1) i posted about the little cart that offered curry squid last week being at Chrystie and Grand. A few days ago, they weren't there. Today i found them at the next block: still on Grand, but closer to Bowery, in front of Kwong Kee, by the little red newstand.
No English menu. This time i also saw that they have "Chang Fun" (those rolled up rice noodles) with ribs or with fish balls for $1.25. Other offerings include daikon radish with pork skin.
2)Today at the Vietnamese place at Bowery and Canal I wanted to refresh my memory of the Bahn Mi, so I got a bbq pork one, and a sugar cane juice. Maybe I ate it too late, but it didn't taste nearly as good as the place on Mott between Grand and Hester....The ladies working there showed me the different beef jerkys they had. Two kinds of beef, and one of venison. It was a bit sweet for my taste, but different, nevertheless.
