you re right, hitting is not mentioned in the podcast. i guess there is a tiny mistake in the podcast. first hitting, then cutting would be correct.

小姐 (xiao jie) is a normal way to address a waitress in Nanjing. I say this from my own experience (in years, not month). Now that I live in Beijing this is unthinkable. Jenny, you re right!

i think the irregularity of the pieces is due to the fact that the cucumber is first hit with the big chinese cutting knife. then its cut into pieces. no joke, its done this way!
