Oh! You again! Well, you obviously know the drill: I’m here to canvas the food blogs, so you don’t have to. A few highlights this week:


The photo above was taken at Kang Suh a week ago. I have no idea what we ordered or what we ate, since I have the great good fortune of having a Korean friend who is willing to schlep her gringo friends around K-Town. All I know is, it was fantastic.

The Siftster may have announced that he is moving on to greener pastures, but he’s still slinging restaurant reviews. The latest on the chopping block? Coppelia and Miss Lily’s. The former gets one star and the latter a “satisfactory.” Don’t expect to imbibe at Coppelia; their liquor license hasn’t come through. At Miss Lily’s, the jerk chicken and coconut cake will serve you well.

Danny at Food in Mouth is relieved to find a serious lunch deal in the way of a $4 chicken sandwich from Cafe Zaiya, while Donny from Eat to Blog enjoyed “cosmically delicious” fried chicken and awesome cornbread at the Brooklyn Star.

If you’re looking to make the most of our last tomatoes, consider this recipe from Sassy Radish: slow roasted tomatoes. Smitten Kitchen also does a very similar version, but the process is the same: low, slow heat for several hours does wonders. Give it a shot (if you feel like cooking).

The boys at Immaculate Infatuation check out Tenpenny, in Midtown East, and give it two solid thumbs up – ideal for the pastas (and really mostly if you’re forced to forage for dinner in Midtown).

The Feisty Foodie has the rundown on Madison Square Eats, my tummy’s personal Candyland. If you are in the neighborhood, make time for it. Don’t miss Roberta’s or Red Hook Lobster Pound, or Robicelli’s…..

Lastly, if you would like to  invent celebrate your German heritage, Gothamist has the rundown on where to get rowdy for Oktoberfest. Plan accordingly.
