ike drama: still hungry?

i'd say i've eaten pretty well since i've been back from LA. the lake house, brasserie max and julie, fu fu cafe, and houston's. i tried to get my pho fix in midtown yesterday but no vietnamese joints were open. headed to chinatown and most places are still closed except some restos in the dun huang shopping center and sterling plaza across the street.

pork and chive dumplings at fu fu cafe.

himalaya is open and the chowhounds and i are headed there for lunch tomorrow!
