My girlfriend and I first tried their delicious food at A Taste of Sheepshead Bay event this past October, and their broccoli and chicken dish was easily one of the most memorable and satisfying bites we had that night. In light of that experience, it actually came…

Kung Fu Tea – sporting some very cool signage – is now open at 1422 Avenue U. The business is apparently a part of a local chain, and a quick Google search turns up locations around the city, including the East Village, Chinatown and Flushing – not to mention one of the dumbest Youtube videos of…

Each week we check out a different offering from one of the many restaurants, delis, food carts, bakeries, butchers, fish mongers, or grocers in our neighborhood. If it’s edible, we’ll take a bite. Back in the early 1980s,…
