Chinese black bean sauce has the power to make anything it touches taste meatier and more robust. More importantly, it does this almost instantly, without any long simmering required. This is especially welcome on a busy weeknight, because all I have to do is prep and cook some vegetables and meat, boil some noodles, mix in sauce, and serve.
I know what you’re going to say, why on earth would someone pay actual money for bad sushi? It was a poor decision from the start. My brain knew it would be a mistake, but my heart still had some hope. I guess I wanted to see for myself just how gross all-you-can-eat cheap sushi in Buenos Aires could be. The answer (spoiler alert): it’s really, really, bad.
