You can build your own sandwich, too, and substitute low-carb options for bread. There are salads as well. With a five-star Yelp rating out seven reviews, Irving Subs has been getting positive attention. Yelper Kenny L., who reviewed Irving Subs on July 7, wrote, “Irving Subs recently opened in a small hole-in-a-wall setting nestled in the heart of Chinatown. There’s not too much when it comes to seating here, but the sandwiches here are worth it!” Yelper Gerald C. noted, “I’ve been a customer of their Irving Street location for the past three-or-so years. Same fresh ingredients and great bread here. I was in the neighborhood and had to stop by for my usual. I don’t live in Chinatown, but I’m glad I have the option to pick up my favorite sandwich when I find myself out here.” Irving Subs is open from 11 a.m.–7:30 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m.–7:30 p.m. on weekends.

There’s also a breakfast sandwich, bagels, and coffee from Ritual, as well as hot chocolate. With a five-star rating out of 29 reviews on Yelp, Salty’s has been getting positive attention. Yelper Carolyn I., who reviewed Salty’s on July 11, wrote, “A sweet little family-run coffee shop. Every time I stop in, I’m greeted with a warm smile, fun conversation, and overall superb customer service. Their espresso drinks are top-notch.” Yelper Adriana A. noted, “A hidden gem, small in size but big in flavor! We were walking by and the aroma of the coffee was so enticing that we had to have some. Once inside, the smell of fresh bread and pastries was too tempting to resist.” Salty’s is open from 7 a.m.–4 p.m. on Monday-Saturday. (It’s closed on Sunda The Boys’ Deli 315 Montgomery St., Suite E, Financial District The Boys’ Deli is a breakfast and brunch spot, offering sandwiches and soups.

Eat Art. Live Well.

In the Middle East, flatbread – known as pita – was made by mixing together flour and water, then letting the dough sit out to gather yeasts from the air. When the dough showed signs of life with little air bubbles forming and popping, the pita was then baked at a high temperature, causing the […]

I don’t have the guts to declare one place with the best hummus. I will decidedly write, though, that I eat a lot of hummus, and taste test it the way some do with wines, (albeit a lot cheaper). And, I will argue that Hummus Yossef, from Pardes Hanna Karkur–and now with some locations in […]

Somewhat like a modified Cole slaw, the flavors really come together, with the nutty tahini binding together the tangy sauerkraut and the garlicky, herby pesto. Whiz together the pesto by blending herbs (basil, cilantro, mint, etc) with garlic, oil, and nuts (e.g. almonds). Ingredients: Sauerkraut Basil Tahini Directions: Spoon sauerkraut into a bowl. Spread pesto […]

July 23, 2019 at 03:00AM by CWC Hot take: The Mediterranean diet is basically Taylor Swift circa “You Belong With Me.” Trendy eating plans like keto are the short skirt-wearing cheer captains in this scenario, while the Med diet is definitely wearing t-shirts and sitting in the bleachers. It’s been here all along, and (this […]

Never Not Hungry

Here’s a different take on the classic overnight cinnamon roll that leans slightly savory with flavors like tahini, sesame seeds and flaky salt.  Not too savory that you think you’re eating a dinner roll (c’mon, they’re still cinnamon rolls!) but just enough to cut through the rich sweetness that cinnamon rolls normally inhabit.I love working […]
