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.

Sizzlin’ Fajita Monday in NYC

Cilantro is one of those upper west side eateries that has been around for about ten years now, but is easy to dismiss as just another poser Mexican joint. Yeah, we know Californians like to proclaim that they have better Mexican on the west coast, but sometimes we here on the eastern side need a fix of sizzlin’ eats and guac too.

I only come here on Monday nights. In fact, I travel across town to come here for dinner on Monday nights. As we all know, travelling crosstown in NYC is usually is an exercise in frustration. So there has to be a good reason. Continue reading Sizzlin’ Fajita Monday in NYC

Making My Taste Buds Sing at Saigon Market NYC

Wow, this place brought back amazing food memories of their old sister location that used to be up by me on 88th and 2nd ave in NYC. We were craving some of their wonderfully tasty plates after discussing some of the good eats we had there before the spot by us closed. Well, sometimes wishes do come through when gluttony is involved!

We were recently down by the Union Square area and my girl remembered that Saigon Market was close by, and being that it was dinner time we decided to forgo the normal Seamless route or cooking at home to head over here and feast! Continue reading Making My Taste Buds Sing at Saigon Market NYC

Olio e Piu – pizza love while dining al fresco in NYC

o
Made the mistake of sharing this pizza. Wanted it all!

Sitting outside and eating pizza on a beautiful Spring Day in NYC. One of the joys of life here in the big city.

We have all been there. You walk by a spot seemingly hundreds of times and never notice it. If you do, then you never bother to give it a try. One late afternoon the weather was too good to pass by again, and a table was beckoning to us to take a seat at Olio e Piu.

While wandering around the West Village we stopped by this resto for an early dinner. I can’t even count the amount of times I had walked by this place, but so glad the aroma of pizza and Italian food lured us in. As it was a perfectly sunny day out and not too hot we sat on the outside patio seating which is kind of picturesque with all the flowers and plants adorning the space. A friendly waiter handed us menus and told us about some specials. We were having none of that! Just hand over the pizza and back away slowly. Back away!
