So we decided to go back to the restaurant from the Chinese New Year dinner. This time though, I did have a camera. Here is a general pic of some of the dishes. Chinese banquets are usually eaten at a round table with a lazy susan so that everyone is equi-distant from the food. And, you can all face each other and chat.
This dish is originally done with beef, but we got it with fish. It is a soupy dish, comes with noodles on the bottom and red chili peppers. Quite yummy.
We also ordered crab which came cooked 2 ways: just plain and fried in batter (not shown but extremely healthy, LOL)
We also had lobster. The chinese way to eat lobster is to steam and then cook it up in a sauce:
We had other stuff like a chicken and spinach dish, yang-chow fried rice and "meat cookie" which is a pork dish which the restaurant made with salt cod. I love salt cod, but must admit that I prefer my grandmother's version of the meat cookie which she made with water chestnuts and ginger.
The highlight, since it was Big J's birthday, was a chocolate truffle cream puff cake.
Look's like the weight-loss goes out the door this week.
