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 …

Victoria Bekiempis: Chicken vindaloo accented with bay leaf and cilantro at Taj Mahal Indian Restaurant (7315 Third Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-836-1512).

Chantal Martineau: Buttermilk biscuit with pumpkin butter at Char No. 4 (196 Smith Street, Brooklyn, 718-643-2106).

Robert Sietsema: Boiled pork hocks at Polonica (7214 Third Avenue, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, 718-630-5805).

Rebecca Marx: A maple egg cream, made at home.
