    God help us all. The man went to Lanzhou once and is now an expert on what real authentic traditional Lanzhou beef lamian is.

    Well when you have relatives from that area and grow up eating their home-cooked food, it's not hard to differentiate between good and bad, mate.

    I was also just referring to any 牛肉拉面 here in the city; LanZhou "style" just happens to be the most well-known. Most Chinese people grow up eating this shit. You get a pretty good idea what's authentic and what tastes like ass after eating it for 20+ years.

    I applaud your discerning taste. You must feel very good about yourself. I mean your relatives must have fed you hand pulled tangmian at home all the time so of course we should look to you for what tastes like ass or not.

    it really was beautiful all weekend. A little warm mid-day, but the mornings and evenings have been awesome.


    spent an hour at dusk at the dog park with the pup. It was gorgeous out and she had a blast.

    Went to a great restaurant in Brooklyn Saturday night. It was called Traif. Some really unique combinations of flavors. Some fun wines too.

    when i checked the weather yesterday, it showed today as mostly clear. It wasn't aware that Manton would be back in town, so a storm/rain around roughly 5 PM is now in the forecast.

    I think the storm/raincloud IS Manton.

    Random NYC question: would showing up to Sushi Yasuda for lunch in casual attire (e.g. jeans and OCBD) be a) okay, b) less than ideal but still acceptable, c) frowned upon?
