Day 307 - Shanghaiese Mince Pork Noodles

...at the favourite Shanghaiese place in To Kwa Wan. I went for the Mince Pork Noodles this time, but think I prefer the Dam Dam Mein.

On a side note (and somewhat related to Shanghai), I was watching "Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer" last night, and the (lack of) Asian comprehension displayed was unbelievable. First they're flying along in a jet and report about being over "South Eastern China" (which is pretty much where Hong Kong is), the next moment, they're flying alongside (and blowing up) the Great Wall (Northern China and approximately the same distance from HK as across all of continental USA from North to South), and then they crash in Shanghai (Eastern China). To top it all of, at the suggestion of a wedding they say: "I've got an idea" and are mystically transported to a very Japanese wedding (not sure if they're pretending all of Asia's the same or just leaving huge holes?)... Surely this is the kind of thing most Westerners would notice? Maybe not...
