Likewise, disparate foods always grabs my attention. New England Fish & Chips & Chinese Food remains one of my favorite posts I have ever written. (Rosco's Chicken & Waffles has never done it for me, but is there another restaurant in the world whose name is more fun to say?)
So when I came across a banner with the grammatically brutal reading of "Chinese & Mexico Food," I would have tried it even if my stomach was stuffed with lobster rolls and Belgian fries. The fact that it was lunchtime and I had yet to eat did not increase the odds of me trying it, simply my excitement.
M̶e̶x̶i̶c̶o̶Mexican? Or vice versa?
I will not be returning to New China Star. Every Chinese take-out joint I have tried in Brooklyn, with only one exception, has been better. The fact that they serve tacos here is not enough to bring me back.
