Best Culinary Dominatrix

In Soo Jung, In Soo

In Soo Jung doesn't lightly suffer fools, the kind of fools who have the nerve to taint her heavenly potstickers with sweet-and-sour sauce ("No! You use soy sauce and vinegar on potstickers!"), the kind who want soy sauce for their egg rolls ("No! You use sweet-and-sour sauce on egg rolls!"). Yeah, yeah, on the surface the treatment recalls Seinfeld's Soup Nazi, but he wasn't nearly as sassy and sexy as Jung. When she's standing at your table wrapping the best moo shu in town and passes a finished roll your way, do not, we repeat, do not wait until everyone's served before you begin eating. "It's getting cold! Eat!" This is her dining room, and she's the boss. You play by her rules, or you will be banished from In Soo and, like a few real life moo shu exiles, you will have to beg on your hands and knees to be unbanished. At this point, she's got all the power -- you're just one of her dining minions. We have seen her, on more than one occasion, settle a dispute with five simple words: "You go! You go now!" Shocked and saddened, these unfortunate souls must then swallow their pride and apologize: "No, please, may we give you our money? Pretty please?" "No. You go! Now! Don't come back." Inevitably they do. They always do. Tails between their legs, wallet extended toward their master, they humbly return, eagerly awaiting the next round of moo shu domination.
