New SF transplant in NYC: looking for good/similar SF Greats!

Hi,

I recently moved to a sublet in Harlem (125th & Lennox) from San Francisco recently and I am on the hunt for SF equivalents and other recommendations in Manhattan.

My interests are super casual, mom n pop, inexpensive eats made with love!

Some of the things I miss from SF that I want to find in NYC:

Tu Lan (vietnamese): greasy huge crisp Imperial Rolls, Curry fried rice.

Mexican food in the mission: REAL al pastor cooked on vertical spit, and also good carnitas.

Turtle Tower (viet): Real Bun Cha

Some good casual Beef Rendang from a good Indonesian place

Burma SuperStar: burmese curries & foods

Many casual Thai places in SF: Crying Tiger, crispy pork belly w/ spicy sauce, pork leg stew, duck fried rice, roast duck over white rice, etc., etc.

...this is all I can think of right no...more will follow

Also, recommendations to really good food spots in Harlem where I am subletting (125th & Lennox) is very welcome for when I wanna eat local.

thanks
