Little medallions of filet mignon on a bed of rice? A glass of beer? Some good buddies? What I wouldn't do to live next door, and eat this food constantly.
Sadly, it is not as good as some other options. Like that bar of deodorant that it almost depleted but still works (but maybe cuts up your pits a little in the process), so it is with La Veracruzana. Gets the job done, but I will follow that statement with no glowing modifiers. Not here. Not like this.
I think the veggies TASTE frozen sometimes. That's not to say that they are using frozen veggies, or that I even CARE about such things. It's just how I feel. The lunch specials are cheap and delicious, it's true, but with Siam Square just down the road, it's my humble opinion that there is some slack, and that pick it up they must.
This place is tremendous. At the whim of The Chief Commander, yes, I have some food allergies. Siam Square is accommodating. Siam Square does not say, "This is how I am: adapt to me!" Rather, Siam Square says, "I am like the ocean, forceful, but abiding."
I first set foot in Schoen Books for a poetry reading, and I have not been the same man since that day. It is a mystical place -- in an old firehouse -- with deep and profound mysteries.
Go ahead. Drop your car off with the friendly folks at Seven Sisters, and walk on over to the Smithsonian for a BURGER. Sure, maybe it'll cost you a few more bucks than the Jiffy Lube, but what are a few bucks in the grand scheme of things? Avast! Glance up at the constellations and heed the answer!
Thank you. Thank you for your kindness all these years, and for being the place to go when you just don't know what else to do anymore.
Right next door to the local fishmonger, where you can get delicious Fish and Chips on Fridays, King Street Liquors is the king of liquor stores on King St.
The best of both worlds, my friends! Do you want a monstrous pint of BBC Steel Rail for $3.50? Check! Do you want a fancy piece of salmon for much, much more? Check! They will take on all comers. I wore a sweatshirt, and no one laughed.
Although, when I tried to order it, they were, sadly, out of mint. Alas, I remembered back to when I sipped my friend's, months before, and how cool and how refreshing it was. They have great chairs, too. It's pricey, but then, you knew that walking in the door.
