Ho Foods Brings Beef Noodle Soup To The East Village

The growing Taiwanese Scene in New York City now offers Taiwanese comfort food in the East Village. Richard Ho is serving as both the owner and chef for Ho Foods. The specialty of this new restaurant is beef noodle soup prepared as modern, home-style Taiwanese food.

The restaurant seats ten, and is between First Avenue and Avenue A at 110 E 7th Street. This is the same space once occupied by Porchetta, the sandwich shop. Richard Ho has previously worked for Blue Ribbon Sushi in both Columbus Circle and Brooklyn. Taiwanese restaurants are becoming increasingly popular in NYC. Ten years ago only a few Taiwanese restaurants were open in NYC, and today there are dozens. Richard Ho stated his food is a reflection of the cooking his mother did, although he has made modifications for modernization.

The signature soup of the restaurant is beef noodle, and made using doubanjiang, a fermented bean paste, rock sugar, and numerous spices including red Sichuan peppercorns, cinnamon, clove and licorice. Richard Ho uses beef shank for his soup, and the broth consists of beef feet, bones, and marrow, and requires 24 hours to prepare.

The diners at Ho Foods can choose between wide or thick wheat noodles, and their options include adding tenderloin, extra spicy, extra rich, or extra spice and rich for an additional charge. The base cost for his soup is $14.50, and for an additional $7, extra soup is available. The menu is extremely limited because the space is quite small. In addition to the soup, some side dishes are available including soy cucumbers, pickled cabbage, daily greens, minced pork rice and homemade, soft tofu. The tofu includes sweet soy, a century egg and bonito.

Ho Foods serves dinner between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. every Tuesday through Sunday, but closes on Mondays.

Insights on Betty DeVos Confirmation as Education Secretary

The United States Senate confirmed Betty DeVos as secretary of education with a very slim 51-50 vote. Vice President Mike Pence cast the tiebreaker which represents the very first time a cabinet member carried out this action. During the confirmation proceedings, Ms. DeVos emphasized she knows that many Americans attend public schools although her views about the matter will not change. She mentioned one particular case in a public institution in Washington where mentors did not manifest any resourcefulness but chose to remain in a “receive mode.”

 

 

The Problem with Public Schools

 

 

Republican political strategist Greg McNeilly who collaborated with Betty DeVos to a great extent realizes the central predicament of government-run schools in the country. These learning entities do not perform credibly compared to other developed nations as demonstrated by test scores of students. Mr. McNeilly believes the education head can explain better what American should expect from these schools.

 

 

The confirmation process proved uncertain for Betty DeVos. She did not seem convincing in answering queries regarding education policies and federal legislation. Some colleagues argued Betty demonstrated her anger at being described as badly informed about official education matters. In fact, she believes that answering criticisms indicate a waste of time contrary to what President Donald Trump stated. Ms. DeVos dismissed the contempt in public by insinuating her confirmation turned out as a “bear” during her initial meeting with employees of the Department of Education.

 

 

As one of the first official functions of Secretary DeVos, the outspoken lady summoned National Education President Eskelsen Garcia and another teachers’ union official (with the surname of Weingarten). The latter responded to that call and maintained that the meeting would not produce positive results. However, both ladies revealed plans to go to schools together.

 

 

Betty DeVos Benevolence

 

 

Published accounts described Betty as a generous soul involved in educational-choice pressure or lobby groups. In the 1990s, she worked (of course without financial compensation) as a board member of national charity organizations. These associations, American Education Reform Council and Children First America, aimed at expanding educational preference employing tax credits as well as vouchers. Ms. DeVos and husband, Dick played a significant role in ratifying the first charter school act of Michigan State in 1993. Learn more: http://www.betsydevos.com/education/

 

 

In 2000, the couple tried hard but failed to amend the State Constitution allowing tax-credit scholarship grants or vouchers. According to residents, the tragic outcome proved appalling because many households in Michigan specifically in metropolitan school districts showed desperation for better alternatives in education. Ms. Betty grew up in Michigan (Holland). Her father, Edgar Prince, founded a multi-billion dollar enterprise and supported conservative Christian advocacy.

 

 

Betty’s spouse came from a more well-off family. Dick’s father established the multi-level giant, Amway and ran without success as Michigan governor. Critics always cite Ms. DeVos lack of affiliation with public high schools and colleges. They claim the moneyed family did not have to worry about lack of money in paying for their education and those of their children. The iron lady exemplified someone who hates traditional public schooling.

Joseph Bismark: Different From Other Businessmen

I truly admire Joseph Bismark. It takes a lot of strength and spiritual mindedness to achieve such a high level of success and fame and still keep a level head as well a humble heart. It is easy for people to fall into the trap of seeing themselves as greater than others. However, this article that I have read on the WordPress blog called Citizen Shame, has shown that Joseph Bismark is not that easily swayed by his own success. I could definitely learn from him and his ways of conducting business and relating with people both as his workers and customers.

He is so passionate about improving the lives of others that he has started businesses with the sole purpose of helping others achieve their goals in fitness, business, spirituality and other aspects of their lives. Many people that work with him and conduct business with him notice a difference in him. He is a powerful leader, and yet he makes other people comfortable around him. People often walk away inspired to live better lives after being around him. This keeps them coming back to him and his business. They not only buy his products, but they also listen to his advice on living well.

The majority of his time is spent with the RHYTHM foundation which he himself has got going. RHYTHM is dedicated to improving a sense of well being for people who are interested. It is easy to see that Joseph Bismark has learned a lot from his time spent in the mountains. He has learned a lot of spiritual principles. He has also learned how to clear his mind and break free of all the troubles and concerns of the world. He has seen the light in himself and therefore has recognized the light in others. He wants to bring that out of others so that they can live life more abundantly.
