pretty good two weeks
spent a few days in San Francisco, had the best gelato I've had in the states, in long beach. salty caramel, pistachio, watermelon and grapefruit. also a pretty good pasta dish, cooked very firm, with a sauce of sausage, tomatos, capers, peppers and garlic. had some excellent corned beef hash, very lean, very nice ratio of onion.
also, in SF, had a chance to go out to dinner with Iamatt. aside from a very nice evening of conversation, some great beans, and a really excellent piece of roast pork. tasted a bit of Matt's grilled octopus starter which was outstanding.
2 days in Hong Kong - very nice dim sum: 2 types of roast pork buns, one fried one steamed, prawn dumplings, steamed lotus buns, mango crepe, something with liver and prawns, and maybe a few other things.
also, a very nice mooncake, and some pork curry noodles.
Manila - can't say I had anything really special there, my local partner took me to a weird japanese style coffee shop for lunch, ended up having what I have when I get stuck for a meal in tokyo airport, a breaded pork cutlet in curry sauce.
Singapore - 2 greats days there. ate one good meal at a fancy resteraunt - on the top floor of the pan pacific, including sharks fin soup, pork in strawberry sauce, steamed grouper, and peking duck (just the first part, with duck meat and pancakes). aside from that, ate all of my meals at hawker centers. had some great carrot cake, sate, some fantastic dumplings filled with peanuts and a few other things.
now I am Bangkok - just had some very nice dim sum, a little different, but good. had roast pork, served with a chili vinegar dipping sauce, and pickled pink ginger, like sushi. never had that before, nice touch. yesterday had some very nice pork with basil and chili, in the street.
