I tried to post these food pics on the midmo blog but the picture thing is acting up over there. Has anyone else had that problem?
Due to finally getting to see Personal and The Pizzas up close and personal, I've been rocking the Mosquitoes CD around my house, and I discovered this morning that you can access one of the best songs on the record, "Hong Kong Flu", online here.
Just wait for a sec and click on the play button on the right. I came thisclose to seeing if I could really buy a ringtone of it but when they texted the code to my phone it said it would cost ten bucks.
This blurry soup below is a new culinary fixation/sensation. Remember in my Quan Nemh Ninh Hoa article (yeah, right) when I said that when you go to that restaurant you get the nem nuong? Well, for the most part this is what everyone there is ordering but the other night I wanted a seafood soup so I got this delight. It has a delicate fish broth, peppery fish cake (JD do you know the name of this stuff?), hunks of hamachi (sometimes a little dry), and one little meatball that seems like a mix between fish and pork that is the treat to savor. You can choose between rice noodles or udon, which is cool. The udon version is $5.99 and it's a full meal!And the fish are back in the vases on the table! This picture also shows the funny condiment trays with the raw garlic cloves and chiles.
