Lau Pa Sat: Now, THIS is a food court.
No guarantees on how much MSG you’re getting, but for around $4, nothing beats the variety of Singapore’s large hawker centers like this one. Continue reading
I liked cow stomach better when I thought it was squid
After several bites, I said something about the squid and Queenie said, “That’s not squid.” I can’t explain how it suddenly tasted bad – like slightly-spoiled meat – but it did. Continue reading

Mexican Food in Hong Kong: el Taco Loco
The term “Tex-Mex” would be more accurate here, but I’ll take what I can get. While I won’t be sitting down to chiles rellenos or tamales anytime soon, Taco Loco filled the Tex-Mex shaped hole in my belly last night. I found El Taco Loco at #4 on this list, located close by, at the … Continue reading
In her interview, Chip mentioned “laksa” as something she misses most about Singapore. If you’re like me, you thought, “(Latka?) No wait…what’s ‘laksa’?”

Friday French Lunch
Went to La Crêperie for lunch today for breton galettes (thin buckwheat pancakes with various toppings). It’s right around the corner from work: G/F, 69 Jervois St., Sheung Wan. Look, Rico came with us! (And he let me photograph his lunch.) I learned the phrase, “sek TSI la-lay” which is not at all polite, so don’t do … Continue reading

My coworkers have an app that sends certain local lunch menus to their phones. Today’s looked like this: They tell me in basic terms what the choices are and we order lunch. Today Rico explained, “This one’s fried fish… this one’s chicken chest…”
Weekend meal-outings and Ian. (video!)
