for lunch yesterday i decided to go try out the local A&J restaurant. the restaurant serves various chinese noodle and meat dishes and there’s this one particular soup that i really like but haven’t had in years. i’ve stayed away from spicy foods because my body really doesn’t react well to them, even though i do like a little spice.

i thought things would be just fine so i ordered the hot and spicy beef noodle soup. it was every bit as good as i remembered it, but it was a warm summer day and the restaurant didn’t have air conditioning. sweat started to pour down my face as i continued to eat the food. it was so bad that the waitress gave me extra napkins without me asking for them. how embarassing.

it was good noodle soup, though.
