I'm honestly currently eating my tears, because I, like the doofberry I am, thought I could overcome writer's block with my ungodly love of food.
Turns out, I can't. And I'm just sitting here, listening to Lacrimosa because it's that time of the year, and looking like this:
|Playing either Taps, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, or Darude - Sandstorm|
So I'm going to provide you readers with a list of places with cheap & delicious food. Wave your handkerchief with your under-exercised noodle arms, weary and heartbroken, at those final papers, projects, and tests as if they're riding a train into the English countryside. I know you can't cook anymore; those ingredients, pots, pans, and utensils have become but metaphors of this futile existence we are living. Ladies and gentlemen, it's time...to...
- Fisherman's Cove (2147 Nostrand Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11210): we're going to start close and slowly branch ourselves out, okay? Move your fellow noodle legs to this haven of jerk chicken, cabbage, mac & cheese, and plantains. Just DO IT. Don't let your dreams be dreams.
- Dun-Well Doughnuts (222 Montrose Ave Brooklyn, NY 11206): best donuts to ever donut. And they're vegan, too!
- Breads Bakery(18 E 16th St, New York, NY 10003): Inhale the chocolate rugelach.
- Grill 21 (346 E 21st St, New York, NY 10010): Cute, small restaurant for some awesome Filipino home cooking!
- Sal, Kris & Charlie's Deli (33-12 23rd Ave, Astoria, NY 11105): Sandwiches the size of your shortest friend! Da Bomb is da bomb and The Italian is, too.
- Levain Bakery (167 W 74th St, New York, NY 10023): The best chocolate chip cookies in the city. Crispy, huge, and (dare I say) moist. $4 a piece, but they're the size of four cookies, so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
- Flor de Mayo (484 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10024): A Peruvian-Chinese plates that gives you the diner-ish comfort you need.
- For the Westchester/Yonkers/adventurous people (because I know there's at least one!), Lefteris Gyro in Tarrytown is proof of a higher power.
Happy finals, everyone.
Love you all,
