Long-distance corrections! This is why I love the Interweb...
|Cooking up properly spelled food at China Jade.|
Just one example: In my review of China Jade (on the stands right now), I poked a little gentle fun at what I thought was a particularly winning example of phonetic spelling on the menu: the "cuminum cyminum flavored beef." Setting aside the fact that this was a particularly fantastic dish, I simply thought the description was funny. You know...goofy misspelling on a Chinese menu? Comedy gold, right? So, because I am a sucker for any grammar or spelling-based humor, I went for the cheap joke and moved on with the rest of my review.
Three cool things about this comment. One, Camdon is right. Two, I learned something new from reading his message. And three? Camdon was educating me from Anchorage, Alaska. Fucking awesome.
Oh, and one other thing I should note? I also got the phone number for China Jade wrong. It's 303-755-8518. But no one (except my editor) caught that -- and she was too late for the print copy. Although thanks to the awesomeness of the Interweb, it's correct in the online review.
