Culture on the Cheap
THIS WEEKEND: A Very Special Soup For The Soul
Got off early?
I asked. To wit he replied:
No, I threw up at work… and at 23rd – Ely Avenue.
After gently chiding the Mister for not throwing up at the proper place (that being the G train) I did what had to be done; I walked across the street and purchased some ramen noodle soup. Someone (Mark Twain or possibly George Orwell) once spoke of masturbation as being a friend to the lonely and a solace to the poor —or something to that effect. I believe the same thing can be said about ramen soup: it is not only affordable to just about anyone, but every person has his or her formula for success. In the case of last night’s fare at Chez Shitty (as depicted at above left) that would be lime, culantro, red onion, cumin and asefoetida. Which brings me to this.
This Sunday, November 9, 2008 The Brooklyn Kitchen* will be hosting a Ramen-Off at Union Pool! The rules for this event appear to still be evolving, so be sure to check out their WordPress blog for more details. Be sure to participating in the “Ramen Index” while you’re there!
