The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday: Teriyaki, Celeriac, and Bao


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: Teriyaki ramen with cabbage, tomato, and raw egg, made at home.

Robert Sietsema: Leg of lamb with puréed celeriac, at the home of a friend.

Chantal Martineau: Haus Bao at BaoHaus (137 Rivington Street, 646-684-3835).

Lauren Shockey: Maple walnut ice cream, made at home.

Rebecca Marx: Spicy Cajun shrimp with sourdough bread and roasted asparagus, made at home.
