I'm in Cupertino for a product launch. We got stuff done around midnight last night, and today everyone is wandering around in a bit of a daze. Eight of us went out for a dim sum lunch, which is much more interesting when several folks in your party are Chinese, or have grown up exposed to Chinese and Asian culture. There was one dish that I'd never seen before, and we didn't try it since it did not turn up until we had reached the dessert stage of the meal. It was a stuffed green vegetable that looked like a green pepper. I was informed that it wasn't a pepper, and it tastes "very very strong!"
