Some of our favorite things from an exceptionally delicious weekend. We went to our favorite brewery and tried two restaurants that both easily made the cut for top five meals we’ve eaten in 2022.
Drinks at Evil Twin – we had a fall x candy x Wonderland line-up of beers.
Even More Hydra fruited sour / Fresh Feet & No Chicken citrus milkshake IPA / Fun Sized Halloween candy sour ale / Marshmallow is the New Milk Sugar marshmallow triple IPA / Back to the Pumpkin Patch pumpkin milkshake IPA. Also a Concrete Jungle fruit punch gose.
Dinner at Sobre Masa – a Mexican restaurant and tortilleria in Bushwick.
We shared seared queso fresco with fresh salsa.
And the best chips and guacamole we’ve ever tasted, with a variety of salsas.
I drank an El Pastor De Flavor – fat-washed tequilla, rum, roasted guava, masa, Vino de Agave, lemon balsam magnolia aperitif, and Mexican bitters.
And I ordered the oyster mushrooms with cracked corn, hoja santa, and guajillo mole. Plus housemade tortillas.
Housemade flan and tres leches for dessert.
Dinner at Potluck Club – a Cantonese American Restaurant on the Lower East Side. Everything was fantastic and the space was so cute!
A yuzu hard seltzer and a Chinese pale ale.
Spicy eggplants with fried shallot and cilantro.
Braised short rib with kobucha squash.
Rice roll noodles with oyster mushrooms, asparagus, chives, and hanger steak. <– best dish of the weekend!
