    I believe I should be the sole arbiter in determining who gets the death penalty

    first up - people in the USA who can't speak English

    people in China who can't speak Chinese
    people in the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or South Africa who can't speak English
    people in Russia who can't speak Russian
    people in Hong Kong who can't speak Cantonese
    people in Mexico or Spain who can't speak Spanish
    people in Brazil or Portugal who can't speak Portuguese
    people in France or half of Africa who can't speak French
    people in the Netherlands who don't speak Dutch
    people in Italy who don't speak Italian
    people in Switzerland who don't speak French, German, Italian, or Romansch
    people in Indonesia who can't speak Indonesia
    people in Thailand who can't speak Thai
    people in India who can't speak any dialect of Hindi
    people in Iraq who can't speak South Azeri or Arabic
    people in Israel who can't speak Hebrew (or I guess Yddish)
    people in Singapore who can't speak Singlish
    ...

    that's a lot of people you're out to kill dude

    it's convenient and environmentally friendly

    not to mention the fact the people who can't speak the native tongue are the leading source of food that smells disgusting
    but I like the smell of foods both local and foreign here in China :(

    feel free to cook it yourself. i assume you speak chinese

    that's a lot of food to learn how to cook

    my policy comes with the added benefit of increased self-reliance and skillsets within the surviving population, with the possible side effect of quittin' your bitchin'

    this whole discussion reminds me of something Spider Jerusalem says:

    "I hate it here. I hate the way it smells (except when you get into a fully residential quarter where people are predominantly first-gen American: the way people express their culture in their cooking is one of the few good reasons to be alive)."

    Get out of here Viv. You don't like kimchi and red beans/paste. I can't believe you.

    to be fair it could just be the kimchi I had that I didn't like, and I didn't have much of it when I was in Seoul the last few times, I always went straight for the cold noodles

    one time I tried to order those cold noodles in like November and they were like "uh the weather is cold so we don't do that anymore" and I was all NO DAMMIT MAKE ME SOME PLEEEEEEEEEEEEZE and they totally did and then the next day I had a cold

    That's what you get. Should have eaten some kimchi with those noodles. Those noodles you're talking about though, is it served in a bowl with a kind of beef broth and maybe a boiled egg and a garnish of squash or pumpkins and other vegetables? It is pretty dang good and refreshing.

    yup it's the cold buckwheat noodles and it's pretty much exactly what you described

    the soup and the noodles are basically ice-cold

    Awesome. It was my friend's birthday when I visited him and some other friends. We eat noodles during birthdays because the long noodles is kind of a symbol for long life. Because it was summer, those were the noodles of choice because it was so cold and refreshing. My friend had like 20 friends who wanted to buy him lunch or dinner, so basically for a week long I went all around Korea eating a bowl or two of those noodles a day. Each restaurant tasted slightly different or added their own special touch. It was the best week ever.

    why do japanese restaurants serve flan?

    I never understood that
    I have never seen flan at a Japanese restaurant. I think that's a strictly local phenomenon.

    it's more typically served in Taiwanese restaurants, in my experience

    hrmm

    japanese restaurants run by taiwanese immigrants are not an uncommon thing around here

    it's like ramen except the noodles are served on the side as are the other ingredients (like bamboo shoots, pork slices, etc) and then you have a small bowl of cold broth that you dip the noodles into
    so fucking delicious

    I had Pho last night at one of my favorite restaurants.

    It cost like RMB 55 (US$8) which is actually on the high side for food here but holy shit it was so good

    Hunan province is well known for their noodles

    basically you are brought a giant bowl of super hot soup

    and then several small dishes of possible additions, all of them raw

    these things include eggs, fish, meat, veggies, etc

    you toss in whatever you want with the noodles in last

    stir it all up and YUMMY

    real ramen is actually very, very good and it comes in two types

    one is "la mian" in Mandarin or "lie meen" in Cantonese and is actually the origin of Japanese ramen... it's your standard noodle fare and the noodles are hand-pulled (where pull is "la/lie" in Chinese and noodle is "mien/meen") from a single lump of dough, resulting in long, roundish strands of varying thickness

    Japanese ramen is just basic wheat noodles of uniform thickness (but depending on the kind of noodle used the thickness will vary from thin to flat to round) and the difference comes in the flavor that goes into the making of the noodles, which includes more salt and alkaline water ("kansui" in Japanese AND Chinese, after the Kan Lake in Inner Mongolia) than the Chinese counterparts

    both are meant to be served with soup

    it is a Chinese noodle made from rice flour that is flat and very wide, I'm sure you've seen it around

    it is called hor fun or he fen, which literally translates into "river noodle" because of its resemblance to a river
