MORPHEUS: I am an ox, snake-crushing, heavy-footed.
CHORONZON: I am an anthrax, butcher bacterium, warm-life destroying.
MORPHEUS: I am a world, space-floating, life-nurturing.
CHORONZON: I am a nova, all-exploding… planet-cremating.
MORPHEUS: I am the Universe — all things encompassing, all life embracing.
CHORONZON: I am Anti-Life, the Beast of Judgement. I am the dark at the end of everything. The end of universes, gods, worlds… of everything. Sss. And what will you be then, Dreamlord?
MORPHEUS: I am hope.

The first time I walked down this street I was 4. It was night. It was cold. I was tired. It was dirty and people were sleeping in the alcoves. The family wanted to ring in the New Year at Horton Plaza by the fountain. I think I had a good time before I fell asleep…
Daytime. It’s a bit cleaner now and the streets are filled with attractive women in skirts and shorts. Huge lunch crowd slowly trickles out as I sit and wait for my lunch.
I started with the chicken yakisoba. Very good flavors from the sauce and the egg noodles. Liked the texture of the egg noodles. A bit like lo mein only not as soft. The chicken breast was a little dry.
Pork gyoza had a crunchy skin and delicious pork filling. Among the best I’ve had.
On previous trips I also tried:
Shrimp tempura – The shrimp were large and the light crunchy batter created a delicious flavor.
beef shorts ribs – Tender beef with excellent flavor a bit like the kalbi ribs at Homestyle Hawaiian.
Outside. I watch them build a new fountain at Horton Plaza. It’s nice. I was here in the old days when the old fountain sent forth streams of water into the sky. Makes me think of hope…
