Also,  Julia Moskin of the NY Times wrote a piece the other day about Bunny Chow, the South African dive bar located at 74 Orchard Street on the Lower East Side.

Here is her description of the food served there. If you have never tried biltong, try it.  It puts beef jerky to shame!

Bunny Chow serves biltong (dried beef), slap chips (thick French fries with a spicy red-chili coating), and its namesake, the bunny chow, a half loaf of soft white bread filled with curry. Satisfying and messy, a bunny tastes like what it is: a cheap and filling meal, easily transportable by workers who lack luxuries like lunch hours and deli sandwiches. The curry can be savored, and no one can argue with spicy fries.

Not NYC related but if you wanted another reason to hate BP for the oil spill, here you go Oil Spill Shuts the Nation’s Oldest Oyster-Shucking Company.(via NY Times Diner’s Journal)

Here is an excerpt:

The oldest oyster-shucking operation in the country shucked its last oyster on Thursday, a victim of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Al Sunseri, whose family has run P&J Oyster Company since 1876, said he was about to give the news  to the workers at their oyster house in the French Quarter of New Orleans.

“All the people I buy from are unable to work their grounds,” he said. “Unless they open some areas,  we’re done.”

Here is what else is going on in the NY Foodie-verse other than The World Cup in the coming days:

The JellyNYC concert series featuring Weezer, Faith No More, and others at East River State Park in Williamsburg will get the hipster–dream-team combo of Roberta’s and the Meat Hook. It’s enough to rival Brooklyn Flea at SummerStage! Edible Brooklyn has the scoop.

The Meat Hook will be cooking their you-must-eat-these-before-you-die sausages from a new “Pig Cooker Trailer Grill” procured in Virginia, as well as pulled pork or Sloppy Joes, plus sweet tea.

They also tell us Roberta’s is hard at work building a pizza oven trailer (we hope it has a rooftop garden too!) and that El Diablo, the truck in the backyard of Union Pool on Union Avenue, is also going to represent with tacos, grilled corn and hopefully horchata.

Look for the Pig Cooker Grill every Sunday there are shows. And maybe we won’t scalp these Weezer tickets after all.

Here is the food menu:

Just for fun, the Cobble Hill Blog went to Brooklyn Farmacy to learn how to make a proper egg  cream, here’s the video
