It has been some time since I’ve posted about interesting food.
I am presently in my native place, which also happens to be a great food city. Yesterday I was delighted to go to one of my favorite Chinese spots in these USA (they have the best Shanghai xiao long bao I’ve had anywhere) with a old priest friend.
Pan fried noodles with chicken.
Shredded pork in garlic sauce.
I don’t remember exactly what this was called. It may be san xian. In any event it had both shrimp and scallops and, I think, squid or octopus. I didn’t have much of it, alas.
I was happy to get an actual fortune in my fortune cookie, rather than a platitude or admonishment. The poor cookie got this wrong, I think, but you can’t have everything, I guess.
And since I am in an Asian jag, I found a really good ramen place. Not quite on the same level as Tokyo, but this his the spot. I’d go back any time. (They need to put more effort into that egg, however. It was a bit anemic.) The dumplings were also super.
Now, off to a museum!
