NYC Eats: New Wonjo Restaurant 원조

Open for 24 hours.  Service was good but they didn’t speak very good English so there were communication problems.  The banchan weren’t very remarkable (the radish used was the most fibrous part).  The main entrees were quite average.

Fried egg

순두부찌개(해물) Sundubu Jjigae
Spicy Soft Tofu Stew and Seafood
The egg was in a hot stone bowl, but it got burnt very quickly.  I felt the soup was rather bland and didn’t have a good amount of spice.

해물파전 Haemool Pajun
Just ordinary green onion pancake, that was very very greasy.

NYC Eats: 2nd Ave Deli

Very good solid Jewish food.  They make very good matzoh balls here.  It’s light and fluffy.  I do find it expensive here, they do pile up the meat for you, but I still think the portion was small.  I’m just comparing to other (equally good) Jewish delis that would give me loads of food (perhaps too much for one person) at the same price range.

Price range: $-$$$

Matzoh ball soup
with carrots and noodles
Excellent matzoh ball!  Soup was a bit overpowered by the taste of pasta, but it’s still good homemade soup (that’s not overly salty)

Center Cut Tongue sandwich
The rye bread was light and soft.  The tongue was well made.  It had a good distribution of fat and was very tender.

NYC Eats: Roxy Delicatessen

You won’t miss this place.  It’s right at the centre of Times Square with flashy lights on the outside.  Some food are ok, but most of them are mediocre and insanely overpriced (equivalent to daylight robbery in tourist area).  I only ended up here being caught up in a terrible bad weather condition and deserately needed a place to stay indoor.  Unless for extreme weather conditions, avoid this place.

Chocolate Croissant

Matzoh Ball Soup
The matzoh ball was fluffy, but it’s still much overpriced for a small bowl of soup.
Potato Latkes
Burnt and too crusty on the exterior.  Very expensive for such poorly made potato pancakes, and overpriced for such easy and simple recipe.
Pastrami sandwich
The pastrami was not right.  It tasted more like a hybrid of roast beef and corned beef, but on a very dry side.

NYC Eats: Carnegie Delicatessen

You may think with all the celebrity photos hung on the wall and a whole video with David Letterman might mean this is a good deli.  It’s just another tourist trap.  Food was bad and overpriced.  Their “world-famous” cheesecake looked burnt and overcooked on the outside to me.  The server’s attitude wasn’t aggressive, but they didn’t even smile.  You just don’t feel at ease whenever they pass by.

Pastrami omelette
With bagel and served with home fries
The fries were awful.  They were soggy and dry.  I saw another table returning all the home fries back to the kitchen.  The omlette was sitting in a puddle of grease.  The pastrami wasn’t too remarkable (quite dried out), I’ve had better ones in other deli (at least it’s better than the so called pastrami at Roxy).

Boston Eats: Neptune Oyster

It’s a very popular and crowded restaurant to be prepared to wait in line (I came at 11:20 before the store even opened and there was already a line).  Only got to try their hot lobster roll, and it was really good.  The soft toasted roll is seeped with the garlic butter (it was good, but maybe too much in my opinion) and topped with fresh lobster meat.  The thin crispy fries were also very good (and seasoned with pepper!).

My ratings: ❤❤❤❤
Price range: $$-$$$

I didn’t like their crackers served before the meal.  They were large pebbles of water crackers, so it was very hard, dry and cold.  It was probably better to eat with soup.
