  • "It's the cornbread" at Jacob's Restaurant "that will have us hopping on the A train and returning, again and again, for its ability to be so many things all at once: dense and light, savory and sweet, caramelized and chewy, absolutely extraordinary." [We Heart New York]
  • Maple sugar cotton candy from Liddabit Sweets at the New Amsterdam Market: "The fluffy stuff is twirled around a pretzel stick, which is nothing short of pure genius." [Fork in the Road]
  • Fried chicken at the Xing Wang Cart: "Unlike a few other carts, the breading here is thick and stays put during the frying." [Blondie and Brownie/The Vendys]
