Sweet Chick's John Seymour's Favorite Williamsburg Eats

Whole wheat everything bagel? Blech. Sorry. Can't get behind that. Give me my bleached white flour covered in everything seasoning fresh and hot with no toasting necessary and a 1/3 inch thick swipe of plain cream cheese anytime.

East Village's North River Does Brisket Burgers and Lamb Hash for Brunch

My point exactly, Tipsykit. Unless, that is the best rendition of fake pork belly I have ever seen, it is just dumb. Might as well give me all my butter and fat or none of it.

In the Halls of Chinatown's Faux Meat Marketplace

I did a Vegan Taste of Chinatown video for Our Hen House, an animal rights non-profit. Covers May Wah and a bunch of other places. Check it out. :)

An Ode to Fedora, Ziggy Piggy, and Restaurant Off-Hours

I enjoyed reading this a bunch. I don't go to Fedora but the feeling is reminiscent of any place you may hang your hat and occasionally your heart. Thanks for making me feel a little better for always staying out too late for "just one more." :)

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat LaFrieda Burgers

Cape Cod. Burgers on the grill. Overlooking the ocean. We never did frozen patties. Always fresh ground. My tastes have changed over the years but I've always been a burger man. Never hot dogs.

Open Thread: Where Do You Eat in the West 30s?

AM and Al's Deli, 29th and 8th, Get the rooster. Fried chicken, bacon, lettuce tomato and onion. Comes with a soda. If I remember right, it was $6.50. That was maybe a year and a half ago. Totally splittable and if you carry a flask, then a can of seltzer and you have a cocktail too.

Where to Buy a Bone-In Pork Butt

I know I am late on this but I live on the east edge of Williamsburg and there is a grocery store across on Kingsland that sells this and many other of the fattier cuts of meat, long a staple of Latin communities. It is a Bravo Supermarket and I bought a 8.5 lb. bone in Pork Shoulder with skin still on it for 99 cents a lb. I know it's not a homespun butcher shop but it was cheap and the pork was still good. I would imagine you can find similar prices and goods in any grocery store in any ethnic neighborhood in the city. Most likely Latin.

Roast Pork with crispy skin over white rice and covered in extra saucy black beans. Oh, and if they want to throw in a few plantains, I'll never complain.

A Sandwich A Day: Banh Mi Vit Quay (Roast Duck) at Hing Won

Roast Pig over rice with Ginger Scallion sauce. 7 Dollars. Once every two weeks for the past 5 years. Seriously...Love that place. Cracklin part so crispy...pork so fatty. You get larger portions and better Bok Choy in the evening. I've tried the Banh Mi but it's just not good enough for me to stray from my dish. I would eat it every day but it would kill me.

AHT Giveaway: Tickets to Rub BBQ's Burger Bash, May 20

Burger topped with some of their delicious pork bbq. Maybe pork belly with a spicy ginger scallion mayo.

Nothing fancy. Go to my butcher and get a pound and a half of ground beef 2/3rd's chuck and 1/3 briscuit. Sometimes short rib but I try not to burden too much. 1/3 pound large and thin patties lightly handled and with a little salt and pepper. Fresh baked bread from the Italian bakery. Some sort of kaiseresque roll. Crunchy outside and pillowy inside. High heat skillet....seared on both sides. Then low heat to med. rare. Lettuce, onion, tomato(in the summer) and spicy brown mustard. Mmmmm.... Oh and of course melty American or Swiss.
