if u like Thai food, i'd suggest Spice on 8th Ave & 20th Street (i think its 20th). there is also one in the village. but its pretty cheap & tasty too.

oh...and if you;re out REALLY late & you want something good and cheap, try the lamb & rice guy on 53rd & 6th (he sells other stuff too). he's only there fom 9pm-5am....the lines get pretty long, so get there early. its worth it!

mmmmmmm.....SPICE is really good...and reasonable price. i usually go to the one on W10 st and university pl. the spacing is just a lil tight though tables are real close to one another but the food is great! for desert gotta try the truffle is warm and soft instead of vanilla ice cream tell them to give u coconut..youll fall in love

lol...yeah...i just moved back to LA from brooklyn. when i lived there,my fiance and i used to stay out REALLY late (we're talking 4am and beyond) & just wander the city. we found all kinds of spots. try the Shawarma guy (i forget the name of the place) just off West 3rd and...hmmm...Sullivan? it's like a blocks from 6th Ave, walking east (b/w 2nd & 3rd St...i think it's called Mamouns or something). good late night eating after u hit the bars (our fav bar was the Fat Black Pussy Cat, on W3 right across from the blue note).

oh...and i saw your indian food list...Baluci's is good and it's EVERYWHERE. there are two in the West Village (one on 6th Ave b/w W4 and W8 & one on W3rd., going east).

yes, i love MAMOUN'S! i think it is the best,
most popular middle eastern food place in new york.
whether you want lunch or dinner or just a snack, this is THE place!
you can get a big falafel sandwich, oozing with sauce, for under $ 5.00.
the lines, at every hour, are the best testament to its popularity. :thumbsup:

119 MacDougal St. New York, NY 10012 (212)674-8685

i also think there is a MAMOUN'S in new haven, connecticut.

baluchi's is an indian food chain.
i'd much rather go to one one of the little store fronts
in and around 6th street.
one of my favorites is actually on 1st avenue, between 5th and 6th streets
(west side of the street, up a little flight of stairs, on the right).
large portions and very inexpensive and delicious.

i'm gettin' hungry! :p

they put the cheecake in a puff pastry, deep fry and then dust with cinnamon sugar--it is beyond great--although I make for Christams a three layer (chocolate, hazelnut and vanilla) cheesecake that is to die for!

Yeah,I don't know how many batches of dough it was though!At least 4 or 5!And yes,here's the recipe!It's fairly easy,but you need a cookie press(looks like a gun & has discs that make different shapes that you put on the bottom & squeeze the dough through & onto cookie sheets.)

Spritz Butter Cookies

1 cup butter,softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cream butter until light.Gradually add sugar & beat well.Add egg,almond extract & vanilla extract.Mix flour & baking powder seperately & add gradually to creamed mixture.Fill cookie press barrel with dough & force through press onto ungreased cookie sheets.Bake 7-10 minutes.

After cooled,brush with light(clear) corn syrup & dip into colored sugar or non-pareils.Or into chocolate topping(recipe below) & nuts if desired.

Chocolate topping

12 oz semi sweet morsels
1/4 cup light(clear) corn syrup
1/4 cup water

Melt in double boiler over hot water,stirring until smooth.
Dip cookies in topping & chooped nuts,if desired & place on wax paper until set.

These are the best!!My Mom has made these every Christmas ever since I can remember!!The chocolate & nut ones go fast!!!If you try the recipe,I hope you enjoy them!!!
Take Care,B

getting started-I just make one kind: we call them butterballs, others call them the mexican wedding cakes or Russian teacakes--you know the balls that are all sugar, nuts and butter. I make a boatload of them (3 lbs of butter worth). Then I give them to everyone. It amkes me a little sad because they are my son's favorites, I even would make them for his birthday. But I have to go on.

This is kinda cute-there was a girl that lived across the street from us for years. She had a huge crush on my son, but was 2 WHOLE YEARS YOUNGER and of course he did not have time for such a "child". Well, a friend reconnected them and just this week they started writing and talking. She called me to see if I remembered her-and I did. It would be so ironic if this turned into something-the girl next door! It is cute to me. He was very shy telling me about it-which usually means he really likes someone. He has never really been serious about any of his girlfriends--but we will see. I hope he learns to truly value those who will stick by him through this.

Tarte Tatin
Product Type: 9" Cake Pan
Tarte Tatin is a staple dessert in France. It was originally created by mistake when two sisters, the Tatin sisters, who ran a bakery, forgot to put the bottom pastry crust down before adding the apple filling to a pie. They solved their problem by turning the pie upside down when they went to serve it. Voilà! I particularly like Tarte Tatin because you never have the problem of a soggy bottom crust.
If youd like to make this dessert in a skillet, check out the Pear Tarte Tatin variation.
Recipe:
Quantity
Ingredient
1 cup
sugar
2 Tbsp.
water
8 each
Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and quartered
2 Tbsp.
sugar
4 Tbsp.
butter
pastry for 9" circle


Combine 1 cup of sugar and water. Cook over medium high heat until sugar melts and starts to brown. When sugar is light brown color, quickly pour into the bottom of the 9" cake pan. Using oven mitts, tilt the pan around so that the sugar coats the bottom.
Combine apples and sugar. Toss well. Place in the pan on top of the sugar. Dot with butter.
Roll out pastry to fit 9" cake pan and drape over the apples, tucking the edges into the pan.
Bake in a 375° F oven for 45 – 60 minutes, or until pastry is brown. Drain off juice from apples carefully.
When ready to serve, invert tarte onto a plate. Be careful for extra hot juice.
