This was among the more delicious treats of the past few days: a Bloody Mary Oyster at Connie and Ted’s. (And if you go, be sure to try the fried clam bellies, which are absolutely irresistible.)
Nagoya-style ramen at Anzutei, downtown on Spring Street. I haven’t had this style of ramen before, and I was completely seduced by the clean freshness of the broth, and the charred deliciousness of the pork.
This doesn’t look like any tripe you’ve ever seen – and it doesn’t taste like any tripe you’ve ever eaten. It is spectacular: tripe that’s been cooked four different ways, until it turns into the tastiest, tenderest, most delicious piece of meat you’ve ever encountered. At the new Moruno in the Farmer’s Market. Try it!!
Lardo pizzetta at Pizzeria Mozza. This lily is gilded with guanciale. Need I say more?
And yesterday, at the Hollywood Farmer’s Market, as I struggled with bags filled with Oro Blanco grapefruits, puntarelle, tiny potatoes, kishu tangerines and loaves of bread, I ran into a friend pushing this wonderful folding cart. It’s made by Clax, she swears by it, and I absolutely covet it.
