Soooooo... best cong you ban mian, da bing, and/or jidan bing in NYC?
@BostonAdam - ha! No argument here. My father likes to mix it up sometimes though.
@anaya - if you're in NYC, I know Murray's carries them.
Any reason not to use PB2?
Something new! I get the task of my mom's birthday cake each year, and keep trying to do something different. This year's was banana pudding cake.
I'm a sucker for a chocolate covered pretzel. Preferably dark chocolate. With sprinkles.
Went today... had the pork/cilantro and the pan-friend lamb/green squash. Both memorably excellent. Then headed to original location, where they're now offering a "make your own" dumpling, which involves selecting 3-4 ingredients from a list of about 18. So fun, so good.
My dad's ground beef/chili!
Rack of lamb.
Surprised at the lack of love for Van Leeuwen. Blue Marble, too.
Nothing like homemade bread.
...really Serious Eats? REALLY? I'm embarrassed FOR you.
Have noticed Domino's both seem to be a lot lighter than they used to be... the dark looks like the light used to. Anyone else see that?
Meatball Shop. Couldn't possibly have been more underwhelmed.
I could go for some killer Hawaiian!
With that budget wiggle room, toss in $1 for the hot mini cakes on Grand if the cart's out!
Can you add this to the City Bakery tag? I was trying to remember it and it took some hunting. That would help in case I forget again!
I went for my first Cronut on Wednesday... got there around 7:20. There were about 12 people ahead of me in line. Still plenty of cronuts left after everyone who had been waiting when the door open was served.
Bacon and Egg Mazemen from Yuji Ramen at Smorgasburg.
If you're at Katz's, head across the street for some gelato as well!
Ippudo! Though the bacon & egg from Yuji is one of the world's greatest things.
The Arepa Lady. As much as I love things like Wafels and Dinges, Big Gay Ice Cream, Van Leeuwen, etc... the Arepa Lady is simply a cut above. There is no one else who offers an arepa like she does, and that first bite is transcendental.
I'm a big fan of VT-based SlantShack (http://www.slantshackjerky.com/)... lots of locations: http://www.slantshackjerky.com/locations
King County's great, but harder to find... http://www.kingscountyjerky.com/pages/locations
Hush puppies. There is a serious lack of hush puppies in the area.
