Sleep Studies are Delicious

Food makes everything fun! Even sleep studies at NY Presbyterian Hospital on a Friday night when no one else, except for the sleep study technician, is on the whole floor. Creepy, but also a great way to lock yourself in a room and eat leftover Mofongo!

I did a sleep study a few weeks ago because some of my doctors suspected some signs of narcolepsy... hehehehehehehe I still think it's so funny. But not really because now I don't have a car.

So Tiny drove me to Wash Heights early so that we could eat. Earlier that day, he ran 15 miles :training for the NYC Marathon: and I biked along with him, so we figured we deserved to eat whatever the eff we wanted.

A totally random little latin place called El Nuevo Caridad. God, I really hate my iPhone pics. I have the iPhone that came out in 2007.
Tiny got Mofongo with Pork

And I got the Chicken in Garlic Sauce

We got 2 ENORMOUS plates of rice, seriously bigger than Shaq's head, and beans!

I'm obsessed with Mofongo now. I had no idea what it was until this meal. Here's what the Wikimaster says:
"Mofongo is generally made from fried green plantains (although fried yuca or breadfruit are possible) which is mashed together with broth, garlic, olive oil, and pork cracklings or bits of bacon. It is often filled with vegetables, chicken, crab, shrimp, or beef and is often served with fried meat and chicken broth soup.[1] Mofongo relleno is mofongo stuffed with stewed beef, chicken or seafood, with stewed sauce poured over."-Wikipedia

So I went a little bit crazy during this sleep study, and I was pissed that I had glue on my scalp for like 3 days, and I was REALLLY upset that I couldn't have coffee during the sleep study, but I'm glad it's done and over with.

Now the big question is this:
Does Miki have Narcolepsy or not?

Stay tuned for the results!

Food For Fuel

I work out a lot. So I need fuel. That's my excuse as to why I eat so much.... but can I just say that I got to the best gym ever?

Where is the best Thai restaurant in NY?

I really am no judge of the "best Thai restaurant in NY" because, like, I LOVE Thai food, but I don't know what to base my judgements on. I like Garlic and Pepper in Tuckahoe, but it's because I think it's better than Siam Orchid.

Now I had been hearing about Sri Pra Phai for-ever. I really don't know why i waited so long to come here. I guess I think that anything outside of Westchester is like "too far". Meanwhile, this trip to Queens only took like 2 minutes.

And I went with Miss. Sarah! I just always picture her in like a cute fluffy apron, holding two ginormous Lulu cakes! Tonight she was ZESTY!

She started with this Thai Iced Tea. BIG-ASS-BUBBLES BRO!

We went with some suggestions that we had received before leaving for our big to-do.

Papaya Salad with dry shrimp and peanut

Massaman Curry with Beef

Sautéed Eggplant with pork, chili, garlic, and basil


#1. Coconut Pancakes

#2. Black Bean in Coconut Milk

Everything that we ordered was a winner! But I must say I really, really really loved the Massaman Curry! And the Coconut Pancake thingies were awesome.... they were like mochi patties with coconut in them, and yhen like pan fried. YUM.
