Year of the Takeout Day 195: New City Kitchen Express
Roast Pork with Snow Peas from New City Kitchen Express (4731 Vernon Boulevard, Long Island City, 718-729-8580)
We're not too keen on roast pork in dishes -- often it comes across as too candied and leathery -- but here, the meat has a smoky vibe and remains juicy.
Also, the snow peas and sweetly crisp carrots seem quite fresh in this $5 dish.
We left New City with a full belly and no complaints.
