So my NYE was enjoyable but rather uneventful. It was a nice evening spent watching the entire last season of House MD.
New Year’s day, however, is a different story.
It was started off on the right foot, with a hearty breakfast at the International Mall in Westmont suburbs of Illinois.
The International Mall isn’t really a mall. It’s more like a Chinese snacks outpost, as you can see from the picture above.
And there’s normally a line on the weekends/holidays for breakfast…
But, it’s worth the wait…
You tiao and a helping of fresh soymilk (you can get savory soymilk too) is one of my favorite breakfasts. Of course, this doesn’t compare to what you could get in China, but it’s the closest you’ll get in Chicago.
