A glutton on either coast

Too jet-lagged and full after a truly debauched trip to New York and Philly, I’m going to let the images of my gluttony speak for themselves. Recommendations: having Trixie or Scotty make you a nice steak, or tracking down wonderful Bangladeshi food in Queens, or indulging in (hangover-cure) dim sum in Brooklyn’s Chinatown.

    where is Brooklyn’s Chinatown?

  2. cynthia says:

    Lots of good eats

  3. Dave says:

    Brooklyn’s Chinatown. I haven’t been there either, Lane. We should check it out sometime.

  4. cynthia says:

    Welcome back. Looks like y’all had fun last night

  5. Jeremy's tummy says:

    Yes J, we had a great time, but I think I need a little vacation myself. Remember, we take care of those who take care of us.

  6. Tim Wager says:

    I love food!

  7. LT says:

    Let’s compare jet-lag stories soon.

  8. Jeremy says:

    Don’t you live in Brooklyn, Lane? It’s in Sunset Park, I’m told… And, yes, you should check it out–Park Asia Restaurant. And, yes yes, LT–how about this week?

  9. brooke says:

    Trixie is a freaking genius. I’m hungry.

  10. Missy says:

    Did you have the Bangladeshi food in Jackson Heights? Where? There’s plenty of fabulous Indian food in Chicago, but I miss the Jackson Diner.

  11. Jeremy's tummy says:

    As someone who shared in here New Years standing rib roast, I fully concur — genius!

  12. I love Trixie’s grill skills, but I also love sushi with Steph and Scotty. I did get to have dim sum with Steph this winter, though, and got to watch Scotty drink his wine/cola concoction. But I think Jeremy may be the most spoiled boy on the planet as far as vacation eating and friending is concerned.

  13. Jeremy says:

    Missy, I want to say that the Bangladeshi place was called, I think, Spicy Mina, but it was in another neighborhood, adjacent to Jackson Heights. I can’t recall the name right now.

    And, Bryan, yes, I was indeed spoiled over the last three weeks. (I should’ve also mentioned the vegan asian food and the borscht i had at your house–but, alas, there were no pictures, which is a shame, especially because that borscht was such a vibrant, beautiful shade of red, and delicious, to boot.)

  14. Ruben Mancillas says:

    my only concern is that jeremy may have started a disturbing trend of contributor body part/organ comments.

    btw, we did eat dim sum at same brooklyn establishment; wouldn’t dare to say where exactly it was located but it was good.

  15. Jeremy's Liver says:

    Incidentally, Jeremy’s Tummy should not be complaining…

    Me? I feel used and abused!

  16. Jeremy's Brain Cells says:

    How do you think I feel, bitches??

  17. lane says:

    On my way to the studio this morning I thought:

    “Oh, he means that place on the B train where all those Chinese people live. 36th street. Huh, I guess that is ‘Brooklyn’s Chinatown.”

    The funny thing is all those people work in Manhattan’s Chinatown.

    I wonder if all the Chinese food in Brooklyn’s Chinatown is actually made by Mexicans.

    They live there too.

    Great photos of food, but I was wondering if you’d care to expand more on that phrase “truly debauched trip.” It sounds as if there is more than just food gluttony implied in those words. Any tasty comments? You’re among friends.

  19. Scotty says:

    Remember Jeremy, whatever you do, don’t turn around!

  20. Jeremy says:

    Alas, Scotty, if only I could post those photos!

  21. Natasha says:

    Why is there duct tape next to the cheese and dry borsch bits in the top picture? Is it a part of some type of a gluttonous experience?

  22. I wondered that myself, Natasha, but enjoyed its presence anyway.

    Was anyone else relieved that Jeremy’s organs eventually stopped commenting on this thread? Where would it have led?

  23. Stephanie Wells says:

    You know darn well where it would have led.

  24. Natasha says:

    It must have been a part of the debauched trip and got into the gluttonous picture by mistake.

  25. re #23 — i should clarify: i enjoyed its presence in the picture; i wasn’t actually at the dinner, so i don’t know what other purposes it served other than being a prop in the picture.

    re #24 — one can only imagine. it could have turned out to be like some eighteenth-century novel narrated by a pin cushion that makes its rounds through the kingdom: the adventures of jeremy’s elbow in philly and new york, narrated by the elbow itself.

  26. kevin says:

    spicy mina is in woodside, queens. brooklyn’s chinatown is on 8th ave, stretching roughly from 40th st. to about 66th st. park asia, the dim sum place, is at 8th and 65th or 66th. take the N to 8th ave. and walk south. there are also some good vietnamese places heading the other way on 8th in the lower 60s and 50s, and there is a turkish place or two thrown in for good measure. nice pictures, jeremy.

  27. trixie says:

    the photo with the duct tape was taken at our friend’s house in north philly on new years’ eve. i love that it was included as well. these particular friends are constantly immersed in some type of home renovation project, and they always have tools and evidence of that ongoing work visible somewhere. also, it could be used to hold your pants up if you had to unbutton them after eating too much prime rib. i wore a dress so i didn’t have to worry about that (planning ahead, me).
    great photos, jeremy.
    and did i mention we really miss you?

  28. ssw says:

    I figured the duct tape was a slight nod to the debauchery. Who are we to judge?

    I think i know just a tad about the debauched side of the trip. but i ain’t sayin’ nothin’.
