The Girl Who Ate Everything

Blogging about food and whatever since 2004.

My Back Was On 'No Reservations'

I'm the one on the left with the gray hoodie. Photograph taken by Kathryn Yu

Kathryn informed me that I was on tonight's episode of No Reservations shot back in September when Tony ate at Momofuku Ssam Bar as Olivia, Kåre, and I oogled from afar. Sweet. I didn't get to watch it but I figure the Internet will solve that problem for me soon.

They have a giant cake
Giant cake!

And there was my view. The cake was a total "WTF is that?" kind of moment because Milk Bar hadn't opened yet. Oh man, their cakes are good.

I'll have a Momofuku love fest post coming up soon. Har har.

Huh, I was watching that while cooking I was more listening to it. I did remember reading that you went there, though I guess I forgot it was while Bourdain was there. I'm not a big fan of his but after that segment I AM a fan of Chang's. He seemed really cool.

oh, and I slightly freaked out at the size of the cake!

Yes yes T_T I need to get a blog going and put up all the goodies about Shanghai's dining scene. Unfortunately that also involves learning HTML. It will happen one day!

Glee! You'll see when you get to watch it that Bourdain had the exact same thought as you when they put that cake down on his table! That whole scene at Momofuku Ssam Bar was great. Hell, I liked the whole episode. But then again, I'm a fan. Next week, he goes to the Philippines--WOOT!

Nice haircut "SIR"! ah ha ha ha

No wonder I didn't recognize you!

Just kidding, just kidding heh heh

Anna: As long as Chang churns out the delicious food...I AM A FAAAN!

Julie: Damn, I'll have to check out the Philippines episode. I really wanna visit there.. :(

redrhino: Your joke fall a bit flat on me because a lot of girls have short hair here....uh.

Then again, even from the front I probably don't look very feminine.
