Welcome to The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday, where we endeavor to remember the very best thing we stuffed down our gullets over the past 24 hours. Why? Because the only thing better than enjoying a meal is wallowing in the memory of one savored in the recent past.
Today’s fond reminiscences …
Robert Sietsema: The cold fried chicken appetizer soaked in vinegar with green pickled chiles and red dried chiles, flavored with sesame seeds and star anise, at Henan Cuisine (136-31 41st Avenue, Flushing, Queens, 718-762-1818).
Chantal Martineau: Perfectly ripe and juicy Concord grapes from the Greenmarket.
Sarah DiGregorio: Fried tilapia arepa at Guayoyo (67 First Avenue, 212-979-6646).
Rebecca Marx: A nectarine purchased a couple of days ago at the Union Square Greenmarket.
