"Anymore. Maybe more fashionable to go to church. These days I'm not sure Mrs Jocelyn but more and more people have prayer rooms in their own homes and you can call the Poojari home depending on what you're praying for I was reading about how some of these rich industrialists have pooja parties in their homes. That would put the biggest temples to shame. What Golden Boston invitations and return gifts for a Ganesh Pooja? Just imagine interesting Mr Chow said. Maybe we should do that. Don't be ridiculous you don't even like coming to the Temple Mrs Cha said we don't need to copy everything other people in Gorgon. Do Mr had never heard of a Buddha party but now he was intrigued. You could probably be as lavish show off as much as you wanted. If used just God as an excuse he followed his wife. In toward the sanctum sanctorum. It's so nice and cool in here. Mrs Chazan even even without air conditioning. She was relieved to feel the cool clean temple floor. That felt like silk beneath her feet doesn't astle looked like God is doing any of these people much good any of the gods. Mr Chao whispered to his wife as a man with the white bandage covering one. I walked past. Ask them you don't know what stated and if he didn't come to the Temple Mrs Chow said. Maybe she was right. Mr Cia thought he had been very fortunate so far it was risky to offend the gods. Maybe he should have left the shoes with the Brahman Shu attendance dafter. He certainly shouldn't have leather shoe in his back pocket right now. He would put some extra money into the donation bowl when his wife wasn't looking when nobody nobody was looking. The gods would notice that he hadn't done it for any kind of human credit and would be particularly appreciative. The silence seemed to get louder. Ah The GUK closer to Lord Krishna Shrine you could tell this was the main God because the blue idol was nearly six feet tall and understood gracefully in a signature pose with one foot bent in front of the other and his flute raised to his lips. His pedestal was a a deep red and the yellow of his totally matched. The yellow of the flute was the busiest part of the temple. But also the most peaceful all the priests assistant was carrying the lit Dr through the crowd of believers all of whom were passing the hands over the flame name and then over their own heads to receive. God's Light Mr Chao waited his turn he wanted God's light but because he hadn't hadn't done this in years he moved his hand too close to the flame and then screamed in pain. The flame licked his hand. Everyone turned to look. Why must you always make a scene? You don't take anything seriously. Mrs Chaz said Smiley. Her husband was a south made. Man Relying on God was a comfort not a career. She put her hands together. Closed her eyes but ahead a thank God for finding in her a good husband at the same time Mischa with his hands pressed together is closed and head. Bowed was also thanking God for finding him a good spouse he rarely visited temples he never followed rituals he had a leather shoe in his back pocket. It and he regularly ate beef although in his defense he'd heard that the beef in India was actually buffalo and those aren't sacred but thanks to having a wife wife who truly believed and prayed for him he had managed to find success. Maybe it hadn't all been just a result of hard work and good luck maybe Eh. It had been because of his wife's prayers. Do we ask the PAJARO. Bless the keys here. Mr Chao whispered. I'm not sure maybe you can just take the keys and hold them up to your head near the main shine. I'm not sure if we should disturb him. Mrs China's head. The priest was standing just a few feet away and looked about as trustworthy as a real estate agent and better fed than any of the gods here wasn't easy to trust someone with visible gold. Perhaps on his teeth and rings on most of his fingers and seeing him now she was reminded again of why she came to the temple. Lesson less these days now. Now that we've come all the way here may as well get the judge to actually bus the keys Mr Cha said I don't want to go home without doing it and then have you blaming me and saying I'm impatient patient and whatnot. I'm just happy you agreed to come Mrs Chad. I'm sure God will also be happy. Let's just give a small donation and go home. NOPE you're giving donations for a blessing. The priest walked over to the ties to ask. What would you like to have blessed you know with the Moon in the fifth quarter? It's an auspicious day today. He had been listening. You was always listening for the donation. If this couple handed him the donation he would be able to pocket it but but if they put it in the donation box it would go directly to the temple's main management. Unfortunately priests did not work on commission. Our new car armistead said Oh nothing. Mississau- quickly added a new car. The priests said a new car must be blessed. You have done well. Praise God people people these days they come to me only with misfortune above misfortune. God has been kind to you. It was good if you come to where it is. The guy heavy brought a coconut. Or should I get at one not no need no need Mrs Chow. Said we just came to pay our respects to God. Thank you for taking the time to speak to us. This is more than enough But we've come on this. He's being so generous. Mr Chow said. Let's at