Trader Joe's on Staten Island

It's open. Prices are high. They charge $0.29 for one banana. Sirloin steak was $13.99 a pound. Are they nuts? I walked out. No wine sold there either.

I Stuffed a Turkey with Twinkies

That turkey should be basted with insulin.

Staten Island--is there hope???

We went to Golden's Sunday afternoon. We had pastrami on club, frenchies and soda. The sandwich I had was terrible. Very small club bread (4"). It seems like they put the scraps of the meat from the slicer on it. It was dry and really sub par. That will be my last trip to Golden's. I will go to the Mill Basin Deli. East 53 st & Ave. T, Bklyn. They always have the best sandwiches. It is a shame that as a Staten Islander I have to go to Brooklyn for a good pastrami sandwich.

Before you think about the Unicorn Diner, go here:
The Unicorn has 15 health dept.inspection violation points. Terrible. Check out the places you eat before going there. NYC posts the inspection violations at the link I gave.

Best knish in Manhattan, 2006

I went to the Carnegie for a tongue sandwich to go with a potato kinish. They packed a turkey sandwich by mistake. I called them from home and they said come back when I can and they will give me a tongue sandwich. So, I ate the kinish and it was sour. I threw it out. The next week I came back for the tougue sandwich and bought another kinish. That kinish was ok but not great.

Queens Pizza Tour - I need help!

Romano's Pizza is on Cross Bay Blvd. across the street from New Park Pizza.
I go there from Staten Island because it is so good. We get a large sausage with extra cheese. The sauce they use is terrific.

Nice experience at Ozone Pizza

Try Romano's across the street from New Park. Great pizza and plenty of toppings.
New park has a chinsy pizza pie.

Great Staten Island Pizza

Denino's has an expensive pie (medium size). They are cheap on the cheese and toppings. I am forced to go because soma of my misguided family likes it. Also, some don't like it.
I like Gino's on Forest Avenue much better. They have great pizza and also a brick oven if you like that type of pie.
