Restaurant Review: Punjabi

Punjabi 114 East 1st Street (between 1st Avenue and Avenue A) East Village, Manhattan 212-533-3356 Vegiboys Rating (3/4) Punjabi is a narrow sliver of space, found half-underground on Houston Street across from the renowned Katz’s Delicatessen.

Restaurant Review: Ital Shak

Ital Shak 780 Nostrand Avenue (between Saint John’s Place and Sterling Place) Crown Heights, Queens 718-773-6502 Vegiboys Rating (2/4) The hole-in-the-wall Ital Shak is one of two vegetarian kitchens found on Nostrand Avenue in Crown Heights, though is best for a quick bite to-go.
