They don't do justice to reality, which I find to be almost infinitely complex, tasty, and entirely unpoliticable.
Just Won Ton, for example, serves more than just wontons. A lot more. Duck. Chinese tamales.
It's a simple, calmingly out-of-the-way place, and it's a great name for a restaurant. But it both is and isn't what it is.
Again it comes spiraling to this! And I almost get it, again, and am full of soupy amazement. The ham bone is connected to the ham bone. It wouldn't fit in any of my pots, so I had to saw it in half with a hack saw. *
