Had a quickie lunch at the bar at Joe's in midtown. Tsingtao beer with a hot & sour soup and , of course, crab and pork soup dumplings. Soup was OK with the interesting addition of shrimp. The soup dumplings were not scalding hot inside for a change and were delicious but how do you eat the damn things without looking like a fountain? I know-put them on the soup spoon, nibble a little hole, let the soup drain onto the spoon, slurp and then stick the whole thing in your mouth after dipping in ginger sauce. There's gotta be a better way. One of my colleagues is so addicted to them that we had to do an intervention last year.