least get the keys blast. We couldn't bring the car but we brought the keys. They said the prese tying the unfinished besides symbol of the Mercedes car keys and Mr Jones Hans I can bless the keys hill eh if you would like for just a small amount donation I can come to your home and do a prayer for the actual just the keys will do Mrs Charles said head. The priest took the keys and said he would take them to the back directly near the idol and sprinkle them with holy water and had them last right right. Here's fine. Mischa added the evening prayer. Rush will start soon. Don't want to delay you. Mrs Todd did not want him taking the keys out of the site. She had been hearing thing about CDs of crimes and delicately in which thieves apparently took quick imprint of keys in bars of soap and then created copies of the keys and stole all things effortlessly. She was not going to fall victim to a key. Coughing priest Mr Chao whispered now why are you causing a seeing the and this is why we came. Let's get the keys blast. We are getting the keys. Blessed Mrs Chow said in front of us right now but if the keys can closer to God we should let them Esta Joss at you required Messa. You have a leather shoe in your pocket. Let's just finish up here. Mr Mr Jaw took out a hundred or be knocked from his wallet but before he could place it in the priest donation bull. His wife's snatched it out of his hand and walked toward the locked wooden donation. Box near the idol. I'll just put it indirectly just after the priest. Why increase your work? She looked over. Her Shoulder. Saw Her husband busy talking to the priest leased put the hundred or p Bill Wallet took out a fifty rupee bill and slipped it into the slot of the locked donation. Box Fifty was lot but at least now it was going directly to the temple management outside the temple back in the hot sun on the duty asphalt Mr Joff eld originated. He had gotten the pre cell phone number and would find out more about a prayer room in Google. He took his right shoe out of his back. Pocket pocket put it on and limped or where to find his left shoe. Mr Cia Picton up placed his left foot gingerly and at flexed tis toes against the soft leather and stood up satisfied. God would protect them behind him. Mrs Chow also slept her feet into her sandals which are hot from the Sun and felt relieved that they had come to the temple even parts of the temple. We're getting more and more commercial Mushek lately. It was still the home of the gods and it was wise to hedge their bets. There would be safer now and despite not paying extra for the exam time praise. She was certain that God would look after her son across the world in America..

How did you and the show mate well and then I'm actually curious about the second one will corey and I met Many many years ago his sister is actually not best friends. She was the first of them that I met We are in the same grade at school school and they did not go to the same school as us. They actually came from the school that taught that teach at now used to be called. Osborne is now. I used to be called Osborne's triggers and then they come to our school and then me and his sister Kirby became best friends. And we're still best friends to this day. And so I grew up going and hanging out with Kirby and going upstairs to hang out with her older brother Corey and thinking that him and his friends were like super cool. I remember going and watching The six hints with you guys and like being scared but then it was cool because I was hanging out you guys. y'All invited US up there to hang out like I felt the coolest record we work will. Oh Yeah wasn't saying you are just just normal in the audience now so anyway. She didn't mean like I thought he was so cool in like clubs. I was fucking pretty cool. Hey so that was pretty much how it was for the most part of our lives and then I went to college and spent many years away and when I moved back I absolutely could not live. It was my parents in so core. Invited me to live with him and at the time we were like strictly friends because I was just an idiot and doing idiot things things you just graduated college just college. I was doing a lot of dumb things and then core decided to move off to New York and and then I guess at that time I decided to visit him and went out. Went to New York and we hung out just me and him the for time reference for everybody when she came to visit me in the New York in New York was the week that something more than free by Jason is bull came out so that's that timeframe and he's the person who got me all on Jason like before that man him used to get drunk and hang out on the couch. Listen to all the Jason. Listen you went to some Jason Isbell shows with me and other girlfriends of mine. I would hang out with him on the couch. You're listening to Jason. Stay up all not just shooting the Shit. Also when we listen to Meatloaf we jam out MEATLOAF and we have the time of our lives but we were indefinitely different places at the time but we also kind of always voice said if we were thirty and never married other like we just made that stupid. Pack that kids you know younger kids did and and and then he moved to New York. And then I'll up and visited him at new album came out and we just kind of like. I don't know realize what you're missing. Because he had left stand