Mighty Quinn's

          I was walking through the East Village on a Friday night. There was a long line on 2nd ave. Curious to know what was going on, I asked one of the people on the line. He said, "I love the brisket, and Brontosaurus Rib!" So I stood on the lengthy line, and when I finally met the front, it was a cafeteria style setup.






The employees were taking orders chopping up the large pieces of ribs, chicken, and brisket. The infamous Brontosaurus rib was the size of a small textbook. I was a bit too intimidated to try it but I was overjoyed to see my brisket being cut. I moved down to an array of pickled vegetables, such as cabbage, peppers, and onions. I chose all of them.


          The brisket was so hearty, and succulent. I loved it! The barbecue sauce added an extra smokiness and sweetness to my dish. I wasn't a huge fan of the pickled vegetables by themselves. If I had gotten the bun, I think it would have been a great family of flavors.


          I also had the chance to taste the chicken wings. It was deep fried chicken tossed in hot sauce, and sprinkled with sesame seeds. The seeds complimented the crunch, and sweetness of the chicken.
   

I definitely recommend this place!

Oren's Daily Roast

If you are checking out the NYU campus, you should definitely stop by Oren's. I am a huge fan of the coffee.

The warm color tones and wooden furniture welcome you for a cup. As you wait in line, you are greeted with happy faces, and familiar "hellos." After getting your coffee or caffeinated beverage of any kind, the marble top tables and wooden chairs ask for you to sit and observe this campus. And if you are in the middle of student rush hour, you can feel the energy of stress and excitement all around.

My personal favorite of Oren's is the iced coffee with milk coupled with a cookie the size of my face. The coffee has a good balance of nutty, sweet, and bitter that always taste lovely with their chocolate chip cookie. I enjoy that the cookie isn't too sweet, and best of all its crunchy!

Umami Burger Restaurant

             I was welcomed into a modern and casual decor. The exposed brick, square shapes, and warm colors gave it a bold, but comfortable feel. We were quickly seated, and the waitress was very nice.
             Four spoons were brought to my table filled with different sauces. I am not sure of the names of the sauces but one was ketchup, and the others were a combination of spicy, smoky, and lightly flavored. 
              I was intrigued by the burger, fries, and soda combo. Since it was a place known for their burgers, I wanted to try a classic. The combination was rather inexpensive but the catch was that the chef choses your burger from the classics menu. I was completely torn between the surprise burger combination, and the truffle burger. It sounded very tantalizing from the description on the menu. The melty cheese, and truffles combining with the flavors of the burger. And I also loved the sound of the classics.
       I chose the truffle burger, and was very pleased with my decision. The saltiness, and creaminess danced well with the flavors of the burger. I would have to say that the burger was smaller than a regular burger place but it packs more flavor in the patty. And I had also ordered a side of fries. The fries were thin but there were a perfect mix of crunchy and soft. I overall loved this place!
