We came here to have dinner for Lynn's birthday! Her birthday is actually 3/28/09 on Saturday, but she'll have to meet with her kids/family on her birthday, therefore, I threw her a small dinner gathering party on Thursday night with 2 of our other friends!One of Lynn's and my friend used to own this place but it was history now. They have dim-sum daily too!
They serve this duck in 2 dishes, this is first one came out, they sliced the skin out of the roasted duck and served with chinese steam buns and green onion beneath and shrimp flavor chips with sauce on the side!
Yummy, duck skin is very crispy, not fat or oil at all. the sauce and the green onion add the good flavor in it.
This is the 2nd dish out of that Peking Duck we order. The meat was very tender and juicy, it's not greasy or oily at all. We all liked it a lot!
Always have to have veggies on the table, right? Well, Lynn picked this dish and it was so good, it's the only dish we almost finished, we ordered too much food :)-
This one has big chunk of fish fillets, shrimps, scallops, chinese cabbages, tofu and mushrooms. It was sizzling hot when it came to our table, it was so good. All the seafood weren't over cooked at all and the texture of all ingredients just tastes so light and flavorful.
The texture of sea clams and jelly fish were so Q yet not chewy at all. The XO sauce made the dish a hint of spicy and made you wish you had some rice there to go with it! This is the only dish we completely finished!
Live Lobster with Ginger & Scallion with Yee-Fu Noodle ($24.00)
Well, the live lobster was $9.00 per LB, I picked a 3 LBs one and asked them cook with ginger & scallion style, we also added Yee-Fu Noodles, that cost $6.00 extra! What's better than live lobster any way, this dish is so huge, after we finished our dinner, we felt like we haven't touched it yet.
Our friend Ken and his wife Hanae brought a cake from Bonjour French Pastry for Lynn's B-Day. This pastry is in Gardena not too far from where we work near Torrance. If you google it, you'll find a lot reviews for this place. It's so famous and good, even NBA star Kobe Bryant & other players and famous people come here all the time.
