here are a few:
|the 'spicy redneck' from crif dogs, williamsburg|
you're looking at a steamed dog, fluffy bun, chili and some creamy slaw that just wouldn't quit...requiring a minimum of four napkins at the ready before consuming.
|falafel sandwich, spicy, with everything from oasis, williamsburg|
|the classic #1, spicy at banh mi zon, lower east side|
i don't care how 'last year' these crackery-crisp-bunned bits of vietnamese sandwich goodness are. i will never tire of them. never.
|my one venture with food-trucking at waffles and dinges, williamsburg|
|the commodore's fried chicken, williamsburg|
again, no website needed. but here's what the times had to say about this place: The Times. i swear that chicken was fried in bacon fat.....
|chicken feather found in one of our thighs. we called it 'macaroni'.|
still hungry? then head on over with me to carnegie deli on 7th ave between 55th and 54th for a 4" pile of tender tasty hot pastrami on rye. and don't forget to slather on some of their famous mustard. served with two different kinds of pickles (not shown) and two of these napkins:

and now for a little pallet cleansing:
|giant pomegranate from the vorberts' in w'burg|
|post-CSA pick-up, monday night supper @ the vorberts'|
chef marcy can cook. she whipped up this belly-warming dish while maintaining dual conversations with two very talkative onlookers. pasta, brussel sprout leaves, kale, red pepper, onion, garlic, oregano, cannellini, chicken broth, parm reg, toasted breadcrumbs and a whole lot of love. hope to share the recipe with you all soon!
