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 …
Robert Sietsema: Hae jang guk (fiery stew with oxtail and ox blood) at Kun Jip (9 West 32nd Street, 212-216-9487).
Chantal Martineau: Escabeche Tacos with sweet and sour pineapple salsa, served in wonton taco shells at Lani Kai (525 Broome Street, 646-596-8778).
Victoria Bekiempis: Chocolate-chip cookie, made by my roommate.
Rebecca Marx: A spoonful of Poivre d’Or‘s banana jam eaten with a spoonful of confiture au lait from Tell Tale Preserves.
Lauren Shockey: Pecan sticky bun at Peels (325 Bowery, 646-602-7015).
