Mr J Sushi
When I think of superb sushi in my community, Mr J Sushi immediately comes to mind.
My taste buds have been treated to a flavorful exploration every time I have visited.
The sushi here is artfully crafted, with fish that seems to dissolve on the tongue and a presentation that is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate.
Whether you are a seasoned sushi lover or are new to the world of sushi, I truly believe that Mr J Sushi is a must-visit.
My personal favorite is their spicy mayo.
They've perfected the art of getting the balance between the spice and mayo just right.
One of my most memorable experiences here was when I placed an order the day before a party.
Not only was the sushi ready at the exact time we had requested, but the quality and taste exceeded our expectations.
The price was very reasonable as well, making it an excellent choice for party catering.
Another plus is the location.
It's very convenient for me as it's right next to our favorite Chinese takeout place, House of Yau Kitchen.
This has made it our go-to place for a delicious Asian cuisine combo.
Dropping by Poke Bros on a whim turned out to be one of the best food decisions I've made recently.
Their poke bowl was absolutely delicious and was a delightful burst of flavors and textures.
It was my first time there, and boy, was it a game-changer!
The fish and every single ingredient in the bowl were so fresh it felt like they were sourced directly from the farm and ocean.
Every bite felt like a journey to a vibrant and tasty paradise.
One thing to definitely try is their sriracha aioli sauce; it's an absolute must if you’re into a tangy kick.
It was welcoming, quick, and efficient service, exactly what you'd want in a fast-paced setting.
Contrary to popular belief, you don't always have to pay a fortune to get quality food.
At Poke Bros, the reasonable pricing is a sweet surprise considering the top-notch quality of their meals.
With such delightful food and service, it's no wonder I've found my new favorite spot.
Indian Express Cuisine
When it comes to exploring authentic Indian recipes in this part of the world, Indian Express Cuisine is my favorite spot.
I'm completely in love with the flavors they serve!
Every time I dine there, it's always a ten-star experience.
The feeling of eating home-cooked food, coupled with their authentic Indian flavor, gives the cuisine a unique and delicious taste.
On my last visit, I had chicken vindaloo paired with a side of lachha paratha, and it was simply amazing.
It's so great to have such an authentic Indian food restaurant right in our neighborhood.
One thing that keeps me hooked to this place is their variety of naan bread.
They serve it in different flavors, but the garlic one has to be my favorite.
The soft, buttery texture is something you won't find anywhere else.
And don't even get me started on the butter chicken, chicken behuna, and lamb chops!
They're cooked to perfection and are absolutely delicious.
Maya Catering Inc.
I must confess I have a newfound passion for Biriyani, thanks to the culinary magicians at Maya Catering Inc..
Picture this, my very first bite into their Chicken Biriyani: the chicken was soft, juicy, and packed full of flavor, the rice was perfectly cooked, and all mingled together with a medley of warm spices that took my taste buds on an exotic journey.
It was the authentic taste of the dish that had me hooked right then and there.
But it didn’t stop at the Biriyani.
I also had the pleasure of attending a house party catered by Maya Catering.
And when people started asking who the caterer was, I knew it wasn’t just me who was impressed.
Speaking of parties, I also decided to hire Maya Catering for my own house party.
And boy, did they deliver!
The service was impeccable, and my guests couldn't stop raving about the food.
I don’t usually dish out recommendations, but for Maya Catering, I’ll happily make an exception.
Their exquisite culinary skills, paired with their top-notch service, make for a dining experience that's not to be missed.
Turnpike Bagels Deli & Bakery
There's just something about the aroma of fresh bagels wafting through the air on a crisp Long Island morning that makes me feel right at home.
Turnpike Bagels Deli & Bakery is my go-to spot whenever I want to start my day off right.
I fondly remember the day I tried their special number 14 - a hefty serving of three egg whites sandwiched between a soft, doughy bagel.
To my surprise and delight, they let me add cheese for a small price, making for an indulgent breakfast that was worth every penny.
More than the food, what's really special about Turnpike Bagels is the welcoming atmosphere.
And don't even get me started on their hot bagels and bialys - they are an absolute treat!
Their bacon, egg, and cheese on a Keizer bun is something I look forward to every weekend.
