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 …

Lauren Shockey: Chicken soup with hand-cut noodles and dill at Fatty Johnson’s (50 Carmine Street, 212-929-5050).

Victoria Bekiempis: Tofu and vegetable curry soup, with udon noodles, from Je’Bon (15 St. Marks Place, 212-388-1313).

Robert Sietsema: Chilaquiles with green sauce and two fried eggs at Cholulita Deli (888 Broadway, Brooklyn, 718-926-2042).

Rebecca Marx: Kasha with a fried egg, hummus, and fava beans, at home.
