Best Thing I Ever Ate (Well some of them)
I love the Culinary adventures that New York offers the Palate. Here are some of mine and yes they are also the favorites of some Celebrity Chefs.
1. Mirchi Ka Salan: Very Hot and Spicy but every bite so 'moorish' - A must-try for heat seekers.
2. Tandoor-Grilled Lamb Chops: Every bite was Heaven
1. Watermelon Pickle and Crispy Pork: Incredible
2. Watermelon Drink with Kiffir Lime: I ordered three of these as they were so addictive
These are some of my favorites and there are many more.
Share what some of your favorites are.
Good Eating to you.

I also enjoy the fish tacos at Mercadito and Toloache. Although NYC fish tacos probably can't compete with the best fish tacos in San Diego, Santa Barbara or Baja, the Toloache & Mercadito versions still make it on to my list of my favourite things to eat when I visit NYC. I also like the refrescos at Mercadito.
