Sheep Scorpion Hotpot

This is for my guests at Hotpot Year of the Rooster UYE @ 75 Yummy Kitchen

Today’s menu is based on a popular hotpot style in Beijing with Sichuan spices. It’s only available at 75 Yummy Kitchen. In Chinese 羊蝎子火锅 literally means “Sheep Scorpion Hotpot”. No worry, there's no scorpion in our food. But the shape of goat spine resembles scorpion.

BOTM Anniversary


Mike M has been hosting BOTM “Burger of the Month” UYE since last February. This was from a Talk thread when Rachel B returned from her ACRONYM meeting in 2015.  After a long gap in Houston, BOTM was born. First few months, they were hosted by Rachel B. Then, Belly G, Jamie A finally, Mike M.
This mock up t-shirt was an idea to generate interest. 

Here is a quick overview of his 12 successful BOTM's. The attendance has increased month after month. It has became a popular and well-known event in Houston.

Missed You on Yelp

After the Yelp page's redesign, all the notifications like compliments, friend requests and messages are not easily visible.
Desktop version went through a major redesign. 
So sorry. I missed you.

It used to be on the home page. It's moved to upper right side of screen - hard to see. When I clicked on "About me", the notification indicator disappears. Please message me if I didn't respond to you.
