Friday, August 17, 2007

About a year ago, I was very excited to announce that my secret Korean Grandma shop had re-opened. Well, I tried ordering for delivery and the number was disconnected. I had to walk by and see if it was true and yes, it’s closed!!! What sadness =(


Wednesday, August 15, 2007

My friend Sheryl gathered a small group of us for a few drinks in honor of Wymen’s birthday. She chose this chill place in Chelsea called Tillman’s Tillman’s, styled after an old school Harlem speakeasy.

Soup Man

Monday, August 13, 2007

I wanted soup on Fri since it was pretty cold and rainy. I decided to try the Soup Man Soup Man, 1 block from my office, and as soon as I noticed the prices, I wished it wasn’t raining so I could motivate myself to walk further for lunch. I resorted to a cup size […]

Good Concept, Failed

Friday, August 10, 2007

La Mela has a Lunch Special

Friday, August 3, 2007

My friends at Signature Bank told me about the $8 lunch special at La Mela La Mela . They don’t have the lunch special on the menu so I don’t know how people would know about it. Everyone else in the restaurant seemed to be eating off the regular menu. It’s a choice of Eggplant […]

Herr’s Whole Grain Pretzel Sticks

Wednesday, August 1, 2007
