Just got a little giddy over this Japanese treat at Hibino LIC.  It’s a strawberry dorayaki—a stack of two wonderfully spongy pancakes stuffed with a smear of sweet red bean paste, halved strawberries, and a generous scoop of green tea ice cream.  10-70 Jackson Avenue, LIC

There’s something really delicious about the De Mole Nachos at De Mole in Woodside. When you’re craving Mexican food and want a taste of everything, the nachos are a good place to start. Guacamole, black beans, pico de gallo, and sour cream. There’s a whole lot of flavor in this one.

Why go nuts with green walls and complicated climate control systems when you can just fill your garage with hanging potted plants? The owner of a taxi hub in Queens thought along the same lines when he decided to stuff his mechanic’s shop with around 1,000 plants. His reasoning? Cleaner air. Since all of his cars are hybrids already, he’s just doubling up on a good effort.
Before you ask, yes, every plant is hand-watered twice a week—which sounds like a full-time job in itself. —MN
