Cycle 5 – Item 322
23 (Sun) November 2014
in my apartment
-Malate, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-
with EK, BJH, et al.
Try Every Item at Tao Yuan (25) (see also TEITY)
Eating my way through the restaurant’s entire menu, currently at 222 items.
Tasted 6 new items tonight, bringing the total to 141 items tasted thus far, 81 items remaining, averaging 5.6 items per visit, on pace to finish at TEITY 40.
Got a tabletop induction grill. Powerful. Quiet. Flat. Slick. (Pricey.) Having already brought my cast iron pot from Korea, I am equipped to make shabu shabu.
Shabu shabu + Ki + Tao Yuan = Shabukity.
For the pilot implementation, I used the opportunity to advance TEITY by ordering several items from the hot pot menu as takeout. Items amenable to transportation, things that I couldn’t prepare myself at home. While the food per se was hit and miss, they did make the experience much more dynamic than sliced beef alone would have. I should do this whenever I can.
