“OK. What else?”

“OK. What else?”

The gal’s taking a food order at max speed over the phone. She reads all the items back. “OK. Xié xié (thank you)!”

She clacks her way back to the kitchen.

Pretty soon she reappears with my plate of kung pao tofu. Hmm. Looks fine. Just not sure if it’s genuine Uyghur food…
