~ This is Day 125 ~
Not to sound elitist, but what do those people do during quarantine/lockdown if they “don’t cook”? Seamless everyday? My mind is baffled. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t know how to cook.
So… Fish Cheeks opened up outdoor dining but I live uptown so it’s a trek to go down there during COVID-19. Also, I’m still skeptical about outdoor dining in NYC, there seems to be groups/crowds nearby your table… Even though I am used to the mask now, NYC is experiencing an intense heatwave and I can’t deal again. SO, if I can’t get Fish Cheeks‘ crab fried rice, I’ll make it myself!!! I mean, it’s just crab + cold jasmine rice + accoutrements. It’s not identical to their fried rice but fried rice is fried rice!
I have been ordering seafood from Pierless, a restaurant purveyor of all things seafood. Many restaurant purveyors started selling their products at wholesale price to home chefs since quarantine began. And I love that! You know you’re getting the best quality, compared to regular grocery stores! Although prices can be expensive sometimes, you just have to justify what you would want to pay versus what you can get in the regular stores.
In this picture, I have fresh Lump Crab Fried Rice with Scrambled Eggs, Sweet Corn, Scallions, and White Sesame Seeds.
