This evening we celebrated Annie’s birthday at Great China restaurant in Downtown Berkeley. I made a reservation online for 7pm. We arrived at 6:45pm and had to wait. Iris enjoyed watching the cars drive by.
Dinner overall was delicious. I was too busy watching the kids that I didn’t get to take photos but I highly recommend the double skin noodles, peking duck, walnut prawns, and mei cai ko ro. Iris ate bits and pieces but was very distracted by the noise inside the restaurant.
We ended the dinner with a cake from Ruby King Bakery. One of my coworkers recommended this bakery as their cake was very moist and not too sweet. Annie and Simon enjoying cake.
Also, just wanted to mention, the restaurant says they usually charge a cake cutting fee per person (like the corkage fee when you bring your own wine) but they ended up not adding it to our bill. But, just wanted to mention it, in case anyone goes there to eat and brings a cake, I wouldn’t want anyone to be surprised like we were.
