Lunch on Wheels! Luckyim Thai Food Truck in NYC.

 

Sometimes you just have to follow the leader.

My boss at work suggested we hit up a food truck for lunch. Close by where I work in the Financial District the trucks are lined up fast and furious jockeying for position to lure in the hungry hangry lunch crowd. We were eyeing a few, and Luckyim Thai was right in front of us.

It’s a tough choice as there are a bunch, but he said the Thai at this small cart was pretty solid. Judging by the line waiting at this cart he was surely correct! Placed our orders, waited about 15 minutes, got our food and headed back to the office. Continue reading Lunch on Wheels! Luckyim Thai Food Truck in NYC.

Where an egg Mek Muffin grows in Brooklyn

I am still daydreaming about the Mek Muffin at Mekelburg’s……..

I’m all about a good egg sandwich and killer beer list. Especially when I am ultra-hangry after running my butt off at an early morning 5K. So many folks told me about this hidden gem of a place in Brooklyn NYC.  A below ground specialty food market, deli, and cafe tucked away off a side street at the bottom of a nondescript apartment building. Normally, this part of town is a bit of a hike for me to get to, but as I happened to be fairly close by I decided to make the trek over and check it out. My stomach and taste buds were ecstatic that I did. Continue reading Where an egg Mek Muffin grows in Brooklyn

A Milestone Birthday for this NYC Kid!

Even the Pope joined for my birthday dinner! Quite the audience I must say. He’s a big fan of Buca di Beppo’s meatballs. Too bad we all cursed so much. Hope he blessed us.

It sounds like an age-old cliché but time sure does go by fast when you’re having fun! Never did I think I would be sitting here at this point in my life reflecting back and yet still looking to the future. Age is a funny thing for sure. The young relish in their youth. The old wish they had more time. We look forward to celebrating the day of our birth, and yet many also dread that day when hitting a certain age plateau signifies what is perceived as past their prime. I never thought of age as something to fear or even be aware of. Seems like it’s more on the mind of those around me who keep bringing it up. Yes, it’s my birthday today, and as I prepare to party it up at the casino in Atlantic City I’m staying at with my loved ones all I want to do is gamble hard, eat with gluttonous abandon, booze it up, and enjoy life! Blackjack, craps, cocktails, high limit slots, cigars, a good whiskey, cold beer, and a tasty meal are all on the agenda. All. Week. Long. This Regular NYC Guy has come here to experience all the vices I can. Boom!

Slurping up some Pho and a Bahn Mi on a cold NYC day.

Now that it seems as if winter has come back to us and it was cold last night I walked by this place and immediately wanted to shove my face in a big bowl of Pho! Saigon Shack located in the Greenwich Village section of NYC is one of those spots to dive into a tasty hot bowl of Pho on a blustery raw day to warm your insides with some terrific Vietnamese comfort eats.

As usual, this place was packed. Had to wait for a few minutes to grab a seat. As I was solo last night it was easy to score a stool up by the counter as people chow down pretty quick here and move along. What’s cool is that a waitress keeping track of those on line took our orders in advance so when I sat down the food was placed in front of me almost within a minute or two. I didn’t have to drool too long while seeing those around me slurp up their delicious looking Pho.

Since I was starving I ordered a few Vietnamese specialties to safisfy my growling stomach. Continue reading Slurping up some Pho and a Bahn Mi on a cold NYC day.
