Sushi Burritos in NYC? Sushirrito blew my mind!


Sushi burritos? Heck yeah! The Salmon Samba Burrito is really good.

I decided to check this joint out recently while shopping in the area and needed some sort of healthy lunch. Yet, I wanted something different and unusual from the norm. I never had a sushi burrito before so this seemed like a cool choice. There are a multitude of places to eat at in NYC, from around the world, so it’s no surprise to see an unusual foodie experience such as Sushirrito pop up on the scene.

Ordering was pretty easy as the menu is not all that large but the choices are good, yet there is little leeway to customize your food option. My one other gripe is that they need to expand their cold drink choices. At least get some regular and diet sodas here in case people don’t want to choose water or some sort of prepackaged lemonade or iced tea. Continue reading Sushi Burritos in NYC?

Munching a tasty box close to home! Akami Sushi in NYC.

Salmon Teriyaki Bento Box lunch special!

It’s a steamy swamp-assy Sunday afternoon in NYC and I was starving. Did not want to walk far in this heat wave. Looked around for a tasty new box in my hood that I could bite into and not become a soaked mess.

All I had to do was walk around the block and this hot box was right in my face! Boom!

Akami Sushi located on 1st Avenue up in Yorkville is one of those places I never ventured into, even though it is right next to one of my regular bodegas. Bento Box lunch special for $9.50 until 4pm! Great value. Nothing like wrapping my lips around a tasty box close to home!

I read over the menu outside this sushi joint on 1st Ave advertising some lunch specials that run until late in the afternoon and realized they offer many choices. I’m always into getting my lips around a tasty new box so I slipped inside. Heck, now I kick myself for not eating out this box much sooner. Continue reading Munching a tasty box close to home!

Once in a while the need to escape NYC beckons. Don’t get me wrong as I love my city but there is a lot more to see and do outside of the five boroughs. Plenty of towns up north just a train ride away of only an hour or two ride.

After spending a day trip up in Cold Spring NY wandering around, shopping, snacking, exploring, and sightseeing we checked this place out for a mid-afternoon lunch. It was called Hudson Hil’s.

Great service.
Delicious food.
Quality portions.
Bright country-style decor.
Breakfast served all day.

Boom. Continue reading Day Tripping to Hudson Hil’s in Cold Spring NY.

The Supply House – craft beer and cozy in Yorkville!

o

There is nothing that satisfies my soul more than a delicious cold craft beer on a warm summer day in NYC. In all the years I have lived in my neighborhood we have been saddled by an overabundance of fratty bars and pubs that sling the all too familiar menu of bland flavorless mass-produced and over commercialized brew that we see in print and TV ads everywhere.

Alas, to my delight, and to many others who feel that yellow water called “light beer” is akin to heresy, over these past three years or so a beer bar resurgence arrived in the area to save our taste buds. With the 2nd Ave subway line almost finished many new businesses are coming. One of those bars that has taken up a home here is The Supply House. It’s another terrific craft beer purveyor that took a chance with Yorkville on the Upper East Side. This one in the spot at which the horrible frat boy and sorostitute haunt Tin Lizzy used to be. Not many in the hood liked that place, and it really had no reason to be in this part of town. Years ago it started out ok, but later developed into a bad scene. Good riddance as that bar was a cesspool and total vomitorium. It just attracted a less than stellar crowd. On the flip side, the new tenants in this spot are doing it right, and I wish them a lot of success. The diverse crowd I have seen here also seems to approve.
