Maniacally food-obsessed New Yorker who lives to explore, experiment, and eat.
Can't agree more about the Pkhali Trio! Eggplant was great but the other two balls tasted "too healthy." Not sure why the waiter recommended it. Khachapuri was amazing though.
I like the stand on the corner of Grand & Chrystie and also the one on Grand & Forsyth. Both on the North side.
Had a cheese tortilla in Mexico and I loved it! Must try the fricco-dilla! And I hate it also when plates aren't paced out well. It gets chaotic and the food gets cold. Not good.
I agree, I like the boiled dumplings at Prosperity better, specifically the veg and pork dumplings. Will try the noodles!
Oh, I love these! They have them at Iggy's Pizzeria on 1st in the East Village.
I've been told by the hostess at Joe's that Joe's Ginger is related. On busy days, they even hand out Joe's Ginger business cards and direct people there.
I've been waiting since last week for this! Yes!
Spicy margaritas. Note the plural.
One night I was passing by the cart and there were 2 guys in front of me. One guy wanted to stop at the truck, but his friend didn't want to. At the end the friend convinced him to go to Chipotle instead. Hilarious!
I agree, So Kong Dong in Pal Park is better, food & service-wise. If you like the Fort Lee one, you should check out the Pal Park one. They opened up a BCD in NJ too, but I still prefer So Kong Dong.
What about an egg pizza? It'll be good if it's during brunch.
In college I use to eat one easily & then follow-up with a hot dog from Mike's Papaya. Miss my college metabolism...
Oh yes, love the zenzai at Ushi. Haven't been in a while, thanks for reminding me!
Leftovers = kimchi jigae or kimchi jun (kimchi pancakes)!
I'm a fan of the parfait as well. Love how generous they are with the butterscotch.
Glad to see Barrio Chino's margarita on the list. It's completely killer.
Agree with @jkaww, Bayside is not Flushing. Sorry Chris.
Went to Mad for Chicken on 32nd a few weeks ago and noticed they changed their name to Mono+Mono. Rebranding I guess. As usual, outside of the chicken and ddukboki everything else was bad. It's best not stray from the Korean items at Korean restaurants.
If you're looking for sandwiches of the Boar's Head variety, check out Cherry Valley Deli in Whitestone (close to Flushing) - http://www.cherryvalleydeli.net. They have a huge selection - 48 sandwich combos and also makes a prosciutto hero on request.
In the past I've used a George Foreman with a salt shaker to keep the grill open. Waffle irons work too.
Who would have thought you could get good dumplings at a place called Canteen 82? Interesting.
Such a broad area. To keep it simple, I would say Pad Kee Mao.
Best kept secret?
I'm going to Commerce just for the bread basket! Love this post. And btw, Rayuela also has good cheese bread.
