You see this table setting? Little did it know it was going to have one of the biggest workouts in a looong time coming...as my students like to say in South Korea, "ahhhhhhh saaaah!!!!" (it means awesome)
First up, a mixed vegetable and tofu dish. Man, if only you could see the smile on my face after finally eating a real Chinese stir fry in such a long time...
The second dish was a beef stif fry with some zucchini and mushrooms...
I had roast duck noodle soup for my afternoon tea "snack"...and for dinner, we had roast goose...yes, roast goose. It tasted just like duck but the meat tasted juicier and sweeter:
Another stir fry dish, this one had snow peas and I can't remember what the meat component was...I was too busy eating:
There always has to be lots of vegetables for dinner. Here we have some greens, similar to watercress served in a hot pot...the bowl reminded me of a "dol sot" in South Korea:
Now this was the watercress dish stir fried with pickled tofu:
I brought both of my cameras on my 3 day rendezvous...here's a video of the the busy kitchen:
Now, if you have a friendly relationship with the restaurant management you will most likely always end up getting complimentary dessert. Normally it's red bean dessert soup or some other kind of hot dessert soup. We had our choices and I went with the PUMPKIN dessert soup...now this was a first for me. It tasted like sweet potato soup instead:
I was pretty content after this dinner. However, I was saving myself for the real reason why I love Hong Kong so much--Hui Lau Shan dessert chains (known as Creations Dessert in the USA). That post will be coming in the morning...until then, goodnight!
