There won't be any Pho Hoa Binh food. I am not sure about My Thanh yet-- update closings/asian parties here. Beware of fireworks in Little Sucky.

I went out for the annual dim sum lunch with a bunch of coworkers yesterday. Every year I go, eat a couple of quivering mystery blobs, and then remember that I don't actually like dim sum at all (besides char siu bao - steamed BBQ pork buns). Unfortunately, since I live in Vancouver and work with a bunch of Chinese ladies, the lunar new year is kind of a big deal and i'd feel rude and un-PC to be the only one to skip out. I bet I'm not the only one who thinks it, though.

Any other dim sum haters? I'm really not a fan of a lot of Chinese food, besides the really spicy Szechuan or black bean-y kind. Too greazy & starchy.

They like to be referred to as Orientals.

Watch "The Untold Story" for Chinese New Year. Anthony Wong plays a restauranteur in Macau that serves people in his dim sum. Chinese title: Human Pork Buns. True story.

I love dim sum. Shiu mai, har gow, crab claw, taro cake, pea tips, pork-stuffed eggplant, baos, it's all good. There used be a place on Clement in SF that had all-you-can-eat dim sum for like $9 on Saturdays. And it was all fresh. You could keep picking stuff off the carts until you were hallucinating. I cried when it closed.

It's the year of the dog. Last weekend, I went to Chinese new year festival in Oakland Chinatown and the Tet festival in Oakland's New Chinatown, which is actually mostly Vietnamese. Lots of crazy high-pitched singing and dudes selling that stuffed banana leaf thing. Not at all touristy like the one in SF.

Had the best dim dum in my life today at the Vegetarian Dim Sum House in Chinatown. Jesus christ it was good. Stuffed for $5.75.
