Angeleno moving to NYC looking for help!

Made it to Momofuku Ssam for lunch today! Really enjoyed the pork buns and duck over rice. I thought the lamb ssam was good but a bit heavy-handed with the sauce. All in all a fun meal though. I look forward to trying the other incarnations of Momofuku. Which should I go to next? Is the veggie ramen as good as I've heard some people say it is?

Alright, I'll check it out. Always good to have a reliable Lomo Saltado spot.

Thanks for the input on Pio Pio and Flor de Mayo. Szechuan Garden looks solid; I'll definitely check it out at some point.

Honestly, I'm quite nervous about the NYC Mexican scene, though by all accounts, it seems to have improved recently. I'm very excited to try Cosme because the chef of my favorite modern Mexican spot in California recommended it.

I am planning on going to the US Open! Interesting that you recommend the early rounds though. Is that for better seats, better atmosphere?

Lol that would not be my mother. She is sadly content to subsist on Chipotle and other poor imitations of Mexican, and she doesn't eat seafood.

Thanks for the welcome! Hmm as a grad student, a single lunch special that works for two to three meals is always a good idea!

Thanks for this list. I'll add it to my constantly growing places to go list! Sounds like I need to go to Awadh based on your suggestions and Pan's comment. Have you been to Flor de Mayo yet? That looks moderately interesting!

Alright, so I've arrived in New York, thought I'd check in real quickly. No notable food experiences yet, but I was able to try the Halal Guys chicken rice. It was certainly enjoyable, though probably not worthy of the line. The hot sauce was much hotter than I anticipated! I suppose that's a good thing though; I feared you New Yorkers were scared by the heat!

Also tried Shake Shack for the first time. All I'll say is give me an In-n-Out burger and Shake Shack fries and I'd be a happy camper.

Isaan Station in K-Town should be on people's radars.

Just saw this post, thanks for the read. I love your photos/the blog layout. Very bright and cheerful for a food blog...

Any word on Taco Maria dessert?

It seems dessert has been promised for a while now... has it actually happened? Anybody talked to Chef Salgado recently?

Interesting, I'll check these places out. It seems like NYC destroys LA when it comes to good Caribbean food!

Where to eat - foodies from NYC?

I'm moving to NYC in a month and am looking to immerse myself in Puerto Rican cuisine. Just googled most of these dishes, they look amazing. Where should I go to get them? Any specific restaurants?

August visit - 1 lunch, 2 dinners - how are my choices?

Honestly, the pizza just isn't that good compared to a plethora of other spots in LA. Without Silverton, I don't think it would have generated nearly the hype that is has.

Planning for LA in late August

Night Market Song is close to Dodger Stadium. So is Mexicali Tacos is well thought of around these parts.

I really think Chichen Itza is always worth a visit. My favorite Mexican in LA and not too far off the taco crawl. But get the panuchos instead of tacos.

The chicken is so damn good. By the way have you ever ordered the fried chicken?

oh em gee cevapi in LA! I need to find an excuse to get out to Monrovia. Just spent a month in Croatia, and I'm already missing the cevapi stands on every corner! Thanks for the tip. Any Croatian cheeses by chance? I crave Pag.

Did you by chance ask the owner what part of Croatia they're from?

If you post the photos online I'm sure the hounds on this site will give you 20k in honor of your good work. I can't imagine the struggles you endured as you navigated so many hams and the wilds of Spain.

Hah! I was thinking the same thing. How could she possibly do a job without a friend! The loneliness! The horror!

On a side note, my fiance and I would love to eat in Thailand for six months. You mind throwing me 20k?
