Jess and Garrett write Date Night for Serious Eats: New York and the blog We Heart New York. They have an orange cat who loves ice cream and butterscotch pudding.
And thanks, all!
@Kenji: Lots of good Chongqing chicken in Beijing, thankfully, including the cafeteria of the office of the Sichuan government.
@Lorenzo: Our train was shorter due to the lower demand in winter: it only had first- and second-class carriages.
@phillamb168: If you travel independently, it's not all that expensive. A second-class Moscow-Beijing ticket can be had for around $600 in winter, and a first-class ticket for around twice that.
@Grisha: Quark and tvorog are the same thing.
Dnyanesh, we actually put a few slideshows of food in India on SE this year. Here's one on vegetarian street food, one on Rajasthani eats, and one on street sweets.
Sorry for the confusion. The dish is called “manuka and marmite braised baby back ribs,” but “manuka honey” is what goes into the braise.
Gorgeous photos, Andrew!
A Himalayan thali? Looks (and sounds) great!
@samanthaalison: interesting point about the salteña.
The gyoza are under that shell, forming a sort of spine. And yes, the pork betty does come with a fair amount of soy sauce and sake.
@simon: Minced lamb, but it did kind of look like a flattened chicken breast.
Thanks for reading, everyone!
What a great guide this is, Max --- amazing stuff!
Yes, definitely. Between these chips and Martin's Pretzels, our junk food needs are just about covered.
Thanks -- that was exactly what we did when we were in India last year, and it was wonderful!
@KateN: It's a perfect rainy night place. Very cozy.
@parkdope20: The ribeye does sound great. Maybe next time.
Thanks for reading!
Very cool--had no idea. Thanks for posting about this.
Thanks so much, @madamek!
Thanks for reading, everyone -- glad to see so many other Indian street food fans!
@KarmaFreeCooking: Looks like you've had some great trips. Aamras and ice cream sounds fantastic.
@henry.gomes: Where do you recommend in JH? For sweets in the neighborhood we generally go to Rajbhog or Maharajah, but we're always on the hunt for more.
@howard, @hunrgy: they were out of the "sexy balls for him" and "sexy bites for her" when we were there recently, sadly.
@KateN: Thanks so much!
@FromtheFuture: Indeed it is--we were there just a few days ago. The food is as good as ever.
@HW: The gratitude is all ours.
@xbklynh8r: Nope, we didn’t derive any thoughts about her abilities from her appearance. The subject of the verb “belied” is “touch,” so that phrase indicates that her traditional gesture was out of keeping with the casual contemporary style of her clothes. Hope that answers your question, and thanks for reading.
Hmmm . . . according to the DOHMH site, their most recent inspection (November of last year) netted them an A, with 13 points, not a C.
@RobertoRX, Indeed. We're looking forward to a return trip.
It is! Thanks for the help with proofreading, @bookmonger.
