Feasting at Fish N Ting

I haven’t spent a whole lot of time in Eastchester. Not having a car/ hating driving/hating  buses makes a bit difficult for me to get there, but there are definitely some gems up there. I was recently introduced to one – Fish N’ Ting. Located on bustling Boston Road, it’s easy to zoom right past it, but that would be a huge mistake.

The first thing you should do is request to sit outside. There’s a beautiful deck that’s enclosed during the winter and has heaters so you get the best of both worlds.

I ordered the rasta pasta with shrimp that was a massive portion and a henny colada. Usually I would side eye any place that has henny coladas, but they were very good. And very strong. I also had some of the rum punch, which was also delicious. My friends ordered the special which was a whole red snapper, which was amazing. I know I need to return soon to have one all to myself instead of just a bite. We also had absolutely no room for dessert, so I definitely need to come back and treat myself.

You can check them out on Yelp or Instagram.

Happy Hours on Happy Hours

This week I found myself at two beautiful Bronx bars for happy hour.

Tuesday, I met up with a friend to catch up at Pine Bar & Grill on Eastchester Rd. Every time I come here and see the elegant decor, I always wonder why I don’t come here more often. They have a really great rooftop as well, perfect for enjoying a cocktail on a summer night. But, alas, it wasn’t open when we were there. We ordered the mango mojitos, which were delicious and not too minty. My friend ordered the fish tacos, while I had the Po’ Boy pulled pork sliders. Both of our dishes were flavorful and affordable, my favorite combination.

Last night, I caught up with another friend and we decided to check out the newest bar in Norwood, Lexa Bar.  With exposed brick walls, the wall adorned with the names of Bronx neighborhoods, I think I’ve finally found my local go-to bar. The bartender was super sweet and attentive. We started off with mojitos (….lot of mojitos this week!) which are $5 on Thursdays and ordered cheeseburgers. To be honest, I didn’t love the burger as it was a bit too salty, but they have a bunch of other items on their menu I’d love to try, from flatbread pizzas to salads and wraps. Best of all, I was able to stroll back home in ten minutes.
