Two more from one of my favorite Thai restaurants, Ugly Baby at 407 Smith Street in Carroll Gardens. Both of these seafood dishes were absolutely delicious.
Khoong Muk Kai Kem featuring shrimp (khoong), squid (muk), and salted egg yolk (kai kem) – assuming I’ve decoded the Thai correctly. I admit to being an avid fan of salted egg yolk in all its forms; here it serves to thicken the sauce and add texture as well as flavor to the seafood. An excellent dish.
Kang Hoy Bai Cha Plu. Mussels, betel leaves, and cha-om in “ugly red curry”. Cha-om are the gossamer leaves of the Acacia pennata tree which can be consumed either raw or cooked; the betel leaves are the larger pieces you see in the photo. This dish is a good example of why I like Ugly Baby so much; another winner.

A lot of work left to be done to become a (wing) king of Queens, but starting to break the mold and getting out there to try the amazing food in the borough. Dining at @addanyc was an awesome experience, including the tandoori chicken, butter chicken, and Junglee mas (among a ton of other things) check it out in #longislandcity
Am sooo over my bf😠! Why does he have to be so sfingi with his affection?
Sfingi, just in case you're wondering, are Sicilian choux puff-like pastry shells, either fried or baked, that are then filled with ricotta cream, and 🍊🍒dolled up like you see here. In 🗽NYC, you tend to see them in Italian bakeries during the weeks leading up to St. Joseph's Day, which happens to be today.
Now please keep in mind, I'm just a Jewish 🚶♀️girl who happens to enjoy sfingi. So if I'm a bit off on the specifics, forgive me. And happy St. Joseph's Day to all who are celebrating!
ps You might assume this Bronx bakeshop is located along the borough's famed epicenter of all things 🇮🇹Italian, Arthur Avenue. Alas, it's a trek from there, in Pelham Gardens. Absolutely worth a stop, though, for their sfingi and other 🍰goodies, should you happen to be in the area. #bronxbaby

⚡️ Donut Review # 38 .
🥊 Donut Battle Round 10 .

🏆 S’mores (9.5) .
🥈 Pretzel Leche (9.4)
💭 The excitement of early Sunday morning donuts got the best of me. Came in way too hot and dished out mid 9’s for two above average donuts. Could pull the “my head was still a little fuzzy from the night before” excuse. But I’ll play like a champ and own up to my mistake. Thank u, next.

Happy Taco Tuesday with this beautiful Baja style fish taco! Los Tacos No 1 is my fave taco place in the city (although Californians would probably still argue it’s not comparable to the west coast Mexican food scene but w/e I love it) and the fish tacos at their sister restaurant Los Mariscos are also really great. They’re crispy on the outside but soft and flaky on the inside with a nice tartness from the crema. Also got their seafood ceviche tostada, which had shrimp and octopus, and these two were surprisingly substantial enough to fill my tum tums. #nyc#chelsea#tacos#tacotuesday#fishtaco

Once again, they come in “Nut Flavors” 😏 English Toffee Nut 🥜 Thai Coconut NUT 🥥 & the most interesting of the 3, Mexican Jalapeño Nut 🇲🇽 My ranking of the three are as follows: Toffee Nut, Jalapeño Nut, then lastly the putrid & disappointing...Thai Coconut. 🙁 I really thought coconut would be delcious, but unfortunately it’s a weird flavor combination that shouldn’t be in an m&m 🥴 Toffee Nut was delicious & Jalapeno was just a slightly spicier peanut m&m 🔥 Have You Tried These!? What’s YOUR vote!? Comment Below! 😈
- Last Vote & Win M&M’s were Coffee Nut ☕️ Chili Nut 🌶 & Honey Nut 🍯 .... Coffee Nut was MY vote & the WINNER... it was a well deserved victory for Coffee Nut 🥰
