B&D halai restaurant

Anyone ever eat B&D halai restaurant(African cuisine[probably West African/maybe Guinean could be wrong] on 29th st between 6th ave and 7th ave. I ate there on Friday night and I thought it was interesting(Buffet style)[$5.99 per pound). I had a little bit of fish/lamb/rice/chicken/vegetables/other meats/rice. Thought it was quite interesting although I made the mistake picking out foods with too many bones(increased the weight and the price of the food). I recommend their homemade sorrel.

Bronx, Mexican, Bedford Park Blvd: Las Maravillas de Mexico

i highly reccommend Las Maravillas de Mexico especially their goat dish
unlike other restaurants their goat isnt curried so you get taste the goat meat in full form and comes with a side of orange rice and tortillas

Brooklynite seeks advice for a teen

Ippuddo might fit the bill noodle bar although its sometimes crowded
it has commual seating and a younger crowded than most nyc hotspots i have been to
the food is also good too

Lunch Ideas for Washington Square

For Pizza try No. 28 on carmine and bleecker for great naples/italian style pizza

Drinks after Babbo

Your favorite underrated slice?

Your favorite underrated slice?

naples 45 or something like that on carmine and bleeker is quite underrated
good italian style pizza, i think it might taste better than both john's and joe's
they used a lunch time special four summers ago with mini pie for $5-7

Looking for top quality bakeries in outer boroughs

sybil's in Ozone park is good on appx 131 & liberty ave

their homemade juices and casa-pone pastry is good

also try ye mei bakery in elmhurst on broadway and order their pork buns

if your in Jersey City phillippine bread house you should also try
