Well I’ve got a job in NYC, in Tribeca to be exact. So I’m back to eating regularly in places worth writing about. Today’s post is kind of a special one since I did not have to pay for anything except my transportation (subway!) to get there. I entered a MidtownLunch.com contest and got invited to go to the preview opening of a crazy new Social-Media/Burger Joint called 4Food (with donut-shaped, stuffed burgers). It is pretty innovative, so I’ve got lot’s to write about (plus photos!).
What makes the perfect hangover food? I’d say a big portion, a little bit of spice, a lot’a bit of grease. I suppose that’s why I find myself going to Bui’s so much on weekend mornings. But no, I do not get the famed “Hangover Special”. Instead I order something that can only be gotten at Bui’s. “Pepperoni, Egg, and Cheese with Onions, Salt, Pepper, and Bui’s Sauce (Sriracha Mayo) on a Long Roll”. I literally dream about this sandwich… it is so filling and delicious. Did I mention it’s $3!
I wandered over to Bui’s on this sleepy Sunday morning at just after noon. As usual there is a crowd of generally hungover looking guys in groups of 2 or 3 or 4 waiting for their salvation. Bui’s is a Sunday morning hub where you are bound to see someone you know who is there for the same reason as you, I know I did. After a bit more than 5 minutes my order was ready (somehow before my friend’s order even though he had ordered before me).
Lyn’s is one of my favorite carts, for a number of reasons including the diversity of the items they make, the quality of the items, the portion, the price and more. I was ready for some breakfast at around 11:00 so I decided to make a stop at Lyn’s. Most carts only make eggs as omelette’s, but Lyn’s will cook the eggs however you’d like so I placed my order of “Bacon, Egg, and Cheese on a Short Roll with Sunny-Side Eggs, Not-Well-Done, with Salt, Pepper, and a little bit of Hot Sauce (Sriracha)”. Yeah, a mouthful, but worth it. Continue reading →
Had a Purple Joe (Eggplant & Egg Sandwich) at Pita Joe for dinner. It was delicious but I was a little surprised by the price. $6.88 for a pita sandwich is definitely on the high end. I guess it wouldn’t have been so expensive if I had noticed that they were offering a 20% off student discount (which I didn’t know about ’til I was finished). The tahini and hot sauce shined though! I think I’d return here to try other dishes.