It's dishes like these that make this deli a must-visit if you ever find yourself on the Island.
Vincenzo's Pizzeria of Levittown
I always want to find the absolute best when it comes to food in Levittown, especially pizza.
Trust me when I say Vincenzo's Pizzeria of Levittown truly checks all the boxes.
Now, calling a pizza place 'the best' can be subjective, but the taste of their regular pizza is spot on.
It's a go-to order for me each time I visit.
But let me tell you, the garlic knots, oh my!
They are the best around here, with pieces of real garlic in them.
I love some daily pizza specials, and Vincenzo's offers just that.
You would be amazed by how much you can save.
They started offering Sicilian pizza, and my family and I have been hooked.
It's heavy, just the way we like.
And those knots?
One thing that draws me back to this place, aside from the delicious food, is their rolls.
They are so good that words simply can't do them justice.
I've been known to dine here two, sometimes three times a week, and Vincenzo's has never disappointed.
Their food is not only tasty but also reasonably priced, which is a big win in my book.
As if the amazing pizza and rolls weren't enough, Vincenzo's has some of the best wings you'll ever try.
And don't even get me started on their margarita pizza with vodka sauce; it's simply outstanding.
In my humble opinion, Vincenzo's Pizzeria is hands down the best pizza place on Long Island, heck, probably anywhere.
It's a Friday night in Levittown, and I'm looking for a place to enjoy some good seafood.
A friend suggests the Sexy Crab, and, intrigued by the name alone, off we go.
Upon stepping in, I'm greeted by the energetic ambiance that’s reminiscent of the previous wing joint that used to occupy the space but with a definitive maritime twist.
The lights are dim, casting a warm glow over the tables where patrons are feasting on all kinds of sea creatures while the music sets a lively mood.
Once seated, we decide to take advantage of their all-you-can-eat offer.
At $50 per person, it's an opportunity to sample a wide variety of seafood dishes.
Perhaps not as budget-friendly as others, but the promise of unlimited seafood is too tempting to resist.
The menu at Sexy Crab is quite extensive and definitely seafood-oriented.
They have everything from lobsters to different types of crabs such as King, Dungeness, and Alaskan; all served with their special garlic and butter sauce.
I'm particularly fond of the Lobster Bisque Soup; it's as close to fresh off the boat as you can get without actually going fishing yourself.
In between the feasting, I couldn't help but notice the service.
But what truly sets Sexy Crab apart is their special touch for celebrations.
On a friend's birthday, they served a complimentary chocolate Soufflé with a liquid chocolate center, topped off with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream.
It was divine, to say the least.
For those who aren't seafood enthusiasts, the options might be a bit underwhelming.
A friend who tagged along found the mozzarella sticks and chicken wings rather mediocre.
But then again, Sexy Crab is all about the seafood.
It’s a place where seafood lovers would feel like they've hit the jackpot, while others might find it a bit, well, fishy.
Sometimes it's those unexpected gems, like Sexy Crab, that make dining here exciting.
Green Street Eatery
Let me tell you about my new favorite spot in the area, the Green Street Eatery.
Stepping in, you can't help but be charmed by the open, bright atmosphere that instantly uplifts your mood, regardless of the weather outside.
It's a haven for those like me, who've embraced a vegan lifestyle, but also for those just venturing into this world of plant-based deliciousness.
This petite cozy nook, diligently designed, is a perfect blend of a café and coffee house.
And the food?
Oh, it's a visual treat and a delight for the palate.
The range of scrumptious offerings here is so amazing that you unwittingly forget that you're on a healthy eating spree.
I can't wait for the warmer months when the outdoor area opens up.
It's going to be an idyllic spot to enjoy my Sunday brunch.
Yes, they do a special brunch every Sunday.
And let me tell you; it's something you don't want to miss.
I've tried various dishes, but their SouthWest Half-sized bowl and Vietnamese Taco are the showstoppers.
The Vietnamese Taco, in particular, transported me back to my childhood, with its flavors so akin to my mom's cooking.
United Caribbean Restaurant
I can't help but share my delightful experience at the United Caribbean Restaurant.
It's not every day that you come across a truly authentic Caribbean spot on Long Island.
