Diasporic Dining: The New Ice Age

Super K Panda Fortune Cookie 

Life has changed right before our eyes. Instead of being hit by a comet and entering into a new Ice Age, a whole new generation of dinosaurs, the Trumposaurus Rex, the Putinosaurus and the Kim Jong unosarus are hopefully being rendered extinct. Back in the 60s New Age meant lighting incense and reading Khalil Gibran's The Prophet. “Rigged and stolen” and “fake news” are now the shibboleths of the “base." There's always a downside. Unfortunately the baby is thrown out with the bath water. Chinese food is one of the game changers. You’re challenged to find the old Cantonese specialties. Along with all the Neanderthals, the little bags of crunchy noodles and fortune cookies have almost vanished from the face if the earth.
