Thien An roast catfish

or raw like the wound that results from sprinting to catch your baby after she's just fallen from a window and having to slide on pavement and removing at least 3 layers of skin from your knees to catch her.
that kind of raw - incredibly intense and totally necessary.

not uncooked. (i think if it were actually uncooked it would have probably had a fighting chance of eating us. is a big fishie.) sorry for any confusion.

Thien An roast catfish

i wasn't complaining. i was simply *stating*.
the vibe of the place was actually a lot like many of the italian banquet-hall type places my family would go to when i was a kid. the Thien An ceiling was a little higher maybe; the walls a little less pink probably. i just hadn't seen anything like it in a long time and certainly didn't expect it here.

the fish, with it's tear stained cheeks and punch-you-in-the-face-catfish-ness, still haunts my nose's imagination. i can still hear even the cucumber shouting at me that IT'S A CUCUMBER! *smack* AND THOSE ARE MINT LEAVES! *smack* OVER THERE! *smack*smack*
holy crap - such intense, raw food.
feral indeed.
