I ate Chinese food this evening.
To some of you, this means nothing.
Others of you visited me during a week-long hospital stay after chowing down on an infected spring roll a few years back.
I hadn't even stepped into a Chinese restaurant since. And get this straight: I used to love Chinese food. When I lived in DC, carry-out stir-fry and egg-drop soup were on the lunch menu no less than three times a week.
But after that bout fighting the demons and leaking from several orifices, it took this long to get back into the chop suey line.
So I just want to give a shout out to Fortune Palace Buffet on 175 in Jessup. Your decor was reasonable (if a bit frigging bright) and your chow mein was right on the money. May you live long and prosper and may you never fill your customers with e.Coli.
