Eating New York, part 1

george osner | May 4, 2000 12:03 AM

My recent trip to NYC, to visit my son & daughter-in-law and for a conference, gave me a few days to sample the eats in another city. Let us mercifully pass by "dinner" on the plane….I arrived EARLY Thursday morning (on the red-eye from SF) and cabbed it over to Jeremy's (Jeremy steered me to chowhound and is himself an avid hound) . Jeremy, of course, had mapped out a few stops for us. First on the itinerary was breakfast at Krystal's, a treat from the Philippines-scrambled eggs cooked just right and a side of a large scoop of fried rice, with a background sound track that seems to be Celine Dion sung in Tagalog. The fried rice was very tasty, subtly spiced, fried with a touch of grease but not greasy. Jeremy's breakfast also included a kind of marinated & cooked beef called tapa that made a nice alternative to the usual "breakfast meat."

Following breakfast, we took the subway into midtown and I saw Jeremy off to work, so part 2 will continue on the Manhattan board...
