I'm looking for bars in Brooklyn that serves cheap, authentic tacos. Any favorite spots? Thank you!
I want to get into cooking with offal but am having a hard time finding trustworthy grocery stores or butchers to buy.
The chicken hearts I bought from a grocery store in Chinatown (can't remember which but it was close to the Grand BD stop) turned out to be moldy and Fleisher's in Brooklyn doesn't sell chicken hearts (though they have livers).
Can anyone point me in the right direction? I am looking for any kind of hearts and offal in general. I live in Fort Greene so anything in Brooklyn or Manhattan is convenient.
The Lower East Side has no shortage of booze-spongey food open late on the cheap. But some bites are better than others, worth a special trip no matter the hour. From hero sandwiches and corner slices to meatballs and steamed crab legs, here are 15 ways to eat well after after dark on the LES.
Cutting a tattooed figure as a judge on "Chopped" and in the neighborhood restaurants he owns and cooks in (last year's Beauty & Essex and the celebrity-studded Stanton Social), Chris Santos is something of a Lower East Side legend.

Read on for Chris's greatest hits of the LES.

This Seoul-based chain is founded by comedian, MC, and former professional wrestler Kang Ho Dong, which may lead you to believe that Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong is something of a gag. But on my visit that couldn't be further from the case.
Until recently, the only way to enjoy owner Denisse "Lina" Chavez's cooking was to eat your picadata while leaning against the narrow store's shelves. Now she has opened up a full restaurant in the former pint-sized Mexicocina space next door. At first glance, the restaurant reads like an basic taqueria, with a menu that mostly lists antojitos and seating for about ten. But take a second look and you'll see that Carnitas El Atoradero is where you go to order the food you never get at your local taqueria. This is the home-style cooking, way beyond the taco, that New York needs.

Korea Town is one of Manhattan's most exciting food neighborhoods at any time of day, but it really comes alive late at night, when the crowds build and the soju starts flowing.

You'll find fewer taquerias at the North end of Sunset Park, or where ambitious real estate agents call South Slope. Up here there are more funeral halls, delis, and pizzerias than taquerias, but there is El Tenampa, a 4th Avenue grocery doing it all right.

Fish Tales has been supplying Brooklyn's Cobble Hill community with fresh seafood since opening in 1996. The Court Street fixture has followed the neighborhood's growth over the following 17 years—rotating its offerings and boosting its grocery selection—but two concepts remain firmly rooted in the shop's inception: its dedication to high quality fish and superb customer service.
You can most assuredly find brighter and glitzier spots for sushi and Japanese comfort foods in the East Village, especially if you want to spend a lot more money. But Natori has far more character, history and soul than all of them combined.
