Food Flashback

Have you ever eaten something and had a food flashback?

I had a flashback last night while Lee and I had dumplings and freshly-made noodles at the Chinatown Express in Washington DC's Chinatown.

We make noodle at the Chinatown Express in DC

My long time friend, Yandary of the blog Rhymes with Laundry who lives in DC, recommended this hole-in-the-wall restaurant for inexpensive, hand-made noodles, we had to go. This place also makes their steamed pork dumplings fresh, which reminds me of the many dumplings we made when I was a kid.

Love a good dumpling

But it was this green stuff that gave me a flashback. This is a concoction of finely chopped green onions, ginger, and oil.

Hello, childhood!

My dad would boil a whole chicken, chop it up into smaller pieces, and serve it with a similar ginger/green onion mixture. It doesn't sound like much, but is so good and it reminds me of my dad. It's been years since I've had this fragrant chutney.

The noodles were as yummy as Yandary said, but gosh, it was this concoction that made my night!

  1. Ah! I'm so glad you liked it! And I'm glad you tried the dumplings, too. I got so excited about the noodles, I forgot to recommend those. :) Excited to see you guys tomorrow! Now to return to my overdue schoolwork...


What's that you say?
