Best Dishes in a Local Restaurant
When you decide to visit a new city, food is often a primary consideration. It can be the determining factor as to where you’ll spend your precious vacation dollars. Fortunately, there are a few standout dishes to sample when you’re in town. Whether you’re looking for the latest and greatest in the culinary world or simply want to test your palate against the locals, here’s our list of the best.
The “big tray” is a classic Chinese dish featuring broad homemade wheat noodles and a fiery red broth. Among other things, it’s worth noting that it’s a regional specialty. Although popular in China and Henan, the dish actually originated in Fujianese lands. That said, it’s no longer the exclusive domain of Asian eateries. In New York City, it’s a local favorite. If you’re looking for a taste of the good life, try the restaurant’s late-night menu, which runs from 11pm to 12am.
Another oft-told restaurant aficionado’s tip of the hat goes to the “Magic Spoon,” a dish that uses a special type of ice cream to create a dessert so rich it might as well be liquid gold. But the real reason to try this dish isn’t just because you’ll be slurping down a calorie-free treat. After all, if you’re looking for something to do while you’re waiting to be seated, there’s nothing better than a dessert that takes your mind off the mundane.
And while the “Magic Spoon” isn’t the most interesting culinary experience you’ll find in the city, it’s a fun dish to eat. Unlike the other entrees, you can order this savory treat as a standalone meal or a cocktail. Despite its small size, it’s a dish that will impress your friends, and you’ll be sure to leave with a smile.
While it may have been conceived as a dessert, the “Magic Spoon” also serves as the star of the show. Besides, what’s a dessert without wine? Fortunately, the beverage options at this New York hot spot run the gamut. From an expertly crafted red blend made in Sonoita, Arizona to a gin and tonic, this restaurant’s wine list is as comprehensive as its food and drink offerings.
