New York Shitty Day Ender: Open!

This item was brought to my attention by a gentleman named Todd. He writes:

Follow up on your post about that Mexican place on Manhattan that went on ‘vacation’.  They are open now.  I came home to find the attached on my doorstep.  I’m conflicted – if they cook as poorly as they use google translate… it will either be friggin horrid or absolutely fascinating.  I mean seriously, what is this even trying to say?  I recommend picking up the menu yourself.  There are all kind of delightful grammatical nightmares inside, including a Cheeseburger on ‘bum’.

Correction, Todd: that’s a cheeseburger on a toasted bum (don’t look at me, I prefer the term “public inebriate” myself). In all seriousness, I tried this establishment today. It’s run by the same nice folks who operated New Tulcingo. My grilled cheese tasted exactly the same. In fact, the only real changes I could ascertain were appearances and the menu (for example: all the Mexican offerings seem to have been removed).  You can view Coffee Friends’s menu— fabulous grammatical errors and all— by clicking here.

  2. HA! I was giggling at their menu the other night. It sounds pretty good, nonetheless. Very diner-esque fare, should one not want to walk down to Triple Decker or beyond. The only thing I noticed was no operating hours. Also: what is a paladar? 🙂

  4. The folks who run this place— especially the young woman who usually mans the counter— are really nice people. In addition, their fare is nice for the price. For these reasons I feel a little bad about making light of their menu. However, “served on a toasted bum” is just too damned hard to pass up!

Tell me what you're thinking...
