Govinda's Vegetarian CanteenOn the northern edge of Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, a large Hare Krishna temple stands as an anomaly, surrounded by dollar pizza joints and public welfare offices. Judging by the outside, you would never know that theres a vegetarian lunch canteen insidea neighborhood spot unspoiled by guidebooks, most of which wouldnt be interested in such a modest, unglamorous place anyway. But for Hindu devotees, neighborhood residents, and office workers, Govindas is a convenient spot to get a cheap, healthy, and delicious vegetarian lunch in keeping with the Hare Krishna principles of nonviolence and service to god (Krishna) through vegetarianism.Step inside and head down the stairs to the basement, where large round tables and folding chairs sit atop a clashing red and green linoleum floor. A small buffet station is set up at one end of the room, opposite a painting depicting the Hindu gods. The dcor is clearly not a priority, but thats not why youre here. Youre here for the homemade samosas, roasted zucchini, tofu, and quinoa salad. The menu changes daily, and the cooks only serve fresh vegetarian foodboth Indian and continental. A plate with your choice of three buffet items will leave you full for $6, and the proceeds support the temple.Located at305 Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn.9. PulqueriaLooking for an unmarked subterranean Mexican restaurant in the middle of Chinatown' Probably not, but now that you know it exists, you want to see it for yourself, dont you' Your first challenge is finding Doyers Streetthe narrow curving lane off the Bowery where the original Gangs of New York held court. Down here, most restaurant signs are a mix of Chinese and English. But youre not looking for a sign, because Pulqueria doesnt have one. Instead, look for the doorway with the white and cerulean zig zag pattern.The restaurant takes its name from pulque, a spirit made from fermented agave nectar. The Aztecs drank pulque, and today pulquerias all over Mexico serve it, but its extremely rare in New York City. Taken straight up, it tastes a bit sour. For something a bit more palatable, try the curadospulque mixed with tequila or mezcal and fresh fruit like mango, tamarind or coconut. They pair well with the tapas-style menu of light bites, like the ceviches and tuna tostada, served with avocado, chipotle mayo and crispy onion.Located at11 Doyers Street, Manhattan.8. United Nations Delegates Dining HallAlthough the United Nations Headquarters can be visited on guided tours, one of the best kept secrets is the Delegates Dining Room. Despite what its name suggests, the restaurant is also open to the public with advance reservation. The Dining Room re-opened in 2014 following extensive renovations to the General Assembly building, the first update since theUnited Nations complex opened in 1952. The buffet format at the Dining Room means that youll be brushing past and sitting amidst ambassadors, dignitaries and delegates, all while taking in impressive views of the East River, Roosevelt Island, and Long Island City. Plus, you get an escort throughthe main hall on the way there who functions almost like a guide.The entrance to the Delegates Dining Room is like a step back in time to the mid-20th century. Floor to ceiling wooden beams flank the opening where youll be confronted first by the long buffet spread. Inside, the decor is not particularly impressive, but the views from the nearly floor-to-ceiling windows are.The internationally inspired buffet is prepared by an executive chef and changes daily.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
