From Montreal, food to take back to the US!
Requires shopping the morning of the day before as well as a late night run on Metro, Bixi, Bus. Primarily for Kouign Amann pastry, Schwartz's smoked meat sandwich, St Viateur Bagels, and croissants from almost any place.
Sana Restaurant, basement at 1175A Crescent St, Montreal. Good Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi food. Veg and non-veg.
Picture shows haleem with one naan. Enough for two naans so for two people, or one very hungry person. Very good.
Chicken Parm Sandwich, A+! Tangy tomato sauce, and hot peppers for occasional kick.
4354 Wellington St, Verdun, Montreal
Did the entire Mont Royal trail! Finally after decades of avoiding it. Electric Bixi bike, so finally doable!3
Bahari Estiatorio, 31-14 Broadway, Astoria, NY. Authentic Greek food, popular restaurant.
Fantastic fish fillet, lemon potatoes, rice. Lunch special.
And cold mashed potatoes spread with fluffy caviar (!).
July 4th Macy's Fireworks viewed from Brooklyn Kent Ave and 12th and 13th Streets.4
Nice day at Coney Island. Nathan's hotdog (with sauteed onions & mustard). Fries shown are chili cheese (but regular fries much better!). And Coney Island beach looks great on a hot day. Also nice to have many restrooms in area (unlike other parts of NYC!).2
Banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery. NYC Amtrak Penn Station. Take one when visiting someone or going home! Yummy!
Xian Foods, Woodside.
N1 is the Spicy Cumin Lamb with hand pulled (ripped?!) noodles. Spicy, tasty! For take home, cumin lamb burgers (but which I forgot and left on subway train 🙁 )
