Maracuja…cheese steak heaven and then some!

I love Maracuja..
Best friggin cheese steaks I’ve ever had..
Also they have Lagunitas IPA which has helped me be hungover so many times..
Charlie and Connie are the owner operators.. They rule..
There’s also an amazing back yard..
Come here and drink and eat or regret living…

I Am Full Of Crepe… And Its Glorious!!!

OK, that title is lame but the restaurant Pates et Traditions is fucking Glorious!!! Traditional Nice food that’s really nice… (I think i read that one in some kind of Martha Stuart Magazine…)

The Shrimp Curry Crepe.. they all come with salad so you wont feel fat.. until after desert...

I have been eating at Pates et Traditions for about two years now… I try to eat there once a week as it ain’t expensive at all and its just really good..

Pates et Traditions is small but cosy.. right on the corner of Havemeyer and N 6 St… Only 2 blocks away from my studio.. it can get pretty crowded on the weekends but has outside seating in the warmer months… Which is pretty damn rad for Brunch in the summer…

The menu consists of a whole bunch of savory crepes, some rather large salads, some really good pastas such as the mustard chicken (one of my favorites) and of course sweet crepes..

Chocolate crepe with Vanilla ice cream.. i didnt feel to fat after.. i'll try harder next time..

Also try the la socca for an appetizer.. I get that every time… chickpeas squished down to a paste then pan fried or something like that.. its veggie but it tastes like the breading of a really good Wiener Schnitzel..which is the best part..

They have two French beers that i had never had before.. both worth trying… I usually chow down on a bunch Pinot Noir when i eat there in the winter… like last night… keeps the blood warm.. or at least that’s my excuse…

Everyone should go and eat here.. unless you’re Vegan.. then i think you are shit out of luck on this one..  Lots of cheese.. and butter..

I did this... just in case you were wondering...

The Best Damned Pizza…!!!!!!
Best damned pizza... the white with pepperoni added and a slice of the grandma

Best damned pizza... the white with pepperoni added and a slice of the grandma

The best damned pizza in the hood….

I eat here a lot more than I should…  Usually I only eat pizza when i am broke but since Best Pizza opened last whenever it was, i been eatin pizza all the damn time…

Something to do with the heat of the oven gets the bottom perfect.. Frank told me how once but i can't remember the details...

It’s Veggie friendly as you have to order meat on the slice.. Bacon or Pepperoni… both from some fancy meat spot like the Meat Hook on Meeker…

Best makes only 4 pizzas… Grandma, White, plain, and Veggie… All amazing.. All made in the over 100 year old Brick oven…

100 years old and still cooking...

I had tattooed Frank, one of the owners, years ago at the Hope St Saved… Here’s what we are working on now…

Food… I like that shit.. Its good stuff… Here is Where to Get Some

I must admit that i had a whole essay written earlier about where to eat and how awesome i was and how you all should listen to the genius that spews from my finger tips..

But then that fucking piece of shit phone ap WordPress crashed and i lost the whole muther fucking thing…  I almost smashed my new iPhone… i am still doing deep breaths…

Counting backwards…

Well whatever.. fucking technology..

I’ll just get on with it…

When you are in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and you want a good quick place to eat, one spot i like to eat at is M Noodle… Its Chinese… a satellite of M Shanghai… also Chinese..

I eat at M Noodle cus… well,  its pretty tasty… it ain’t that much in terms of cash.. and its quick.. also it’s got a nice small, fairly quiet atmosphere… a walk in spot..

I have found a meal here that i eat as its the right size so i don’t get food coma… I can’t work under the influence of food coma…  I get real slow… not so good for the sucker in the chair…

I got the sesame pancake with the Veggie dumpling soup.. jasmine tea..(I ate most of the pancake)...i was hungry..

I get the Vegetable dumpling soup… it digests well and i can go back to work afterwards… sometimes when i am feeling a bit masochistic, I’ll throw in a sesame or scallion pancake of some kind…  (I usually eat veggie for lunch as i find it does avoid the deadly food coma.. M Noodle has a decent amount of veggie stuff… not sure about Vegan.. never really asked what was in the broth…)

I cant remember the address, but it’s on Metropolitan between Union and Lorimer… right near that paint supply place over there.. across from the Ace Hardware…

I have had a few other things from the menu.. it was all good… if you want a full sit down Chinese meal and you’re too lazy to head into Chinatown, M Shanghai is good too… over on Grand St..  btw Havemeyer and Roebling….. good salt n pepper shrimp… i rocked the beef with asparagus there last time and it was pretty darn good…

Both places deliver..

Here’s M Noodle website..
