The pinnacle of summer to me is a long ride in the sun, followed by Chinese take-out. Back in G-ville, my take-out spot was China Express. When they closed after I left town, I felt guilty…like they closed because I didn’t go there 2-5 times a week. Here in Seattle, I go to Little Shanghai on Capitol Hill. Usually not too busy, they cook it fresh to order. Since it’s on the roof lot of QFC, it’s not so sketch that I feel anxious leaving my Sycip just outside the door.
Ride another 8 blocks home, eat, and then pass out on the floor. Call me simple, but that’s what I love about summer.
