Bao Noodles

Bao Noodles

CT & I have been back for from our Panama trip for a little while now and already have a bunch of NYC based posts for you. Rather than let them get “stale,” we are gonna have a couple bonus posts at 12:15. Enjoy! A couple Fridays ago, CT and I didn’t have any special plans so we decided to go out in the neighborhood. I had a voucher for the NY Comedy Club that I purchased from Travelzoo back in March(shortly after their launch party) that was just burning a hole in my pocket. Fortunately the voucher was good [...]

Thai Son

Thai Son

One recent afternoon, I went to meet up with James of The Eaten Path and another friend for some barbecue, but due to unforeseen circumstances (they were closed to clean the smoker), we wound up wandering Jackson Heights before we decided on pho.  We walked into Thai Son, which wasn’t crowded… which is my friend TC’s favorite place for pho.  We often argue with each other over whose pho place is better, mine – Pho Bang – or his, Thai Son.  The menu was pretty straightforward, so I ordered the dish that most closely approximated what I order at Pho Bang [...]

Brewers PicNyc

Brewers PicNyc

Last month, Thrillist announced the first food festival of the season on Governors Island would be the Brewers PicNyc over Memorial Day weekend. They also offered a deal for VIP tickets for $55 instead of $85, which included one hour early admission plus all you can eat and drink(beer too). CT and I enjoyed Meatopia and Parked last year(although we ended up in the minority that felt that way), so we were both keen on returning for another festival. Since we are old hands, we know how best to navigate these events. Rule #1 Arrive EARLY! On the way to [...]

Tuesdays with TT: Baorrito

Tuesdays with TT: Baorrito

The day after Thanksgiving is the ultimate lazy day. Mostly due to the fact of the extreme eating and drinking the day before. CT and I decided to go to the movies since that doesn’t require much movement. We ended up seeing Due Date, which was pretty good. Afterwards, we wanted to get something to eat with one stipulation, NO TURKEY! Therefore this was a great opportunity to try Baoritto. The Mexican/Asian reboot of the Baoguette in Gramercy. When Michael “Bao” Huynh isn’t opening a new restaurant (approx. every 2 weeks), he’s changing a space he already owns. While he [...]

Turtle Tower & Saigon Sandwich

Turtle Tower & Saigon Sandwich

I recently flew to San Francisco – one of my very favorite domestic cities - to attend the 2nd Annual Foodbuzz Fest (here’s last year’s write-up).  Follow along for the next two weeks as I recap my weekend trip!  Directly after the farewell brunch, I headed back to our hotel and settled out the bill, packed up again all neatly since I had to check my luggage – um, a big scary knife made an appearance in the swag bag – and then walked over to Turtle Tower.  Since the first time I went to Turtle Tower a year ago, I [...]
