Best way to enjoy the #BigAppleBBQ? 1. Buy a fast pass. 2. Get there at 11am. 3. Bring a blanket and situate yourself on the lawn, in the shade. 4. Get this beef brisket and sausage combo from Salt Lick BBQ. Spicy sauce and meats are to DIE for. Tips courtesy of @sandwichsurprise

In the mood for spice? How about some grilled blowfish? Or beef ribs in massaman curry? Drawn to fish sauce or shrimp paste? If so, Uncle Boons is for you. And it certainly was for me. If Chicken pad thai is your favorite #thai dish, best to steer clear.  (at Uncle Boons)

I have died and gone to #Korean heaven. Well at least I assume they would serve this delicious #shortrib, buttercup squash and rice cake casserole there (aka Spicy Galbi Jjim). I better start praying to Korean Jesus. 🙏 (at Cho Dang Gol)

CALIMARI TIPS

Reading an issue of Glamour filled with tips, tricks, dos, don’ts, how-tos, etc. got me thinking… I should do the same for dining topics. So here is my inaugural set of Calimari Tips. We’ll keep them nice & short in 3’s.

1. DO ask for a corner table when the hostess tries to seat you in the middle of the dining room. Most of the time, it’s available. 

2. DON’T settle for a steak that’s not cooked to your liking. It’s ok to send that steak back when it’s under- or over- cooked. 

3. DO ask questions about the menu. It’s a waiter’s job to know every ingredient in the dish and how it’s prepared.
