Hi I am a div

This week in cheap eating:

Andrea H on Downtown Lunch eats a delectable looking, high in fat porchetta sandwich at Di Palo’s in Little Italy. Meanwhile, City Spoonful finds jerk chicken with a sweet, spicy and well-balanced sauce washed down with a bottle of Ting (the nectar of the gods) way out in Canarsie at Dougie’s Jamaican Cuisine.

Jamie Feldmar continues her cheap eats explorations along Brooklyn’s Court Street this week on Serious Eats NY. Also writing for Serious Eats NY is Chris Crowley, who’s a fan of the Torta Hawaiiana at La Cocina Mexicana in the Bronx.

Feisty Foodie has a visceral loathing for the soup dumplings at Shanghai 456 in Chinatown (though the editors can vouch for the excellence of many of their other dishes), but finds solace in a dessert of churros and chocolate at La Churreria in Nolita.

Dave Cook is out and about as always. This week he tried a cherry-flavored coco Cubano at Kenny Bakery on the upper tip of Manhattan in Inwood. On the opposite end of the city, on Staten Island, he could be found slurping the weekend-only special sopa de caracol, a soup of yuca, green plantains and shellfish at Los Catrachos, a rare Honduran find in Stapleton.

And for dessert, James Boo has a slightly caramelized Portugese Egg Tart at New Flushing Bakery in Flushing, of course.
