Our Best Posts of the Week!


After a holiday in Taiwain feasting on gua bao, Clarissa came back to NYC and scoured the city for our best. This week, she revealed her five favorite pork buns.

Robert pulled some gems from the Official Foodie Handbook, a satirical book from the 1980s, and I was charmed by Michael Popek’s newest book, a collection of mysterious handwritten recipes found in the pages of used books.

Eric shared his notes on Sixpoint’s Sweet Action and headed to Brooklyn Pour, while Diana sampled the delicious Bolivian pastry, salteña, made by the brothers who run La Casa de Camba.

Robert found Telepan still shines, and I fell in love with a fried chicken sandwich on the Lower East Side.

In reviewland, I reported on the supper club that went pro in Soho, Cómodo, and Robert went to Flushing for Chinese fare with Korean, Mongolian, and Russian influences at Rural.

Happy weekending!
