Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

PRINCESA BAKERY RESTAURANT, 94 Graham Avenue (at Seigel Street), Williamsburg, BrooklynAs most of you know, I lead food cart tours for a company called Turnstile Tours. But did you also know that the same company leads a handful of other tours around Brooklyn, all partnered with non-profit community organizations?

Since I had a rare Saturday free recently, I joined Cindy (my boss) to take the Immigrant Foodways Tour. This tour leads you around a part of East Williamsburg that is mostly hipster free and introduces you to the Latin American community here through their food, people, and history. You even get a full-on tour of the historic Moore Street Market, talking to vendors and hearing their stories along the way.

And, of course, food is a big part of it. I was amazed at how much food there is on this tour. And it was all prepared with love and tradition. From fried pig parts to hearty sancocho soup to Puerto Rican bread pudding to a salad of cactus and Mexican white cheese, it was a well-balanced and rich afternoon of tasting.

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures.

One of my go-to restaurants on the Upper West Side has always been the Greek restaurant Kefi. It’s since moved from its original location (to a larger one nearby) and in its place the same Chef Michael Psilakis has opened up a seafood restaurant (with some Greek influences) called Fish Tag. Add one more UWS go-to spot to the list!
