Our next place was supposed to be a BBQ place called Allen and Son’s, but they were closed (not sure why) so we ended up at…

Stop 6 – The Barbecue Joint:

This was the place that had the awesome chowder (smoked scallops + bacon):

Stop 7 – Tung Yi Fung (dim sum):
When we walked in, we knew it was a good place because everyone there was Chinese. I mean everyone. Mark says a white guy walked in as we were leaving, but he was a serviceman. They spoke Cantonese everywhere, so I just pointed at all the dishes we wanted.

Mark approves.

They sat us at a table with two older Chinese women who attempted to talk to me, but I just smiled and shook my head at them saying “sorry, I don’t speak Chinese.” After that, they discussed amongst themselves about how I did/didn’t look Chinese and stared at me a few times. Dim sum meal costed us $25 total for all of us including tax and tip. It was awesome.

Stop 7.5 – Baked:

    VERY jealous, mostly because you went to a place called THE Barbecue Joint! AND they had scallop and bacon chowder, jigga what?! That Italian wedding soup looks delicious! Unfortunately, I don’t know if I’d ever go to Cleveland, unless on a road trip. =P
