Things I love about Brooklyn
I was inspired by a recent post to start a new thread on food-related places that I love in Brooklyn. I'm always up for new restaurants, bakeries, etc., so please share yours!
I love Sahadis.
I love Tanoreen.
I love the fact that you can walk through Sunset Park and do compare dumplings from five different places then walk a few more blocks and do the same with tacos.
I love Best Buy Liquors down at Coney Island- great selection, great prices.
I love the Red Hook ballfields. (Everything except the crowds- but I go early)
I love sandwiches from DeFontes.
I love the ever-changing and always interesting selections at NYC Icy.
These are really just the tip of the iceberg... but they all make me really happy.

Oops. you missed DiFara. And I would add Tedone Latticini. Both are not long for this world.

Lucali. (and Difara, of course)
Sunny's Bar in Red Hook.
Yunnan Flavor Snacks -- the food, of course, but I also love watching the woman spoon precise amounts of her various ingredients into the takeout container to create that vinegary, spicy magic. She must do it hundreds of times a day but she always seems like she's paying careful attention to what she's doing.
575 Henry St, Brooklyn, NY 11231

Re Best Buy- Part of the appeal is just the size- it's huge, which permits an inventory and selection that few stores in the area can match. I'm not super knowledgeable about wines, but I think that their French and American selections are especially strong, and I find that most things are priced about 10-20% lower than I'm used to seeing in other places. And it's in Coney Island to boot. :)
