While I was browsing through the menu, I noticed that they offered lotus root chips as an appetizer. I didn’t order them, but all of a sudden, I had this craving for them. I know. Odd, right? How can you crave something you’ve never had before? But I did.

I’m not too ashamed to admit that I get grouchy when I’m hungry. I’m also not too ashamed, though a little embarrassed (just a little) to say that I used to shake my cereal box to find the granola clusters to eat first.
