If You’re Chinese, It’s Just “Food”.

For those of you who haven’t been stalking me, Thursday night is still Chu Shing Night, and I encourage people to come and eat Chinese food, because eating Chinese food is a just cause for the greater good.

It’s been moved up in the last few weeks because the late night snack menu has had the words “late” and “night” crossed off it and because two of the usual crowd now bring an infant with an early bedtime out to the party. So the Glutton Bowl usually kicks off at around seven.

I say give it a try. That map isn’t quite right, by the way – it’s actually a block to the east, on the north side of the street.

    Chinese food? As in Americanized crap or the good stuff?

    Joe, you have no idea how much trouble I get if I’m so much as seen in the vicinity of a chicken ball.

    Is there actually a decent place to go in Ottawa? I had Chinese food for about 10 days in Vancouver and I loved it; I’d love to hear of a place round here that serves some decent stuff.

    To my neophyte tastes, it’s hard to go wrong on Somerset. Start at Bronson and walk 1 block west. Pick a place that seems OK. I’ll have more details for you soon, I’m sure, but for now, that’ll get you most of the way there.

    My girlfriend hates Chinese food (no wonder, you’d hate anything you’d spent the majority of your life getting shoved at you) but when I visited her and her family I got treated well, and I’d love to experience it again with people around here.
