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 …

Chantal Martineau: Potato, kale, and bacon soup, made at home.

Lauren Shockey: Chicken mole torta at Habana To-Go (229 Elizabeth Street, 212-625-2002).

Rebecca Marx: Achari paneer roll at the Kati Roll Company (49 West 39th Street, 212-730-4280).

Victoria Bekiempis: Miser wat — split lentils with ginger and berbere sauce — from
Meskerem (24 MacDougal Street, 212-777-8111).

Robert Sietsema: Currywurst at Heartbreak (29 East 2nd Street, 212-777-2502).
