    Bring to Light NYC

    There are time where I feel extremely lazy – especially when it’s pouring outside. Despite the fact that I procrastinated the whole day yesterday (it’s just so easy when the weather is dreary), I managed to go across the East River with Heidi, Alby, and Stefan to the Bring to Light Festival in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The festival was supposed to start at six. But it was literally pouring outside. The walk from the L-train was very wet, but the closer we got to the event, the rain waned. Very few of the exhibits were set up when we got there so after a quick browse of the area (and a…

    H is for Hungarian

    Whoops. I’m a little behind on my blog posts. I got a little lazy last week. We’re also a little behind on our Ethnic Food Nights since  two weeks before, we ended up skipping G for German because we could not find an affordable restaurant, we had Thanksgiving dinner this past Sunday as a group (post to come some time this week), and this weekend we’ll all be gone for Thanksgiving. Anyways, H is for Hungarian at Andre’s Cafe is probably my favorite. I had veal goulash with nokedli, which was some kind of noodle. I was very happy that Patrick, the Hungarian in the group, had picked it out…

    F is for Filipino

    Not too many pictures from the Filipino night. Basically, I brought home a lot of food on Saturday night. I thought it would be a lot more authentic instead of going out to eat at some mediocre and overpriced restaurant in Manhattan. Filipino dishes I brought: giniling, chicken adobo, beef steak, and palabok. Anne in particular really enjoyed it. On Sunday she ended up researching everything Filipino on Wikipedia from desserts to media/entertainment. We both found out that there is a decent Filipino restaurant four blocks away from the dorm. Anne really wants to try some halo halo. I will definitely check this place out soon, just so I am…

    E is for English

    E is for English was held at A Salt & Battery in the West Village. Traditional English fish and chips. I thought it was pretty good, but others in the group didn’t enjoy it as much. For fish and chips, it was pretty expensive. Six dollars for a piece of fried pollock and four dollars for chips. But it is relatively cheap compared to our other ethnic food restaurants. The place was small, so it wasn’t good for a big group. Eventually, I would like to try other English food… maybe from Tea and Sympathy.

    D is for Dutch

    I haven’t posted one of these in a while. Columbus Weekend was a little bit crazy. Everyone was going away so we decided to postpone D for Dutch by a week. We finally went this past weekend for brunch. The main reason we went for brunch this time around because of the pricing. D was a bit harder to find and the only Dutch place we found, Vandaag, was in the East Village. It’s a pretty close distance to where we dorm so it was pretty easy to get there.
