hong kong station in chinatown…

January 17, 2006

happy new year……….?
i know, it’s already 17th… well… doesn’t fee like new year or what-so-ever…
hmm… everything is blur… what did i do… for last couple of weeks… months… year…!!!
i started this year by losing my only phone… which i found a week later… in my laundry bag… ah, yah…
for those who love chinese (hong kong, to be exact) noodle soup and wouldn’t mind fatty, weird meat parts… there’s a great make-your-own-noodle place… on hester between chrystie and bowery… called hong kong station… there are 9(!) different kinds of noodle you can choose from for $1, then you choose what to put in your big bowl of soup… among 28 (!!!) choices of toppings are fish balls, curry squid, chicken wings, pig’s skin, pig’s blood, vegetable, mushroom, fish cake, beef stew, beef stomach… and even spam…! each topping costs $1… so it can be pretty damn cheap… the broth was soooooo tasty and all the sauce they put in to season was fantastic… also their special drink is cold lemon and honey drink and it was just perfect between each sip to cool down your mouth… yum… i’m going back!!!

Anyhow, I have been playing it alot and trying to pass on the good word. Keep up the good work.Paul
