Did you know that June 18 is #InternationalSushiDay? Celebrate in The Bronx with these ideas!
Keep it local. Today I met up with Brayan Feliz of wanderdot.co to talk about upcoming projects. Also an amazing chance to get plantains with everything.
Cheers! I had the chance to check out The Bronx Brewery this past week and taste the new Bronx Banner. I also had the chance to chat with Damian Brown, Head Brewer and Co-Founder of Bronx Brewery, to learn what The Bronx Brewery and Bronx Banner were all about.
So my brother’s birthday was this past week and he LOVES seafood. So where do you for seafood in the Bronx? City Island! There are a lot restaurants in City Island, so we picked Sea Shore because we have never been there before. Portion sizes here are huge, so come with an empty stomach or be ready to take a doggy bag home.
I‘ve wanted to use that alliteration for a long time. Anyway, this past Sunday I went to Bronx Havana Cafe at 3151 East Tremont Ave. My friends would rave about this place, so I finally made the trek.
Authentic. That is what you get when you come to Com Tam Ninh Kieu in the Bronx. This is literally home cooked Vietnamese food at a cheap price. No flash, no gimmicks, just Vietnamese food.
In my quest to find unique places in the Bronx, I stumbled upon Gunhill Brewery. It was a cold Tuesday night. When nerd-in-nice-clothes and I finally reached the Brewery, I thought it was closed! When I was ready to give up, nerd took the initiative and tried to open the door. It turns out it was open, the strong wind flipped over the old fashioned sign.
I did not know what to expect from Mott Haven Bar & Grill. Hell, I got lost trying to find it. Conveniently located near the entrance to the 3rd Avenue Bridge.
I stopped by The Bronx Beer Hall a few weeks ago to meet a friend of mine. She never been here before so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to show her something new. It was a Tuesday and it happened to be karaoke night as well. The nearby college is Fordham University, so the crowd is always a mix of young locals and college students.
Here are some of my favorite places to eat in the Bronx. When someone asks me where to visit when they are in town, I usually tell them something off this list! If you are visiting the Bronx for the first time, you should definitely check these places out. Great food to be had in the boogie down. Checkout the links and see what they are all about!
