Fast and Steady Eddie

…The crust, from dough they make in-house themselves—was properly thin and firm, if not fully crispy, though it holds a great fold. I personally might have preferred a bit more flavor to the crust, but any lack of it was more than made up for in the rich, tangy, aromatic, well-seasoned and nicely balanced sauce. The cheese, as well, had a nice, mellow taste, and was pliable to the teeth without sliding off the slice. A quick survey of the folks who enjoyed my pizza charity found that they all were very impressed and pleased with the pizza, one even claiming “Awesome!”…. [Full post]




Hester Street Flair

Hester Street Flair

… As I fought back figurative fears, the others welcomed the invitation to frenzy feed, making quick work of all macaroons, popcorn, and chocolate-covered bacon. I was able to save a slice for myself, and decided I would only give up one bite of my Porchetta sandwich, since I knew it would be the first thing I’d want to eat once I got hungry again….

Puttin’ On The Schnitzel

Puttin’ On The Schnitzel

…The textures were all close to spot on; the schnitzel was thin and crisp on the outside,with the veal on the inside being tender enough to easily cut and bite through. The shreds of cabbage were cool and crisp, and the nuggets of potato in salad were comfortably malleable between my tongue and the roof of my mouth…. [Full post]




Meatballs a La Carte

Meatballs a La Carte

…The sauce is rich and deep with flavor without feeling heavy or overcoating the inside of your mouth. The cheese was gooey and non-obstructive,as it sometimes can be an other meatball heros, relying more on its casual yet almost rustic flavor than on the oversold visual of cartoonish “stringiness”. The ground veal meatballs are nicely firm but not dense, and juicy enough to fall apart easily as each bite finishes as one singularly familiar and satisfying food idea… [Full post….]




Wingin’ In The Rain

Wingin’ In The Rain

…But the flavors were all present and spot on, soy sauce-based spicy and sweetness in the still juicy and sizable wings (take note, KyoChon!), and the delicious pork filling, heady with tang and aromatics, were supported nicely by the simple, chewy dough and a dollop of their iteration of a hoisin sauce….

Keep On Truckin’

Keep On Truckin’

…I grabbed a maple-bacon wafel for myself, and another with a side of their famous spekuloos for my fellow staff members who were already at the restaurant for brunch service, while making suggestions to some of the trucks first-time customers recommendations on what combinations of wafels and dinges (toppings) they should try….

Wafeler’s Travels

..I took a quick look at the menu to refamiliarize myself with all of the yummy options, rendered immediately moot once I saw the BACON SYRUP WAFEL special scribbled on the chalkboard on the side of the truck! I ordered one while perusing the truck for the rest of its wares and watching the wafel-makers create other customer’s dishes… [cont.]




I’m Hungry and Anita Dumpling…!, Pt. 2

SO MANY OF YOU HAVE asked why do I go on all of these food excursions by myself. The answer is, because I’m anti-social. No, I’m just joking. I usually go during the day when many of you are busy at your offices slaving away for “The Man” (or Woman)”. I always encourage my friends to join me when they can, and this evening, one of them did…. [cont.]

I’m Hungry and Anita Dumpling…!, Pt. 1

…These were so good they were gone before I could even remember to take some “half-eaten” shots of the dumplings. Neither Danny nor I could choose a favorite, although we enjoyed them both. The dumpling “skin” was thin enough to be translucent, as you can see in the pictures, so the featured flavors are that of the stuffing—layered, textured, nicely seasoned, and easily discernible in their many fresh ingredients—and not the dough….
