Michelle’s Tzatziki (Greek Yogurt) Sauce

Wrote this before I went in to […]

The Circle

The Circle

New Moon

New Moon

WHY The Chinese chicken salad. WHAT It’s not the most authentic Chinese food, not by a long shot, but New Moon makes a damn fine Chinese chicken salad and perfectly acceptable won ton soup, fried rice and stir fries—and the won ton strips with a plum dipping sauce are a tasty variation on chips and […]
