Our Daily Bread

Friday, February 29, 2008

There are tons of bread stands in the Union Square Farmer’s Market but Lon and I only buy from one, Our Daily Bread. The sign is small but look for these friendly faces. This couple started out as loyal customers and now they’ve run this stand for 5 years.
Their products are all natural and […]

Way Fong Dumplings

Friday, February 29, 2008

I mentioned in my post on Wei-Chuan Mini Buns, that frozen dumplings are a staple in our freezer. It’s just perfect back-up food. We always like to try new ones, but my long time favorite brand for frozen dumplings has been Way Fong. Their dumplings have what I consider, the right thickness of dough. It’s […]

Sushi Yasuda

Thursday, February 28, 2008

Sushi Yasuda Sushi Yasuda is the best sushi experience I have ever had for so many reasons. Every piece of sushi, every piece of sashimi, the wasabi, Chef Tom, the tea, the atmosphere, everything. After this first visit, I am now forever spoiled and may never be able to eat sushi anywhere else again.I have […]

Fay Da Bakery

Thursday, February 28, 2008

Fay Da Bakery, a popular Chinese Bakery with locations in Flushing and Chinatown, has now opened it’s doors in Forest Hills Fay Da Bakery. This makes me extremely happy because I have been saying for years that these Chinese bakeries should branch out to different markets. As I suspected, this location was extremely packed with […]

Crazy Sandwich

Thursday, February 28, 2008

In a cab today, I caught an episode of ABC’s “Neighborhood Eats” — a show I’ve seen once before, also in a cab. They talked about Watchung Delicatessen, located in New Jersey Watchung Delicatessen, that makes an awesome sandwich. If you read the subway saga (pt1, pt2) then you already know I love […]

Moon House

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Moon House Moon House is next door to New Yeah Shanghai so I’ve thought of going so many times. They’re both Shanghainese restaurants and both seem to draw crowds. I was excited that I would finally try Moon House today, expecting that it would be close competition for New Yeah and I would be forever […]

Cabana Nuevo Latina

I was in the neighborhood I grew up in and it was time for lunch. We decided on Cabana Nuevo Latina Cabana Nuevo Latina, a place I had fond memories of from over 10 years ago. I remember this being the first place my father liked, outside of Chinese food. He liked that the Paella […]

Blueberry Lemon Crumbles

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

These Blueberry Lemon Crumbles, from the December 2005 issue of Gourmet, are like really mini blueberry crumb pies. It is one of my favorite recipes EVER and I love giving them out because they look so impressive and taste great! Friends and family always ask me to make it for them again.

Rohm

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

I stumbled across Rohm Rohm while surfing the net for new places we could order from. The reviews on Menu Pages sounded highly positive but my verdict is that Rohm has potential but does have a lot to work on before getting 5 stars from me. Like the rest of NYC Thai places, I don’t […]
