Lunch today was excellent in every respect except the food.

 

I had arranged to meet a recent acquaintance to discuss some potential  professional cooperation. She chose the restaurant. We spent an hour talking, not so much about business, but everything else besides - language, food, Chinese politics, visiting Japan, cameras, internet issues, family ...

 

The place was supposedly Hong Kong food. Very little on the menu was Hong Kong cuisine, and the dishes which were recognisably HK by name were odd in execution.

 

I had been there several years ago and it was good. Disappointing. Also, disappointing for my friend, who had also been before and enjoyed it.

 

I had a bowl of wonton noodles, a Hong Hong classic. They were a disaster. Insipid soup. Three shrimp wontons (if shrimp wontons are meant to have the texture boiled golf balls - they were almost inedible). The noodles were apparently rejects from the cheapest, nastiest instant noodle brand.

 

Her dish was no better, but she liked the milk tea.

 

The meal cost ¥58 (around $8.70 USD) . Not a huge amount, but I'm sure the ingredients couldn't have cost more than about ¥3 ($0.45) . When I asked for the bill, I was curtly told to go to the cash desk at the other side of the fairly large restaurant,  while two wait staff stood nearby gossiping about other staff members, unaware that I could understand them. So wonderful service, too.

 

No doubt they think they will be redeemed by offering this nonsense on their menu.

The Chinese says "Light Bulb Milk Tea"

 

No, we didn't order it.

I tried my hand at rice rolls the other day for lunch.  It's quite easy.  Mix rice and tapioca flour.  Cook in a cake pan in a big steamer. I filled these with dried shrimp and topped with sweet soy sauce.

Another lunch from last week.  Duck leg confit poutine sans cheese curds.   Air fryer fries.  And, I think there is some spinach at twelve o'clock.

Cast iron skillet at med-high - doesn't take long, these, maybe five minutes.  Rest five minutes and they finish quite well.  Served with avocado, scallion and grapefruit salad w/pink peppercorn.

First grilling of the year.  Sunny and warm weather in DC area.  Wild rockfish that fell apart after grilling but was very tasty.  Roasted turnips on the side.  Sauce was inspired by romanesco (garlic, peppers, chilies, bread).

I have grandkids, so when my brain encounters "baby [anything]" it automatically fills in the obligatory "doo doo doo doo doo" afterwards.

Gut bomb day. A chili pie and onion rings from Sonic, with a Route 44 Diet Coke and a handful of Starburst jelly beans. 

 

And four Rolaids.

I cooked the last corned beef from the freezer a few nights ago, to make room for another dozen or so. Lunch today was a no brainer.
