Headed down to Sunset Park with Todd and Audrey to eat some dim sum and so Todd could pick up his childhood lunch box from a guy’s trunk. The East Harbor Seafood Palace is a large and crowded banquet hall. I tried to teach my friends what to listen out for when they call our number in Chinese –“sup ee ho.” Then after a 20 minute wait, they called our number in English –“12!”
For only $12 each after tip, we ate pretty well including a couple of beers. I was surprised they ate the Chinese chicken feet with me. I was also surprised Todd wanted and already knew about the turnip cake, “lo bak go.” He might be as Chinese as me. Or more likely, I’m as white as him.
