Sufi's

Hyesoon recommended Sufi's. She likes its combination of good food and late hours. I dropped by last night for what passes for a late-night meal for me. As you can see, the interior is quite elegant. The service was generally very good, although I must say that the rest room had absolutely no paper towels.

This is the table salad that starts off the meal. It has mint and some other herb I couldn't identify, walnuts, radishes, butter, cheese, and bread. Mixing and matching is part of the fun.

My main course was the veggie stew. I had another dish in mind when I ordered so I was a little surprised by what I got, but it was very good. The sauce was moderately spicy; it left a nice burn on my lips at the end of the meal. The stew includes eggplant, potatoes, and an assortment of other vegetables. It comes with a large serving of rice but I think the best way to enjoy it is Southern style---dunk your bread. Wiping the bowl clean is a sign of a good meal.

Serious Spices

During our Bengali breakfast session, Milu showed me her spice tray. All the spices here are whole and unground, allowing them to stay fresh for longer. She explained that this type of tray is standard issue in Indian kitchens. But the tray only her first line of defense in her never-ending war against boring food. This is her pantry. You can see the vast array of spices and flavorings that make up the core of her stock. I can't think of a better illustration of the palate of flavors that make up Indian cuisine.

Brooklyn: Ganso

When I hit the ground in Brooklyn, I was in the mood for something fast and fun. I decided to try this small, hip ramen shop. I ordered the traditional miso ramen. I enjoyed the slightly salty broth and the firm, toothy noodles. The egg and pork belly provided a nice spot of protein. It was a satisfying meal for a cold winter evening.

Tucker: Monterrey

This restaurant, part of a regional chain, has been in the neighborhood for untold ages. Its feel is cozy and welcoming. The staff is very nice. I ordered an interesting dish, pork and cheese on a sizzling platter. The cheese makes this a very different dish from fajitas. The cheese browns and crisps up, putting a real spin on the pork. The browned cheese complements the sweetness of the pork to make a very umami dish.
