Pies 'n' Thighs

Finally made it to Pies n Thighs in Williamsburg. I ordered the fried chicken with buckwheat waffles.
 The chicken was crispy and seasoned perfectly. The waffles were topped with cinnamon butter and apples. So good! I understand the hype of this place.

Colombian Breakfast

One of the best things about being Colombian is the delectable food. Traditional breakfast is my favorite and a staple in my childhood. I didn't live in Jackson Heights growing up, but I would literally visit every weekend. One of the spots I use to frequent was Native's on Northern Blvd. It closed down, changed management and reopened as Boulevard. The food is just about the same as a remember it.
 Arepa with butter and queso fresco.

Calientado: rice and beans, steak, chorizo, and scrambled eggs with tomatoes and green onions

Jimmy's Diner

It's a pretty tiny place located in Williamsburg. I went around 4pm on a Thursday so it was pretty empty. Everything I tasted that day was heavenly. 
Cheap, delicious diner food.What else could you ask for?
Left: Tater Heaven: tater tots with scrambled eggs, sautéed onions, jack cheese and guac. Right: Cornbread bowl with scrambled 
eggs, cheddar and tomatoes. Upper right: Cowgirl burger with pepper jack cheese, guacamole, jalapenos, and bbq sauce.
