2023.02.01 06:23 LNERA1 A Vietnamese Student's Pointless thoughts on CalDining's "Pho Bar" and How it can Improve

The execution of the phở bar at Foothill today was although very interesting, below CalDining expectations, which really says something for many Cal students. If you disagree and think the phở was good, please tell me to help me prove I'm going insane and elaborate why. I'd like to point out possible suggestions to improve the 'pho bar' experience if they would like to reintroduce it. I'll be sending these suggestions in the CalDining feedback form but thought it would be nice to share these with others.
Before I give my suggestions. Here are some things I did enjoy from the phở bar today.
  1. There were plenty of ingredients for us to add including bean sprouts, lime, cilantro, leaves (can't remember what kind), brisket (which actually might have been the tri-tip), and much more! There was even a condiment section with chili, hoisin, and fish sauce! I genuinely felt like I was at a phở restaurant for a brief moment.
  2. The label for fish sauce was "nuoc nam" <-spelled exactly that way. I was very impressed that CalDining used the Vietnamese name for fish sauce. I'm more familiar with it being spelled as 'nước mắm', spelled with an 'm', but that label helped me remember that the alternative spelling for nước mắm exists, so kudos to them!
  3. The beef brisket was well-seasoned and overall not bad.
  4. Side note, but the cà phê sữa đá (Vietnamese Iced Coffee) was really refreshing. I honestly think that it should be served regularly. It's almost on par with the Passion Orange Guava juice and is the best coffee I've ever had from CalDining.
Phở is a complicated dish, I'll give them that. However, it was far from decent in my honest opinion. Phở K & K, a restaurant that many Vietnamese Cal students have strong opinions about, is much superior to this. Here are my suggestions.
  1. Cook the noodles thoroughly before serving them: The noodles had the consistency and texture of bean sprouts. In other words, they were raw and quite crunchy. Perhaps the chefs decided to undercook the noodles before serving into let the noodles simmer in the broth when added to gain the noodles' optimal texture. However, the given broth wasn't even warm enough to do that.
  2. Serve the broth at a higher temperature: As stated earlier, this can help cook the noodles as its being served. I doubt that there would be a point where the noodles become overcooked and soggy, Also, many people don't scoop as much on their plates so it cools down quickly, especially on a paper plate. It doesn't have to be boiling hot, but at least make it as hot as the other soups that are regularly served.
  3. Give us chopsticks: They're cheap and don't have to be reusable. Last semester, Cafe 3 served an Asian meal that they provided chopsticks with students. Although it was pretty funny seeing everyone in the dining hall eat phở with a fork.
  4. Have servers serve the phở to the students: Many students were spilling the broth while struggling to scoop it into their small paper bowls. There was soup all over the counter, which is the result of students waiting thirty minutes in line and quickly grabbing ingredients. This is a huge waste of soup which could have easily been prevented.
  5. Add more seasoning to the broth: It tasted like it was diluted with water. I honestly have no clue on how someone could make a broth taste like that.
  6. This is a little extra but maybe provide a brief history and overview of phở and how it is commonly eaten: This would be a brilliant idea to establish with every dish at CalDining. Something like this would help familiarize students with the dish and how it is commonly eaten to help them understand exactly what's being served.
Why does something like this matter and why am I suddenly being so picky? I understand that CalDining's approach to introduce a diverse menu is extremely important in order to celebrate diversity and inclusion. I also understand that I shouldn't expect a five-star meal from CalDining. As a Vietnamese person, I get very excited when UC Berkeley's dining halls serve dishes of my ethnicity. However, I left the dining hall today feeling offended, insulted, and even a little sick. I didn't expect perfection, but even after so many negative experiences at dining halls, I didn't think that the phở at CalDining would be this abysmal. When a dining hall botches up cultural food, it ironically gives a bad outlook to not only CalDining, but also the culture it tries to introduce to its students. Imagine someone trying phở for the first time at CalDining and being given raw noodles and cold broth. Would a dish like this really encourage that person to want to try phở again?
If the point of serving phở was to demonstrate inclusivity and diversity as the #1 public university during the "lunar new year season", then the execution of it shouldn't have been this disappointing for so many people. If CalDining chooses to reintroduce the phở bar, then hopefully following these suggestions would help make phở become one of CalDining's most favored items!

2023.01.31 15:37 Electrical-Equal-827 Best food on Westgate Road?

