Hot Fuzz

Watched this flick in Boston after a nice kayak trip on the Charles.
Brilliant escapist fun, from the same people who made Shaun of the Dead. Highly recommend it.
Cop gets posted to a middle-of-nowhere village in england which hasn't had a single crime in 20 years. Obviously things don't stay as quiet any longer.

Rangoon is a Burmese Restaurant in Philadelphia. Burmese food seems to have a fascinating mix of chinese, thai and Indian influences.

I had the firecracker lentil fritter (which is almost identical to desi masala vadai), thousand layer cake with vatana dip (which looks and tastes like a parotta with yellow dal curry) and a monsoon vegetable. I found the flavoring quite nicely balanced and light.

I would rate it a definite try :-)
