Food Trucks

Was at the DUMBO art feastival this weekend Great time and the Carousel was Fantastic! On the down side FOOD TRUCKS tried several waited in line and waited There was not ONE serving that anyone in my group liked (4 adults 5 kids) Especially bad Grilled Cheese and Arepas Why are we so taken up with these trucks If you are going to Overprice your food at least be proud of it

Where did all the Chinese mustard go?

Thought I was the only one Always ask for mustard in delivery and never get it Yet when I pick they always give me extra of the prepared in the little cup I go back a lot of years with American Chineese and always remember a bowl of noodles and Duck sauce and Mustard on the table Good for dipping and Egg Roll

more Brooklyn Fairway disappointment

Produce doesn't last 2 days Better shopping at Rossmans 26st @ 3rd ave Not happy with the cheese much better quality at most Queens shops Lets remember Fairway is not the "Family" store they play themselves to be They have gone corporate That being said a SMART shopper can do well there

Best Knifes Not you whole paycheck?

bought a 8" Henkels on sale in Macys in 1990 THis knife still sharpens well and is my go to knife. Also have a 12" Korin which is a work horse. Have several Globals which I bought after seeing Bobby Flay use them on the early days of Food TV. They are light and sharpen well and are good all around knives. If I needed or had the urge for a new knife now would try the forschner line Have read some good thing about them

Citi Field Eats

Not a big fan of Blue Smoke, cant see how anything "on the dry side" is a value.
Will be attending a game soon just wondering how the pricing was on things like hot dogs, burgers etc

Mulberry Street Italian

Luna's has been closed for several years. Last of the good "red sauce" places on the block. Everything else is just a tourist trap. Get you in and seated and all of a sudden family sytle servings and prices.If I cant get to Arthur Ave. I stay home

Blue Smoke or Hill Country??

Blue Smoke has lost its charm and has priced itself out. It was the start of good BBQ in NYC but hasent kept up. Hill Country is good but I am hard pressed to see if it will last 1 year. Too complicated to handle a NY croud. Bar too small to wait at but other than that It is GOOD Texas Q. No pork but the brisket is done very well. Sides a little overpriced for the portion but still good. If I have the time Dino is still the best. If you remember Pearsons you know what I mean

Katz Deli line question....

If you are at Katz get a sandwich! You didnt go there for a burger or philly cheese. Hotdogs are good for the kids, and if you are a real Katz trooper you will have a hotdog while waiting for your sandwich...and dont forget the pickles and tomatoe

BBQ - Any suggestions?

Dino is the best in a city that has no good Q since Pearsons in gone. RUB ate there once poor cornbread lackluster food, Virgils is for the Broadway tourist croud
