What luck I have!  My Tandem Partner, a lovely Italian graduate student meant to help me learn more Italian, introduced me a few weeks ago to an amazing Chinese restaurant.  We headed there with a few of her roommates and friends, and it was amazing.  They served some sort of orange sake drink (which was interesting), and then we all ordered different dishes and tried each others.  Everything was so good – sorry Chinese-American restaurants, I think the Chinese-Italian restaurants have you beat.  And, as you can see, they served fortune cookies!  And here everyone always told me that fortune cookies were only served in the States!  (taken 9.10.2014)