I stumbled upon the restaurant while passing by, and the welcoming exterior got me curious.
After a pleasant phone call with a charming lady from the restaurant, I decided to give it a go.
The curry goat I tried was simply divine!
The veggies were fresh, and the rice n peas were cooked to perfection.
Not to forget the star of the show - the plantains.
It was a delightful meal and for a very reasonable price too.
On my other visit, I tried the oxtail and jerk chicken dish.
The portions were generous, and the taste was so authentic that it transported me back to my vacation in Jamaica.
One thing I absolutely love about the place is its ambiance.
The hand-painted murals on the walls are a testament to the love and devotion that has gone into setting up this restaurant.
Trust me, Teng's Restaurant is truly the crown jewel of our neighborhood.
Family-owned and operated, it's more than just a restaurant; it's a heartwarming experience.
From the moment you walk in, you're greeted with the utmost kindness and hospitality.
You feel more like a guest in their home than a customer.
Simply out of this world.
Fresh, hot, and packed with flavors, the dishes are a labor of love by the cooks.
I frequent Teng's often, sometimes with friends, other times with family.
Each visit is marked by a delightful dish that becomes an instant favorite.
Hakka chili chicken, crispy beef, Beisel chicken and beef, and their chef's special fried rice - I've tried them all, and I can vouch for their deliciousness.
The freshness and the authentic flavors make every meal at Teng's a memorable one.
I must admit, the place isn't the largest.
It's a cozy little spot, and everything is served in to-go containers.
But the quirkiness is part of its charm.
The self-service concept makes it feel homely and laid-back.
You get your own plates and utensils, and when you're done, you pack up your leftovers.
It's simple, convenient, and it makes the dining experience uniquely engaging.
You know those evenings when you're just too tired to cook and you crave something hearty and comforting?
That's when I head over to Riella's Homestyle.
This cozy little gem in the neighborhood strip mall has quickly become my favorite Italian place around.
The food was mouth-watering, true Italian classics, served piping hot and flavorful.
Their pasta is a must-try – each bite tastes like it's been kissed by an Italian grandma!
And let's not even start on their pizza, thin crust, just the right amount of crunch, and oh-so-cheesy!
But on top of all the delicious food, there's my personal favorite – their arancini.
I swear, these little rice balls are nothing short of magic.
I've had them for takeout once, and I've thought about them almost every day since.
They have this unique, addictive flavor that's just out-of-this-world delicious.
There's something about a pizza night that brings out the kid in me.
And when that pizza night is at Riko's Pizza, you're in for a real treat.
Their pizza is a slice of heaven, always delicious and never disappointing.
The gluten-free crust is a standout, so good, in fact, that I often find myself preferring it over the regular dough.
The menu is something else; the Fresh Mozzarella Salad Pizza with grilled chicken is a must-try, as is their Hot Oil Pizza.
However, from time to time, there can be a bit of a wait.
I recall one evening when I had ordered for pick-up and arrived 10 minutes past the given time, only to find my order was not ready.
Ended up waiting an additional 30 minutes, which was a bit of an inconvenience.
But they were apologetic about the delay, which was a nice touch.
Riko's is not just about pizza, though; they have a fair selection of other treats.
Once, I decided to switch it up and ordered their Margherita pizza and wings.
The wings were okay, not too special, but the pizza, even though it was thin crust, was quite enjoyable.
A perfect fit for those who enjoy "bar food."
The place also has a pub-like atmosphere, complete with a bar and huge TVs.
It's a cute spot to hang out and enjoy a beer, giving it a unique charm.
But the real stars here are the pizzas.
The bar pies are unlike anything I've had elsewhere.
The Margherita, Meatball, and Clam Pies come highly recommended.
Plus their wings with house sauce, while not out-of-this-world, are still pretty good.
Definitely, the best pizza place in the area.
Who knew that you could find a little piece of Japan right in the heart of Levittown?
I'm talking about Ginza, my go-to Japanese restaurant around here.
You can tell the freshness of their fish with just one bite, a testament to the chef's skill and dedication.
And don't get me started on the cutting skills.
Every slice of sashimi, every piece of sushi, is a testament to the chef's mastery.
