    Thanks so much for the heads up. Wife and I had a fantastic time. Pancake house were putting on $2 peking duck wraps and I also tried many more offerings. So great to see the community out in force and recovering after the storm.

    Thanks again.

      Peking Duck House's duck wraps were awesome. I ate 4 of them. They should open up a permanent stall.

        I think I may have consumed my own weight in street snacks. The best thing was Ping's salt & pepper shrimp on a stick - 2 for a buck, and they were huge. Vegetarian Dim Sum House had stuffed tofu skin in sauce, also very fine. Mottzar Kitchen had fried hot peppers stuffed with shrimp. I think that place is new, and it looks worth a special trip. Doesn't Typhoon Shelter Dungeness Crab sound like a winner?

        The downside was that although it wasn't terribly crowded on the street, I had to battle legions of Chinese grandmas to get to the food. I don't like shoving old ladies, but if they lean on my back and try to climb over me, I'm going to use my heels and and elbows to protect myself.

          Yes, I believe Mottzar is new. As it happens, the fellow who tipped me to this event had heard of it during lunch at Mottzar, while chatting with the owner. This was just two days ago, and I was so eager to add the details to my weekly roster of food-friendly events, and post them here, that I didn't press for details on the chow. With luck, I'll catch up with him tomorrow.
