got a baby…no wait-y. They rolled us in and sat us at this huge table in the corner. I admit I felt bad taking at 5 top when there were people waiting, but we have a baby and ‘aint nobody got time for that’. So we scarf our food and enjoy the moment we had.
  • Food:  This Chinese food isn’t messing around. It’s won several foodie awards and I had always wanted to try it out bc it looked HUGE and because it looks like a jungle inside. Score. I’m a sucker for theme park decor in places. Ghetto yes, cool no…mama don’t care. It should also be noted these plates are HUGE and meant for family style sharing.
  • Price: $10 and up. Very well priced for the size.
  • Location:  LES, Lower East Side, East Village, Chinatown, Soho, NYC
