My hotel was near The Halal Guys’ cart(s) on 53rd and 6th and every time I walked past them it smelled so damn good that the last day I stood in line and tried it.

Still have chocolate and eggs and flour so giving David Lebovitz’s chocolate tart recipe a go. (The Chef John souffles yesterday were wonderful.
I don’t want to leave the house and just happen to have all the ingredients to make this.
