Alidoro addiction.

Once again I’m being a BAD CRITIC because I’m going to visit my buddy Walter at Alidoro every day.  I was warned that his sandwiches were extremely addictive, and those who did the warning weren’t joking: I think I was craving a repeat meal of yesterday’s Arzibubo, with Genoa salami, smoked mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes, and sweet peppers.  I don’t even usually like sun dried tomatoes and artichokes, so obviously there’s some kind of addiction taking place.

I think the special Bastardino sandwich I had on Monday was even better – the same smoked mozzarella (not extremely salty like Joe’s Dairy’s was a few weeks back), adulterated with arugula, sweet peppers, and the Italian bacon known as pancetta.  Fantastic stuff, that pancetta, let me tell you – not at all like American bacon, it’s more like a thick prosciutto in some ways.  I was lucky enough to get the last portion, and I will be ordering it again when it’s available.

Later this week, I’m taking a group of folks out to Cheburechnaya – should be a good time, and I’ll be sure to fill you in on all of our various exploits.  I hope to get some additional food adventures in soon, as it’s been entirely too long.

    need a cure? get yourself over to Pio Maya on 8th Street near macdougal, finally some proper mexican love for lower manhattan…

  3. I went to Pio Maya a few weeks back. I had a burrito which was just okay, but that’s not a good way to judge any Mexican restaurant. Perhaps I’ll go back again next week.

    yeah I’ve never actually had the burritos, but the tacos are incredible by Manhattan standards, great by NY ones and totally solid and good by California ones. Same for the tamales. Haven’t tried that much else but I got my half mexican friend from LA hooked and he’s willing to vouch for most of the menu…
