I made Buffalo wing with a healthier twist- roasted the wing in the oven instead of deep frying, replaced the blue cheese dressing  with garlic hummus. Still really good & not as greasy. #astoria #chicken #wings

Just went to a pre-opening tasting of my friend’s new Indian dosa restaurant Soho Tiffen Junction on 8th street. It was really good. Think burrito but Indian ingredients & flavors. It’s healthy too.  They are scheduled to open around April 1st. Check it out. #nyc #indian #dosa
