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 …

Victoria Bekiempis: Guasacaca — Venezuelan-style guacamole — with plantain chips, from Caracas (291 Grand Street, Brooklyn, 718-218-6050).

Robert Sietsema: Midi-size burger with garlic mayo, raw onions, tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, and jalapeños at Joy Burger (361 Sixth Avenue, 212-414-9500).

Lauren Shockey: Penne with tomato and butter sauce, at home.

Rebecca Marx: A spinach salad with roasted sweet potatoes, purple onions, and goat’s-milk feta, at home.

Chantal Martineau: Spicy Crispy Cucumber at Han Dynasty (108 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, 215-922-1888).
