A real time London Underground map.

Off to London

YMFW! I’m off to London for a few days. And then to Boston. And finally, back to Munich Tuesday morning. Cripes.

Chinese Food

Friday, January 10th, 2003

I miss the sweet food of Mr. Kongs in London’s Chinatown. The special pot dishes are excellent, as is the salty pork soup. Mmmmm … pork.

Whatever you do, refuse to sit in the basement. It’s like sitting in the waiting room for the bathroom and completely disgusting. Just insist on being upstairs or go elsewhere if the wait is just too long for you.

This map looks correct. Of course, I’m getting old. There are a few places with “Kong” in the name, so beware.

If anyone knows of good Chinese food in Munich, please add a comment below.
