Baoguette Fail + Deli News

Delivery orders are done by text messaging, that should have been my first clue. Texted my order at 11:50 and received no confirmation, call, etc. The restaurant phone number when straight to voicemail; I left a voicemail and an email. By 1:20 I sent them a text retracted the order. NOT OK TO STARVE PEOPLE, especially not me- I get cranky!! BOOOOO Baoguette how could you do this to me. Especially after tempting me at the Village Voice Choice Eats with your sloppy bao-goodness.

This forced me to go get my pre Passover sandwich craving elsewhere. I went to Best of the West Deli on 371 w 34th st, right on the corner of 8th. I had a very passable chicken parm hero, which was large for under $7. But more importantly I noticed this sign out front hawking roti with curried meats!!! OOOO Apparently they are experimenting with this Wednesdays and Fridays and you must call ahead to place your order. The number is 212 290-0048. I am intrigued... must attempt next week when Passover ends.
