Fatty’s on Ditmars in Astoria.
Because of fried cheese and crisp tostones (fried plantains) and sausages and fried onions that have the power to turn anti-onion people into pro-onion people. Oh, and mojitos so delicious that you’ll want to order that second and a third until you realize that after standing up, one was quite enough, thankyouverymuch (#lightweightAKAcheapdate).
Also, I spied the girl next at the next table eating the two most perfect pancakes I’ve ever seen. Watching her pour the syrup on them was like porn for me.
