UPDATED METS - SHEA RECOMMENDATIONS
I need help expanding my repertiore for the upcoming NLCS. Historically, we have gone to:
the Old Pearsons
Grano de Oro (closed now, its a tapas place)
Spicy and Tasty
Any recommendations would be helpful. Specifically, for tonight, though, we need some recommendations suitable for someone with a "touchy stomach". Unfortunately, I had been thinking Arunee or Sripriphai but need to resort to a milder "Plan B" (he is that good of a friend)...... Thanks
Srip is closed on Wednesday anyway. Esquina Criolla is another Argie spot at Junction and Corona ave. Tac Coatzinga is number one for mexican in the area and I like Rincon Criolla more then El Sitio. Mina and Kababbish are superior to Jackson Diner. You could hit Leo's if you go really early as they close at 5:00. Wednesday is meatballs. Don't forget to finish at Lemon Ice King. Let's Go Met's.
Manghal Kebab in Sunnyside;
JC & Family for chilean sandwiches - I was there on Monday and was glad to see that their Brazilian steam table got an upgrade and was fresher and tastier than it used to.
re: abu applesauce
That would be a slow curve for a strike out. There's nothing I'm aware of in that category. IF you're driving that pick up some brews and tailgate carefully. I've known cops to actually give tickets (violations) to people with open containers of alcoholic bevs. If you're taking the 7 train, you can hop off in Woodside / 61st St. and hit a bar.
StuartLaFonda - thanks again for your advice. On the day of the rainout, we hit the old standard, La Portena, for steaks hanging off the plate and fries. Then, Spicy and Tasty - I am still dreaming of the Spicy Pork from the Szechuan specialties page as I endure the nightmare of Billy Wagner. Thinking about Tac Coatzinga for Wednesday - - LETS GO METS!
7th inning, I have snuck into field box seats, and the leo's hero i had pre-game is long gone--I hit the sausage stand--they are out of buns. I haggle the guy and end up with two sausages and all the pepper and onions I can scrape. I then go straight to nathans hot dog stand and with a sorry face, beg the guy for a hot dog bun, and get two buns for my two sausages--what a great night...until billy came in....
(Shea sausage is too small for the bread, or the bread is too big and overwhelming--all you taste is bread--shea sausage in hot dog bun, at a two for one price....the winner!!!)
Good point. I guess I had confidence we would still come back--until Billy showed up. Should have got the fries too.
