Chef and Boulette by cocokinetic

Chef and Boulette

A little Chinese take-out that serves excellent noodles and boulette (boulette is a type of dumpling, the varieties served here are scribbled in the local lingo on the menu.) I bought some take-out food for dinner, it’s my plan to watch the Euro football games and bypass the kitchen tonight.

Love that big plastic bottle of chilli sauce attached to the counter with a piece of string! Maybe the chef is fed up of people walking away and not returning with his sauce bottle. (There are small tables and chairs in the vicinity for people to use.)

Nice candid! Wonderful tones of color and textures. Enjoy your meal and the games.

Love this capture and would probably love the food...with extra hot sauce. It's great when I find a little hole in the wall restaurant with good take out food.

A very nice image that tells a story. I hope you enjoyed the food and the football. I have been following England’s journey including their win over Switzerland in a shootout. I have also been excitedly following Canada’s progress in the Copa America tournament. They have advanced to the semi finals where they will face Argentina. I suspect their journey will end there but you never know. Go Canada.

Well done to Canada! Although I’m primarily focused on the Euro matches, I am aware that Copa America is taking place too - I’ll keep an eye out for the Canada Argentina game. Should be a great watch!
As for England - I find their performance has been lacklustre at best; they’ve had a good few strokes of luck, but I’m not sure they can get past Spain if they do meet up in the finals. I find the Eastern European teams have been great - they play with real enthusiasm, determination and zeal. I’m sorry they get knocked out, they deserve to stay in longer. Sometimes I can’t help but wonder why the referees give fouls for one bad move, then ignore the next blatant bad one.

I will be shouting for Canada. They’re up against a tough side, but as you rightly say, you never know. It would be absolutely fantastic if they won! Or at least give Messi a run for his money.

Thanks, Chris, for your comments and for your most welcome football chat.

@cocokinetic England was very fortunate to get past Slovakia. Bellingham’s brilliant bicycle kick goal with 30 seconds of added time left saved their bacon. I found their game against Switzerland quite uninspiring but at least they got through on penalty kicks. Now we’ll see how they do against the Dutch. As for Canada, they don’t usually do well on the world stage but they have been playing their hearts out in this tournament. They faced Argentina in the group stage, losing 2-0 but they didn’t embarrass themselves, in fact I feel they actually outplayed Argentina in the first half and were unlucky not to score. Argentina came out with guns blazing in the second half and scored twice so Canada knows what they are in for on Tuesday. The experts say their odds of winning are less than 10% but I’m reminded of that classic line from Dumb and Dumber - “So you’re saying there’s a chance”. Go Canada! (and England)
