    Man…Tomio’s Sushi (On Thompson and Houston) is a trip

    Very good sushi and sashimi…
    I adapted this routine from someone I heard of….
    We would stand on the line for like 45 min. to an 1 hour (just for sushi)
    But there’s the best part..there is a deli across the street, owed an INDIAN man
    I would go in and grap my favorite beer (Sam Adams) and stand on line and drink and talk with ur friends until our table is ready!

    The line LOOOOONG but worst very NY mintue…yeah…man !thanks everyone!

    I went to NYC 2 summers ago and it was a great experience. Our hotel was scary. there was a peep hole and the elevator felt like a gas chamber. there was no hot water. try showering at 5am in ice cold water. your hair felt like icycles and there were bunk beds. haha…this is what u get when u havev a friend who refused to pay an extra 20 dollars.

    The first night we were there it rained and we all ran in the rain to our hotel room. it was a warm rain. I was suprised that none of us got sick from it.

    People were friendly and we saw all the tourist attractions in two days. it was the fastest two days of my life. the ferry ride to the statue of liberty was rocky, sticky, windy, salty, but at the same time very fun and i wouldn’t mind doing it again.

    Seeing ground zero was very emotional.

    I wouldn’t mind waiting an hour for sushi either, aslong as it is worth it.

    You have my word !!

    who’s down?

    It’ll be a lot for fun …
    you get to see NYC through my cambodian lens….in other words lots of trips to my moms for PROHOK and then subway back to a bar for drinks until the sun raises !

    Here is a short list of what I missed about the City:
    1. living in my noisy cardboard box size loft in the Upper East Side.
    2. taking a stinky, no a/c, overcrowded Lexington Ave. train to the job that I hate on Wall St.
    3. going to my favorite Chinese beef jerky shop on Mulberry St. and Chinese dumpling shop on Katherine St.
    4. hunting for designer bargain at Century 21 (both downtown and Brooklyn),Loehmann’s in the Bronx and Woodbury Common in upstate.
    5. buying bagels from Tal Bagel(E. 86th between 1st and 2nd Ave)
    6. ice skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park.
    7. Hanging out every night for 2 weeks at Flushing Meadow watching the US Open.
    8. Grocery shopping at Zabar.
    9. Hanging out every Sunday at the Guggenheim, Whitney, Met or MOMA.
    10. and lastly spending time at my 3 best friends: Barney’s, Bergdorf and Bloomie.

    The best Sushi place in the city is called Sushi Yatsuda, 43rd St bet 2nd and 3rd Ave. And a cheap but excellent japanese restaurant, Village Yochoko, on Stuyvesand St in St Mark’s Place. it’s on the 2nd floor.

    wow…this sounds like a plan. i’d love to take another trip back to NYC and this time, actually stay longer than 2 days. that was too much of a rush. July or august is a good time to go. Septemeber is school…no can do.

    I lived in NY for 10 years. Definitely many things I miss. Junior’s for sure. No other cheesecake like theirs. Chinatown for the groceries. I like hanging around Times Square and Madison Square Garden. The whole city feel is nice once in a while, but I don’t think I could live like that day in, day out. I love living close enough to the city that I can go there when I want, but leave all the city headaches too. I lived on Long Island all that time and was fortunate enough to be able to frequent NYC since it’s only about half an hour away.

    If Rami going to take us of to dinner, I say we should go to Masa for sushi $300-$500 (prix fixe). It’s the most expensive restaurant in NYC and they fly fish from Japan daily. Anyway, I perfer to go to Thomas Keller’s new restaurant, Per Se, $125 prix-fixe, $135(vegetarian) & $150 tasting menu. It’s the same menu as the French Laundry in Napa Valley. Afterward, we will indulge ourselves with Debauve and Gailais chocolates from Rami’s shop.

    Is okie..I would be happy w/the hotdog and pizza vent outside. I rather go sight seeing then spend money on something I can’t even afford. I’ll just be at Bo’s house eating his mom’s jar of prohok hehehe :) That’s good enough for me

    Reasmey, I told you the best sushi I ever had outside Tokyo is Yatsuda, Masa is ok. I was at Per Se last week, nothing special ! I won’t recommend. You know the best restaurant is still at my friend’s Daniel (65th and Madison Ave) but I won’t invite all you guys there ! Too much damage for me !
