[NYC - NoHo] Mile End Delicatessen - Poutine Happy Hour

Have you ever heard of a poutine happy hour? That's right. Mile End Delicatessen has half-price poutine during happy hour 5-7PM Tuesday through Friday (not open Mondays).

Mile End Delicatessen is a "reimagined Jewish deli." There are two locations: one in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn and the one I visited in NoHo, Manhattan. This location is pretty spacious and the design is very clean.

Mile End smokes its own meats, pickles its own vegetables, and has locally-baked breads, including bagels. You can eat-in or take-out and also buy the smoked meats by the pound.

Mile End also often hosts many quirky events (like Jewish Christmas Dinner) and also provides catering services.

We went for the poutine happy hour. They also offer $1 off beer during the happy hour, Tuesday through Friday 5-7PM. We decided to get two small-size poutines - one traditional and one smoked meats poutine. The smoked meat poutine is originally $13 and the traditional was originally $9.

The fries were very crispy even though they were covered with gravy and cheese. The smoked meats one was my favorite out of the two. The thick-cut smoked meats added an extra dimension of flavor for the poutine. Both were really heavy, as to be expected. Getting two was a bit of a miscalculation on our parts...that was a lot of food. Even alone, I'm sure this was enough food for an entrée, so getting this as a snack was a bit greedy.

The meat was the real winner of this dish for me. It was smoked and spiced just right and was still quite tender. I am sure that it would be great in a sandwich or on a burger. They offer some decent lunch set menu items and have a seemingly booming take-out business.

I am interested in going back and trying out their sandwich menu, brunch menu, or even their weekly Chinese dinner (just for kicks).

NoHo, Manhattan: 53 Bond Street (4, 6, 6X to Bleeker Street)
Boerum Hill, Brooklyn: 97A Hoyt Street (A, C, G to Hoyt-Schermerhorn)

Mile End Delicatessen has developed a cookbook to allow you to make some of your Jewish food favorites at home. Super useful for those of us who don't live near a Jewish deli.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
