New York Food Trucks

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

I just stumbled across this cool page with a map and description of 10 New York Food Trucks. It is not even close to a complete list but still very useful since several trucks are totally forgettable. The one I can’t believe they left out is The Halal TruckThe Halal Truck. It is uber famous […]

Not-Too-Sweet Cupcakes

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

I find most American desserts too sweet so it was such a pleasure to eat these Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes. The creamy middle gives the cupcake just the right hint of decadence; proof that you don’t need to overdue it on sugar to make it a treat.

Baked SesameTofu

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

Lon is not a big fan of tofu but likes the texture of the tofu at City Bakery. He’s not sure, but thinks it might be baked and then seared. I haven’t tried it yet and decided to try baking some tofu to see if Lon likes it. We both really liked the result.
First, make […]

Vietnamese Coffee

Monday, December 10, 2007

When my mom came back from a tour of Asia, she brought me some coffee and a filter from Vietnam. As I was making myself a cup this morning, I thought, everyone should have a Vietnamese coffee filter! It’s perfect for one cup. (Lon doesn’t drink coffee.) It takes up very little space and is […]

Bouley

Sunday, December 9, 2007

Bouley Bouley is one of my favorite restaurants, and also one of Lon’s, but this was our first time there together. Everything about this place is wonderful. They have lovely decor that includes fresh flowers on every table. They use high quality ingredients to make beautifully presented food that is always delicious. The top notch […]

Happy Edible Holidays – Good Gifts for your Foodie

Saturday, December 8, 2007

Lon does not like presents that are not edible. I made the mistake of buying him a sweater once. The Brooks Bothers sweater is still sitting in our bedroom with tags on it. I noticed that his family really just buys him food, for every holiday and birthday. So, what’s a good present for a […]

Go Alex!

Friday, December 7, 2007

My friend Alex (Jando S.) spends hours on Yelp per day. He carefully write reviews for free, for your benefit. After, just over 1,000 reviews, the work paid off. He made it into Time Out New York as a Master Rater.

Awesome BBQ Turkey

Friday, December 7, 2007

We’ve been trying to eat less pork because of Lon’s cholesterol. He doesn’t like tofu that much and I don’t want to eat chicken every day. As you may have read before, I’m not a fan of breast meat so I bought turkey legs. I decided to de-bone them (leave skin on) because I wanted […]

Curried Cauliflower Soup

Thursday, December 6, 2007

Lon doesn’t really like cauliflower so I tried to make a not so cauliflower-like dish. It ended up being a yummy curry soup and Lon liked it. Yay! It tastes creamy without any dairy and has very little fat.
2 cubes chicken bouillon
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 medium onion, sliced
1 small head of cauliflower, cut into florets
8 […]

Lemongrass

Wednesday, December 5, 2007

We ordered dinner from Lemongrass Lemongrass while we were at Kasi & Stephen’s tonight. The food was completely forgettable and not even that cheap for that kind of restaurant. Even with the $8 coupon, I was a bit disappointed. Just don’t bother with this one since there’s tons of restaurants to try.
