Lebanon bologna?

the best i've done locally is Millport Farm, which operates at a couple of farmer's markets. not my local, and not at the one near my office's new location in tribeca -- they roll into the rockefeller center one the one month a year that operates. if i can hold out a few more weeks, i'll stock up!

growing up in Cleveland in the early '70s, Royal Castle's similarly sized, round, burgers were also sliders. as per local tradition, mustard as well as onions. I miss 'em.

Hyderabadi Biryani and Chat

i'd steer you away from Paradise. it's a fairly large chain and turns out pretty mediocre stuff at the Jackson heights branch. the biryani (both chicken and lamb) was adequate, but everything else I've had there was pretty dreadful.

I've never had sauce on a loose meat sandwich. in fact, that's the thing that differentiates it from other similar sandwiches....adding the sauce above would bring it into sloppy joe territory, in my opinion. the recipe above reads like a (pretty good) sloppy joe. i'd add some dry mustard and omit the yellow, but that's just me.

Chow-worthy takeout before hopping on Acela home

broadway crosses the island diagonally. i thought it was east of fifth at that point already, but 1188 is midway between 5th and 6th. still a little more than i'd walk, if i were starting at 8th and going to 7th, but to each his or her own.

excellent subs, but i think the OP was trying to avoid going across town to pick up a good snack.

in brisket prep, i've had good luck with a machaca, which has great flavor, but no smoke.

in the south, far more so. chitlins, or, if one is being effete, chitterlings, are found in bars pretty regularly.

Let's talk about white bread

we did the same with dough balls, and with velveeta cheese, believe it or not. trout LOVED the velveeta.

Di Fara Pizza HORRIBLE

restaurants close for vacation all the time. hundreds of them at this very moment. all over new york, america, the world. the owner of Kolib in Astoria,a recent vacationer, is not a celebrity. he may be a Marxist. that would not impact my enjoyment of his food ... unless he imitated ol' Karl's grooming and shed beard hairs into my goulash.

The person who is obsessed with celebrity sees it everywhere . The person who cares little about it sees it nowhere. Some political types see Marxists in every corner. Some see black helicopters. It's all good. Life is more amusing that way

1930s Dining Le Palina: Incredible Taste

Yes, shells. And I remember the ricotta filling being quite light, not dense, and very tasty

1930s Dining Le Palina: Incredible Taste

I had all but forgotten about this place. it was terrific many years back when I ate there regularly. a pasta with ricotta, the name of which escapes me, was a favorite.

Slurp Shop at Gotham Market - a Disappointment

lukewarm, in this instance, would definitely be an issue for me as well.

there's this thing called bread. so faddish that some restaurants recently started bringing it to tables before a meal without even being asked. its 15 minutes will be up soon.

Tongue: Authentic Mexican Outer Boroughs

Cemitas are a variety of Mexican sandwich, differentiated from tortas by the inclusion of papalo and the use of a different sort of roll. ubiquitous in "authentic" Mexican places.

Slurp Shop at Gotham Market - a Disappointment

the OP clearly has very high standards, as he or she has also registered disappointment in the 'second rate" sushi at 15 East and the mediocrity of Eleven Madison Park.
looking forward to a couple of the things on Orkin's menu downtown. I tend to be more of a traditionalist, but the whitefish does sound tempting.
