If I’m in Chinatown and looking for a quick bite to eat (that’s not Asian food), then I’ll drop by Smile To Go. It’s a tiny cafe, the takeaway shop of The Smile, a restaurant in NoHo. Smile To Go is on one of those side streets I often walk along when I’m heading east away from SoHo. And what I usually order is the Maple Bacon Slider and a cup of tea (in this case, it was Mariage Frères’ Earl Grey). The slider is tasty but not filling enough if one wants a more substantial meal; for that, they do serve rotisserie chicken, salads and sandwiches as well.
I never mind a smaller portion if I know I’ll be looking for something sweet to eat later.
