What am I longing for, you may ask?!
Chinese food....good Chinese food.
I am so surprised in a place like where I live, very cosmopolitan, very hip, very trendy...
there is not ONE single good Chinese food restaurant in sight. Not even one that comes close...and trust me, there are only less than a handful to try anyways!
Last night we went to see Angels and Demos, (highly entertaining), and then for dinner. I was craving lettuce wraps and orange spiced beef, or sweet and sour chicken....or anything that slightly resembled what we used to eat from the Chinese food joints in the US and even in Venezuela!
But nope....I find the sushi here (I know that is Japanese, but hey, here they combine it all!) to be gummy and not really made with fresh seafood. Then we ordered some beef and vegetable wakisobi dish....it was edible. But the flavors and taste are just nothing resembling ANY Asian dish that I have ever tasted.
So, I long for June when I can go and savor my lettuce wraps, orange spiced beef, sweet and sour chicken, spring rolls, shrimp fried rice, sticky rice, beef and broccoli, chicken and veggies.....
