What's Not OK To Eat For Breakfast?

The best breakfast I ever had was made by my bro's missus, it was eggs benedict with bagels instead of english muffins, streaky bacon instead of canadian, homemade hollandaise and a side of salad with all the trimmings with fresh cut strawberries and a balsamic reduction, I've never had a better breakfast since.

Mexican Eats: Guelaguetza

Logging in after a year hiatus in London to say this is my favourite takeaway restaurant in New York City. If you didn't have the chorizo tacos or the sopes carnitas you haven't eaten here.

AHT Giveaway: Fatty Melt Dinner for Two at Rub BBQ in NYC

My girlfriend loves Irish pub burgers (corner bistro/JG Melon) I would love to see how to make her the perfect one.

Snapshots from Amsterdam: The Best Street Food

Also the bitterballen in Vandaag in the East Village pretty much blows the stuff I had in Dutch bars away (although that stuff was frozen admittedly and Vandaag make theirs fresh). I might have to take a trip to Vandaag now, damnit!

Snapshots from Amsterdam: The Best Street Food

As someone who lived in Rotterdam I can tell you that broodje haring (herring bread) is kind of a seasonal thing (June I think) because herring come in fresh at a certain time of year.

Not sure if you got a bad one but the pickled herring and onion rolls that I ate in Holland over the year I was there were fantastic.
You missed out on filet american (steak tartare on a bread roll) I used to love that stuff!

Was it Kenji? That sounds horrendous by the way.

The Corner Slice: The Best Slice on Eighth Between 30th and 31st

Ah my hood. Pizza Suprema is definitely the best by a mile. I love how they usually have a pie hot out of the oven if you go for the plain slice.
Careful though, eating it on the street I've probably burned the roof of my mouth tens of times.

The thing about Amadeus is that they're open until some crazy hour so if you've got the munchies and you need a quick delivery at 4am they're the only option and they deliver by the slice. To be honest their buffalo wings are better than their pizza! Their burgers however are horrendous cafeteria pucks.

Where to find classic British food in London

Get a Pie Minister Pie on the southbank. Extra points if you get it with somerset cider. Oh Glastonbury you cannot come fast enough!!!

What Next Iron Chef Nate Appleman Has Been Doing at Chipotle

best thing in chipotle I think are the salad bowls, still not great for you but their shredded pork and shredded beef rule with a lot of red (hot) salsa.

St. Paddy's Report: Irish Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner in Queens

Don't know why Shepard's Pie in America is made with beef. Surely Shepard would imply lamb, which is the trad Irish way...
It all is making me homesick though.

Irish Potato Candy?

I'm Irish and have no idea what this is.

Best place to buy scallops fresh and in the shell??

I tried Citarella in the village and they didn't have them. Guess I'll check the Chelsea market.

Thanks guys!

mrbmg, no you don't.

Best place to buy scallops fresh and in the shell??

My girlfriend is used to scallops coming in the shell in her home country and particularly likes the yellow part.

We looked everywhere in Chinatown and were unable to locate any fresh scallops, we could only find frozen or fresh out of the shell.

Does anyone know anywhere in the city that sells them in the shell and fresh caught that day?

Thanks!

Best authentic crepe in NYC

So My girlfriend is French and is always looking for an authentic crepe. We tried Bar Breton but their fancy riff on crepes didn't sit will with her, she just wants a goto place cheap like in france for an authentic french style crepe preferably with good chocolate fillings. Any recommendations that put nutella near a crepe will be disqualified and mocked.

Advice?

Do meat slicers adversely affect meat quality?

I was wondering if hand slicing meat like in Katz's is superior to machine slicing because of the friction heat created by a spinning blade. A friend and I disagreed over it. I'm thinking it would adversely affect things like cured meats etc, but what about cooked meats?

Authentic French Baguette

Does anyone know where you can get an Authentic French baguette in NYC? I have been to France many times and whatever way they make their baguettes I have never seen the elasticity of the dough and the crispness of the crust replicated outside of France.
