Just like the rest of us, this fork is tired of the now endless stream of food photos.
Everyone is sick of seeing so-called ‘food porn’ on social media, right?
Our mission is to eat, drink (sometimes to moderate excess) and have as much fun as ‘hunanly’ possible. At Henry’s Hunan Restaurant that is exactly what we did.
So what if Mom told you not to play with your food? Real Running Fork food fun requires a generous dig in first. Stir it round, mess it up and get it down your neck till the hunger subsides.
Then snap a live on the scene meal-in-progress imaget. That’s the photo we want anyway.
And anyone who has shared a meal with Hong Kong or Mainland Chinese residents knows this is true. Except in Asia it’s a more like a ‘compete with your sibling’s food fight or go home hungry kind of fun.
One word up – keeping it simple at Henry’s Hunan helps make the meal.
There are over 60 dishes on its menu, so this time it had to be the lightly fried pork, bell peppers and onion.
This hot-sour succulent delight (US$ 8) paired very nicely with brown rice and several frosty Tsingtao beers.
Henry’s Hunan is a San Francisco Bay Area institution, serving Hunan food to hungry messy plate customers since 1974 from four outlets around the City.
