Tacis Beyti – Turkish in Brooklyn

I work a few doors down from them. they do an amazing liver lunch, which is the fired liver cubes, shepard's salad and turkish rice for 9 bucks. I order that every couple of weeks or so. they also do an amazing plain old gyro for 5 buks.
big fan of the place, although their menu is a little small.

Chinatown fruit report [Old]

lychees normally hit china town may 15- may 20, but i suspect they will be delayed by 2-4 weeks this year as florida (where they are grown) had a really long and cold winter this year.

Have Florida's lychees hit chinatown yet?

kobe:

dont know the answer to your q, but generally, they have at least 2 grades of lychees in china town in june- last year the cheaper ones went for $2-4 a pound and were pretty mediocre. the more expensve ones went for $5-6 a pound and were amazing. those lychees usually came with the stalks still attached to them. i believe those were from florida.

why do you want lychees from china/taiwan specifically?

Alert! Fresh (?) Mangosteens Spotted in C-town!

fresh mangosteen from thailand is legal as of this year. Ive been dying to taste the fresh one too and went to china town to try and find some coz id heard the rumor that they had hit the US. Unfortunately I got taken and bought ten pounds of frozen ones. yuk they are seriously nasty.threw them straight in the garbage where the fruit and the seller belong. where exactly did you find the fresh ones- i want to go back and try and find them.
Kings supermarket in NJ are selling them 4 fruits for $15. so 4 for $10 is a good deal.

best place in nyc for upscale meal

I think most of the upscale kosher places pay only token homage to the chicken (how you can charge $30 for a chicken breast is pretty mindboggling).
In general though, I highly recommend Solo.
I have eaten at Solo, Levana, and Mike's Bistro. I think Mike's Bistro had the best decor and ambience, but for me, the food at solo, kicked. I ordered pretty much the same food at Solo and Mike's Bistro. Sweetbreads, Steak, and Apple cobbler with ice cream. The sweetbreads and Aplle cobbler were noticibly better at Solo. The steak was about the same.

Is there such a thing as kosher frozen chicken nuggets that actually containly mainly white meat chicken, as opposed to the processed garbage that is prevalent in any packet of kosher frozen chicken nuggets I have ever bought?

Kosher food in Cancun?

I will be vacationing in Cancun in January and was wondering whether there are any kosher restuarants or takeout places in Cancun or Playa Del Carmen?
