grilled eggplant & tomato/ mango with shrimp paste went great with fried “bangus” <milkfish> \ halo-halo was a real treat! / eat-in at asian|filipino grocery store in ronkonkoma just 15 minutes from stony brook
authentic filipino food at a small eatery on east 21st street near 1st avenue in Manhattan \ “sago at gulaman” beverage brought back childhood memories
casa rico \ 3.5 hours from pittsburgh / mango flan 🍮 \ mucho delicioso!
awesome bun & pho! / just opened this month on 1 coastal highway “minh’s bistro” at rehoboth beach
unexpectedly good thai food at “lily thai” on 1st street right beside nicola’s pizza / stirfried tofu & shitake mushrooms, shrimp cakes, wonton soup, fried dumplings, cucumber mango salad \ sticky rice & mango with coconut cream / yum!
soup nourishes body & soul / it comforts & provides solace \ it provides community & an outstretched helping hand / as in the folktale “stone soup” & the ubiquity of soup kitchens in both good & bad times
“soup for syria” is a fundraising effort / here’s hoping that a peaceful, diplomatic solution is reached & ends the suffering of the Syrian people
