Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
This summer I spent a few weeks travelling around Eastern Europe and I learned that the king of food in most countries is beer and sausage. Here in New York, I’ve only experienced a bit of the true Eastern European food at places in Astoria many years ago. It’s a cuisine that is prevalent here, but it’s just a little more difficult to find.
And while Kafana is right in the heart of Alphabet City, few people know it outside of Serbians and Bosnians looking for a taste of home. For everyone else, it’s a hidden gem worth uncovering. (more…)
My search for the best ice cream in New York continues ….
I feel pretty bad about this review. I don’t loke criticizing small businesses that are doing their best to invest in and embrace the community.
I like Mikey Likes It. The owner was on premises and thanked me for my support. I also like the concept – the ice cream and flavors are influenced by both Southern comfort food and pop culture. There is a flavor named Foxy Brown and another composed of Pecan Pie ice cream and praline pecans. The only thing I don’t like about the place is the ice cream. (more…)
Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Locals Know, I explore a new city through the tours of Urban Adventures.
Last year, I helped design a tour for Urban Adventures that has been a huge success (if I do say so myself). It involves cocktails, so how could it be bad?
I lead the tour pretty regularly but we have about three other guides that also do a great job with it. So on the latest episode of Locals Know, I experience the New York Craft Cocktail tour from a brand new perspective thanks to Josh. Watch the video below to get a sense of the tour and watch us discover hidden bars, new speakeasies, and drink a whole lots of well-crafted cocktails.
