I want to try real Thai cuisine, i.e. go to Thailand to try it! I've heard the street food is beyond delicious

Chocolate molten cake: sounds fancy but it's actually super easy to make

Crepes recipe?

Hmm I always skipped the resting period because I'm lazy and always in a rush to eat my crepes on a Sunday morning... Maybe I shouldn't!
I also saw something about putting beer in the batter to make the crepes thinner, have you guys tried that?

Has anybody here ever lived in Beijing?

I live right the East 3rd Ring Road (JinTaiXiZhao on Subway Line 10), it's in between Guo Mao and Sanlitun.
I have a Jenny Lou's in my residence, they're ok for pork or chicken but for fish they really just have a piece of salmon. I've never been to Jingkelong but I'd like to check it out because Jenny Lou's gets really expensive after a while.
I'm not sure where the nearest wet market is for me, but I need to find it because that's really the kind of place I'm looking for. I found a little market that had meat not far from home, but the hygiene conditions were really not great. I'm not asking for western standards, but when I bought some meat some pieces fell on the floor and he just threw everything in my bag anyway. The wet market I see on your blog looks good, I'd love to find a place like that, and if it was walking distance it would be even better.

What are you cooking?

Thomas Keller's pork tenderloin. It is just awesome.

Dinner options?

I don't usually eat sandwiches for dinner, more for lunch or brunch, but if I did I would use savory bread.
