A Mighty Shakshuka



I rarely venture into the TriBeCa hood, but when I do, I likely have a destination programmed into my Google Maps.

The boring intro is that I started my Saturday with a mid-day sweat session at Flywheel. This was only strictly so I can douse my white pita in a plate swarming with olive oil, and walk away convinced I was just getting my Omega-3’s for the day.

So, Gotan. Firstly, +99 points for the generous sprinkling of pine nuts (which I can’t afford at $8.99 for 12 pieces). Tahini was key, too. If you’re not a parsley person, run, because it’s present in abundance. And mingled to form the pesto. The only downside is that it’s not baked into a cast iron skillet, which prevented the shakshuka from remaining piping hot within the time it took to devour this thing. (Potentially 4 minutes, TBD).

Okay, all in all…you should hit up this spot. Coffee shop vibes with a full menu that includes anything and everything you could possibly be craving, some long wooden communal tables, and a relaxed hang-out atmosphere. I’ll be back to post up with magazines, notebooks, and other things I hoard, which I will pair with the avocado toast (potentially a salad, depending on my denim of the day).

Happy Saturday. Don’t forget there’s eggs under there.
