La Taberna

The second lunch stop and the third meal stop for the day. Just steps away from our first lunch stop that day, this place was busier than the first. And it looked more inviting too. So allowing baby K to be a baby, run and play, we preferred to just ...

Recipe: Easy Chicken Salad & Stuffed Tomatoes

A couple of weeks ago, I shared these little chicken salad stuffed tomatoes on my instagram. I’m sharing them on the blog for two reasons: 1) I’m always in need of quick/somewhat healthy lunch ideas so maybe someone else out there is ...

Sweet Potato Sausage Soup

Sweet potato sausage stew does not sound like a diet solution, and it is most definitely not. I’m a big believer in the magical dieting power of vegetable soups, but when you throw meat into the mix, the fat content goes up significantly. But ...

Dill & Parsley

The good: You get to choose all of the base fare, if you want – like white rice, wheat berries, cucumber tomato salad and lettuce.  You also get to choose all the warm toppings and all the cold toppings.  For the two sides, I got the baba ...

Num Pang

Last week I made two back to back visits to Num Pang for lunch. I tried their rice bowl. On the portion, it won’t leave you so full like a Chipotle bowl would, if you finish it. On the taste, it’s different. Quite oniony with the ...

Lunch yesterday was at 6b.  Read about it in some reviews on Yelp. My take – alright.  Like the usual New York delis, not cheap :) Taste – alright. Ambience – more uppy than the usual deli set ups. Come back?  Yes.    ...

Dos Toros Midtown

I went there today and got a taco. Alright taco, but they really just touch the guacamole. And charge your almost a dollar for it. That doesn’t seem right. Just doesn’t. Not for vegetarians.    Filed under: Manhattan, Mexican Tagged: ...

The Hamilton Inn

This has to be worst ravioli in brown butter sauce I’ve had.  Oh the picture the description painted and this is what arrived.  I’m surprised I braved some of it.  Hubster’s vegetarian burger was somewhat better. Not again! ...

Bacon and Leek Quiche

Lunch at Ai Fiori, New York

The problem with having a really fantastic first course in a multi-course meal is that everything else would fade in comparison. This is what happened to me when I had lunch at Ai Fiori at the Setai hotel in New York. One bite of the spaghetti ...