so came home so he came home and another girl he dated a girl who you know. Cana- call them hand ham. I am Satan. Yeah it was the one that called me and I know that from one of our Vegas episode and basically I guess at that point realized away. What was I missing here like? I've always loved Corey. Why not love him in this regard art line all the picture of Ham site? And you're like yeah that's it I was I was on it from there and so I told him break up with that girl and she was very very bitter about all that I think so but yeah 'cause then ham citing kind of thing so so anyways I realized I love to men and we decided decided to get together and here we are. Now okay. this next one doozy. I'd just like to hear her sound off on politics. Works for Maintenance Thomson Lord Well here's the ridiculous thing I have absolutely no say politics. They stressed out and may tell my anxiety earlier gives me the most anxiety. I feel like it's a bunch of people bitch which other all the time trying to make the other person say they're lie and say their thoughts on it and so I've never really gotten a politics opinion. I mean I think where we're at right now. Don't hit that Agri on those terms. I mean agree with Corey for the most sense. Not Because he tells me what to I would never dare to believe I do also just agree with what he thinks. We just chat about things. That aren't I would consider politics. We can we we talk about societal issues and we usually are pretty in the middle with everything and so you know if you I thank you took a test you would lean more to the liberal side or whatever but I don't necessarily say on fully liberal person but I've never been somebody who is fully one thing sure like I i. I don't identifies one thing in any regard but they used to say I said that for my entire life until two thousand sixteen Because beauce to that was like an okay thing. It's like hey you you know. I don't really consider myself for a Republican Democrat liberal conservative and I didn't and then this whole shit happened and I realized it one hundred percent. How Liberal Goddamn was and I was like no I do identify as that because I would rather I'd rather be in that camp then the other bullshit but I and I just don't like identify like I don't I don't know I mean we talk about it a good bit and like sincerely and some people might get mad at me for saying this I have certainly kept up with politics. Moore sense tries video popped and Artur kind of became out that are book and Yada got a Yada Yada but like I believe what I believe in. I've never had to hear a person. Say It on TV for me to know how feeling heart now there is some Mike Gray areas shit that I was not aware of that has to be pointed out to me like oh well. I didn't even realize how deeply rooted in fucking sexism that thought that I had was no no idea idea. Thank you for bringing that up Elizabeth Warren or whatever the fog but ever. I don't know I guess I'll flip. Flopped between a bunch two different things a political person. Whatever and my opinion is just a lot of stress and for the most part like everyone is just bitching back back and forth about stuff and like I have no that like for show? I don't know no yes that makes me. I don't know don't make you dumb honestly may make hugh very smart. Who is your favorite in-law honestly could go? This could go in there asking you questions questions that don't all have to be about me. This could be on either side I guess we're going to exclude my sister because she's not works consist. The core sister is my best friend. Looks good slowed higher but to be honest. I'd probably say your mom Tom because coming well. Just because she is a very like clean-cut prestige like Wollman Wolman and she has her shit together and laugh but she's also coalition come to her and say things and she has the funniest Nia stuff deci about it and she's super responsive like she gets it. She somebody if you were to make sure you wouldn't think you know. Yeah I guess. Sometimes you wouldn't think she would like to get you as a person but she does and she doesn't necessarily pass judgment on you and like it. She's hilarious thanks. She admittedly like she'll say she has gotten more empathetic to people as the years have gone on. MOM had mom says how it is that that's what I love about her. One hundred percent certain top feels the site. Look that's what it is. I'm sure after all these years I've been copies for and she's probably had something to say about me. I'm certain and I'm sure she yeah. We'll let your goddamn now and you're my wife so I But now my mom definitely has like this is my opinion. And that's what the fuck it is. But I'll say this mom's opinions have evolved over the years because you know we grew up pretty the fucking in the church and Yada Yada Yada and mom definitely still is more of a conservative person for sure make no bones about it but like She has started definitely in the later years to you know kind of like. Oh well I didn't know a lot about that culture this person or this lifestyle because it wasn't around here and we went to church with surly pass judgment what I'm saying. What I'm saying is the show will and grace really did a lot for our family? It really did just a huge number on our family. So that's an interesting that you said that I I wouldn't have. I don't know who I thought you would have picked. I mean and also I love Your Dad. Yeah no well cool anything out at love your know. Now that's I guess I just conversely your mom the most also it's literally just it's either mom dad. 