his comfort fcxxJ eatery has been warming
the hearts and bellies of Reedies and other
Wixxlstcx:k ItKals for years. The decor is
kitsch galore: wall-size nature photography
mixed with funky, bright paintings, red vinyl
Ixxiths and chrome kitchenette tables. Try the
spicy blackened catfish, made by “putting tire
on cayenne." Garlic cheese grits and veggie col-
lard greens on the side will give your tongue a
i respite, as will the 40-ounce Kittle of Pabst
brought to you in a bucket of ice. New Orleans
red beans and rice with andouille sausage is
another favorite, along with jamhalaya, "Better
T han Mom’s Fried C hicken” and “Nana’s
Chicken &. Dumplings.” As if you hadn’t had
enough butter and starch by now, you can top it
all off with pecan or marionberry pie a la rmxle.

our Marc Jacobs shirt at the cleaners? Well,
then, you’re ready to abandon the Pearl for
a night and discover the rexits of the finest
Vietnamese cuisine in town. Head out to 82nd
I Avenue and join Vietnamese families and
other neighKirhtxxl locals for 11 different vari­
eties of pho— beef or chicken broth with rice
noodles, onion, ginger and herbs, served with
fresh bean sprouts, basil, chili pepper and lime.
I went with the “pho chin” (slices of lean
brisket), bypassing the soups with tendon, tripe
or fatty brisket. Also on the menu are a num ­
ber of grilled meat and seafcxxl entrees served
with rice or mxxllcs. Meals complemented by a
nice “smh to K»” (avocado smoothie) or “mux:
da ch an h ” (fresh lime juice) will have your
taste buds singing. Pho Van is no place for veg­
etarians, but two carnivorous queers can dine
i until they're bursting for less than $30.

or all you deprived Krispy Kreme lovers, I
have gixxl news: There is a second best out
there— way out there— in Sandy! Jtx’s
Donut Shop is situated conveniently on High­
way 26 (excellent fueling stop on your way to a
big hike or ski). The bright little red-and-white
building borders a nice urban park, where you
can take your fried, sugared dough and stuff
your face surrounded by nature. The menu
changes daily, hut certain standards abide:
glazed old fashioned, apple fritters, cinnamon
twists, jelly filled, powdered, blueberry. Be
advised: The ever-popular bear claws are usual­
ly gone by 9 a.m. T he soft, airy, buttery, sweet
gixxlness just melts in your mouth.
