NY CHOW Report: Vegetarian Ramen at Chuko

Not impressed..The Restaurant is cramped..The greeter is taking names and numbers to call you and want you to wait outside.. They tell me about an hour wait take my cell and kick me out.. They did not even know their own number when I asked... To funny, their losing business by the boat load...This place is not for me...They lost my business without even a try !!

How about Little Neck ??

Ok earlier I had thought I would be moving to Auburndale but that fell thru...

Thanks,

Cuban Style ...

Hello everyone,
Just wanted to let you about a Cuban Restaurant that is very good and actually has a few locations.....
It's Cabana's.. Great Cuban style food and drinks....
The original is in Forest Hills but they have at least 3 others, 2 in Manhattan (One's in the Seaport) and 1 in West Pam Beach, Florida......
Enjoy,
Vin

Tradition ........

Hello All,
As we enter the holiday season, I started to think about all the traditional holiday dishes we are slowly losing from generation to generation....As our parents get older and as our grandparents lose their memories or worse yet finally pass away,
I thought it would be a great idea, (and I hope you all agree)to have as many people as possible add a recipe or a holiday tradition to this thread to keep the tradition and that loved ones memory alive!!!
Here's how I would like to have it work:
I would love to have everyone enter a recipe or a tradition or both. Then dedicate it to that special relative or friend they enjoyed it with. Tell us a little bit about the tradition or recipe and about the person that your dedicating the recipe too.
I hope this turns out to be as special as think it could !!
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all,
Vin

NYC Food Myths

Astoria still has at least one good Greek Restaurant left...
Stamatis.....Actually has 2 locations, one is on 29th st & 23 ave and the other is on Broadway not sure of the cross street somewhere in the 30's I believe !!
Excellent Greek food !!!
