The Korean beef sandwich is killer
Ruled by the desire to never eat a bad meal, but will try anything once. Love restaurants, cooking, wine & scotch. Brooklyn based marketing consultant.
Amazing cold brew. Best coffee we had in Bali by far.
Cocktails took 20+ min, and the waitress gave each of us the wrong cocktail - which took away from the fact they were pretty tasty.
Reserve the Colorado villa for fantastic views. Eat at Espadin restaurant and snorkel or learn to surf at the playa just below the hotel. Highly recommended hotel!
They serve Stumptown coffee. 'Nuff said. They sell beans as well.
Avoid the shrimp cocktail. Bland, overcooked and pricey. Paired nicely with the snooty cocktail waitress.
Excellent sandwiches, including the #4 (smoked turkey, onions, manchego, harissa mayo & peppadews) & the BLT special. Not cheap, but very tasty.
Stick with the raw bar. Our fluke special was both ovecooked and bland. Nice room and service, but not a great meal
Recently renovated by a moron. Hotel bathrooms are the worst - no ventilation, and a half shower door that guarantees a wet floor. The TVs are 1998's best technology. Fail.
Possibly the best Thai in Williamsburg. Tod mun, Som tom salad and noodle dishes are all tasty. Ask for it Thai style if you want it spicy
The best selection of trustworthy fish & shellfish (oysters galore and they will shuck to eat on-site) in NYC. Excellent arctic char, mackerel, striped bass, rock shrimp, sardines & whole trout, etc.
Tasso ham & Andouille sausage are made in-house (great for jambalaya). Their bacon is smoky & delicious too. Best butcher in Manhattan for locally sourced humanely raised meat. I'm a fan.
Excellent Sichuan - smoked tofu w/ celery, dan dan noodles, cold cucumbers, cumin lamb, tea smoked duck, pork belly with leeks and fish specials are all tasty.
The extremely well-informed and helpful staff has never steered us wrong. Uva's selection of wines has a distinct personality with some very interesting finds at pretty accessible prices
Lang-Pi cold noodles (ask for it spicy) and a cumin lamb "burger" are the best $7 you can spend in the east village on food. Tasty beyond belief.
It really is that good. The coffee is roasted on-site and sold in 1/2 pound bags for $8.50 - $11. Just follow your nose on a roasting day and you will find it.
Roast pork buns are where it's at... especially at 80 cents a pop. I make it a foursome. One for now, one for later and two for the fridge.
Aisle 1 has a great selection of Sichuan hot sauces, thai curry pastes and Malaysian ingredients. Good place for fresh noodles as well.
Deep fried pork ribs with garlic, cumin lamb (#101), cheng du shrimp, smoked tofu & celery and the dan dan are all excellent, among other delicious dishes
Duck laab, squid ink sesame oil soup, or bay scallops w crisp shallots & toasted coconut. You can't go wrong w any fish or duck entree. Ask for it spicy & try to snag a seat by the open kitchen
