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: Wonton soup at Shu Jiao Fu Zhou Cuisine (118 Eldridge Street, 212-625-2532).

Victoria Bekiempis: Mock chicken banh mi, from Lotus Vietnamese Sandwiches (229 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-399-2899).

Rebecca Marx: A wedge of Pleasant Ridge Reserve at 61 Local (61 Bergen Street, Brooklyn).

Chantal Martineau: Chouquettes at Beny’s Delice (903 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, 646-704-1315).
