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 banh mi at Plump Dumpling (174 2nd Avenue, 212-254-2868).

Rebecca Marx: A hard-boiled egg with homemade tomato jam and Dijon, on sourdough.

Robert Sietsema: Squid ink and hot sesame oil soup at Kin Shop (469 Sixth Avenue, 212-675-4295).
