Need to see if a friend has a waffle iron so I can try this... wish restaurants would serve these!
The kitchen is cute! It looks very homey.
Wow! Love the redesign, guys! The color scheme is much easier on the eyes and the navigation is far better organized.
Fascinating, extremely well-researched article - very necessary. Thanks for being thoughtful and avoiding the rhetorical shortcuts of extremists on either side of the issue.
@SqueezeBottle I just checked. It looks fine to me - not sure if it's a font issue. You can always print out the image on this page. Anyone else having this issue?
@exflexitarian I could have sworn I put that on the map! Not sure if I accidentally cropped it off or something, but yes, it's at the southernmost part of the map. It is listed in the links as "Lanzhou Noodle"
Yum! I've also heard Costco rumors... gotta check that out.
Aww, good to see that Leah got a delicious sendoff! (and I love the Robyn anthropomorphic-ness)
Thanks for reading guys, so happy I've encouraged you to experience the wonder of the Golden Shopping Mall!
Don't forget to see the followup post about all 11 stalls in the basement:
These look gorgeous! Wish you were here to bring them into the office for sampling!
@geckostar Thanks for the translation clarification! (and I was debating what food to compare them to... there are so many cultures with bread-things sometimes filled with protein-things so it was hard.)
Oh man, this is what SE was missing all along.
@BrooklynBrownie The places that listed closing times were generally around 9-10pm, so you can definitely make a dinner out of it!
I have not had those, but if anyone else has, feel free to chime in.
@famdoc Unfortunately, I don't think it'd be practical to order every last dish on the menu to figure out if it contains meat... but if you bring a slip of paper that says something like, "我不能吃肉。你能帮我推荐素菜或是海鲜吗？” （"I can't eat meat. Can you recommend vegetarian or seafood dishes?") That should do the trick.
@MyInnerFatty They're not a restaurant - it's actually packaged foods!
I honestly don't know! But I'd love to hear if anyone else has any input. Halo-halo anyone?
That's gorgeous! Do you know where I could get some in Flushing?
Chichi, thanks for this! Your recipes always make me want to run to the nearest Asian grocery store. Both of these recipes sound amazing - dry fried green beans has been a childhood favorite since forever.
@Larikatz What makes you think Kenji would take on a feminine moniker like "Sue Veed"? ;)
@Ratbuddy Since the mustard is a condiment and the lettuce doesn't contribute much, I focused on the three main ingredients. Note that "three" doesn't include the bread! :)
Hmm, so I love those containers, too (the proper tupperware kind is finicky and not all the lids fit on each other) but I was wondering if the plastic leeches onto food? Microwave safety? I used to work at a chemical company and would hear scientists go on tirades about plastic water bottles, so just a little wary.
@ksalisbury warms my heart to know someone else is also a big baobing fan!
@philosykos I think Jojo Taipei and Blue Asia (down the street) have had the best shaved ices so far... try Blue Asia if you don't like JoJo's so much. I have not exhaustively tried to find the best shaved ice though! I also live in Cambridge so let me know if you find something awesome!
@Sam Forgot to include that! Good call... I'll blame it on heat exhaustion/too many beans.
@cuprien No idea, but looks like something I'll keep an eye out for!
