>Our little world tour

September 22, 2010 § Leave a comment

After viewing the Yoshitomo Nara exhibit at Asia Society, Veronica, Joe, and I went for Dim Sum at Jing Fong.

We sampled twelve dishes.

Joe was generous enough to eat most of the food that Veronica and I didn’t like.

Some food remained uneaten.

Jing Fong is a giant restaurant up a tall escalator, which I almost fell down because I was busy shooting pictures of the lavish wall art. Except for a wedding party taking place beyond a room divider, there were very few diners at Jing Fong and we ended up having about six waiters hover around our table during the meal.

We were wondering if the American tradition of fortune cookies has made its way to China and when Veronica asked one of our waiters, he misunderstood and brought us more.

After dinner, we walked over to The Feast of San Gennaro, which is “New York City’s longest-running, biggest and most revered religious outdoor festival in the United States.”

There were too many cannoli choices and by the time we were ready to make a decision, we had strolled through the entire street festival without purchasing dessert.

Next year, we’ll eat dinner and dessert at San Gennaro instead of filling up at Jing Fong first.
