Diminutive eating powerhouse 24/7.
Phnom Penh! Those chicken wings are a must every time I visit the hometown, not to mention the butter beef. I've yet to find a decent substitute on the East Coast :(
The fried chicken at Kingfish Cafe is also outstanding.
Chocolate peanut butter crunch pie.
I admit to being one of those burger halvers. It's probably sacrilege, but I'm a tiny person with tiny hands, so practicalities have to be observed.
OH MY GOD YES.
As a fellow Canadian, I totally feel you, Erin. Heading to TJ's after work! :)
Great article. I really enjoyed their take on the Hand Torn noodles last time I was there. No love for the black garlic chicken wings?
Savoury tong yuan (glutinous rice dumplings) were my extended family's go-to meal whenever we were recovering from a major holiday and needed to use up the leftovers.
Broder! I still yearn for their smoked trout hash even years later. One of the best standouts in PDX.
Brilliant. Robyn's day sounds like it's told through an Adventure Time lens.
Nice garter, Kenji.
Black Swan was a former regular until the service went downhill and the music became deafening. Now it's Allswell and Taro Sushi. The Taro staff know our faces by now, even though we're only in once a month.
If I worked/lived in Midtown East, Little Collins would be THE regular coffee shop for me. The lattes and sandwiches there are amazing.
Wow, honest review. I had high hopes for Skal, but I guess they still have a lot of kinks to work out. The hunt for an east coast Broder PDX continues...
Sadly my last recent trip to Aamanns Copenhagen was very similar to the service you received at Skal, Max. The food was wonderful, but the service left a bitter taste in my mouth.
Tom yum goong.
Oh, I'm sad I missed this show and tell! This robot mug is mine, here.
Great list, awesome recommendations. I think the only one I wasn't so thrilled by was Puddin' -- incredibly rich and tasty, but sooo overpriced.
Ritter Sport! British chocolate! I'm definitely coming here next time I have a Malteser and Aero craving.
I should bring Coffee Crisp and Wunderbars to SEHQ to make up for that experience.
Sea cucumber. It's unfortunately served at a lot of our family banquet dinners.
Dino in Brooklyn, black squid ink linguine in a spicy tomato sauce. I'm not traditionally a fan of squid, in pasta or otherwise, but it really makes my heart sing.
Soft and chewy, warm if possible, slightly crisp at the edge.
Where the hell was this when I stopped in this weekend? Gah. Not that I'm complaining about the other great treats I picked up.
That Bee Sting pizza by Roberta's is truly amazing.
Their margherita pizza is no joke; I ate the entire thing by myself one evening. So gloriously amazing.
This reminded me of the KFC on City Ave in Philly - within an old and gorgeous house, foyer, etc. The inside is not as nice, though.
More love for Van Leeuwen! Their mint chip is amazing, and the Earl Grey is incomparable in the city.
