The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday


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: Arkansas black peppercorn ham from Citarella (424 Sixth Avenue, 212-874-0383).

Chantal Martineau: A drum of Mama El’s at Hill Country Chicken (1123 Broadway, 212-257-6446).

Sarah DiGregorio: Shrimp tempura onigiri from Café Zaiya (69 Cooper Square, 212-253-9700).

Rebecca Marx: Kale and sweet onion pakora at Tabla (11 Madison Avenue, 212-889-0667).
