[yiddish] To eat like an animal, i.e., quickly, noisily, and in great quantity.

Ping's is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants. Perfect for family celebrations and for jews to eat at during Christmastime. I have never been there for dim sum- only many many family dinners. The menu is extensive, with amazing and sometimes
scary combinations and handy illustrations.
Things that I order regularly: calamari, seafood birds nest, sizzling stuffed tofu and eggplant, prawns with fried milk... Actually, lets pause to talk about this dish- fat juicy prawns, broccoli, some kinda savory white sauce and fried balls with sweet custardy milk inside- little clouds of heaven that I fell in love with as a child.

I once was fortunate enough to be dining during the banquet of a Chinese wedding and got to enjoy my food while serenaded karaoke style.

When celebrating birthdays here, the staff has an absurd birthday song recording they play over the speakers as they sing to you.

Anyway- fresh, family style dishes- coming here regularly means having your set dishes you must order because you crave them and having a billion more choices to try something new.
