Henan Taste

went to Henan Flavor for lunch today. my students SWARM the place at lunch--not to eat the delectable Henan delights, but because the restaurant (wisely) keeps a gross-looking shitty tray of "pepper chicken" and "sesame chicken" in the front near the cash register, which they sell for like $2 for a styrofoam container + rice.

I got the black bean hu mei (with ground meat, bok choy, etc.) in a super dark, flavorful broth. even with the hot oil they provided, it's not as spicy as I'd like (I like Szechuan-level spice), but it was really good and only $5 for the giant large size.

I did NOT try the swine blood...this time.
