The Ambassador Program’s visit to Tito Rad’s turned into a transcendent experience when the Flying Spaghetti Monster revealed himself in an otherwise ordinary bowl of pansit palabok. (See my other pictures of that event in my Facebook photo album.)

Update, 14:00: In an odd coincidence, another openly gay, non-Filipino Jackson Heights resident posted a ’blog article this month consisting of a picture of pansit palabok shot in a different Queens neighborhood: Tony Crespo, “At Red Ribbons in Woodside having Palabok and Mango cake,” NYC Gay Cop, 8 March.
