Machacado

Does anyone know where I might be able to find tacos with Machacado (dried beef and scrambled eggs) in NYC? It can be in any borough.

Piccola Venezia vs. Parkside and Trattoria L'incontro

You should try Rudar Soccer Club. It is cheaper then Piccolo Venezia and really good.

Turkish goods in NY

If you want to go to Sunnyside in Queens you can try Turkiyem Market on Skillman Ave.

German Restaurant for Large Group?

Have you thought of the Bohemian Beer Hall in Astoria? They could handle that outside. You should give them a call. Zum Stammtisch is good but maybey far away. You might try Manor Oktoberfest in Forrest Hills if that area is good for you.

Brioche?

You might try Gian and Piero bakery in Astoria. You might call ahead and see if they have it. I buy briche with colored eggs baked in for my daughter there around Easter. They are really good. I think that the bakery are maybe Napolitani from their accents.

Where can I buy mayonnaise in a tube in Manhattan?

I know that this is not in Manhattan, but there is a place Called Green Parrot on Queens Blvd in Sunnyside that has this product. This is actually a kind of cool Balkan sotore with lots of good products. It is next to the 46th street stop on the seven train. maybe 20 minutes from grand Central.

Great African restaurant?

Le Dakar was closed when I walked by the other day. Papaye on the Grand Concourse is good.

5 dinners in Astoria area for the family - hoping for feedback :-)

Basil Pizza
Agnati Mezze
Not for dinner but awesome- Artopolis Bakery
Taverna Kyclades
John Brown is very, very overrated- If you want soemthing different, try Copacabana Pizza and Grill- They have good cheap Brazillian BBQ.
Loukoumi Taverna-Off the beaten track but really good.

Just moved to Parkchester (The Bronx)...

I second Taqueria Tlaxcalli it is really good. I think that it even made it into the Michelin Guide. There is a big asian market close to the Taqueria as well. There is a an interesting Yemeni place in Van Nest next to Parkchester. There is also some good Bangladehsi in Parkchester. It is not food related, but check out the movie theatre in Parkchester. It has an amazing art Deco interior.

A tasty gyro....

Try the Kwik Food cart at 45th and 6th Av. The lamb pita is way above average.