'cause I don't have a family so it's one of those three. We eliminated Karbi. Of course it's fucking mom all right next question already. Let's see here Do you find your husband funny. Well first off. Answer that one Yes I do. One thing I've always said is that I'm not a huge comedy person which is really insane. Sort of a bummer. But at the same time Kanda hits from getting majoring Zadi for people like I get second hand embarrassment like I don't like one. Comedians have like a low innocence. Like where they're waiting for somebody to laugh and maybe they don't laugh and so. I never feel that way with Corey so I've always thought he was funny because he's always a very fast pace comedian. So which I've also told you like when we're about to go see a comedian you but oh I just don't know like what if they gives me. What if they do something that's not funny? I'm like if I'm taking you to see a show it's going to hit because either A.. I have gotten tickets to see bill. Burr some fucker like that right like we're actually going out of the house to see a show or it's one of my bros.. And like you know folks with funny motherfuckers so I I I wouldn't. I couldn't stand seeing and not funny. Comedian either. I mean not happen all the time at open mics. If I'm fucking spinners them not money act literally. I've never paid see comedy comedy in my entire life. Just because I've been doing it since sixteen and if you do it you don't have to pay for it at the club and you know. Luckily we get hookups to theaters and shit. Because that's it's just such a small goddamn way. There's really only twenty comedians. And I get to be Kinda one right now which is really hits. Mrs Joe. Oh wait now. If that was a two part question does do you find your husband funny and now here's the other one and do you have to explain his comedy to your mega loving relatives. This is from a guy the name Guy Clark. It's not the not the Guy Clark that I grew up Levin rest and pace but do you have to explain. Mock comedy to your Maga- loving relatives. That's the thing I don't have Magal you don't and it really supreme we hit for me pretty well and you have a shit ton of relatives like I have. I mean I really really don't have that many compared to a lot of people but compared to me like you have to me. You've got fucking huge family. 'cause with me it's literally just it was just might not for a long time. It was my grandmother Mom and dad and Carby and then granny of course very famously died three years ago So Oh you with Shit on people in my opinion but not that many but they also are not Maga- loving. Yeah no it's wild matter of fact the first thing Your your Pal Janssen. The first time I met him Number one it was my first time being an hour as your boyfriend boyfriend at the time or was it fiance say about. Maybe by the time I met him it was fiance Any Shwe's we go out and he he lives on a Goddamn farm..
"mrs chow" Discussed on Show Me the Meaning!
"Oftentimes. The frame has walls on both sides of the frame. The rooms that they actually rent could not be closer closer together. There is a small sliver of wall that separates them <hes> one of my favorite l. a. little clues or sorry not clues while little hidden gems that when they move in the movers are constantly mistaking which stuff belongs to and they're constantly like you know having to push mr chan and miss mrs chan and mr chao together because they keep on fucking up who stuff is who's also also much. There's they're constantly having to dodge each other to keep from bumping into each other. So there's the narrow stairwell that goes into the noodle slash. Dumpling shop dares when mrs coup is playing mahjong and one of them is leaving the room and the other one's coming in the corridors are so narrow that they like. It's they have to put an effort not to touch each other. We makes it all the more cruel all the more yeah like tragic that you know they love each other so much and yet they're pushed together and half to repel themselves what what what is forcing them to repel themselves. I think it's a cultural thing nineteen sixty s hong kong you know they're even the character paying says you gotta help me save face. I mean they would just be humiliated. Socially if people found out i mean what's interesting about is usually when people are talking about loneliness. It's people just all by themselves but in this movie surrounded by people i mean there's never more lonely than when you're surrounded by you know other theoretically and so those confined spaces really i think essentially sensu at that point. That's really interesting yeah. It's almost you know when you're so close to something yet. The gap is is still an infant gap. That's kind of what's happening right. It's like a million miles to people who are divided by a sliver verve wall yeah and i think it creates a weird like anxiety almost when you're watching it because we are so used to the meet cute style style of film where oh they bumped into each other on the stairwell and other going out on a date will now it's like no they can't bump into each other because there's a gap whether it's