We met up with friends for dinner in Chinatown. There were 8 of us so we decided to try one of their set menus plus add a dish. This set menu was only $88 and included lobster and crab plus we added the tofu clay pot. Ron and I had eaten here before and enjoyed it so I think that was one of the reasons why he chose it for our dinner tonight.
The soup was a mostly tofu with shrimp and the free appetizer was fried chicken wings.
This is the tofu clay pot with plenty of mustard greens and mushrooms. Very yummy.
The lobster, garlic, was a bit small but tasted really fresh.
Sauteed catfish with black bean sauce. I bit hard to eat with all the bones.
The crab, ginger, also a bit small but prepared well.
A whole chicken served with a ginger sauce. Parts of it were tough the breast meat was good and although the sauce a bit oily, it was very ginger-y.
Free dessert of black sesame soup, so fresh that we had to wait for it because they were making a whole new batch.
Our meal also included a dish of mustard greens, salt & pepper pork, and honey walnut prawns. For 8 people, the entire meal $130 (that includes tax & tip).
After dinner, we gathered at our apartment to share some moon cakes brought back from our friends on their recent trip to Taiwan. These were literally bite size but still so dense that it’s hard to eat a whole one. Delicious with freshly brewed oolong and jasmine teas.
