The most cinematic interior in Chinatown is apparently under Health Department lockdown. Will they re-open like my once beloved Fay-Da?

Honestly, the grime here was part of the charm.

Not A Moment Too Soondubu

So after two days of feeling blue because congestion pricing died and trying to console myself, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

That’s right — I actually made soondubu for the first time, following a recipie I found online.

The verdict? Passable, but not nearly as good as Seoul Garden’s extra spicy combo. I’ll keep trying, and hopefully so will those in favor of congestion pricing.

I’m bummed that congestion pricing died in the State Assembly today, I’m trying to cheer myself up be focusing on things that give me pleasure, like the combo tofu stew with the side order of short ribs at Seoul Garden.

Ah, I feel a little better already. A little, anyway.

All The Time Is Ice Time

All The Time Is Ice Time

So today it’s sixty and people are still skating. I guess skate season goes longer than I thought. How do they keep the ice from melting?
