yeah, the other time i had it, i was fine. and i used to eat smith st zaytoons on a weekly basis when i lived over there and never had a problem.

bell_labs, Thursday, 1 November 2007 21:11 (eleven years ago) link

i WILL eat it again. though i may avoid ground lamb stuff.

bell_labs, Thursday, 1 November 2007 21:17 (eleven years ago) link

that is the same dish me & shannon split

dmr, Thursday, 1 November 2007 21:19 (eleven years ago) link

ground lamb platter

dmr, Thursday, 1 November 2007 21:19 (eleven years ago) link

it was tasty :(

25% chance of spending a night in stomach hell... I LIKE THOSE ODDS

I've eaten smith st. zaytoons so much that one of the guys who used to work there bought me a drink at Boat once. That was weird. Anyway, it never made me sick, though when I got the chicken kebab platter for delivery it was sometimes undercooked. That's pretty gross. Their lentil soup is AWESOME, so thick you can eat it with a fork.

The Cup sucks, but Cafe Bar has some ok stuff.

yeah we went two weekends ago for schwarma brunch. really good. i've forgiven them for my smith st food poisoning of years ago. this place is much better than olive vine.

sanskrit, Thursday, 1 November 2007 21:30 (eleven years ago) link

this place is much better than olive vine.

^^^ OTM x1000

ian, Thursday, 1 November 2007 21:34 (eleven years ago) link

Yes. The Olive Vine on 6th ave or whereve is the WORST. The place on Dekalb is pretty good for some things, as is Beduin Tent on Atlantic, who make this insane Merguez.

where does one eat near Lorimer/Metrop at 9 on a Sat night that isn't crowded, or the Kellogg Diner?

Dr Morbius, Friday, 2 November 2007 15:00 (eleven years ago) link

Kinara of Park Slope, mentioned here in years gone by, closing at month's end, I was told yesterday. Please holler for where I should get my Indian takeout off the F or Q in Brooklyn henceforth.

you're gonna need a new thread to discuss Brooklyn eat spots without my involvement.

dan selzer, Tuesday, 17 July 2018 19:45 (one year ago) link

lol

although we did go to Chicha in Bushwick and C.lo Cafe in east williamsburg last week and despite the former's beautiful design and more innovative/interesting menu, found C.lo Cafe shockingly delicious for what seems like a pretty humble under the radar place. Don't sleep.

Now can we talk about Queens please?

dan selzer, Tuesday, 17 July 2018 23:41 (one year ago) link

when i move dere

the ignatius rock of ignorance (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 19 July 2018 14:07 (one year ago) link

i thought the food at chicha was comically bad but the drinks were very good. lotta instagram ass people in there for sure.

adam, Thursday, 19 July 2018 14:40 (one year ago) link

Chimu is still open! Amazed.

Yerac, Thursday, 19 July 2018 14:47 (one year ago) link

I liked my dish at Chicha by wife was underwhelmed. C.Lo was better!

dan selzer, Thursday, 19 July 2018 16:34 (one year ago) link

I just re-read this entire thread. I am sad my only contribution was to bitch about accidentally getting mashed potatos on my pizza. A higher end sushi joint opened up kind of near my place. It's getting good reviews and I need to overcome my hesitations about sushi chefs who are not asian. https://www.gaijinny.com/

Yerac, Thursday, 19 July 2018 16:44 (one year ago) link

I dunno about paying those prices in Astoria too. But I guess I pay a lot for good grilled octopus there.
