I’m reading a novel, “The Last Chinese Chef” by Nicole Mones. It is illuminating to learn about the philosophy behind the ancient culinary history. Traditional round chopping blocks are mentioned in the story. I edited this image later to hide faces.

We at Dim Sum ate our favorite multi-story Dim Sum house, The Golden Dragon. They have a wide varity to choose from.

I don’t know if there is any significance to the Buddha heads in the tree trunks, just caught my eye.
