Sometimes, I just don’t have an appetite. I love food, I’ll go to the ends of the earth for a quality cup of coffee or really good dumplings, but sometimes, everything just makes me shrug. when that happens, I know there is one answer.
Hello! I made you a kale salad overflowing with pomegranate berries.
Pukk, one of my favorite restaurants for vegetarian Thai food in New York serves a divine “duck” salad. It has this potent spicy, sour, and sweet dressing offset with chewy cashews, crispy mock duck, and fresh bursts of pineapple. I am obsessed. Because it is on the other side of town from me, and even though it is potentially the best $5 you can spend in the city, I had to forage and figure how to make it for myself- so I can eat it, basically every day if necessary.
I will keep this short and sweet as I’m packing up everything I own to board a plane with a one-way ticket to New York in a few days! New York will surely not be lacking in the food department. I am already craving a bowl of Momofuku’s ginger scallion noodles, but I will miss my favorite San Francisco places.
