In Other News – 18 October 2016

2 min read


When I was a young lad, I loved Sundays. Not because I was keen for the weekend to be over or anything oddly misguided like that. Instead, Sundays were when we’d head out to Chinatown. The old one in Johannesburg’s Commissioner Street, before a new wave of Chinese immigrants established Cyrildene as their culinary base.

I loved it, mostly because we’d always pick up a dozen (or two!) freshly steamed pork buns, or char Siu Bao. Soft, steamed bread that ensconces a filling of chopped barbecued pork, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Sweet, salty, delicious – and one of my fondest memories. A man without a pork bun in his hand can never be a whole man. Cheers, United Front Games.

      I never had a pork bun. The chinese joint in our valley looks a bit dodge…

        If there are lots of chinese people eating there then you shouldn’t hesitate. Sometimes the dodgy looking places make the best food.

          I had a Chow Mein once. It was… horrible. Like the beef was soaked in sunlight liquid. When it comes to pork, I take ZERO chances. I am too young and pretty to die.

            That doesnt even qualify as chinese food.

            Really? So what would you recommend then? Keeping in mind I have a bit of a delicate stomach and exotic foods tends to upset me a bit? (Serious question.)
