Chinatown Coffee--An Acquired Taste
Well, I'm off to New York for a few days to visit my family and spend some time in Manhattan's Chinatown. I love the steamy, greasy delis, bakeries and noodle shops that abound there, and the hot, sweet coffee they serve. By now they should be selling a lot of mooncakes--I'll report back on that! These cups are such a witty reminder of those iconic Chinatown coffee cups, and now they're forever memorialized in porcelain, for those of the New York diaspora. Now that I live in Seattle, the land of coffee snobs, I'm looking forward to slurping down a cup of too-sweet, non-gourmet Chinatown coffee.
