just a warning: i suspect that for the duration of my time at home, reconfigureasian is going to turn into a food blog (at least on my end), because all i ever want to do when i’m in new york is eat (and cheaply, at that).
this is hotpot at shanghai tide. there were 12 of us; that wasn’t even all the food we ordered. mmm.
after a meeting today, toby and i stopped by mei lai wah, a small eatery on bayard street in chinatown. we both got baked roasted pork buns (char siu bao, pictured) and shared a steamed roasted pork bun and fried dough rice noodle roll (which i just found out is called zhaliang–thanks, tobes). earlier today, we had congee with salted pork & preserved egg.
mm, i love being able to get two distinct meals for five dollars.
things to watch out for in upcoming posts:
– pictures of the bruise/bump/horn growing out of my head as a result of slamming a door into my face.
– a visit to paris sandwich bakery cafe and the chinatown ice cream factory
