AROUND THE FOOD NYC!
An around the world food tumblr started by this girl who loves food from countries other than the U.S.A...and telling her friends about restaurants in NYC they've never heard of from other countries.
I have wanted to eat Brazilian food in NYC for ages, and now I finally got the chance at New York Pão de Queijo. Their specialty is, of course, Pão de Queijo…which is a type of cheese bread. ( Note: “Pão” is pronounced “paum”, not “pow”). Excuse the mess, I dove right in before thinking about taking a photo. =/

So this was from an Ecuadorian restaurant very close to my job in Williamsburg. Above is a dish called Bandeja Paisa, which can also be found in Columbia as well. Below is an Ecuadorian dish called “Bolon de verde”, but I ordered the one with cheese only.
I ordered these dishes on different days, but the bandeja paisa left me full for the rest of the night. =D

This deserves a special mention because they specialize in food from Southern France. Even though their menu is rather limited, their selections are quite good, and on weekends they serve specials that are not usually on the menu, such as Daube Nicoise. Click on the images for the names of each dish.
Brisas del Caribe was a family favorite restaurant that my parents used to occasionally order dinner from back when I lived in the Bronx. They generally serve Latin American food from the Carribean, but many of them had food items from the Dominican Republic, so therefore I’m listing it under the Dominican flag.
Their rice and beans and tostones (savory fried plantains on the left) are my favorite!
