Khe-Yo – 157 Duane St, (b/t Broadway & Hudson St) NYC 

I became very curious about Khe-Yo after I saw many food bloggers posting pictures. I came here with six friends on aSaturday night. I was able to make a last minute reservation through OpenTable. The place was very busy when we get there around 8pm. After we all sat down we were ready to order drinks right away! Yay! I love Saturday! *\(^_^)/*  I noticed the wine menu was surprisingly reasonable for this kind of restaurant in Tribeca. My girl, Nam, got there first and she already knew what she wanted to order. So, we let her order for the table. This was my first time eating Laotian cuisine and I was ready for a new experience. Well, well… Let me start with the highlight of our dinner. My favorite dishes were the Creekstone Farms Steak Tartare salad and the Banana Wrapped Red Snapper entree. They were good. I thought the Wok-Fried Glass Noodle entree was OK, too. However, the Grilled Laos Style Sausage was very disappointing. Overall, I’m sorry to say that I didn’t care for anything I ate during this visit. I’m not planning to go back to Khe-Yo anytime soon, but Laotian cuisine is unusual even in a city like NY which normally has every kind of cuisine. Maybe you should check it out at least once and try some other dishes that I didn’t order. Also, here is my friend’s blog posts on the Tabelog site. You can see the different dishes’ photos and their reviews. Please let me know your favorite dish if you do decide to go there!

 Super Pink Lipstick Sunday at L’Apicio

Photo

I had great Sunday dinner at this modern Italian restaurant in the East Village. This large restaurant has sleek and minimalist deco. L’Apicio is run by same peoples who run Dell’ Anima and L’Artusi in West Village. L’Apicio is known for their pasta dishes as is Dell’Anima yet I didn’t order any pasta dishes this time ……I wasn’t in the mood for it. Guess what!!! When I blogged about Dell’ Anima in the past the polenta dish was the only dish that disappointed and I gave one heart rating but this time at L’Apicio I have to take it back!!! They serve four different kind of polenta Alla Spianatora and I had roasted mushroom and it was so yummy ~ Next time I will try their famous pasta dishes so stay tuned…… xoxo