You can feel the precision and care in every bite as if each morsel was specially crafted just for you.
But what truly sets Ginza apart is their unique sauce pairing for every dish.
It's like they've managed to capture the essence of Japan in a bottle and generously serve it up with each of their meals.
The truffle sauce, in particular, is my absolute favorite.
But the experience is not just about the food.
The atmosphere in Ginza is simply captivating.
With the dramatic decor and the warm, friendly service, it's a place that welcomes you from the moment you step through the door.
One of my most memorable experiences was when I took my partner there for a surprise birthday meal.
I had called the day before to arrange for their fried green tea ice cream to be served as a surprise dessert.
My partner was so taken aback, and it made for a truly unforgettable night.
Calda Pizzeria & Restaurant
There's nothing like a slice of authentic Italian pizza to kickstart your day, and when it comes to the finest pizzas in the area, I've got just the spot for you.
Calda Pizzeria & Restaurant has become my go-to place for a heavenly pizza experience.
Their BBQ chicken pizza has left an unforgettable impression on my taste buds.
Picture this: a pizza generously loaded with an exquisite variety of toppings, almost making you forget about the crust beneath!
Their side of garlic knots complimented the pizza perfectly, adding that extra hint of flavor that made the meal even more delightful.
But the pizzeria's not just about pizzas.
I once ordered a panini tray for a get-together at home.
Every bite of the panini was a burst of freshness, leaving my guests asking for more.
What made the experience even better was their top-notch customer service, which impressed me just as much as their food.

Imagine a place where you can unwind after a long day, a place that’s as spontaneous as it is comforting.

When you step into Cachapas Long Island, you're immediately welcomed by the aroma of sizzling food and the friendly service.
When I first tried the Cachapa Cubana, it was a revelation.
The freshness of the ingredients, the richness of the flavors, it was a party in my mouth.
My partner devoured the Patacón with 3 meats.
And don't even get me started on their homemade hot sauce.
It's fiery, tangy, and just the right amount of heat you need to spice up your meal.
The “Maracucha” Burger is another must-try.
It's a hearty delight that leaves you sated and craving for more.
What's more, servings are generous enough to share.
Pietro's of East Meadow (East Meadow)
Last night, my partner and I decided to have a spontaneous and early Valentine’s Day dinner at Pietro's of East Meadow.
It was our very first time trying this place, and wow, it didn't disappoint!
Walking through the doors was like stepping into an old-school Italian trattoria.
The recent renovations have given the place a facelift without compromising its rustic charm.
Their outdoor dining area was just as inviting and added an amazing touch.
We decided to share a sesame crust pizza, and let me tell you; it was cooked to absolute perfection.
The crust was just the right amount of crispy, and the flavors were spot-on.
I opted for their drunken eggplant Parmesan, a unique twist on a classic, and it was beyond yummy.
While my other half ventured for the drunken lasagna.
Both dishes were mouthwateringly good and leave us yearning for more.
Of course, no Italian meal would be complete without dessert, and Pietro's certainly didn't disappoint there.
We shared a slice of their pistachio ricotta cake and tartufo, and it was the perfect ending to our dinner.
The cake was light, not too sweet, and simply divine.
The entire place had a buzz, with people coming in and out, all looking satisfied with their meals.
Brixx Bar and Grill (East Meadow)
There's something about walking into Brixx Bar and Grill after a long day.
Even though the decorations might be a bit sparse, it doesn't take away from the warm and friendly atmosphere this place has to offer.
The crowd is fantastic.
It's always nice to see familiar faces and meet new people.
The Karaoke nights are a blast here, adding a fun twist to the usual bar experience.
When it comes to food, the Reuben Sandwich is my go-to choice.
An absolute delight, full of flavor, and reasonably priced.
The bar also prides itself on its cleanliness.
I've rarely seen a spotless restroom in a Bar and Grill kind of place.
You can always count on ordering something delicious from the menu.
Levittown is truly a food lover's paradise.
The diversity in cuisine is simply unmatched - from the sumptuous Mexican delights at Casa De Queso to the mouth-watering sushi at Mr J, and not forgetting the unique Venezuelan dishes at Cachapas Long Island.