that cultural gap that you're talking about or some sort of moral fiber and commitment that they have to their respective partners or whatever it might be but there is an infiniti that stands dan's between them that is preventing them but at the same time like you say the proximity in which they're thrust is so close that it's like they keep fighting against this. It's like they can't it's like it's like they're faded to bump into each other but nevertheless they're kind of <hes> repelled from each other at the same time right and it's all it's not only the threat of humiliation and social ostracization but also the fact that i think it's just a moral thing. They say we're not going to be like them. <hes> so we talked about the arab mentioned the noodle dumpling shop. There's another point where mr chan enters the noodle little shop as mrs chow. No excuse me. I'm gonna fuck this up many times. During this time at one point mrs chan enter the noodle shop as mr chao exits visits and then immediately it starts raining as if no no no you're not getting away from her and then he has to go back into the noodle shop and basically just he sits there and smoke cigarette cigarette until it stops raining and then mrs chan comes out and then he liked awkwardly has to follow her home because they're both going in the same direction. The first part of the movie their constant cloaks close proximity drives up this awkwardness of them having to confront something that they both all but no which is that their respective spouses are cheating on them and this is a honestly like you have to be paying close attention and being very active you're too. I don't wanna say to get this but you know when i'm watching this movie. I'm like studying. I'm like okay as like this framing and this setting and these cuts and such and forth like it's not very plainly spelled out certainly not a dialogue. I think the movie deliberately use it style to tell its story. I mean the cuts. I mean we're we're going to editing. Potentially i mean this is a very strangely cut movie. Oh yeah typically clearly you would cut from one storyline to another or you would show like the day turned to night but in this movie you're really cutting from two shot conversation between mr misao mr chao and mischance right. Ask another scene with these two talking and you're like wait a second. Is this next scene taking place ten seconds after the first conversation or is it another week and you're really having to sort of play catch up to it well the whole playacting super super confirming the first time i saw this movie i didn't get it at all the fact that they're rehearsing or playacting how the affair air had transpired. I was like what the fuck is going on like. I didn't get it at first but there's all this nostalgia for what could be including what could be the start of their significant others. You know romance and infidelity extends everywhere see. I love that idea idea that there <hes> that they're rehearsing their level. I love it didn't get it the photo yeah yeah well. That's kind of what i was going to say is that i i love it as a man in his thirties who has experienced heartbreak and longing but i don't understand how you in your college years vibe vibe with this film because i think in my college years if i would have seen this. I'd have been like what the fuck like get to it. What's going on here because i i didn't expect eh a twenty year old twenty one year old didn't have longing in heartache in the same way as it is here sure i did but it was very sort of germinal and and it was kind of <hes> or it was just like ridiculously over the top and passionate and ridiculous and irrational kind of stuff but like i didn't have the depth that i think now that i that i think that life experience has has given to me that allows me to appreciate this film more does that make sense totally and i it could not verbalize in college. Wha this movie affected me. You just did on a very elemental. I'm old and only now. Am i able to at least try to piece together. How this film is so effective. Give you just had an old soul or something like that. Maybe yeah yeah because it is 'cause there is something i don't know there is something that unless you have been in a ten year relationship or an intense relationship and you've experienced <hes> the kind of ups and downs when things get bored and then when you're tempted by somebody else because there's something problem intentions in your relationship those those things i mean if you don't quite empathize thighs with that in your own core. I almost wonder if this film kind of gets lost on you a little bit not that you can find other elements to appreciate but i wonder if if it doesn't just become richer upon repeated viewings like i think maybe in my fifties and sixties. I'll probably have a completely different experience of the film. You know. There's a little something you know romanticized about the loneliness. I mean typically when when when i'm alone i'm alone in my apartment. You know eating ice cream but tony is smoking a cigarette on site of suit. If only we could all be so cool when we feel sets easy james why <music> have nearly as good as this movie makes you want to smoke. I mean some of those. Those slow motion smoke shots. It says they hit the lamp in the newspaper studio. That tony long works