Food blogger and travel writer Jared Cohee reports on his first solo taxi adventure in New York City.
Thursday, June 9. 6.03pm. Alexanderplatz, Berlin. I forgot my German-English/English-German dictionary, but I take my shaky German to the taxi stand anyway.
An informal food survey of the cabbies at the Helsingforser Strasse taxi stand in Berlin (Friedrichshain) in my (still) horrible German led to a solid round of things to eat. After following their leads from East to West, here's a round-up of what I tasted during my first few weeks in the German capital.
After a year and a half in New York City, I know there are too many interesting cab rides, too many great meals, too many only-in-New York flavors to leave the taxi adventures here behind.
Before I take off for taxi adventures in Berlin next week, I want to thank my passengers for leading me to some great food. I've spent the past week stuffing myself with their suggestions, and here are five things I know I'm going to crave long after I leave New York.
The menu is changing at a popular restaurant in Astoria's Little Dhaka - and that might not be a bad thing.
