I’m not a tease, the Asian posts are definitely coming soon. I promise. For now, read about my first night eating out after my vacation “Raising the Bar: Finger-Lickin’ Good at Bar Blanc Bistro” at Serious Eats: NY. I ate fried pig ears and a crostini with delicious Spanish anchovies. I’m bringing some offal love to Serious Eats.
It’s 5 a.m., but since I’m jet-lagged, I’m writing my last summer NYC post so I can get started on the Hong Kong, Seoul, and Beijing entries later on this week. I was trying to get it done while I was in Asia, but there was absolutely no time. Sight-seeing and eating takes a lot of work, and I have the blisters — but fortunately no abdominal woes — to prove it.
At the height of the summer, what seems like ages ago, David and I set sail on a ferry to Governors Island (Ferries leave on the weekends from the Battery Maritime Building at 10 South Street.

I’m leaving Seoul for Beijing in a few hours, and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to go online safely to write a post, so until then, content yourself with “Raising the Bar: Finding Venice in Chinatown at Bacaro – NYC” on Serious Eats: NY. I get romantic with some cuttlefish in Chinatown.
I’m in Seoul right now, but read my latest post “Raising the Bar: Satisfyingly Gut-Busting Fare at One and One” on Serious Eats: New York. I get my Irish on with Fish & Chips and Bangers & Mash.
After twelve years since my last visit, I’m going back to the motherland: Seoul, South Korea. Or as I like to say, ‘Where the magic happened!’ I’ll also be traveling to Hong Kong and Beijing. After much drama at the Chinese embassy on Friday, immediately followed by a bizarre case of food poisoning from a harmless looking gyro, I didn’t think it would happen, but thankfully, I just touched down in Hong Kong.
