Little Dokebi - Greenpoint Korean


Its true, polish people suck at Stone Hot Pot Bim Bim Bap.

Luckily Little Dokebi opened its doors in Greenpoint! Its the perfect addition to the Mcgorlick park area of little poland. There is Hite on tap, delicious little appetizers and Korean taco/burritos!

No table side bbq which is good because the place is small and I dont always want to smell like roast meat :)  and the banchan are kinda sparse, but you ain't in K-town Dorthy so shut yo mouth!

And then open yo mouth for the stone hot pot, its sizzling good!

Suzume - Williamsburg dirty knees


Good vibes, ate at the bar and maybe it was all that sake but I left feeling great!

Sashimi special was fancy fresh. Tasty wings with complex flavor (though they could use a little crisping imo).

Ramen was fine, not "foiiiiiiiine!" mind you, but just fine. Meat was tasty, broth tasted a little like wonton soup (I like my broth rich and complex), the noodles were firm, however the in bowl presentation was kinda schloppy. What stood out was the perfection of the poached egg (ahhh the ramen egg, so easy for a restaurant to F this up. Suzume plopped it in my bowl with skillz!).

Pricetag? expect to pay NWD (new williamsburg dollar). yeah its more then I wanna spend, but 12$ tiny entree is the norm now and I gotta eat.

Pudge Knuckles - Northside Coffee

The dark roast is deep and dark as the souls of bankers buying into the Northside Piers.

Their chocolate pretzel bite cups looked good too but it was a bit early for me.

Espiga bakery - Jackson heights Mexican






Holy Mole!

Legit mexican. No Cali, No Tex, Just ghetto flavor!

The tacos are awesome, huge and plentiful on fresh rolled masa tortillas. For $2.50 you can't loose. The hurachas are similar in size to the taco, so it doesn't really make sense that they should be $8.50 for the addition of only a little garnish and lettuce. The big wow factor was their special (holy mole!) I'm not usually a big mole fan, it's usually too dark, a little burnt, and a confusion of spice. This one was sweet, spicy and just the right flavor profile to leave me craving more!
