From this weekend I have some exceptional highlights and some cautionary tales…
I am a marketer’s dream – I’ll buy pretty much anything that says limited edition; it’s not a lifestyle I can really recommend, as both of these coffees were just terrible!
This coffee shop, on the other hand, was worth the hype.
Saltwater Cafe gave me a very tasty charcoal vanilla chai latte.
Other Lower East Side spots that redefine hypeworthy? Ice & Vice and Baohaus. I had an epic cup of Milk con Leche with goat milk cajeta and kaya jam.
And an Uncle Jesse Bao and a Spiceland Bao – fried tofu and spicy fried chicken with pickled cabbage, crushed peanuts, Taiwanese red sugar, and cilantro. Plus housemade lemonade.
Representing from the frozen section, Trader Joe’s scallion pancakes are damn good. With Sriracha on top and yellow bell pepper on the side.
And one night I cooked a great plate of Cheez-it crusted chicken tenders with homemade cole slaw.
P.S. CW Pencil Enterprise looks like what the inside of my soul looks like.
Hope everyone enjoys their week!