at so cool. I think this movie is just fucking cool like james dean cool. I've said it like five times now. I think it's to the point the point oh absolutely one hundred percent. I think that's the whole thing with the title is there's a sense of cruelty with the title because this is the sexiest most romantic movie it is a movie that puts you in the mood for love but under a condition that will not allow for it <hes> but to what what you were saying earlier austin. That's one hundred percent agree with everything you're saying in terms of this movie might affect you in a different way at during different stages of life. That is why i structure sure the podcast to ask. What was it like the first time it was like the most recent time because that's one of the greatest things about being a film lover is that you discover new things about the movie every time you watch it and and new things about yourself yeah. I think you said something earlier that i totally there certain films that i wanna watch them and then i just want to have that experience and and that's it and i wanna leave it. There like i saw film called smashed by james pond soul <hes> a few years ago and it's just this little indie film. I don't even think it's a masterpiece astor piece but i saw one time where i was in my life at that time that's it. I don't wanna revisited. I'm good with it right but film like this in the mood for love. I totally totally get the the desire to want to dissect it. You know i want to dissect it now. I want to do the thing that all the like youtube. Film analysts are doing where they're looking at. How these shots relate to one another. What's the setup in the payoff in what's going on like tommy was alluding to earlier. The kind of odd use of kind of fade to black senate makes it a very sort of episodic vignette style of film and you don't really get the conception of time except for the titles that come up periodically that tell you okay. It's nineteen sixty three now. Now it's nineteen sixty six here. We are in his different location. You kind of don't get <hes> an intuitive sense of that and so i think it would be really fun to like almost sit with a whiteboard and like write it down or sit with a piece of paper and write things things down. I feel like certain films lend themselves to that type of analysis and this is one of those films yeah. That's basically what i did last night. Did you yeah i mean basically i just loved the shit out of movie i mean i didn't really have a whiteboard but i just i just said all right after the first ten minutes. I was like oh yes. I remember this film formalism formalism longing. Let's do this is there. Something unique stood out for you. This time that you hadn't noticed hadn't attached to in previous viewings. Yeah i mean but a lot of is just details so for example during the meal that they have when they <unk> when they come clean about what they know. I really appreciated aided. They're shown in one shots never in a two-shot despite the fact that this is a meal in which they're sitting in a booth and they're sitting right across from each other and only when they confess is what they know are they seen in the same shot walking away from the restaurants. There's this kind of isolation and then one part that i remembered but never could really remember why why it was so potent to use austin's word is that the smallest amount of intimacy is given a close up when tony long put some spicy mustard on her plate and she tip samedan his desire to reach out and touch her is palpable but that's the closest thing he can do..
"mrs chow" Discussed on House of Carbs
"I I mean, all of these flavors and cuisines originated at the same place. It's just the ways that in which traveled across, you know, countries in and across cultures has kind of changed it you tasted a little. But ultimately, it's it's coming from the same. Fundamental place. So yeah. Right. So much sense. You know, of course, tell me about another place another of a totally different walk of life. You know, let's let's let's move from from the West Indies to a different part of the world. Sure. Our first stop on that kind of Scarborough Markham's suburban trip was a place called. It's a Vietnamese place called bomb Lula, which is Vinnie's spot that from what I've heard, and I've I've done a lot of reading. From this. This one Toronto food critic slash travel. Writer named the rush. Dos who is just an thority on really traditional ethnic cuisine that you could find in the greater Toronto area. And this place serves a base specialize in a crab and tomato noodle soup called Boone. Ru and it is it's it's funny. Because this is like it's a dish that I ate so much growing up that I actually hated it. My mom used to make it all the time because it was one of her favorites. And she made it so often that I was just I was just completely sick of it. But once I got, you know, once I went to college in once, you know, the the visit started being coming more infrequent that was when it was like, okay. So this is a true taste of home. And so that's a. I want to interrupt you for just one second. Yeah. Just to set the stage because I think it's right to observe you as an L A native. And what you do the the home that you grew up in and the restaurants that you as a young person aid at like in terms of of what I'm gonna