Soaking In The Essence

I had been meaning to do this for a long time but only got round to it recently:

I got a chinese takeaway and ate it whilst watching this episode in an effort to get the spirit and flavour of it. Coupled with the fact that my family were new to the idea of the chinese takeaway and frequented "Yeungs" a lot around about the time SH was originally shown, it really helped with the nostalgia factor too.

Simple things... :)

Hey Stef,

It's great when you can take something like food or an old TV show (or in this case, both) and let it transport you back in time. Those moments are priceless.

I'd never thought of eating Chinese while whatching Chinatown Memories, but now that you mention it, I might give it a whirl next time we have some leftovers.

I wonder if there are any other good food/Street Hawk episode combos out there?

How about:
  • Fire on a Wing = Buffalo Wings
  • Dog Eat Dog = Hot Dogs
  • The Unsinkable 453 = Oreos & Milk
  • The Adjuster = Bran Muffins & Prunes :o
