I always wanted to try real Indian cuisine. Thanks for the recipes, gone to cook it. Will be back to share my impressions!
Just by reading this article I am drawn to seek and find this place! I am delighted by the passion that Aquan Jiang displays with his short but memorable quotes. I will find you and taste your pork buns!
Awesome article as usual Mr. Ross. However, Mr. Grant's claim that onion rings is an American invention/ American food is as absurd as saying Columbus discovered America. For example in India, onion bhaji, rings or straws of onion dripped in chick pea batter and fried is about as ubiquitous as onion rings in America.
The pancakes at Cho Sun OK are a real delight. A wonderful way to start off a meal.
I like that you included weights in additional to volumetric measures. I wish more people would do that.
As for the pickled onions, that's a Yucatecan thing. I doubt there were many Japanese fishing boats in the Gulf of Mexico in the 1920s.
Can you please use the standard abbreviation for measurements in your recipes? The print version of this recipe looks like it calls for 6 pounds of butter, because the "t" has a very short crossbar, so it looks like an "l", and usually tablespoon is abbreviated "Tbsp". Thanks!
I don't understand why you feel compelled to add in a pinch of Ajinomoto. Everything they make is a neurotoxic or carcinogenic poison, like
Aspartame and MSG. This is one of the biggest corporate killers on the planet! Please read this article:
AJINOMOTO, ASPARTAME & BRAIN TUMORS: RECIPE FOR DEATH!
Here is another excellent one explaining how it got approval:

Yum, this sounds delicious! I can't wait to try the real thing then experiment in the kitchen.
David, this is a great piece. Nice job on scoring the recipe, too!
nice article, except - I think most people here in Taiwan would much prefer if you called it TAIWANESE bubble tea, not Chinese.
I love the lychee boba at Grand Asia Market. It's not a tea at all. I was able to relicate it by dumping canned lychee with its syrup in a blender, a little bit more sugar, and some ice and running the blender until a smoothie-like texture is achieved. I have tried making the bubbles at home with marginal success. Thanks for the tip on the triple boil/cool down method. Can't wait to make the bubbles and add it to the lychee smoothie. Damn things cost $4 at GAM!
Thanks for this - I'm thrilled to have a recipe for bubble tea. When I lived just on the edge of Queens, the Asian moms in our apt building taught me to love it. But they also taught me another thing: though it looks like a kids' treat, be cautious letting young kids take a sip - like you said, those sticky tapioca balls come up the straw fast - super easy to choke on (as I myself discovered, with much comic sputtering!).
