Soh Ang and I had dinner at Congee Village, a Chinese restaurant on the Lower East Side. We went there to have lobster. The lobster was not boiled or steamed but sauteed and served on a bed of ginger and scallions. Unusual but tasty.
We as well had a chicken dish with rice and mushrooms in a wooden box and what should have been soup dumplings. There was no soup in them though because it all came out when we picked them out of the bamboo basket.
Before we met I took another tour at the Tenement Museum – Irish Outsiders – and had a beer at the Grey Lady right next to the museum while I waited for Soh Ang. That’ a nice place to have a beer. Not just men are sitting at the bar.
When I got home at night we got talking and talked until midnight, so I didn’t find time to write a proper post. In the morning I was busy with room search, so no time again. Now I am just in between a quick lunch and getting out with Rachel to meet Noel and her father for Oysters and a show. Busy times!
