EATVENT: Meat Pies and other Thanksgiving goodies at M. Wells

Dear Food Diary:

French class is one of my favorite memories from Toronto public school. Mind you, when I finally made it to Paris, I couldn’t parler any Francais. But those wonderful Tourtière (meat pies) our teacher – mademoiselle M – made for the holidays are still vivid enough, I can smell it. I haven’t had one just like it since, but  genuine nostalgia might be to blame…

These delicious memories came back while reading M.Wells ‘ Thanksgiving email – meat pie season has started!

Dear Food Diary:
I’m a total dumpling addict. I’ll have them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There’s always a bag in my freezer. If I don’t have time to make my own I buy them frozen. So you can understand how Dumpling Galaxy and their more than 80 dumpling fillings rocketed to the top of my eat list.

Dear Food Diary:
I’ve been obsessed with Instagram lately. While browsing through hundreds of mouth watering photos last Friday, my feed was flooded with shots of an insane wagyu tomahawk from M. Wells Steakhouse.

The steakhouse has been on my list and these photos made it top priority. (I weeped when the first M. Wells diner closed down).

At 9am, I messaged my fellow carnivore J. She teased only I would get excited about steak in the morning, but jumped on a moo wagon with me, no questions asked. J, StalkerBoy and I left LIC Sunday night as very happy carnivores.

Dear Food Diary:
When it comes to hot pot, Flushing just rules over the other boroughs. With so many options, Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot is top on my list. 

I couldn’t take this cold weather any longer, so we ventured into my old hood yesterday for some good old steamy dipping fun. Seriously, the perfect winter fix a train ride away.

Dear Food Diary:
2 weeks ago, I read about Mami PG’s Cooking on Midtown Lunch. A family business run by Malaysian freelance journalist Nani Yusof Hughie. She cooks up authentic Penang dishes and delivers them lunch box style to the Malaysian deprived midtown lunch crowd. The Nasi Lemak lunch was only $7! Yes please!
