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: Grilled spicy beef salad at Pure Thai Shophouse (764 Ninth Avenue, 212-581-0999).

Victoria Bekiempis: Hot coffee with soy milk, from the Mud Truck (Fourth Avenue and 8th Street).

Robert Sietsema: Dai Wah chicken at Dai Wah Yummy City (7218 18th Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-837-8818).

Rebecca Marx: A mysore masala dosa with chutney and sambar at Sami Dosa Cart (West 39th Street and Broadway, 347-865-3353).

Chantal Martineau: A meat-and-potato Norwegian staple called kumpa at the Danish Club (741 65th Street, 718-748-7844).
