On a whim, I headed out with Jimmy to Sunset Park to go karaoke with his friends. We stopped over at No.1 Ice Cream because I liked the name. We chatted up the ice cream chef. Turns out she makes the ice cream there herself and some of the recipes she’s still tweaking. It’s cool to see real homemade ice cream and it’s real cool to eat. bhwahawaappa! I liked the Taro ice cream the best after a few different tastings. I can’t really explain what it taste like. I guess like Taro, but it’s better than it sounds.
Then over to H858 Corp for Handpulled Noodle takeout. This place opens till midnight and looks like it attracts the youthful crowd around that time. I got the Pork Bone Handpulled noodle soup, which probably doesn’t execute so well for take out. The noodles took on the form of the styrofoam container. The pork bones didn’t have too much meat on them, but Cathy’s dog sure enjoyed it. Jimmy got some kind of ground meat with noodles from a picture he pointed at on the menu. That was pretty good. I liked the fried dumplings the best. Delicious. Got a little soggy from the to-go container though. All-in-all, probably better to have this food to-stay at the restaurant.
One of the friends had brought over a few chicken tacos from the a taco cart a few blocks away. Those were really tasty. The chicken was super salty, but it makes for good late night drunk snack.
Then we went to 100 Fun – super high-tech Neon lit Asian karaoke bar. It was like Tron meets Don Johnson meets Sammo Hung meets Wham! We got a private room while the crowded bar area was singing Asian songs. The system had a lot of old and really new songs (with corresponding official music videos). You can turn the real vocals off and on. Pretty impressive. I must’ve been there for a few hours and tried to leave what I thought was appropriate, but they were trying to say my cut would only be around $12, even with my beer. I couldn’t believe it and I couldn’t believe my new song is that Aerosmith song from Armageddon.
