Where to get pork neck in NYC?

A lot of Korean restaurants will have gamcha tang, it's pork neck stew with potatoes. So check out K-town, I know Gahm mi oak and Cho dang gol have it.

What is the best best Korean soft tofu stew in the NYC area?

Not sure, it's been at least a month since I've been.

Horse meat in Manhattan

Well, not in Manhattan, but there's an Ikea in Brooklyn and also in NJ. Don't they have horse meatballs?

What is the best best Korean soft tofu stew in the NYC area?

NY Tofu House in the east village is also known as So Kong Dong, I guess they wanted a more marketable name. It's pretty good too.

BCD Tofu House OPEN!

Were they closed? I hadn't noticed, I'll have to check it out. I recently ate at the BCD Tofu house in Ft Lee, it was excellent.

Lillie's Victorian Establishment--Union Square

Yeah, it's a good place to grab a beer or a scotch or three. The food is pretty decent.

I love going around the holidays, they really go crazy with the Christmas decorations.

Thumbs-up for G2B in Durham.

Dang, I miss Starlu. I had some great meals there.

Recommendations near the Cloisters?

Malecon has good roast chicken and the mofongo de longaniza is good too.

El Conde, right next door, does a pretty good skirt steak.

Manolo, which is on 176th and Bway, has decent tapas and wine menu.

Closer to the Cloisters, there are a number of restaurants around 187th and Ft Washington. Refried Beans has standard Tex/Mex- okay, not great. Kismat has standard north Indian food. Bleu is OK, but in my opinion overpriced. Same with the restaurant Next Door.

If it's a nice day, stop in Franks Gourmet Market- they have a good number of prepared foods and you could do up a picnic.

Chapel Hill, NC for long weekend BBQ suggestions?

Agreed- skip Mama Dips, try to go to Crooks Corner for brunch. Very very good.

mexican grocery near 181?

Not exactly near 181 but Las Palmas between 162nd and 163rd is a Mexican grocery, they have a restaurant that is pretty good too.

K-town lunch with parents?

Check out Cho Dang Gol on 35th. They don't have grills for BBQ, but the stir fry dishes and casseroles are pretty good and the bibimbap is very good.

Sundubu

Don't eat two bowls?

I have my doubts that is accurate nutritional info, though.

SE Asian - Thai or Vietnamese - on the west side

UWS, Hells Kitchen, West Village, doesn't matter. I never go out for this kind of food, so I don't know good places. My parents are coming to town and I want to take them someplace nice before they go to the theater. I'd rather avoid Theater District restaurants, but it's not out of the question.

Food quality and price are my biggest concerns; it's actually better if the place is not too fancy.

Any recommendations?

Allen & Son BBQ - Chapel Hill?

This happens all the time. It's best to call them before going there to make sure they are open.

Koreatown Christmas - group of 10 need help

I love love love Cho Dang Gol, 35th and 6th. Personal favorite is the ssam jung sik, which is pork belly and squid stir fry served up with lettuce for wrapping. Soups and stews are great too!

Maybe try to make a reservation for a group that big. I see families that size there all the time though.

What's a good place for Bibimbap?

I really love Cho Dang Gol, it is very rustic and delicious food. Their bibimbap is very good.

The food court on 32nd has decent bibimbap as well. You will see a lot of high school kids/ college freshmans here.

Tamil Nadu Bhavan - anyone been?

I've been there a half dozen times or so and I've always been happy...

I think they have a private back area, but not sure.

I have it on good word that it's "authentic" if that matters

Dinosaur, Hill Country or Daisy May's

Just went to Daisy Mays, terrific ribs and brisket

If I had it to do over again (and had one other person), I would share a plate and order extra sides - mac and cheese, collards, and creamed spinach are all great.

That said, I probably could have plowed through a whole other plate of ribs...

There was a party doing a pig pickin when I went, that looks like fun and worthwhile

Crispy Fried Whole Fish with Chili Sauce - UWS

Where can I get good crispy fried whole fish in UWS? I have looked on a couple of menus of various vietnamese and malaysian restaurants without much luck. It is one of my all-time favorite things to eat, and I'd like to find it!

Thanks!!!
