New Rochelle Noms

I discovered a new favorite meal while I was in New Ro. My parents sold the Big Yellow House last fall, and have been living in a surprisingly nice (for downtown New Rochelle) apartment near the station.

My first morning in, my mom suggested that I head around the block to the Starlite Diner. My dad is a regular customer (probably more regular than his doctor would like...), and it was the perfect re-entry into NewYawk.

On the front door, there is a sign that says "Breakfast Special: Bacon, Egg & Cheese on a Roll with Coffee: $3.50". Mmmmm. It doesn't actually come with a coffee, it comes with a caaawfeeee. The bacon is super-crispy and entirely un-English, the cheese is solidly American (and gloriously melty), and the roll is one of the quintessentially New York squooshy ones.

Here's a picture my dad took, last week, of Michael, the dispenser of bacon-egg-and-cheese-on-a-roll-with-a-cawfee.


I think it's probably good that I don't live in New Ro any more - the temptation to go every morning would be more than I could resist.

oh man I LOVE those... I miss them in Australia too. When I was in NY in May, I had one nearly every day for a week. Including the cheap coffee. Combined with the ham/egg/cheese on a hardroll (my personal fav combination) the cheap coffee actually serves as a good compliment. Not sure why!
My brekkie here is: gluten free rice flakes, 1 tblspn LSA mix (linseed sunflower almond) 1 tspn acacia berry, 1/2 tsspn pro-biotic power, fat-free soy milk. Every day...
