If UNC made this mistake randomly, and if you could get data on these kids in a few years, there must be at least a few good papers to be written.

  • Scallion pancake*
  • Turnip and ham pastry

Special cold dishes

  • Aromatic beef
  • Wine chicken

  • Shredded pork with Szechuan cabbage soup
  • Shredded pork with bean curd potage

I can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough for someone looking for an inexpensive, delicious, and authentic meal in New York.

Free tunes, every week

Apple gives away two or three tracks each week, but they can only be downloaded during the week.

Music for Robots‘ choices can be hit-or-miss for my taste, but has introduced me to some real favorites like Joey Beats, Bishop Allen (who are somehow releasing an EP a month this year), Luke Temple, and Miss Fairchild.
