re: Jim Leff
I too have great memories, from an idyllic year spent
in Taiwan, of hot, sweet soybean milk, crullers, and
baked flat bread every morning. I notice the takeout
menu of China Fun (2nd near 65th in Manhattan) says
you can get all this and more weekends from noon to
4. Anyone know where you could find it in Manhattan
on weekdays, preferably, or on a weekend morning?
On 8th Ave in Brooklyn, there is a store that has "homemade" (instead of cow-made?) soy milk, sweetened and unsweetened, and related products - it is near Gia Lam, I think on 56th St. They also have a counter with homemade noodles (soba, chow fun, rice, etc.) and big bags of bean sprouts that go for $.50/pound. I will have to look for the name for you.
Ever notice how you don't know the names of any of these places, only vague locations?
