[MUSIC] [LAUGH] The ramen noodles were horrible. I paid an extra dollar for it to be spicy. And it wasn't even spicy. White people. I mean white people, I am a white person. We are white people. We're white people. We're not white people. I ordered oolong tea but the tea that was delivered was a hot tea. That tasted very much like peaches and potentially another fruit. It's hot tea, Liz. So it's going to be hot. And then tea is ginger, plum, oolong. So it potentially tasted like plums. It was like an overly crispy Chick-Fil-A nugget. With some kind of mayo dipping sauce. That just sounds delicious to me. [LAUGH] Yeah, what's wrong with that? I really enjoy crispy Chick Fil A nuggets and mayonnaise. While seated at the bar, an employee, who I perceived to be a manager, prepared raw meat in boiling water on that bar. On the bar. Right in front of me while I was eating. Before your very eyes. Wow. We don't use meat, boiled or otherwise, in cocktails. We have tamarind syrup, tamarind pulp. Tamarind meat, if you will. The overall effect ends up feeling like a hipster-driven Cracker Barrel-esque attempt at authenticity. Rather than a labor of love. That's just rude. It's just rude. [LAUGH] [MUSIC]
