Beautiful pics @J_L. :slight_smile:

I still can’t believe you only had 1 Carabinero Prawn. :stuck_out_tongue: :wink:

For the good of the many… (witness angelic beams of divine light descend upon me from the heavens as I proclaim this selfless act of magnamity)

That, and I was gonna have a second lunch right afterwards at Sea Salt:

Good clams. Great hush puppies. Extraordinary cole slaw (strangely, the one thing I cannot stop thinking about in this meal)


#166

Do you wanna see what I had for lunch #3?


#167

Ah that explains it! :slight_smile: 3 Lunches! :open_mouth: :grin:


#168

Lunch #3: Jade noodles, Sapp Coffee House… The good folks at Sapp have really upped their game with this dish. This is THE BEST jade noodle presentation I’ve ever had here - I dare say as good as the Luv2Eat version now. The complexity in this bowl is startling. Sour notes, mixing with the slightly smoky duck, the fluffiness of the delicate crab meat, the gentle yet necessary kick of the chili, the crunch of the greens, all tempered by the Q of the delicious green noodles. All for $8.95.

That’s a fine bang-bang-bang. Btw how much did they charge for the carabinero?


#170

Carabinero al carbon con arroz negro: $15 per serving. Very reasonable. The rice (when paired with the prawn) tastes better than most paellas in this town.


#171

Not bad at all. NYC restaurants have been known to charge $20 each, shrimp only.


#172

MomoFUK that noise!


#173

I think good cole slaw can be like good potato salad. I still dream about the potato salad got for me, say, 20 yrs ago from some random deli in Queens. ::sigh::

I’m so annoyed they didn’t have the prawn when I was there last wk!!! Argh. I’ve never had one, and it looks so delicious (and I love arroz negro).


#174

Thanks for the reminder that holbox is so delicious. Stopped in before the laker game.

Had the carabinero prawn with arroz negro, uni and yellowtail ceviche (very generous with the uni), and octopus in sugo taco. If you haven’t been find some time to go now!
