Imagine egg lotions on the soda fountain, an extended journey on the rattan seats of an old-timey subway automotive, then the mechanical horse races at Coney Island and a go to to Ebinger’s afterward, for blackout cake. See me in my peaky newsboy hat!

And for dinner beforehand, possibly Chinese roast pork on garlic bread? Steamed scorching canine with mustard and relish? I don’t know. Maybe only a wedge salad will suffice. I’ll get my protein from the massive glass of milk I’ll drink with the cake.

For Ham El-Waylly, nostalgia is a grilled cheese sandwich slathered with toum (above), a sauce made by combining garlic, lemon juice, salt and oil. The combination is one which recollects the akkawi cheese manakeesh sandwiches he used to eat as a youngster in Doha, Qatar. The toum packs a wallop, as in case you’d stuffed garlic bread with Muenster. So good.
