It's not as if not ordering dumplings at Vanessa's Dumpling House is akin to ordering a roast beef with cheddar cheese on it at a kosher deli (which Pete once did at Jay & Lloyd's Kosher Deli out in Sheepshead Bay; sadly, this is not even a top-five ordering faux paux for Pete), but it nevertheless felt strange to Pete to deny himself the porky goodness. But Pete just didn't feel like filling his belly with fried pork and dough on a warm spring day so he got the sesame pancake with egg, kimchi, a steamed red bean bun, and a soy bean milk. Pete lamented not getting a second soy bean milk because the kimchi--which now has slices of Asian pear in it--was not for the faint of tongue. Luckily for Pete, the red bean bun--the beans tasted vaguely like Heinz Baked Beans (which isn't a bad thing, especially considering how much the Who liked them)--helped keep Pete from getting too overheated. Now, the SoHo women of spring in sundresses... Pete's lucky he knows lots of places to get soy bean milk and red bean buns.
