"Yeah.. There's always that ;) Also, on Mulberry between Canal and Bayard is a spot called Xe Lua. They have a bit more variety on the herbs than most, and usually some of the fresher basil. Also, if you like Pho, I would think you might be down…"

"Thank you Garett! I will do that. Had no idea there was one up on Mott St. Also good to know about St. Marks - I usually go there for beer and sliders ;)"

Best Coffee In NYC

Hello my name is Alexandrea and I am a coffee addict.

It's true - I have given it up several times over the years, but I keep going back. My friend (and partner in crime) and I decided to review some of our favorite spots in NYC for a solid cup a joe.

Here are some of our favorites - hope you find the buzz just as satisfying as we have :)

Best Eats In NYC...and sometimes Brooklyn :)

Living in NYC and being a Foodie - one has to find the best that one can and then share with others (or at least I've taken that part on as a personal mission).

This blog is a compilation of the best places I've found in NYC so far. From the best NY slice to the most delicious fusion cuisine this blog will cover it all. Go and try some of the places I've found and let me know what you think. Hopefully you will be as delighted as I was to find them.

Seach For The Best Pho In NYC

Pho isn't a food love - it is an addiction. Once you've had it you will crave it like a pregnant lady craves pickles and ice cream (ok I'm guessing here - have no kids myself).

So where does one go to get that satisfying bowl of perfection in the city? I have no idea - yet!

No one could tell me of a great Pho place. They could say "oh yeah I had Vietnamese food at X once. It wasn't that great." Not the glowing review I was looking for.

So I started my own search… Continue

Hey Alexandra, Nhan Thrang on Baxter Street, just below Canal has the "Best Pho" in New York. And I know what Great Pho is and should taste like. I spent time in VIETNAM, Saigon and Chau Doc in the Meknog Delta. I've been going to Nhan Trang for 16 years, it's great and the Pho is Off-the-Chain Good... I usually always get the Pho # 1 with Brisket, fresh Eye Round and Tendon. My ex-girlfriend and I used to eat here almost every Sunday Lunch for 3 years. Yeah it's great and Pho Bang on Elizabeth Street is awsome as well. Dam I miss those places.
Wanna put a Ghet group together for a meal ther. Let me know. You can do research. Dan

5. Poller Guerilla Cooking in Cologne at Köln-Poll

June 19, 2014 all day
Als ich Caro kennenlernte, stellen wir beide schnell fest, dass wir gerne & gut essen, aber eigentlich noch lieber brutzelnd und experimentierend hinterm Herd stehen und für liebe Menschen kochen. Schnell war die Idee geboren (naja…aus N.Y. und Berlin geklaut und vororttauglich abgewandelt) in unseren eigenen vier Wänden ein Guerilla Cooking zu veranstalten. Soll heißen: Wir kochen und unsere Gäste bezahlen einen vorher festgelegten…See More
