The Xiao Ye chef Eddie Huang, after a visit to the newly written up and suddenly popular restaurant A-Wah: "We cant see these neighborhoods like fish bowls we put on a shelf like lonely planet books. We like visiting those neighborhoods, we like to see the old school shit, but its easy cause we don't have to live in concrete boxes with no plumbing...The important thing is to just make sure we own the land our businesses are on."