There are so many interesting looking Middle Eastern / South Asian shops, restaurants and cafes on Westgate Road and I’ve barely scratched the surface. I’m curious to know which ones people would recommend - either for groceries or hot food.
(Posting this because my MIL dropped us off a delicious lamb curry and naan bread from somewhere on Westgate Road yesterday and I can’t get her to tell me which one it came from…)

2023.01.30 15:25 Extension_Size8422 Armys getting mad at NCT 127 got out of control

I think it started on Allkpop and spread to TikTok and Twitter. For context, NCT 127 just finished touring and were live. Here is the full clip as what has caused a fanwar was cutting the clip into segments: https://twitter.com/markhyuckzens/status/1619602214217211905
Jungwoo mentioned they kept being mistaken for another group on tour. He didn't want to say BTS explicitly but Taeil missed that cue because he just said 'BTS?' Jungwoo replies 'no, not that one' and explains he brought it up because he thought it was funny. Taeyong says 'Oh you mean the time Yuta said 'Yes we are'?'.
Mark moves on to talk about how they went to a restaurant and Jungwoo got a free drink and compliments the waiter's service and how nice the waiter was in general. Taeyong gets confused and says 'then I guess you should thank that group', implying he thought they got a free drink because the waiter thought they were BTS. He wasn't there with them because he had health issues.
They then explain this was a different restaurant with a male waiter and Taeyong says 'Oh I thought you meant at the cafe with Erika (a waitress).' They mention this waitress was really friendly and even played a game with them. It is implied she may have mistook them for BTS at first maybe.
To me, there's nothing controversial about this situation at all but it's a bit confusing. It's obvious they're a bit fed-up of being called BTS because they laugh and it's implied Yuta got so done at one point he just said 'Yes we are'. There was some complaints from Korean netizens on how it is rude to call BTS 'that group' and this means 127 were disrespecting BTS by not saying BTS-sunbaenim. The translation stops before NCT correct Taeyong (who got the wrong idea). This implies NCT got given free drinks because they were mistaken for BTS.
This is where it went nuts. It began with anger from Armys for NCT not saying sunbaenim then to anger on how NCT should have corrected the waiter and not accepted the free drinks, because then they are 'enabling racism' and impersonating BTS. The misinformation mill went crazy and the narrative became 'NCT purposely pretend to be BTS to get free things'.
Due to the first translation being cut, NCTzens' main defence was if the waiter mistook them for BTS, that is not NCT's fault nor are they taking advantage of BTS for accepting the free drinks, especially if they were given as a result of xenophobia/racism aka assuming every group of Asian males is BTS. They've been hearing that microaggression the entire time they tour and who are you to police their reaction to racism?
I'm not Korean so I'm not going to put an opinion on the sunbaenim thing but it IS clear they were not trying to intentionally disrespect BTS by saying 'that group', Taeyong just wanted to avoid mentioning them by name (except Taeil didn't get the message lol). And I'm not sure whether Taeil needs to say BTS-sunbaenim just for saying their group name.
NCT are getting a lot of hate right now and it is possibly over a completely fictional situation as the free drink may have just been the generosity of the restaurant and unrelated to BTS, but of course barely anyone except NCTzens are gonna read the clarification and we're stuck with a bunch of Armys who just think NCT go around impersonating BTS for freebies and will use this narrative to attack them. Saying all sorts of vile things about the members, making fun of Haechan's heart palpitations...and he wasn't even on the tour? Even bashing unrelated Dream members. Hate comments veiled with racism and saying NCT are the reason BTS get a bad reputation because they impersonate them, as if it's not Armys who give BTS a bad rep.
What began as a NCT 127 sharing an experience with racism then moving onto talk about a free drink got so insanely misconstrued and people are even doxxing each other over it.
In my opinion, even if they did accept a free drink from being mistaken as BTS it hardly warrants the backlash they are getting. NCT APOLOGISE TO BTS is trending on Twitter right now. What do they want? An apology letter? A statement from SM?
It reminds me of a reel I watched where a black guy goes to Japan and a shop owner thinks he's will.i.am. At first he tries to explain he isn't but the owner is so excited he just plays along and even sings and the shop owner gives him his food for free. If I am using the reasoning of Armys, then this man should apologise to will.i.am and is also enabling racism. If I am normal, it's kinda funny, which was what most of the comments were saying.

