Song, for a Song

Float like butterfly,
sting like a bee! …

When Mohammed Ali, aka-Cassius Clay uttered those famous words……perhaps it wasn’t the fight he was thinking about, but a more immediate, and primal urge. It was the need to feed!

Food City Bytes spent a delightful morning with Aimee strolling through the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and taking pictures. Thinking originally that we’d circle back afterward to go to Cheryl’s on Underhill in Prospect Heights, we realized that there were a cash only place which would be a little tight. So we headed into Park Slope…..

….and settled on Song:

First we had the Fried Tiger Shrimp rolls:

The shrimp on this we actually straightened! Which we found hilarious and odd. Also, it was between this and the spring rolls and we actually thought this would be something more like shrimp dumplings….or some sort of ground up shrimp combination with vegetables and then fried. It was still good, just unexpected.

I ordered the Pad See Yue with chicken which is a sauteed flat noodle with chinese vegetable and egg in a brown sauce. This was perfect (great comfort food) and really filling. Odd thing was the lemon on the side…..guess they ran out of limes? They work very quickly at Song though so it was VERY hot when it came out! Be careful not to dig in too quickly!!!

Aimee ordered the Mango Gai Yang which is a grilled quarter chicken with mango salad and sticky rice:

Aimee liked her dish. I have to say though….the salad was the best part here..the mango and cucumber worked surprisingly well together. Very light and fresh.

So for about $20 we both ate and were full. If you;re in search of a bargain….in a discoteca environment(!?) with dim lighting and pounding music, Song’s your place. Great for a casual get together.
