How Food Bloggers Eat Lunch: Susan Eats London Eats New York With Me!

    Consider me impressedโ€”and jealous! But next time we come to New York, Steve and I want you to do Chinese with us. OK, we know you’re “illiterate” and all, but we also know you can at least talk to somebody and say “We want what that table over there is having. And these round eyes with me really mean it.” (Steve, in particular, will eat anything. Except liver. He actually loves intestines.)

      You are too funny! Deal. You guys come to New York, and we’ll get super fat together!

      It would be my pleasure to show off my baby-Chinese to you! I grew up bilingual, but ever since my grandmother passed, I don’t get a lot of practice anymore except when it comes to ordering food. I grew up in Chinatown, so almost all the restaurants I go to now are the same ones that I have been to my whole life. My grandmother was such a fixture at some of them, that sometimes the staff forgets she’s gone and they ask me why they haven’t seen her in a while.

      And because my speaking skills have degenerated so much, I can only say, “Grandma! DIE!”

      Sometimes I remember the word for “ALREADY,” and throw that in there. Can you imagine the reaction!

      But we would have so much fun! Come to NYC!

        I can barely restrain myself from buying plane tickets right now. Your “baby-Chinese” trumps my 3-phrase vocabulary of “Hello,” “Thank you” and “Happy New Year!” (That’s “Gung Hao Fat Choy,” right?), and you’d better believe we’re coming to NYC for Chinese ASAP. Hopefully we’ll run into the kindly grandmother we shared a table with last time we were in the city, so I can find out why she was so impressed I use chopsticks left-handed. I’m very glad “already” is part of your lexicon, since “Where’s my crispy pig intestines, already?” may be one of the things you’ll have to say on my behalf.

          You should! If you guys come to New York, it will be . . . wait for it . . . legendary!

          I do have to say though that Chinese people are always impressed when non-Asians use chopsticks. It’s kind of like watching monkeys sing opera. A left-hander? Like a monkey singing opera backwards!

          I will totally teach you how to say “Maternal Grandma! Die! Already!” That way you can add it to you lexicon ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Everything looks so yummy! Is that fresh corn on a stick with a mayo/Parm cheese/ paprika dressing? I used to love those when I lived in Chicago. Very jealous of you two! ๐Ÿ™‚

      It’s called elote and it’s Mexican corn on the cob on a stick!

      Picture roasted corn slathered with butter AND mayonnaise, then rolled in Mexican Cotija or grated Parmesan, dusted with chili powder and spritzed with lime!

      It is messy and awesome. I know you want one ๐Ÿ™‚

    OMG – This is an exciting post.
    I’m recognising one thing in this food pic (the sandwich) – everything else is a whole new food adventure.

    Chinatown? I’m there so long as I don’t have to eat chickens feet. Grandma! Die!

    • baconbiscuit212

      We are going to have so much fun!

      I can just think of all the things you need to try: pastrami sandwiches, New York Pizza, lobster rolls, Southern Fried Chicken!

      Bring stretchy trousers!!!

      Isn’t it awesome? It’s Mexican corn on the cob called elote.

      Basically, roasted corn slathered with butter AND mayonnaise, then rolled in Mexican Cotija or Parmesan, dusted with chili powder and spritzed with lime!

      And it comes on a stick ๐Ÿ™‚

      Does that make you want it more?

    “Susan Eats London” has the same middle name as “Bunny Eats Design” ๐Ÿ™‚

    I soooo want to come to NY to eat with you BaconBiscuit. Back to back nom noms. Did you feel the occupational hazards of a food critique? So little time so many, many things to eat. Where would you even begin with eating in NY? I have a whole wardrobe of stretchy pants, and I even collect cute dresses that could double for maternity dresses. The Koala is a left-handed, non-asian who can weild a pair of chopsticks. It’s surprising how eloquent a monkey singing opera backwards can sound.

    That corn on a stick looks like a powdered donut from here.

    • baconbiscuit212

      You should! Everyone should come and visit me so we can eat this town from top to bottom!

      I think that you and me must have similar looking wardrobes. I dispensed with waistbands long ago and live in leggings and A-line dresses! I have also had friends who have told me that if I ever get knocked up, I won’t have to buy new things ๐Ÿ˜›

      I think that my family has thought that all of my boyfriends are like monkeys singing opera. First, they seem surprised that they like Chinese food. Then, they all get applauded when they successfully use chopsticks. It never seems to get old with my family . . .

      And that is a great idea: donuts on sticks!

    Viewing this post I want the corn right now!!!!!!! I also want to eat Chinese food with you and Michelle and Steve! I am working on my NY blog posts. They are tough going. Jetlag makes me stupid!

    • baconbiscuit212

      You are totally invited to join Michelle, Steve and me for Chinese!

      Actually, a friend of mine and I are going to check out Mission Chinese for lunch. I have heard so much about the original in SF, and am looking forward to seeing if the NYC branch lives up to the hype. Will let you know how it goes!

      Jetlag makes me stupid too. It takes me almost a week to recover!

    • baconbiscuit212

      Mission Chinese was sick crazy good. Omg. Best meal I have had in a while. Danny Bowien was there! Wonder for how much longer . . .

      Wil post about it soon. Took pics, but they are kind of blurry because I was so excited ๐Ÿ™‚
