Food Scouting in Williamsburg and BAM West Indian Fair


Mole guac making
Mole has added a place near the smorg food fest(bklyn flea sponsored)...kent and 4st. We love the one on jane and hudson and their cubby hole on Houston but this one has room. I've heard about Spuytin Duyvil. The highlight was Mole's shrimp tacos below and the guacamole and tamale..

and this was chance to scout them out on the way to Woody's time travel Paris love letter movie.  The BAM West Indian booths requires some tracking and stalking too.Earlier we passed the reopening of early 20th century Montes on Carol near the Gowanus, Venice of Bklyn.    Móle on Urbanspoon

Men in black cars
saddle up and tractor on down to food heaven
taggliatelle with brussel sprouts and tomato butter and burata and the falanghina and the cafe and the likeable staff and culture and the fun oriented seating and the engaging chefs...this is what we wanted to kick off memorial day week end. And we walked past the men in black 3 crew filming stunts grateful they didn't spray us with their forgetful spray because we wanted to remember BRUCIES on Court and Baltic. Brucie on Urbanspoon

Surfish ...Peruvian newcomer with garden on 5av bet 4st and 5st Park Slope

Last night the garden was splendid LA like..without the floods and quakes. The fried oysters and the chips and the cauliflower soup and the paella(except for the cold rubbery squid pieces) were superb as was the avocado salad. The wine list is brief but "cherce" (bklyn for choice). The folks ,like their counterparts a few blocks away at Columbia, are warm and natural hosts. This place will be getting positive go now and avoid the waits.

Katz's Deli on Houston around the corner from my grandpas place on Stanton; lower east side

What is derma?

 Send a derma with gravy to your kid in the navy. Old school deli full of fun and fat. Corned beef not like with cabbage..spicy salami...and how come they stopped making diet cel-ray. Glad I skipped lunch.

WALLE BAR RESTAURANT . Chinese fused with American but not like chop suey

chine mac and cheese?

249 e53rd st Manhattan. The Ribs soaked in tamarind and the birds nest filled with vegies and tofu and the chicken were all superb. As was the Albarino. The waiter came from Nepal via Minnesota with a likeability and knowledge that served him and us well. The vegi side needed sesame oil or something to juice it up but all the greens were fresh and well cooked. I loved the chicken dumplings and think this Chin Chin kin will thrive.

The Brothers Moon in Hopewell NJ

salad trio
This is the perfect spot for a Sunday brunch or

a Wednesday lunch or a holiday family gathering because it is casual and high cuisine and comfort food like crab cakes with celery root slaw and local asparahus soup and asparagus risotto and a lovely salad trio.
