One day in NYC, we met up with Mark's friend Lucca and his girlfriend Cristelle, both of whom live in Italy, and we couldn't decide what to eat. Somewhere into the conversation, Mark said, "How about Chinatown?" and everyone nodded in agreement, though in truth we had no idea where to go in Chinatown, or what to eat other than some notion of dim sum.
As we wandered around Chinatown looking for a place that served on dim sum on a Tuesday (or whatever day it was), we found the world's cheapest assortment of seafood, both fresh and dried.
Finally we found a dim sum place, and Mark being Mark, when the cart arrived, he valiantly stated, "We'll have everything." And this made Lucca's eyes pop out.
Our waiter explained what everything was.
Where Mark's machismo really showed through was... the chicken's feet.
We are brave eaters, but I wasn't super stoked to try the chicken's foot. What do you even do with it? Where do you start? Well, I can now tell you that there is not a lot of meat on that thing, and your best bet is to go straight to the sole of the foot. Other than that, it's just a bony mess. (It's pretty tasty, though. But a lot like Shake Shack, not worth the effort.)
Aside from the chicken's feet, everything was fantastically delicious. And after lunch, we wandered around some more, accidentally bumping into the NYC outpost of my LA studio, and the mecca of all Chinese imports, Pearl River Mart.
Check out all the finds from Pearl River Mart after the jump.
Lots and lots of everything...
This gorgeous sake set came home with us.
