I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2017…

I have yet to do my official search for the city’s best cannoli (one day – just you wait) but I think I may have already found them. And they are not from any of the bakeries that make all the other food publication’s lists. These traditional cannoli come from a newer vendor in the Arthur Avenue Retail Market which might be the most authentic Sicilian stop in the entire neighborhood. Italians sip espresso from the counter, every pastry is served with a cold glass of water, and the cannoli are comprised of a browned fried shell and the most luxurious sheep’s milk ricotta filling you can imagine. Price: $1.75/$3.50

My search for the best falafel in New York continues….

BEDOUIN TENT, 405 Atlantic Avenue (between Bond Street and Nevins Street), Downtown Brooklyn

A Bedouin tent is a convertible structure usually made of goat or camel hair that allows nomadic people to stay safely and comfortably in the desert. It’s also the name of a restaurant in the cozy neighborhood of Boerum Hill. As far as I know, Boerum Hill is nothing like the Arabian desert.

Where's the Camel Hair?

But in the back of this seemingly small, crowded Jordanian-owned restaurant, lies a hidden dining area with colors and images that could convince you that you were in fact dining inside a Bedouin tent. If it weren’t for the sirens and traffic outside. And while the service was lackluster and lazy, the excellent Middle Eastern food is made to be savored.
