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: Landjager (cured Austrian sausage) at Edi & the Wolf (102 Avenue C, 212-598-1040).

Victoria Bekiempis: Vegetables with crispy paper rice noodle roll, from Mei Li Wah Bakery (62-64 Bayard Street, 212-966-7866).

Robert Sietsema: Fried wontons with mustard and duck sauce at Dinastia China (145 West 72nd Street, 212-362-3801).

Rebecca Marx: Beet, cabbage, and carrot slaw with apple cider vinaigrette and cumin seeds, made at home.

Chantal Martineau: Farmer’s Market Tasting at Veritas (43 East 20th Street, 212-353-3700).
