Guardian UK: El Sabroso is a 9/10 (and better than Fette Sau!)
So, about three weeks ago I took Benji Lanyado, a Travel writer for the Guardian UK, to El Sabroso, the latin lunch counter hidden inside a freight elevator hallway on 37th St. btw. 7+8th. He told me he was interested in writing about Midtown Lunch for his “Meet the Bloggers” series, and wanted to check out one of my favorite places to eat. Unbeknownst to me, it was a blogger competition- and El Sabroso won!!! He gave it a 9/10, calling it “what foodie blog content is all about – really good food with a cultural angle, off the beaten track, and with a quirky situational twist. ”
Amanda from Eater took him to the ultra hip (and what I would have picked as the hands down favorite) Fette Sau in Brooklyn & Josh from Grub St. took him to a generic NYC Deli near the NY Magazine offices- but in fairness to the other “competitors”, I didn’t know it was a competition- so they probably didn’t either. But who cares! Midtown never wins shit, so I’m taking it.
The dishes that won it for El Sabroso, after the jump…
Benji’s Roast Chicken
My lamb stew
Always delicious, and only $6. How can you beat it? That’s right. You can’t.