2023.01.29 21:45 JareBear313 Religious Studies and Philosophy Graduate Programs - Questions (and chance me)

*obligatory cliché "I told myself I wouldn't do this"*
Hi, everyone. After not fretting about applications for almost a full month after submitting everything, my blissful ignorance of GradCafe's existence was shattered and I'm in full vomit-twice-a-day-until-I-hear-something mode. Is anyone else applying for RLST and/or Philosophy programs? I think my stats are good, but I have a few concerns that are keeping me awake at night.
Personally, I'm applying for the following:
- Direct Entry PhD in Philosophy at UToronto
- UVA PhD in Religious Studies
- Yale MAR (I actually applied to the RLST PhD, but my POI emailed me about having my application transferred to the MAR at the Divinity School, and we talked about it over the phone, where it was basically "sorry you're going to get rejected for reasons 'out of your control,' but I'd love to have you)
- Harvard MTS. I heard all applicants get an interview soon, so I'd like to hear any tips you have, especially as someone with interests I find difficult to explain/justify (more on that later) to a non-specialist.
- UChicago MA in Religion
- DAAD scholarship for MA in any discipline
My primary concern is that I'm so on the border between religious studies and philosophy that I'm worried I'll appear too RLST for Toronto's philosophy dept and too philosophy for religion/divinity programs. I am a philosopher at heart, but Toronto is the only real department I've seen where non-Western philosophy isn't relegated to the less-serious sounding category of "religon." On the other hand, UVA is where the POI of my dreams is employed (Yale is where the second best POI of my dreams is).
My interests are specifically the history of philosophical and theological exchange between Muslims and Hindus, Islamic and Indic philosophy, and interreligious thought. Secondary interests might be considered as problems in intercultural intellectual exchange, philosophy of religion, ethics, modernity, etc. The fact that I'm wanting to study the *conjunction(s)* of Hinduism and Islam also make me terrified that I'm going to be seen as too all over the place (very few know Sanskrit, Arabic, and Persian).
Also I'm an undergrad so feel extremely pessimistic about my chances at UVA. Toronto's direct entry is just for BA applicants, but I feel like my chances are 0 after a professor told me they accept like 1 American per year (can anyone confirm that?).
My actual stats:
- Religious Studies and Philosophy double major, triple minors in Classics, South Asian Studies, and Islamic Studies
- 4.0 at a T15. I know it's an "elite" school, but a bit scared that my uni is seen as too STEM/business etc. (which it is) and so it won't matter.
- Honors theses in my majors, and in the separate honors program of the College of Arts and Science
- Two journal publications: one on Spinoza in an undergraduate and graduate journal: one on Descartes and the Upanishads in an undergraduate journal (both forthcoming though). One pop/non-peer-review article for a tiny online think tank about 'Ibn Arabi and Aristotelian virtue ethics.
- Lots of language training. A year of Arabic, 2.5 of Sanskrit, and 2 CLS scholarships (2 summers equivalent to about 2 academic years, I think) for Urdu as far as research languages pertinent to my area go. I also have a year of Greek and German and 2 years of Latin from when I thought I wanted to be a classicist. Unfortunately, Persian will be important and I haven't had the opportunity to formally study it in undergrad. Worried about not being prepared with Persian (though I communicated to committees that I've been informally studying it by myself and with a professor here who's trying to improve his reading ability in it). This large number of languages increases my worry that I'm going to look too jack of all trades. Can also read French.
- Did a humanitarian project in Cairo with a grant from my uni. Just won an AAR undergraduate research grant that I'm using to work on my RLST honors thesis. ($5k, but I was notified last week and had to update my applications; not sure if they're going to take much notice since they've probably already done lots of review?)
- A language studies award from my uni for Urdu, and I'm a member of Phi Alpha Theta (admittedly, I have done absolutely nothing with my membership. Feel bad that I'm not in PBK because my uni requires two semesters of calculus which I'm not touching lmfao).
- Was an RA for a project that digitally catalogued Syriac manuscripts. Didn't do much except proofreading and copying.
- Did NOT take the GRE. I would absolutely bomb it.
Maybe I'm being paranoid. I basically worked as hard as I possibly could in undergrad, having taken 18 hours since the second semester of my sophomore year. My rec letters should be pretty good, but I'm just worried my interests are so niche, while all the same time looking pretty unfocused/wide, that it won't be appealing. I feel like absolute shit about both of my writing samples, but I got As on them and worked forever. The one I submitted for UToronto got published, but I think lots of people withdrew their submissions from the journal and so I don't know how reliable of an indicator of quality the journal acceptance really is.
I am a white male (not saying I don't understand preferential admissions for underprivileged groups), but super low income and have a "sob story," and I'm not gonna sit here and say I didn't emphasize it in relevant parts of my applications.

2023.01.29 20:43 Cheezbu20 Why are Asian girls so agressive in approaching foreigners?

