Never be afraid to get dirty, but be sufficiently sure-footed to avoid the abyss of contamination.

Mrs. Shan

It’s been a family favorite for about a decade, and much at the Eurasian Eatery remains the same. The staple items on the menu are still available: Crimean Curried Lasagna, Florentine Dumplings, Black Bean Moussaka. There are still chalk boards on the wall that feature the daily specials and Adam Sobel’s “Certified Orgasmic” desserts. Hmm… perhaps we should be careful about what we feed the baby.

Something is strange, though. Where is Mrs. Shan (Xian, Hsian?), the friendly owner who has greeted us for so many years? I ask about her and get the following response:

Oh, she retired and moved to Pennsylvania to be with her son. She gave the restaurant to two of her favorite employees.

The family reminisces a little more about Mrs. Shan. Our source responds:

Well, she was 80, and now she doesn’t have to work 18 hour days anymore. In fact, I bet she’s skiing in Stroudsburg as we speak.

Happy skiing, Mrs. Shan!
