Sex on a plate/bun/napkin/hand/cup/bowl or things that make you go *insert homer slobber sound here*

Hello Manhattan people!

didnt have as much time to research this time so i am depending on some chowhounders

  1. For me "sex on a plate" would probably involve uni. I haven't tried a vast variety of preparations... here's one post about uni in NYC.

        um, you can crack a tooth on that...not a joke.

        porchetta sucks in my opinion...dry, small, overpriced, and tasteless.

        1. re: sam1

          Porchetta is a favorite and definitely not tasteless nor dry. I would agree that the crispy pork can sometimes be hard on the teeth, but the food is absolutely delicious. Wish the potato portion was bigger though...

              Love, love the pork bun with egg at Momofuku!

                I absolutely second this...each bite is eye-closingly heavenly

                  I think the pork bun at Momofuku Ssami s pretty overrated and just Ok.
