It’s been a long time since I’ve written a post like this, not really about anything much in particular. I always mean to make them about other things I do, and then they end up being just about food. I hope that’s okay with everyone. First up, I enjoyed this bibimbap at a relatively new Korean place on Clinton Street called Patate Fellow, and I need to go back and try some more dishes.
After I wrote that crazy post about foods I hate, a few people suggested I try Asian pears. Well, I did. Definitely better than regular pears, but I’m still on the fence.
Did you see the Serious Eats post about the sorta-new food court on 32nd Street (aka, Korea Town)? I’ve been there a lot lately. I can’t quite remember what this dish was called with so much tofu and the fried egg on top, but I’m pretty sure it was tasty.
Speaking of Asian food, I had a great lunch at Kin Shop with my friend Jennifer recently. Almost everything we were served was unfamiliar in presentation, so it’s a fun place to eat with adventurous foodie friends.
Il Laboratorio del Gelato moved to huge new digs on Houston Street, with glass windows all around so you can watch them in action in the kitchen. And of course the gelato is still amazing.
I’ve talked about The Meatball Shop before, so you know I’m a fan, but I only just recently tried the ice cream sandwiches. This is how you do dessert.
Udon West isn’t new, but it’s such a great value. You can find me there all the time when I’m craving something really satsifying. Plus, with the counter seating, it’s a perfect place to eat alone.
This will sound crazy, but I think I’d eaten Eggs Benedict just once in my life up until this week. Then I had it two days in a row. Weird, right? This one at Loreley was perfect — what a gooey mess of yum.
