A revisit to the Chinese/Latino restaurant, La Nueva Rampa. This time I dined-in and was able to get a wonton soup with my lunch special. It’s not available with take-out. Much better than the last few wonton soups I’ve had elsewhere. I ordered the big fried pork chop lunch special with plantains after looking at another guy eating it. It’s huge, tough (not tender) to eat, but tasted alright. A pretty good value for all that food at $7.08, plus tip. I like the oxtail stew better from my last visit a year ago.
There was a Chinese waiter speaking in Spanish to a customer. The old manager yelling an order into a mic/intercom at the front to the kitchen. The radio playing Tracy Morgan standup …that is until I realized there were two radio stations going on, the other playing Enrique Iglesias. And then I realized all that Tracy Morgan I heard throughout my meal was a guy eating at the counter. It could’ve been Tracy. He was wearing a hood.
