Feast with the Famine

I stole the idea for this dish from my favorite restaurant in the world, Mr. Chopsticks in Denton, Texas. However, it has recently come to my attention that many of you do not live in North Texas, and that others don’t appreciate food being served by disinterested art students with beards and without bras. None of the waitstaff could tell me the ingredients in this dish because they are all too busy snorting lines off of Devendra Banhart cds, so I was left to fend for myself. This is my interpretation of “Spicy Mixed Vegetables with Tofu.” Now that I’ve typed it out, that title sucks. Henceforth, this dish shall be called “Boy Division,” and it is taken ...
