God damn I'd be surprised if @willy cheesesteak isn't pre-diabetic or doesn't have high blood pressure. You should make a list on your blog or something.
Recommend me some good LES/Chinatown spots please. There's been a bunch of new places popping up and I'm looking for new places to eat.
I had Morgenstern's Ice Cream recently and it's pretty good. Out of all of the new artisanal ice cream shops popping up in the city, this one is actually pretty nice and has some unique flavors. I liked the Black Coconut Ash from there.
I second Taim for my favorite falafel, El Castillo de Jagua (either the Grand St or Rivington locations) for solid Dominican food, & Lam Zhou (I like the Beef Brisket Hand pulled noodle soup & fried dumplings (the best IMO)
I'll add my frugal recommendations (Chinatown heavy cause it's close & I'm cheap):
Coppelia - 24 hr diner in Chelsea for Cuban-ish/Spanish food & bar - Loma Saltado is very good and solid/inexpensive breakfast
Yakitori Taisho - Japanese Yakitori spot in St Marks. Pretty solid for Japanese barbecue & beer food. Small space though
Kossar's Bialys - Their bagels and bialys are solid, aim for AM for maximum freshness. They had a big renovation recently & I noticed they added a bunch of stuff to their menu. Doughnut Plant is next door too.
Banh Mi Saigon - My favorite Vietnamese sandwich (get the #1 spicy)
Pho Grand (#1 big bowl pho or any of its variations are good, grilled pork chops are great)
Nom Wah Tea Parlor is official for all day made to order dim sum. I brought some friends there and they enjoyed themselves & it was inexpensive.
Xing Wong BBQ - Cantonese roasted meats (duck, pork) are good here and Peking pork chop are good.
New Wong Rest Inc - Brother restaurant to Xing Wong on the same street. They make my favorite Cantonese breakfast food like congee (rice porridge) and fried crullers. Get the Zhaliang (fried cruller wrapped in a rice noodle roll)
Green Bo Restaurant - good Chinese restaurant (I like the Stewed Beef Noodle Soup)
Bo Ky Restaurant - Teochew Chinese food - My favorite is the Curry Chicken Noodle Soup with Ho Fun (broad rice noodles)
Some of the spots I listed are in Chinatown but here's more
Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken (when it's late at night and you want fried chicken but Popeyes is closed)
Boilermaker (for their burger)
Cheeky Sandwiches (for their biscuit and fried chicken sandwich and shrimp po' boy)
Kitty's A-Go-Go (for the Bisgel and fried chicken)
Speedy Romeo (The King Salami or Paul's Boutique)
Sunny and Annie's (for their Pho Sandwich)
99 Favor Taste (for the all you can eat Hot Pot/BBQ)
102 Noodles Town (for the best Pork with Thousand Year Egg congee (their Wonton Noodle Soups are also great))
Hop Shing Restaurant (for the Baked Roast Pork Bun "Cha Siu Bao")
May Wah Fast Food (for the Pork Chop Over Rice or Chicken Leg Over Rice)
Tai Pan Bakery (for all the different egg tarts)
West New Malaysia (for the Lychee Ice, Curry Beef Brisket Noodle Soup, Roti Canai, Hainanese Chicken On Rice)
You also have Bo Ky listed but the real stand out in that restaurant is the Country Style Duck (best in Chinatown), if you haven't tried it, get it. I usually get half a duck but can easily do a whole because it's so good!
Edited by willy cheesesteak - 8/12/16 at 3:38pmpost #11223 of 151628/12/16 at 3:33pmFuck this is brutal. Goes back to the discussion a few pages ago about the fashion industry being a shitty place to work.
Edit: Fixed the URL.

Definitely hit up Microbar if you're into beers, lots of Icelandic craft beers.
Tapas Barinn for food
Harpa (probably already on your list). There's a little hotdog stand in a parking lot near Harpa that's good for a snack.
I think Sruli Recht's workshop/store closed down? But the harbor area is worth walking around.post #11228 of 151628/13/16 at 6:09pmpost #11229 of 151628/13/16 at 8:00pmpost #11230 of 151628/13/16 at 8:11pmpost #11231 of 151628/13/16 at 8:38pmpost #11232 of 151628/15/16 at 11:27ampost #11233 of 151628/15/16 at 12:35pmThread Starterpost #11234 of 151628/15/16 at 5:45pmpost #11235 of 151628/15/16 at 7:52pm
