RESTAURANTS A Conversation Piece … (No. 32)

It just opened and I wouldn’t go there for the food. Nor for the style of the establishment. The food prices are okay (6 to 10 $ or 4 to 7 Euro). But the service is outstanding in this restaurant in Harbin (Northeast China). It  has 18 different coloured robots, ranging between 1,3 and 1,6 m … Weiterlesen »

EATING The Nice Advice … (No. 35)

I have eaten with chopsticks for ages but never saw the difference. But it’s true what somebody told me recently: The tips of the Chinese sticks are cut off and the Japanese eating-tools are daggers.
