a*bistro

Definitely not run by anyone. Just the couple. They used to be my landlords when I lived in Brooklyn. I lived there during the birth of Abistro and through the infant years. It is so fabulous, I love it, and I love them!!

Eggplant and Tomato Stew (Guiso de Berenjena)

Wow! This recipe saved my life last night. It is so hard to find a recipe to which I can find all the ingredients in Yemen. I had to substitute the vinegar, but everything else was available and there wasnt one bit left at the end of the party. It was delicious! Thanks!!

Street food longings

My favorite street cart food was when I lived in the Czech Republic. I remember being with my dad on cold nights and we would get Grog and Spiced Wine. Too bad America has alcohol in the streets laws... in Czech is a necessity of survival in the bitter cold.

And now I live in Yemen and there is nothing better than Yemeni schwarma (regular schwarma meat with spiced cabbage, tomato, pickle, on arabic bread and toasted) or their egg bread... basically raw flat bread put on a flat skillet... cooks for a few seconds.... break an egg on top of it.... throw in some chives... scramble it with your fingers.... take a sword type knife and flip it... Mmmmm.... Yumm....

Pizza

Okay. So this is a sensitive topic... obviously. New Park Pizza in Howard Beach has the best slice, hands down. And if you like Sicilian then you MUST get it from Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn.... your life will be changed.

Corn on a stick?

Dont forget that Habana Cafe is also located in Fort Greene, Brooklyn at the Lafayette C train stop right on Fulton Street. They show outdoor movies in the summer and have a blender bicycle for smoothies!!! 5 dollars if they peddle and 4 dollars if you do the job yourself!! Worth a visit to Brooklyn... They do composting classes and environmental education, the entire restaurant is solar powered.. and it is painted bright green!!! Which makes the "corn on a stick" even more enjoyable... Mmmmm....
