On a lighter note and a continuation from the Changstar thread. The Bao NYC Arrived from 2:00pm. This stuff is very good. Thin style wrapper, but they manage to keep it super hot, juicy, and pressurized inside that if you bite into it without poking a hole first, the pork juicy will squirt out across the table. Only downside is that the black vinegar of whatever dipping sauce they provided was kind of weak and no slivers of ginger. China Blue NYC Thicker style wrapper. Avoid. Not very juicy and pork lacks sufficient fat content and tastes a bit off. However, this place makes a fantastic Chinese beef noodle soup. 5 out of 10 on hot / spicy meter - Asian scale, not white man scale, where my max tolerance is a 7 on the Asian scale. To get an idea on what white man scale hot / spicy means: a dude from Big Bear Lake who participated in the chili contests up there gave me his chili, but said he screwed up that I should be careful because it was an 11 out of 10 (white man scale). It turned out to be 3 on the Asian man scale. Anyway, this was very good with legit stuff: plenty of star anise, preserved mustard greens, stewed beef with connective tissue, strong broth - not watered down.
