A triage of tastes: @ Falchi’s, 31-00 47th Ave., Long Island City, Queens 12/9/16

Payday is one of the most sweetest words in the English language. After paying 2 credit cards and depositing some cash in savings, I wanted to “treat” myself. Since I wasn’t in the mood for steak, oysters or anything tipped in gold, Falchi’s I must go!

The thing is, since I’ve eaten at almost all of the eateries over there (except the gelato place), one does tend to get into a rut…When I ordered the mushroom pie at Stolles, which is one of my favorites (mushrooms blended with onion and egg in a golden, decorated pastry), I thought:

“O God, I am repeating myself.”

(This irrational fear is just ridiculous. It’s not like I am currently morphing into several family members, each one ate a specific Campbell’s soup on a certain day. Of course not.)

So, to trump this stupid fear, I walked to Don Tapas kiosk next door to Stolles, and ordered their Friday cerviche special: cerviche shrimp in tarter sauce.

Luckily, the shrimps have been cooked/boiled, and the tartar sauce was a tangy aioli, full of onions and capers. I’ve never been a fan of tarter sauce, so it was just okay.

As usual, the mushroom pie did not disappoint. 🙂

For dessert, I added the newest regular flavor of the Doughnut Plant = Vegan Banana. As predicted by the charming, hipster cashier, this yeast doughnut is subtly flavored like a banana bread, but not as harsh (like a muffin, perhaps?)

Afterward, I needed a long, winter’s nap, but my friend’s call kept me awake for an hour. Man, do I need caffeine…

Enjoy, and have a wonderful weekend!