I was gonna make the generals ation about sort of there being at the very tippy top of that kind of cuisine. What you could get in LA is very unique to to Los Angeles, probably not rivalled anywhere else in the country. I'm not gonna make that generalization because I'm not an expert. But I just want to say the bar is very high with you go into a place like this that serving dishes like this. That's what I wanted to get out. Absolutely. And you know, I I am Vietnamese. And when people ask me, oh, what's the best Vietnamese food that you can get in L A? And generally, my answer is is very frustrating. I'm just like come to my mom's place, and we'll we'll serve you up something righteous. Of. But I hope my mom doesn't hear this. But you know, their version of this dish is better than my mom's. I've had I've I've had a lot of time to think about it right after I finished my bowl. I was like this was so good that it didn't even remind me of home. It reminded me that you know. Oh yet. It reminded me of all the times where my mom like missed ingredient or like took a took a half measure because it was on par with some of the best versions she's ever made of it. And now was when I was like, oh, wow. Okay. This this is a very legitimate restaurant. Apologies. Mrs Chow, we would never demean or diminish your your efforts. Mrs chow. Yeah. Of course, not she's a she's a lovely lady and a wonderful cook. But yeah, I mean, I I left me left me speechless for a while. Just because it was like, I didn't I I really wasn't expecting it. Right. Right. I think that's the the aspect of of Toronto. That's the true allure, at least from all of the reading that I've done, and like, you know, the the the I hate to use this word because it's so popular right now. But like the authenticity of micro cuisines in Toronto their ability because of the diversity of the traditions folks have come from and had been cooking there. And what they've brought it must be the case. And this is one of the things I'm interested in that they're able to get ingredients that that that permit them to to sort of capture the essence of the dishes at that. Folks have brought from various places all over the world. Right. Yeah. And the thing is I feel like with all of the advancements with technology..

"I I mean, all of these flavors and cuisines originated at the same place. It's just the ways that in which traveled across, you know, countries in an across cultures has kind of changed it you tasted a little. But ultimately, it's it's coming from the same. Fundamental place. So yeah. Right. So much sense. You know, of course, tell me about another place another of a totally different walk of life. You know, let's let's let's move from from the West Indies to a different part of the world. Sure. Our first stop on that kind of Scarborough Markham's suburban trip was a place called. It's a Vietnamese place called bomb Lula, which is Vinnie's spot that from what I've heard, and I've I've done a lot of reading. From this. This one Toronto food critic slash travel. Writer named the rush. Dos who is just thirty on really traditional ethnic cuisines that you could find in the greater Toronto area. And this place serves a base specialize in a crab and tomato noodle soup called Boone. Ru and it is it's it's funny. Because this is like it's a dish that I ate so much growing up that I actually hated it. My mom used to make it all the time because it was one of her favorites. And she made it so often that I was just I was just completely sick of it. But once I got, you know, once I went to college in once, you know, the the visit started being coming more infrequent that was when it was like, okay. So this is a true taste of home. And so that's a. I want to interrupt you for just one second. Yeah. Just to set the stage because I think it's right to observe you as an LA native. And what you do the the home that you grew up in and the restaurants that you as a young person aid at like in terms of of what I'm gonna I was gonna make the generals ation about sort of there being at the very tippy top of that kind of cuisine. What you could get in LA is very unique to to Los Angeles, probably not rivalled anywhere else in the country. I'm not gonna make that generalization because I'm not an expert. But I just want to say the bar is very high with you go into a place like this that serving dishes like this. That's what I wanted to get out. Absolutely. And you know, I- Vietnamese, and when people ask me, oh, what's the best Vietnamese food that you can get in L A? And generally, my answer is is very frustrating. I'm just like, you know, come to my mom's place, and we'll we'll serve you up something righteous. Of. But I hope my mom doesn't hear this. But you know, their version of this dish is better than my mom's. I've had I've I've had a lot of time to think about it right after I finished my bowl. I was like this was so good that it didn't even remind me of home. It reminded me that you know. Oh, yeah. It reminded me of all the times where my mom like missed ingredient or like took a took a half measure because it was on par with some of the best versions she's ever made of it. And now was when I was like, oh, wow. Okay. This this is a very legitimate restaurant. Apologies. Mrs Chow, we would never demean or diminish your your efforts. Mrs chow. Yeah.
