Food & Drink recommendations straight from the East Village, New York City

Satsko Now Serving Brunch

Well, it’s not really breaking news, but for the past few months Sake Bar Satsko (review) has been serving brunch on the weekends (not many people seem to know this).  I had a chance to go with some friends, so here’s the rundown.  The brunch menu at Satsko is a smaller version of their regular […]

2nd Annual Taste Of 7th St. Recap

I love my city, New York. I love my neighborhood, the East Village. And even more & more I love my street, 7th Street (before there’s an uproar, I do realize that some of the restaurants are not on 7th Street).  I reported earlier about the 2011 Taste of 7th St.  I went this year […]


Morning to Midnight, aka M2M, is a bright Asian supermarket packed full of lots of items that you would otherwise have to go to Chinatown or Koreatown to find.  Even if I really don’t need anything, I often find myself going into M2M just to browse the aisles and have a look around.  Before I […]

Vanessa’s Dumpling House

My brother has been trying to take me to Vanessa’s Dumpling House, one of his favorites,  for quite some time, but being the lazy git that I am, I always declined.  Finally, his pestering got the best of me & I’m so glad it did!  I had heard great things about Vanessa’s, particularly the dumplings […]

Satsko Eldridge Closes

Sake Bar Satsko‘s more grownup & fancy sister, Satsko Eldridge (245 Eldridge St. between Houston & Stanton Street), has closed.  I knew business there has been slow for quite some time, but on Saturday the rumors were confirmed via a friend & today Bowery Boogie reveals that it’s due to nonpayment of taxes.

Ten Ten

I hate to say it, but I don’t think I’m ever going to be able to trust my parents’ dining recommendations again. A few weeks ago they ate at Ten Ten (413 2nd Avenue at 24th Street) & raved about how nice they were & how good the meal was. We decided to order delivery […]

Food Parc

Way out of my normal stomping grounds & with possibly the shakiest camera in existence, I headed up to Food Parc (851 Avenue of the Americas at West 30th Street) for some late night food & drinks.  I had never been there before or even heard of it.  I was pleasantly surprised  to find a […]

Village Yokocho

It’s funny how a bit of misfortune can turn into a good thing.  I had hoped to take my Mom to Ippudo on 4th avenue for some ramen, but the place was packed to the gills, so we headed east & wound up eating at Village Yokocho.  Not ramen, but we ended up enjoying ourselves.


I recently went to Republic with my Mom for an early dinner.  I haven’t been there in a while, so I was really looking forward to the meal.  It was pretty empty, so we were seated immediately.  Normally I order the curried duck noodles (which are really tasty), but this time I decided to opt for […]
