Fatty Crab

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Last week I was in New York City. I ate twice at Fatty Crab. It’s been around for a while, but remains one of my standby favorites. The food is full of flavors I only get to taste when I eat there. As I joked to my friends I met there, the wait staff recognizes me and I don’t even live in the city. Not sure if that’s a bad sign or a good sign! Below a picture of some amazing noodles that were wide, served kind of rolled up with squid, shrimp, and some kind of amazing cured pork. Yum. I’ll get this blogging thing down soon, unfortunately I did not write down the name of this dish…

Perfect Yum

The Breslin

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

Thanks to my cousin Tim, we ended up at The Breslin last week for what turned into a pre-Thanksgiving gorgefest. It is a new place in the lobby of the Ace hotel run by the Spotted Pig chefs. The menu is full of pork in many, many forms. There is onion and bone marrow soup. It was an amazing meal. We started with the terrine platter which from left to right was, head cheese, rabbit, pork, and guinea.(Sorry for the horrible pictures, I had only my fancy phone.)

Tim and I got the belly and mashed potatoes for 2. It could serve 4 and was the biggest slab of pork belly I’ve ever seen. This was one of those dishes that proved sometimes food is the best thing on the planet to consume.

Koreatown

Monday, November 30th, 2009

On Monday we sought out a restaurant in Koreatown here in New York. The food was not awesome, the decorations were. There was also traditional Christmas music in the background but sung in Korean and with Korean pop-music effects. It was an experience.