Hello guys, I am neither east asian or white(american) but I have noticed the relationship dynamics and issues that have been discussed here for a quite long time in media, internet, movies, tv shows, real life stories etc
I was just always curious what motivated girls in the ea/sea region to be so strongly attracted to foreigners/westerners and this sub always had interesting answers and explanations.
There has been one female thai youtubeinfluencer popping on my social feed lately, and I wanted to share her video here because I think her example very easily reflects the dynamics you are talking about here.
You can see that in this video, and several others I have seen from her, she is hitting on guys really agressively on Omegle, trying to get compliments, approval etc acting pretty desperate. if you go to her profile, she has like 100 videos and all of them are of exact same content. - her flirting with western guys, telling them stuff like "I love you", "do you like small asian girls" and similiar cringe content. P.S. She already has a (white) boyfriend and still continues this trend and flirty process with random strangers.
I have noticed similiar approach of women to flirting in different vlogs when western men travel to ea/sea and you can hear random local women hitting on them from the street, cafe, shop etc
So my post is kind of a question, how do you explain this behaviour? first of all, can your region's culture/gender roles/etc influence this style of woman's straight forward/pushy behaviour towards man, which you will not see probably anywhere in rest of the world.
And secondly, do you think the issue of "men fetishizing asian women" is the result of asian women's own behaviour and attitude towards themselves and western world. Because if we look at the example of the blogger above, the way she acts and presents her self to these guys, kind of explains where would "fetishization" come from.
I hope I don't come across as judgmental or nosy. but I just wanted to share about this blogger with you, and also ask a question as a person who is interested in cultures/sociology. I will probably delete this post later.✌️

2023.01.27 19:33 sungazr Which Manhattan/Brooklyn neighborhood is best for me (26M)?

I am a single 26 yo male who works from home and I’m planning to move from TX. My rent budget is $3,000/mo and ideally, I would like a studio/1br, but I’m also open to having roommates.
Things I want: - Date and make friends easily with people around my age (Idk anyone in NYC) - Close to night life - Close to places where I can work remotely (cafes, etc.) - Being near creative people (I make music, am into fashion, and want to take pottery classes) - Near asian grocery store - Good food spots - Close to a park - Avoid heavy frat/finance bro vibe
I’ve been looking at East Village, Lower East Side, and Williamsburg. Which one would be best for me? I’m also very open to other suggestions too!
I plan on doing some research and then visiting for a week to find an apartment before I move. Is a week enough time to secure an apartment?

2023.01.27 16:33 kiefer-reddit Okay to stay near Taksim for 2+ months?

I am coming to Istanbul for about 2.5 months, starting in February. I've been looking for temporary apartments and have found some good ones around Taksim. Is this a bad idea?
My initial thought was to avoid this area, as it seems like the "Times Square" of Istanbul. If someone was visiting New York, I wouldn't recommend they stay there, and instead went for the West Village, Upper West Side, etc.

2023.01.27 07:17 Djyunfaqp96 Asian man looking to date an American

And no, not for your green card
If you want an authentic Asian experience (east / south east asia), hit me up
Fast facts: 21M, short Asian stereotype (but I'm packing the bruin size down there, dw), enjoys Asian food (will take you to northern cafe and sawtelle often), huge nerd, good at math (and can help with your homework), have some accent
Ideal relationship: if you are looking to date an Asian (duh, and not just Asian American), if you want to come and visit Asia (or migrate there? 😳), and either long term or short term works or hookups (although not my preference)
About you: 18+, any height, major, and simply not Asian (i.e non international student), would be cool to date non Americans too

2023.01.26 10:42 sillymanbilly American abroad unsure about path forward

I'm a self-taught frontend developer, and I've been living in Asia for 5 years. While abroad, I taught English while learning web dev in my free time, and recently, I got my first full-time dev job at an outsourcing company that needs help with project management for new English-speaking clients (the reason they hired me). The job is great for me to build real experience now because I'm basically a junior dev now and they want me on the front lines doing real development with my team so in about 6 months, I can lead some projects and help them get more contracts. At that point, they'll want me doing no coding, just management, because frankly, paying me to just be a junior dev is not worth it to them since there are Asian peers who will do it for 1/4 of my salary. So they're investing in me and letting me grow as a dev first.
Right now, I'm very happy to be working with great industry-standard tech such as React with NextJS, Strapi, styled-components, MUI, and Storybook as well as being under some very talented senior devs who help me learn a lot, so I'm grateful to use these things and learn in a real setting.
However, my long term goal is to be a stable and well-rounded dev back in the US, so I worry that if I follow their lead and move into management too quickly, it will look negative on my CV when I'm ready to move back to the US and seek to apply for a junior level job in a year or two.
Do you think it's better to move with this company into management despite still being a very green new dev or should I apply for other dev jobs when it comes to the point where they don't let me do dev work anymore?
