Lunch at the famous Peter Luger’s — aka gangsta operated restaurant. Give yer respect to the main man. Booyakasha!

Unfortunately the excitement fizzled off when we found out their main chef had some family emergency — all their daily lunch specials were unavailable! =( We could only order from the dinner menu…boo!

Overall the meal was subpar, nothing exceptionally memorable, paid way too much. Disappointed.

Peter Luger’s
178 Broadway
Brooklyn, N.Y. 11211



Hungry Cactus’ final verdict for Peter Luger: C+ (isolated score)
Note: Given such a low rating this time, everyone still should go to Peter Luger’s at least once for dinner…the food was much better last time I went (would have given it an A-). If you go at night, the dark streets will look like a classic mob movie scene. =)

Sugar Sweet Sunshine

126 Rivington St
New York, NY 10002
(212) 995-1960

When I first walked into the store, I immediately felt the sunshine in the cupcakes and puddings. Shining at me were these cupcake flavors:

Sunshine: Yellow cake with vanilla buttercream
Bob: Yellow cake with chocolate almond buttercream
Ooey Gooey: Chocolate cake with chocolate almond buttercream
Sexy Red Velvet: Red velvet cake with âEURoeThe MooseâEUR
Sassy Red Velvet: Red Velvet cake with chocolate almond buttercream
Black & White…Just Right: Chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream
Pistachio: Pistachio cake with âEURoeThe MooseâEUR
Pumpkin: Pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing
Lemon Yummy: Lemon cake with lemon buttercream
Coconut: Coconut cake with meringue

The Lemon Yummy was simply made for me — light in flavor and volume! Soooooo tangy, yet extremely light…it could easily have been named Lemon Dreamy. Hmmmmmmmm! Another one of my favorites was the Banana Pudding — fresh and moist banana pudding! I’ve never had such a good pudding! Simply wonderful after a meal or just for a snack. Oh, Alex got the Piggy Pudding… oink oink!! =)

Hungry Cactus’ final verdict for Sugar Sweet Sunshine: A-
