Spitzers for Beers, Brunch or Dinner

Spitzer’s in the Lower East Side is an addictive bar. It’s the sort of place you always end up at when you don’t know where to end up at. It’s trusty, true and renowned for its great selection of beers. But beer aside, it also serves, brunch, lunch and dinner – the former of which … Continue reading

Motorino Pizza

As I’ve mentioned before, The Bogan is not easily a fan of pizza – he’s a tough critic. His criteria are few, but extremely defined. The base must be thin and crusty, but not dry, and preferably wood-fired. The toppings should be extremely fresh and used plentifully, without being overdone. Finally, the number of toppings … Continue reading

Hide-Chan Ramen – More Pork Fat Than You Can Poke a Chopstick at!

One food the Bogan and I can usually always agree on is ramen. I’ve never known the Bogan turn down a big bowl of salty, hot noodles – especially on a cold or rainy evening. New York is home to a few decent ramen houses, too. The first one we became addicted too was Noodle … Continue reading

New York’s Best Burger – Corner Bistro

You don’t go to Corner Bistro for smiling service (I’m not sure if the bar men or wait staff have ever heard a joke in their lives) or a serene atmosphere, you go for the $6.50 Corner Bistro burger… arguably the best burger in New York City. It is basically 1 big, fat meat patty … Continue reading

Life Changing Desert at Co. – Strawnoffee Pie

Co. is best known for their pizza’s, which are delicious, but may I introduce you to another side of Co. which after your meal (and a full belly) you may not have met before; that is, desert. There is occasionally an evening when the Bogan and I will enjoy a nice meal at home and … Continue reading

New York’s best Pulled Pork Roll – Mooncake Foods

The first time we tried Mooncake Foods we were on a strict time schedule, we had to be in and out in 30mins to make our show at Upright Citizens Brigade… we made it with 5 mins to spare! For the Bogan and I, Mooncake is our local and is conveniently located up the street. … Continue reading

Sushi Samba – Japanese with a little latino mixed in!

Sushi Samba is described as “Japanese, Brazilian, South America, Nuevo Latino” – which is long for really good! There are so many interesting things on the menu it’s hard to narrow it down and make a choice – it definitely helps to take a friend (or 2 or 3) so you can order an array … Continue reading
