This month’s theme on W42st is travel. This is just a small sample of countries you can visit while in Hell’s Kitchen, which you can find in the magazine mini zine. Bring your passports.
Nano (Ecuador). Abel and co. redefining ‘hole in the wall’ while dishing out all sorts of hearty traditional Ecuadorian specialties. Try the homey Caldo de Bola soup
Meske (Ethiopia). Our “Little Ethiopia” is very little, with only two restaurants right next to each other. Here you get dirty and use the spongy Injera bread to scoop up all the goodies on it
Pam Real Thai (Thailand) – Tucked just a bit outside of Thai mecca 9th is perhaps the best of them all (along with Pure Thai). The Oxtail soup can cure summertime sadness.
Gazala’s (Israel Druze) – The only Druze dining in NYC. I cant get enough of the Hummus here because the guests I bring never leave me much
City Sandwich (Portugal) – These are Portuguese inspired sandwiches served with a smile. The best Pastel de Nata (egg tarts) in town, called here Pastel de Crema
What about poor little Inti? I still drool when I think of their ceviche mixto.
