Birmingham, MI - Shocked that it's Thai food again? I'm at least trying new things now, about time. This is Curry Noodles (sorry I don't have Thai name) from New Bankok Bistro. I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy the dish, but it turned out to be great. It is similar to Pad Thai, but instead of a peanut sauce, it's a curry sauce. However, it's still different from the traditional coconut curry dishes for some reason. When I was eating it, the flavor almost became ubiquitous, but when I started eating left overs later, I really enjoyed the flavor that I forgot when eating it the first time. This dish was served with lots of veggies and tofu. Enjoy!

Birmingham, MI - This is Nun Mun Hoy from New Bankok Bistro, one of my favorite Thai restaurants. This has to be one of my favorite dishes. I don't know what it is about the brown sauce dishes, but they are out of this world. This has tofu, mushrooms, green onions, broccoli, and some other veggies. What's nice about this restaurant is that you can order a dish vegetarian (just veggies) and then add tofu. Most places, if you ask for tofu, it's just the normal dish and tofu, minus all the veggies. Enjoy!

New York, NY - This is the breakfast of champions. Bagels, lox and cream cheese with a new dill pickle. This is from Russ's Daughters in East Village. There are lots of different types of lox you can get at this place. This one is belly lox. This is the saltiest kind you can get, but the most flavorful. The only thing to be aware of, afterwards, be prepared to feel dehydrated. It's well worth it! Enjoy!

New York, NY - This my friends is Tariaki Salmon, Ginger Salad, and Shashmi from the same Japanese restaurant. The salmon was cooked so well, it just basically fell apart when I started eating it. One of my favorite salad dressings is ginger dressing, so I almost wanted to ask for more of it! For the shashmi, well, you can never go wrong with sushi! Enjoy!

New York, NY - This is from the same Japanese restaurant as the seaweed salad. It's Unagi Sushi or Eel. Eel is one of the top favorites of my list for sushi. It's actually not raw, it's almost toasted or broiled, if you will. It is extremely good. On the plate is also some thinly cut cucumbers, pickled ginger (great to clean the pallet), seaweed, and thinly sliced radish. It's a great plate to have if you have the chance. Enjoy!

New York, NY - My first thought when it was served to me, was....what is that? It turned out to be a seaweed salad, which of course was great. It was only a side dish, but I wish I had more of it. I got this at a Japanese restaurant in East Village in Manhattan, sorry I don't remember the name of the place. It consisted of seaweed, carrots, and some kind of dressing that is of course the ingredient that makes the dish perfect. Therefore, if you're offered seaweed salad, don't turn it down, it is quite delicious. Enjoy.

New York, NY - This looks kind of crazy, but it's called Lamb Sedan, from an Indonesian restaurant. I wish I remembered what the place was called, all I know it was in East Village. Well, it was amazing. Amazing! I rarely eat lamb and after having this, will probably only have it in this dish. As you can see, it's Lam Skewers, marinated and cooked in this delicious peanut sauce. Try it, try it, try it, if you get a chance. Enjoy!

New York, NY - Are you ready carnivores? This obviously are ribs, but these are Kansas City Ribs from New York BBQ in Manhattan. I haven't had ribs so good and I actually haven't had ribs since then. I'm afraid that any other ribs are just not going to compare. My friend took me to this place before I flew out and it was a prefect going away lunch. It was prepared so well, the meat just fell off the bones and the sauce was so wonderfully tangy, that I had to keep lathering it on. If you're passing through NY, stop in and grab a bit, it's delicious! Enjoy.

New York, NY - The next few posts will be from my trip to New York. This is where I started taking pictures of my food and this was one of the first. I was pretty nervous, so I took a quick picture, which you can see, turned out to be pretty blurry. Sorry about that, I hope I've gotten better. This is a Malaysian dish that was very good. Man, I love Malaysian food. I don't remember the name of it, but it was a noodle dish with tofu, beansprouts, and green onions in a brown sweet sauce. If you get a chance to have some Malaysian food, TAKE IT! Enjoy!
