Best meal he had last week?

On Christmas day, my mom and I had Dim sum—it’s become a new tradition for us. This is the second year we’ve gone to Everyday Noodles. We had the pork and crabmeat soup dumplings, sesame cold noodles, braised minced pork over rice, the pan-fried green onion pancakes, and the shrimp, pork and vegetable potstickers. Everything was so good!

 But I have to mention—because it was also so exceptional—a dinner I had at Salt. I went by myself after work. Sat at the bar, had a couple of cocktails. I had a salad—their Caesar salad. Three big romaine leaves—each one covered in dressing and anchovy bread crumbs. Then I had the pasta—with duck confit and mushrooms. And of course the bread is amazing.
