Don Burrito Restaurant. Newkirk Plaza. Family owned, authentically Mexican. Beats Benny's Burrito's and worth the trek.

I turn to the classic 油炸圈饼 glazed circular shaped fried dough with a hole in the middle when I'm really in need to pleasure my mouth. I discovered this fine family owned establishment serves just the said hole as a separate item on the menu. Some of the more adventurous people on chowhound are encouraged to try this and report back. It is a treat if you find Mr Dunkin behind the counter. He appears to have Mexicanisque heritage and told me he often gets up very early in the morning to make these treats for all ethnicities to put into stomachs.

For the best burrito shop, go to the advertised Chipotle shop located on 8th Ave, I recommend the beer and newspaper.

Maison Kayser Bryant park is finally open

The green eclair at Lady M is green tea and very good.

Best Fried Rice?

great suggestion with the oxtail fried rice. one of my favorite dishes. i think it's a relative bargain compared to the rest of the blue ribbon sushi menu.

Ssamjang and Kochujang in Chinatown?

agree with the suggestion. there are lots of brands to choose between. if it helps to filter, from the many i looked at only 1 or 2 did not have corn syrup or other additives in the ingredients.

Aburiya Kinnosuke is 1 of my favorite's in NY. I think you will like it from looking at your list. Really good authentic food and friendly service. They have a wide range of high quality home style dishes and daily specials list. I love the grilled fishes and seafood in general. But, the pot of rice with baby anchovies is the stand out for me.

Where to buy Jamon Serrano/Iberico de Bellota?

Fairway and maybe now at Murray's Cheese.

Would be great to hear what people think for anyone here that tried the import.

Post pregnancy sushi

Congratulations. My wife wanted sushi as the first meal after she gave birth. We ordered to go from Yasuda as the very first meal after she delivered in NYU. It was not omakase but I picked out of the list what they marked recommended for the day and added on some of her favorites. Eating in the hospital is not the same as being there in front of the bar but she enjoyed it very much.

Reservations through Open Table?

I reserved EMP through OT for a special occasion a couple of years ago. Noted it was my wife's birthday in the notes section. EMP customized the header of our menus wishing her happy birthday. Very nice touch. They bought out an additional dessert.
