A Look At Trinidad & Tobago Cart’s Stew Chicken With Peas & Rice

It’s not often the starch is the star of the show at lunch time, but that’s what I found when getting one of the mini meals at the Trinidad & Tobago cart on Whitehall (btw. Bridge & Pearl). The cart has stayed in its regular spot despite the fact that many office buildings in the area are not open. Nio’s Trinidad Roti truck has started parking up Whitehall St. across from the Bowling Green subway station, but the cart drew me to it with a shorter line and promise of stew chicken.

The $7 Pasta Lunch At Tre Sorelle Is A Good Call

Around the corner from Sole di Capri (aka, Capri Caffe), there is another source of cheap lunchtime pasta called Tre Sorelle. Based on the number of people I saw coming and going at prime lunch time, this place is popular with office workers and people such as myself taking their food to go for a little desk dining. This could be because of the extensive lunch menu that includes personal size brick oven pizzas, pastas and platters of Italian standbys for $10 or less. Perhaps the best deal on the menu is the pasta of which you can choose from five varieties for $6.95 which is a good price for this area.

Vegetarian Or Not, You Need To Check Out Nish Nush’s Standout Falafel

I’m a little bit late in trying out the new source of falafel in Tribeca, Nish Nush, on the corner of Reade St. and Church. After reading one glowing review, and walking by and seeing indeed how nice this shop looked, curiosity got the best of me and I wanted to know if it was true that this place was serving falafel that could be compared with Taim‘s. After eating there once, I’m mentally kicking myself for waiting more than a couple of days to check this place out.
