    Hm, I don't think they are. But that photo looks like it's from Totokaelo, so you can ask them.

    Margiela has two main side zips. There's the pre-Galliano one, which has a thin sole and low heel. Then there's the Campus boot, which has a Cuban heel, thicker sole, slightly squarer toe, and more prominent toe box

    The ones in the photo you posted don't have a Cuban heel, the toe box is a bit dropped, and the last looks a touch sleeker.

    Hủ tiếu Nam Vang. But I've never had a good one outside someone's home - getting the soup to work requires too much effort, only a mother will bother.

    I'm not sure about this, it was received knowledge that could very well be inaccurate, but Japan was a lot more fascinated by and open to the West at the beginning of the 20th, and also had more influences. Hong Kong was a British protectorate, so it's unlikely that there would have been strong direct French influences. That said, the dish may very well have indirect French roots. I mean, it eats like an Escoffier dish seen through English and American eyes and transmitted to Asian cooks. When I first went to China, in the 80s, before the current growth, I was served some bizarre things like fried eyes (fried on high head, of course), that were dosed in soy sauce, just like thick chinese rice noodles might be.

    There are other things that point to the dish being more British in origin than French, like the fact that the same cafes invariably serves Hong Kong style milk tea, rather than coffee.(a later addition), but I certainly wouldn't place a large bet on the exact origins of the dish.

    Its heritage is certainly much less clear than say, that numerous spam dishes that are in found in Hawaiian and Hong Kong cafe restaurants.
