A photo from when I went to New York the first time. I fell absolutely in love with Chinatown. So hectic and different.

Love the hustle and bustle of Chinatown

  4. Dapanji, Spicy Big Tray Chicken
What, I asked Lian, is the origin of this weird dish? She explained that although the restaurant is Henanese, Big Tray Chicken has roots in Xinjiang, the predominantly Muslim province on the opposite side of the country, where it’s called Dapanji and is often served with noodles. Spice Village gives you the option of including hand-pulled ones, which is a fun kind of overkill, but I preferred rice.
  5. Help the Philippines

    staff:

    In a matter of hours on Friday, Typhoon Haiyan completely devastated parts of the central Philippines. It was one of the strongest storms ever recorded. The death toll is estimated up to 10,000 with hundreds of thousands more displaced. The country has declared a “state of calamity.”

    To all our friends and family in the Philippines, our hearts and thoughts are with you — and we want to make sure you’re aware of the online resources to find loved ones or request rescue.

    To everyone else, please help those desperate for clean water and food by donating to the UN World Food Programme:

    • USA: Text AID to 27722 to donate $10
    • UK: Text AID to 70303 to donate £3
    • Canada: Text RELIEF to 45678 to donate $5

It always involves dumplings, but it sometimes includes impromptu beer stops and sometimes even lightning tech startup pitch rounds.  Thanks to the developer evangelist crew at Twilio for an awesome evening!

  7. The NYC Chinatown Dumpling Tour
Dear Tumblr, we are hosting another tour this Tuesday, it would be awesome if you joined us.  And if you are good, you might even get some shengjian bao.
  8. A cha siu bao without the cha siu?
It may seem like a sacrilege, but these folks took the cha siu bao concept, but filled it with beef instead of pork.  Still though, it looks delicious and the recipe is available for you to try.  While we prefer BBQ roast pork in our buns, beef is a good alternative for those not able to eat porlk.  With any sort of bao, what you fill it with is up to your imagination!
  9. How does one make that magical BBQ roast pork filling in a cha siu bao?  It is actually pretty easy. This recipe has been a reliable one for us resulting in a tasty, juicy, and nicely flavored cha siu every time.  Just serve over rice with some Chinese veg, or save it for creating the filling for some bao.
  10. Here is the cute portion of our cha siu bao food exploration…so cute it makes you want to eat them (if you are into eating knitted goods that is).
