We're two NY jews willing to enter the NY vs. Montreal bagel debate, and looking for other great, low-cost suggestions.
We both love spicy SE Asian food, fish, ice cream/sorbet, chocolate, banh mi, fresh fruit, wild-food, and other tastiness. I'd especially like to find Khao Soi, a northern Thai curry noodle dish that I blog about.
I saw the recs on this post http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/542797
and we'll definitely try the bagels, Cafe Saigon, Pied de Cochon, and Jean Talon.
Any other suggestions?
