Talk is cheap, but that’s not the case for my brother!
It’s finally here…the bespoke invitation to witness my little brother, Ernest Benjamin, accepting his Juris Doctor, and I’m super excited!
The family and I are so proud of this accomplishment, and applaud my brother for his perseverance through hard work and sacrifices while in law school.
Ernie the Attorney, charging per word. :)

Job well done, Benny!

Walking through the doors of Xi’an Famous Foods in Midtown Manhattan after a long day of traveling on an empty stomach was a sigh of relief for this New York newbie.  I was hungry for some delicious food to warm my body and soul on this very cool Easter Sunday, and got just that and more. 

I picked up my order of a Spicy Cumin Lamb Burger and Stewed Pork Noodles and made my way toward the seating area, not really knowing what to expect. After finding a spot to sit, taking in my surroundings (one hot guy to my right, gents gossiping about a recent breakup to my left, and hip hop playing in the background), I took a bite of my noodles then my burger, slouched, and thanked God for leading me to this place.

The restaurant’s owner, Jason Wang, a 26 year-old Chinese born chef with a business background, out does himself with choice quality meats and impressive thick, homemade noodles all seasoned with lots of cumin (one of my favorite spices). The intense flavor of cumin in both dishes was something I’ve never experienced outside of my own cooking, and gave me a sense of comfort, all for under $20.

If you’re in the area and are looking for a quick bit to eat worth more than the prices charged, I really recommend checking this place out!
