Where: ChickaLious Dessert Bar (203 East 10th St.)

Entering ChickaLicious Dessert Bar, I found a line of anxious customers. The small establishment was crowded and smelled of sweet breads and sugar, making me salivate. As the line shortened, I saw it in the display case on top of the counter. There was only one left and it was calling to me. With two people ahead of me, I grew apprehensive. However, my grin turned into a fat bastard smile as I was handed the last banana cupcake. WIN!

When the cupcake hit my lips, I chewed twice and then couldn't help but stop for two seconds to savor the moment. The cream cheese frosting paired perfectly with the light and fluffy banana cake. Hands down, this is the best banana cupcake in New York. Get there early before they run out, or you'll walk away with only regret.
