I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

I really felt like I stumbled upon the next great food find when I saw a modest special on the menu at Takashi. I’ve heard of ramen bowls and ramen burgers but this was the first ramen quesadilla I had seen. And it was great – also a riff on a Japanese okonomiyaki pancake, it was comprised of crisp ramen noodles packed with chewy beef tendon, bold shiso leaf, and aged manchego cheese. And instead of guacamole and salsa, it was topped with the usual okonomayaki garnishes: bonito flakes, Japanese mayo, and seaweed.

CHEZ SARDINE, 183 West 10th Street (between West 4th Street and Seventh Avenue South), West Village

Nose-to-tail dining is the practice of serving all parts of the animal. There’s no waste and some of the more delicious pieces are actually the ones that usually get thrown away. Things like crispy skin or fried pig tails. They sound strange and perhaps scary to your typical American, but serving these dishes is a good way to practice responsible carnivorism.

Chez Sardine is operating on a different level. They’re doing head-to-head eating. You can really get up close and personal with your dinner through their popular miso maple salmon head.
