Journey to the West

23rd Dec 2010: Our journey to the west coast began on 23rd December 2010. Our movers came around 9am and had everything loaded on the truck by noon. The building slapped us with a "standard" carpet cleaning bill and we said goodbye to our little apartment.
Yayong had a flight to NY and got a twin hotel room where she could put us up for the night before we start driving the next day. We were starving by the time we got to her hotel in Brooklyn. Thank God for the gyros stall outside the hotel and I was grateful to be able to have gyros once more before we depart from NY. It was good and too spicy, just the way I like it.
We found a place on called Traif to have an early Christmas dinner that evening and arrived about 30 minutes late after the confusion with main and service roads, which put us on the Brooklyn bridge and back.

According to our waiter Traif means non-kosher, and their chef has traveled within Asia quite a bit so some of the items on the menu have Asian influence. We started off with a little spicy broth to warm up. Tasted like meesiam gravy but it was nice for a cold night. The menu here features small plates so we ordered some to share. I yelped it. Among the items we ordered our favorite was probably the seared foie with fingerling, ham chips and sunny egg. It was goood~~
