another day. another project to work on.
i've have various projects due between now and when i hop on a plane. busy time.
yesterday, while i was working.... i received a
text message from sus about hitting up a spot on fillmore after she was done at the kitchen. alas, when i checked online, they were closed....so then i suggested that we hit up wing lee in the inner richmond since i wanted to head over to green apple anyway to see about obtaining a copy of the perfect scoop by lebovitz.
even the best laid impromtu plans go awry.
green apple didn't have a copy (that either sus or i could find anyway) of the book....but i bought plenty by ottolenghi (total impulse buy) with the intention of purchasing the perfect scoop elsewhere....and by the time we reached the inner richmond, wing lee's was closed. so instead of having the planned upon dumpling snack, we decided to hit up spices II and noshed on the numbing beef tendon (which i already knew that i liked) as well as a lamb hot pot.
this was the first time that i've ever eaten a hot pot at a szechuan place and i ended up taking a little video of it....
after we were done, i was pretty amused at the sight of red chili oil everywhere (see top pic). while it wasn't what we originally thought we were going to do with our impromptu break, it was a nice break before we headed back to our respective places to do various work projects.
