i've been feeling under the weather (i guess it's the cold/flu season)
and have been in hermit mode.

stepped out today for lunch at lite bites,
they never disappoint, especially with the price.
portobello wrap on top, and philly cheese steak.

i've been fighting off a bug lately, and i think that makes me want simple food that's still comforting - homey food.
i had to return to ash box again today,
since i had no appetite or desire to think of a better place,
but it couldn't have been more perfect!

tomato on bagel with broccoli corn chowder,
and kimchi (again) egg with brown (germinated) rice.

obviously on a kimchi kick as of late.
found some super old, sour kimchi in the fridge,
so cooked it up and paired it with some chilled tofu.
amazing classic! :)

lunch at ash box cafe.
special tofu kimchi over their germinated rice,
and turkey sandwich.

ever so simple, but so good, wholesome & satisfying.

dinner at m shanghai.
mooshoo pork, tictactoe chicken (sweet shredded), and morning glory greens.
chinatown is definitely better but this is a damn good replacement, albeit expensive.

picnic at governor's island (after "the dig" - go check it out!).
and dinner at tasty hand-pulled noodles for dinner.
yummy & cheap, my favorite!

dinner at soy to cleanse the aftermath of the wrath
(= burger dinner last night at pink pony, undocumented).
we hadn't been back here in 5 years or so!

kenchin jiru(vegetable & broth soup), spicy tuna & avocado bowl,
curry rice & croquette, and black sesame tofu pudding for dessert.
they were all so good, just a little small in portion.

another meal at café mogador.
i got my old favorite, avocado sandwich,
but their burger is damn good - i even suspect they mix in lamb meat,
it tastes meatier than other burgers.
(although the burger i had later that day at pink pony killed me - not in a good way - both the richness and the portion was too much!)

i love all sandwiches i've tried so far at boneshakers,
but the merckx wercks is truly amazing & flavorful.

i found the kitties trying to share a tiny box.
must get them some beds for the winter!

first meal at an nhau, the long-waited new vietnamese on bedford.
the food was decent, the beef bún and the pho both.
except they were too pricey for the portion, and compared to chinatown.
unless i have a dire need for a bowl of pho, i will be defaulting with the bahn mi shop next door for my bún as well as the drinks.

birthday dinner at yokocho.

octopus sashimi (which wasn't raw, but still good).

yakitori skewers of beef tongue, chicken hearts, and duck w/scallions.

one of the best unagi-don (grilled eel bowl) we've had.

and spicy tuna sashimi & grilled yellow tail collar <3 br="">
then for some dessert a couple doors down at cha-an:

got two of my favorites, zenzai (top) and black sesame creme brulee (bottomw two).
that black sesame creme brulee might be my favoritest dessert - not too sweet, nutty, earthy, perfect with the ice cream & the crisp topping it.

breakfast at cafe mogador early in the morning.
their food is always good - halumi eggs, my favorite, alongside long espresso.
one of my first coffees in a while that kept me up all night!

i also went to see my friend aya's installation in a display window space at macy's herald square. they're amazing, please go see if you're in NYC!

breakfast at a diner near by.
classic overeasy eggs & sausage with pancakes (good),
and my waffle & fruit with an overabundance of whipped cream (not so good).

kitties love the styrofoam insert from our AC box.
definitely more than we do, for sure.

second meal back on my bike!
random trial dinner at the new japanese joint, sui ren.
2 for 1 sapporo, chinese style pork bun,
yaki onigiri with spicy cod roe, duck ramen,
and squid okonomiyaki.

the decor kind of put us off in the beginning, because it looked super fancy,
though very tastefully done.
maybe i'll try their yakitori menu next time.

i had a head injury from a bike accident last sunday
(with ER/ICU/mini-amnesia in suit),
and spent this whole last week recovering. :/

so my first meal out on my bike was tonight!
veggie burger & beef burger at gpt coffee house.
happy labor day!
