Screaming Trees
Sweet Oblivon

Previously, on Music & Food...

"This is a Polish metal band that plays a sort of grimey doom metal that also happens at times to sound a weird amount like Alice in Chains and Screaming Trees, without being as fun or weird as either. I don't know if I like it? But it has made me want to go listen to Screaming Trees."

Hey, this Screaming Trees album is good! I've never actually sat and listened to this band before, but it absolutely hits an early 90s grunge sweet spot, and you can hear every bit of influence they had on the entire genre after them. Much more listenable than SUNNATA.

Skylight DinerManhattan
Cheese omelette and sausage

It's been so long since I've sat in a diner and eaten breakfast. So long. You know this, why am I telling you? We've all gone through this shit at the same time, I don't need to sit here and tell you how much I missed eating breakfast in a diner.

This very average omelette and sausage links and home fries at the very average Skylight Diner in Chelsea on a very average Saturday morning was the absolute best kind of average. I loved it and I can't wait to do it again.

Joey Bats CafeManhattan
Pastéis de nata

Just need to update you that I ate another pastéis de nata. This one at the incomprehensibly named Joey Bats Cafe in the Lower East Side. It's far hipper than the Teixeira Bakery in Newark, more expensive than the Teixeira Bakery in Newark, but not as good as the Teixeira Bakery in Newark.

Don't get me wrong, it was good. If you're in the Lower East Side and want a pastéis de nata, by all means absolutely do it. You'd be crazy not to. But if you can only eat one pastéis de nata this year (that would be a weird situation... what would lead to that?), get yourself to Newark.
