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: Vegetable spicy cold noodle at Shangri-La Asian Fusion Kitchen (74-14 37th Rd., Jackson Heights, Queens,917-843-2870).

Robert Sietsema: Soy-braised pork belly and lotus root at En Japanese Brasserie (435 Hudson Street, 212-647-9196).

Rebecca Marx: Fried halloumi cheese with Mother-in-Law’s kimchi, made at home.
